“With the expansion of our KC3 facility, we will be building out Data Halls 2 and 3. The scope of the project includes adding 9,300 sq. ft. in Data Hall 2 and 8,050 sq. ft. in Data Hall 3 and adding an additional 2MW of capacity to the building,” said Tony Qorri, vice president of Construction for DataBank. “Kansas City is a market where we have demand and we’re looking to max out that facility by building out the other two data halls. This is a significant expansion that will triple the sellable white space across the footprint of the entire facility.”

“DataBank has been a foundational business partner in the Kansas City tech community,” said Tim Flynn, regional vice president of midwest sales for DataBank. “This expansion demonstrates our commitment to the market and belief in its vitality today and in the future.”

Ranked in a CNBC study as one of the top areas for business, Kansas City is in the heart of Silicon Prairie and an increasingly popular location for data-hungry enterprises.
