Infrastructure Expansion: Zayo Acquires Data Center in Colorado


Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. has purchased a colocation facility located at 7579 W 103rd Avenue in Westminster, Colorado. The acquisition is driven by strong customer demand in the area, specifically along a high-tech corridor located between Boulder and Denver and the underserved Northwest Corridor.

The facility includes 29,500 total square feet and features diverse fiber entrances, extensive interconnectivity, robust security and highly efficient power and cooling systems. The new data center expands Zayo’s infrastructure footprint in the state, which now includes four data centers and more than 4,000 fiber route miles, including extensive metro fiber in Denver, Colorado Springs and Boulder.

In addition to serving existing and new customers, Zayo plans to support the infrastructure needs of the Front Range startup and accelerator community from this facility. This facility will be directly linked to zColo’s data center at 1500 Champa.

“Zayo continues to experience accelerating demand in the Colorado Front Range, driven by strong local growth and national requirements,” said TJ Karklins, senior vice president of Zayo’s zColo business segment. “There are limited Tier III equivalent data centers in Northwest Denver, this location is strategic and will provide excellent access to our extensive fiber network.”
