RACER Trust Participating in Data Center World Global Conference

RACER Trust today announced that Transaction Manager Steven Black is participating in the AFCOM Data Center World global conference this week in Phoenix.

Data Center World attracts more than 1,600 data center, facilities and IT infrastructure professionals, from programmers to company executives. RACER Trust has several former automotive manufacturing properties that are large enough and have the infrastructure necessary to support data center investments and operations, and RACER’s participation in events such as Data Center World is indicative of its commitment to maximize the redevelopment potential of all of its properties, said Elliott P. Laws, of EPLET, LLC, administrative trustee of RACER Trust.

“Our redevelopment team stays abreast of market trends and opportunities and has used events such as Data Center World as a springboard to property sales that are benefitting our communities,” Mr. Laws said. “As demand for data center space increases nationally, RACER Trust is there to ensure that our properties and our communities are well positioned to capture their share of investment that leads to beneficial reuse and jobs.”

RACER Trust markets its properties across multiple platforms and at various regional, national and international conferences and events, all for the purpose of attracting redevelopment and jobs to RACER communities. 

Founded in 1980 as the “Association for Computer Operations Management,” AFCOM supports and serves the data center and IT infrastructure industry through education, networking and professional development.

The Data Center World conference is through Friday.

About RACER Trust: RACER (Revitalizing Auto Communities Environmental Response) Trust was created to clean up and position for redevelopment properties and other facilities owned by the former General Motors Corp. before its 2009 bankruptcy. RACER is one of the largest holders of industrial property in the United States, and when it was formed was the largest environmental response and remediation trust in U.S. history. When the Trust was formed, it owned properties at 89 locations in 14 states, principally in the Midwest and Northeast. The Trust was created by a settlement agreement in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court between the U.S. Government, the 14 states where the former GM properties are located, and the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe, which owns land adjoining one of the properties in Upstate New York.
