Peel has let a 32,000 sq.ft unit at Michigan Park, MediaCityUK on a 15-year lease to data centre operator DataCentred.

Peel secured the new letting with DataCentred, after the early surrender of an existing lease with Japanese electronics giant Fujitsu Services Ltd.

Simon Lovegrove, Property Manager for Peel said, “We are delighted that DataCentred seized the opportunity to take forward the existing data centre facility at Michigan Park.”

Rupert Barron, Director of National Offices at the Manchester office of Colliers International, acted on behalf of Peel and Fujitsu Services Ltd. Mark Canning of Canning O’Neill Media acted for DataCentred.

Rupert Barron said: “There was strong interest in this building because it was a well-maintained, operational data centre which therefore removed the need for substantial capital expenditure on fitting out by any new occupier.

“On-going demand for data centres from the technology, media and telecoms sector because of the growth in cloud computing and the ever increasing need for data storage capacity, ensured a swift letting of the premises.”

DataCentred is a new company providing datacentre, computing and cloud computing services to public and private sector organisations.
