ST. LOUIS (August 4, 2021) – TierPoint, a leading provider of secure, connected IT platform solutions that power digital transformation initiatives, today announced it has completed construction of a new Tier III data center at 2315 Millpark Drive in Maryland Heights, Missouri, a St. Louis suburb.

Plans to build the data center were first announced in September 2021. Backed by an approximately $20 million commitment, the state-of-the-art facility currently includes 14,500 square feet of production or raised floor space and 23,000 square feet of total space, with an additional 23,000 square feet under lease for future expansion.

World Wide Technology (WWT), a global technology solutions provider with headquarters in St. Louis, has signed on as an anchor tenant of the new facility.

"WWT's ever-expanding need for data center space drove us to partner with TierPoint," said Mike Taylor, WWT Chief Technology Officer and Executive Vice President, Services. "TierPoint's Millpark facility is close to our global headquarters and tech campus in St. Louis, which allows us to scale operationally in our Advanced Technology Center." 

The new data center is the largest of its kind in the St. Louis metropolitan area outside of downtown, where TierPoint operates two other data centers, along with a fourth Missouri data center in the Kansas City area.
