With decades of private equity real estate experience, Metro Edge’s leaders have an eye for investment opportunities that are traditionally overlooked.

“T5 is excited to be working with Metro Edge because we believe they have significant growth potential. I have worked in the data center industry for 25 years and I believe Metro Edge’s unique strategy combined with a thoughtful approach to generating social impact will help to differentiate them from their competitors in the future.” – Aaron Wangenheim, Chief Operating Officer at T5 Data Centers

“The data center industry is growing rapidly but it faces a projected skilled labor shortage of 300,000 people over the next decade. The industry also lacks diversity in age, gender and race. Metro Edge is an exciting firm to watch because they don’t view diversity as an add-on, but as key to building world-class operations that drive value for both clients and investors.”– Steve Holland, Principal, Data Center Solutions & Strategy at JLL and Metro Edge Board Member

“Metro Edge is a new player, but they have formed impressive relationships with some of the best-in-class construction, management, leasing and investment firms in the data center industry. They are definitely a firm to watch in the future.” – Jordan Thompson, Senior Vice President, CBRE Data Center Solutions

By leaning into challenges, we find value that others don’t recognize—and create new value through purpose-driven investments with positive social impact.
