The BWI Technology Park consists of multiple buildings off Interstate 295.

BALTIMORE, MD (August 29, 2017) — TierPoint LLC plans to open a second Baltimore-area data center, piggybacking off an expansion last year of a facility near M&T Bank Stadium.

The new 35,000-square-foot data center will be located at the BWI Technology Park, a 97-acre project developed by St. John Properties off Interstate 295 and Nursery Road.

St. Louis-based TierPoint plans to invest $10 million into the project. The data center is expected to open in spring 2018.

Jim Weller, a vice president and general manager at TierPoint, said the expansion allows the firm to meet the demand of a “rapidly growing number of information and cybersecurity firms in the BWI corridor.”

TierPoint has 40 data centers in 20 U.S. markets.

The company completed a 3,000-square-foot expansion of the Baltimore facility in the fall, bringing the building to 30,000 square feet. The company said at the time was considering a further expansion in the local market.

The Baltimore data center is located 1401 Russell St.
