Herndon, Virginia-based EdgeConneX will soon build a data center in western Miami-Dade County after purchasing land in the Beacon Station business park.
PFR Investments LLC, managed by Juan Manuel Fayen in Doral, sold the 6.25-acre site near the southwest corner of Northwest 106th Street and Northwest 112th Avenue for $13.7 million to EdgeConneX Miami Holdings, care of EdgeConneX.
The price worked out to $2.19 million per acre.
The land was assembled for a combined $4.35 million in 2014 and 2015.
As previously reported, EdgeConneX’s two-story data center would total 145,700 square feet and have 60 parking spaces. The facility would include an operations office, IT equipment, servicers, network gear, racks and switch gear.
This would be the third data center in the Miami market for EdgeConnX, but it would be the largest by far, as the current facilities total 65,500 and 32,000 square feet, according to the company’s website.
