American Tower Metro Data Center in Atlanta adds square footage, capacity in response to growing customer demands
ATLANTA, April 26, 2021 – The American Tower Metro Data Center recently expanded its facility at 55 Marietta in downtown Atlanta. The addition brings nearly 20,000 square feet and two additional megawatts of capacity to the facility. American Tower (NYSE: AMT) recently fully integrated the data center, formerly Colo Atl, into the American Tower brand and announced the expansion, both of which demonstrate the company’s ongoing investment into the data center space and commitment to customers.
“Expanding in the telecom hub of Atlanta gives us the opportunity to provide our customers with more power and capacity, giving them a vehicle to provide stronger connectivity options,” says David Fox, Director of Business Development, U.S. Innovation for American Tower. “Since acquiring our facility at 55 Marietta nearly two years ago, we’ve been committed to providing state-of-the-art collocation facilities in downtown Atlanta, and this expansion is the latest step we’ve taken to fulfill that promise.”
With the completion of the expansion, the American Tower Metro Data Center now has a total footprint of ~44,500 square feet across the second, fifth and eighth floors. The added capacity brings the total capacity to four megawatts. Last year, additional improvements were completed, including renovations on the fifth floor, the addition of a new dedicated Meet-Me-Area, upgrades to the security and surveillance system, revamped workspaces on each floor for customers, and more.
“Our top priority continues to be providing the best possible customer service,” says Fox. “We will continue seeking out ways to offer optimal connectivity options to our customers, so we may keep providing one of the fastest, safest, and most secure collocation environments in one of the top data center markets in the U.S.”
