Cogent Leases Data Center Space in [email protected]

Legacy Investing arranged a data center lease with Cogent Communications in Legacy’s newly expanded [email protected] data center in downtown Minneapolis. The newly expanded building at 1001 Third Ave. South is managed and operated by T5 Data Centers.
“When we identified this property in the heart of Minneapolis, we knew it would be ideal for data center tenants who seek the benefits of operating in an edge facility,” said Legacy president and founder Daniel English. The property’s primary tenant is Sleep Number.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Sean Brady, Randy Borron, and Justin Baratz represented Legacy Investing. Scott Becker of JLL and Jonathan Larsen of Avison Young represented Cogent Communications. Lease terms weren’t disclosed.
