Data center provider TierPoint, has announced plans to expand its data center in Seattle by approximately 18,000 square feet.

This expansion will add about 1.5MW of critical load capacity to TierPoint existing data center in Seattle’s KOMO Plaza. The project is scheduled to be completed and made available to customers later this year, bringing the total critical capacity of the Seattle data center to about 5MW.

“We already have commitments from customers for some of the expanded capacity, and additional room to support the robust demand we’re seeing for colocation and cloud solutions in the Pacific Northwest. Seattle is a key market for us and one of the fastest-growing markets for IT and other technology companies in the country,” said Boyd Goodfellow, Region Vice President of TierPoint.

Few days earlier, TierPoint announced the completion and official opening of a 40,000 square feet data center expansion in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park (RTP).

The construction of the RTP facility started last year and was developed in partnership with Compass Datacenters. The 40,000 square feet expansion includes 18,000 square feet of added office and support space, and 22,000 square feet of new raised floor area.

The RTP facility expansion more than tripled the production space of the original data center, having an initial critical load capacity of 1.2MW and now expandable to 3.6MW. The company further stated that the expanded facility features high-efficiency cooling, diverse high-speed network connectivity, and multi-layer physical security, meeting stringent regulatory compliance standards.

In April, TierPoint closed previously announced equity investment transactions, which yielded $320 million. The equity was led by a consortium of new investors which includes Argo Infrastructure Partners, Wafra, and Macquarie Capital Principal Finance. Existing investors that also participated include Cequel III, Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, RedBird Capital Partners, The Stephens Group, and Thompson Street Capital Partners.
