CoreSite Realty Corporation is under construction on Phase I of its new colocation data center location in downtown Chicago, known as “CH2.”

The CH2 data center is designed to leverage an interconnected campus environment with plans to deliver:

  • Connection via redundant high-count dark fiber to CoreSite’s CH1 data center, the company’s key interconnection hub in Chicago, positioning the new data center to deliver a rich community of enterprises, content providers, networks with 40+ domestic and international carriers, leading cloud service providers with native cloud on-ramps, and best-of-breed solution partners to further serve customers’ needs
  • Purpose-built space and infrastructure to support high-growth requirements for digital transformation and hybrid cloud demands in the heart of downtown Chicago

“We’re excited to have under construction an enterprise-class, purpose-built data center designed to deliver 18 megawatts of power and 169,000 net rentable square feet of capacity in downtown Chicago,” said Matt Gleason, vice president and general manager, CoreSite. “We expect to complete the first phase of the building next year, delivering an efficient data center design capable of supporting high density requirements and enabling customers to solve for mission critical, performance-sensitive hybrid cloud applications.”
