CoreSite Opens Second Downtown Data Center
Denver-based CoreSite Realty Corporation has opened Phase 1 of CH2, its new ground-up data center development at 550 W. 14th Pl. in the South Loop. A virtual open house is scheduled for June 10.
At full build-out, the 169,000-square-foot facility, cross-connected with CoreSite’s CH1, also downtown, will offer 18 megawatts of capacity. Phase 1 represents 56,000 square feet and six MW of capacity.
“We designed CH2 to offer a new choice in downtown Chicago for high density, easy interconnection access, and sustainably focused operations, in a highly interconnected campus to appeal to those customers who require high performance and low latency at the edge,” said Brian Warren, CoreSite’s SVP of development and product engineering.
He added, “We believe this new facility will meet our customers’ requirements, providing core retail colocation and scale solutions for high density applications with the extensive connectivity options of a multi-cloud and carrier ecosystem.”
