Originally posted to HFF by HFF Senior Director Kerry Hawkins and Associate Michael Restivo in HFF’s Boston office. In the world of commercial real estate, only a handful of product types can truly be classified as mission critical – healthcare facilities and data centers are two that immediately come to mind.  It’s not surprising that, because of their importance to our daily living, the sheer cost associated with developing either one of these product types is dramatically more expensive than an office or industrial building.  Data centers have their own cost nuances: They need to be located within close proximity to major fiber optic trunk...
