QTS Realty Trust (NYSE: QTS) acquired the Health Care Services Corporation (HCSC) data center in Ft. Worth, Texas for $50M in January, 2017. The data center is 260,000 sq ft with expansion capacity on adjacent land. The data center has 8MW of power and 40,000 sq ft of raised floor space which can be expanded within the existing facility.
