Columbus home to Amazon, Facebook, Google data centers

  • by

The Columbus area is adding data centers so fast that it has now become one of the top 10 regions in the country for them.

A new report finds that data center space increased 146% over the past 10 years in central Ohio.

The 1.9 million square feet of space added here between 2012 and 2021 trailed only Washington, DC, and Dallas over that period, according to the report from 42Floors, a commercial real estate listing service.

The region now has 4.6 million square feet of space for data centers, ranking ninth among the country’s metro areas. Washington, DC, is No. 1 with 25.5 million square feet and Dallas is second with 14 million square feet. Columbus is behind only Chicago and Omaha, Nebraska, in data center space in the Midwest, and has added more space than both of those metro areas over the last decade.
