DuPont Fabros Pays $58 Million for AOL Center

DuPont Fabros has paid $58 million to buy a 230,000 SF northern Virginia data center from AOL.

DuPont Fabros, the Washington, D.C.-based technology real estate specialist, has paid $58 million to acquire a 230,000 square foot northern Virginia data center built by America Online, the Washington Post reports. DuPont Fabros, which recently sold five data centers to Digital Realty Trust for $92 million, expects to have a tenant for the facility by the fall.

The Post also reports that Fortress Technologies (formerly DataCentersNow) has leased its Manassas site, which has been vacant since 2001.
