TierPoint has announced plans to build a new 23,000 sq ft Tier III data centre in the Westport area of St. Louis County, Missouri.

Backed by an approximately $20 million commitment, the facility will include 14,500 square feet of production or raised floor space.

“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 world, proves our central location and business-friendly economy is fostering market access and creating economic opportunity,” said Parson.

TierPoint has already secured an anchor tenant for the new facility, which is expected to be finished and open to clients in the second quarter of 2022.

“Our decision to build this new facility was driven by strong and growing demand for world-class data centre space in St. Louis and throughout the Midwest,” said TierPoint chairman and chief executive officer 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 centre options.”

TierPoint also operates two other data centres in downtown St. Louis. In total, the company operates 40 US data centres, coast to coast, offering a portfolio of cloud, colocation and other IT infrastructure solutions to thousands of clients.
