May 14, 2024
The expansion of the company’s Colorado footprint will support its FlexAnywhere platform.

On May 14, Flexential announced that it is developing its fifth data center and colocation facility in the Denver area, which will support the interconnection capabilities of its FlexAnywhere® platform.

The 22.5 MW, 249,000 square-foot facility, located in Parker, Colorado, will reportedly offer high-density colocation in a structure purpose-built to meet the sustainability and efficiency requirements of Flexential customers. This expansion brings the company’s total footprint and capacity in Denver to 759,000 square feet and 49.4 MW.

Chris Downie, Flexential CEO, said in a press release, “Flexential is expanding its data center presence across the nation, and our growth in Denver highlights our role in leading industry innovation and meeting market needs. This new Denver facility is a cornerstone of our strategy, aimed at boosting Denver’s tech sector with cutting-edge, scalable computing solutions. This project reflects our commitment to forward-looking, high-density, and sustainable computing infrastructures designed to support the evolving digital needs of enterprise businesses.”

The Denver expansion follows several data center expansions across the U.S., including an additional 110MW in markets like Atlanta, Georgia and Portland, Oregon.

The new data center will begin leasing in the second half of 2024 and is expected to open in 2026.
