TierPoint to Construct “Tier III” Data Center Near St. Louis

TierPoint disclosed plans to construct a new, 23,000 square-foot “Tier III” data center in Westport, St. Louis County, Missouri. The facility – which will include 14,500 square feet of production or “raised floor” space – is part of a $20 million expansion commitment.

The data center will be the first of its size in the St. Louis metropolitan area, its third in St. Louis and fourth in the state. Tierpoint operates 40 data centers in the U.S. to support its comprehensive portfolio of cloud, colocation and other IT infrastructure solutions.

“Missouri is a leading destination for businesses in the tech industry, and we are excited that TierPoint is expanding its footprint in our state by establishing a fourth facility here,” said Governor Mike Parson. “TierPoint’s investment in Missouri, when it has the ability to locate anywhere in the country, proves our central location and business-friendly economy is fostering market access and creating economic opportunity. We appreciate TierPoint choosing to grow in Missouri and look forward to its continued success.”

“Our decision to build this new facility was driven by strong and growing demand for world-class data center space in St. Louis and throughout the Midwest,” said TierPoint Chairman and CEO, Jerry Kent. “As a lifelong resident of the area, I’m extremely pleased that TierPoint was in position to answer this demand and expand the geographic diversity of the region’s commercial data center options.”

Tierpoint noted that it has secured an anchor tenant for the new location, which is projected to be finished and open to clients in Q2, 2022.
