Landmark’s diverse capital sources allow for unsurpassed flexibility.

Landmark remains highly flexible in its approach to transactions and transaction structures, offering flexibility across the credit spectrum, from asset sizes ranging from $1 million carrier switch sites to $1 billion data center portfolios. Clients benefit from high levels of agility and versatile investment structures that deliver an efficient transaction process from term sheet to closing statement.
Strategic Sale and Leaseback Transactions for Flexibility and Alleviated Cost Pressures
Many businesses today own data centers to support digital operations, yet many have found themselves with an excess of unused space and power beyond what they need for their own IT equipment. This available white space and critical power comes at a cost and operational burden to the enterprise, creating unnecessary cost burdens on their business. By selling data center infrastructure and leasing only the space required to support business operations, enterprises can restructure their costs, free up capital, alleviate cost pressures and create a more flexible solution to support their ongoing business requirements.
Landmark’s Digital Infrastructure team works alongside clients to structure the most advantageous sale and leaseback — full or partial — model for existing data centers, allowing for the quick and effective monetization of client-owned real estate. This enables clients to reduce the unnecessary burdens of unused space and power and associated operation expenses through the immediate access to capital that can be used for strategic reinvestment and reallocation.
This model empowers companies to gain access to capital resources that allow them to refocus resources on core business initiatives while still maintaining existing data center operations.
For any inquiries regarding data center acquisitions or sale / leaseback transactions, please contact us.
Full-Service Capabilities Support Customized Data Requirements
As of March 2020, the Digital Infrastructure division had acquired 16 data centers over the prior 18 months, resulting in a diverse portfolio of enterprise, colocation, cloud, wholesale, and retail data centers in the U.S. We have aggressive plans to continue this growth trajectory nationally and internationally. Landmark offers dedicated, SLA-backed data center solutions that are fully-serviced 1MW at a time. Landmark’s on-site, fully integrated model can be customized to meet the most complex, regulated and compliant requirements and SLAs.
To support this full-service capability, Landmark’s expanded data center offerings are strengthened through an exclusive partnership with BCS, a Dallas-based end-to-end facility management solutions company.

BCS serves the needs of Fortune 500 companies with national and global financial services, technology, healthcare, and manufacturing operations. We will also work with any other qualified facilities management partners if our tenants have a pre-existing relationship.
