Lenexa Lands Data Center

A national IT company based in Dallas has unveiled plans for building a 50,000-square-foot data center in Lenexa, its third facility in the Kansas City region.

In a news release this morning issued by the Kansas City Area Development Council, officials from DataBank said they had evaluated several markets across the U.S. and chose to expand in Kansas City because it had available utility power, network providers, a strong tech labor force and a collaborative regional business environment.

“Building a third data center in Kansas City demonstrates the confidence we have in this market,” the company’s CEO, Raul Martynek, said in the release. “Kansas City is a great place to do business, and we’ve seen consistent demand from local and regional enterprises for the quality data center space and services we offer.”

The company provides enterprise-class data center, cloud, and interconnection services.
