Cologix Announces Plans to Expand Columbus Data Center Campus, Investing More Than $150 Million 

Cologix has announced its second major investment in the Columbus Region with a more than $150 million expansion to its existing campus, pending local approvals. 

The expansion of its existing Worthington Woods Boulevard campus will create an additional 15 jobs and include a newly built data center, adding 36MW of power that will enable Cologix to better meet the surging demand for cloud connectivity. The investment will also support building and infrastructure costs while allowing Cologix to purchase new machines and equipment for the largest network-neutral data center campus in Columbus. The new facility will bring its total headcount to 39 employees in the Region.

“We are excited to finalize our second, multimillion-dollar investment in the Columbus Region, a priority market for our hyperscale growth,” said Cologix President and Chief Revenue Officer Laura Ortman. “We are expanding our powerful capabilities to better serve our new and existing customers in Columbus and across the Midwest.” 

Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, Cologix was founded in 2010 and has 40 data centers across 11 strategic edge markets in North America – three of which are located in Columbus due to the Region’s many advantages, including its central location as well as its existing security and connectivity infrastructure. With a growing portfolio of ScalelogixSM and digital edge facilities that provide deep connectivity capabilities, Cologix offers massive scale and tailor-made data center solutions to accelerate its customers’ digital transformation at the edge.  

“We welcome the growth of our existing data center operators and are proud to be a key location for technological advancements in the U.S.” said Andrew J. Ginther, Mayor of Columbus. “Columbus has long been a vital player in the technology sector, and we’re excited to have one of America’s leading data center companies recognize the talent and opportunities in the Region.”

The Columbus Region continues to be a desirable location for advanced computing with its reliable infrastructure, including long-haul fiber, dependable electric service, and water and land access. “Every rapidly growing industry relies on data speed and capacity to grow their business, and Cologix’s investment builds even more of that critical infrastructure here in Ohio,” said J.P. Nauseef, President and CEO of JobsOhio.
