Baltimore Technology Park data center expanding

March 10, 2010

The Baltimore Technology Park is building a $5 million expansion that will provide 7,000 square feet of space and support up to six megawatts of power for law firms, educational institutions, health care providers and others seeking data center services. The 30,000-square-foot technology park opened five years ago in the shell of a one-story former whiskey warehouse at 1401 Russell St., just south of M&T Bank Stadium, and now has several dozen customers. Its expansion is scheduled for completion in April. Company officials say the expansion was needed to meet continuing high demand in the area for secure and reliable data center services. For its expansion, the technology park selected Plano-Coudon, a construction management and general contracting firm based in Baltimore. Electrical work will be handled by Brown and Heim of Baltimore. The upgrade in commercial power will be provided by additional feeds from Baltimore Gas and Electric, power supplies that cannot be interrupted and Caterpillar generators.
