CoreSite, Business Partners and Chicago Dignitaries to Celebrate CH2 Facility With $15,000 Donation to San Miguel School Chicago

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CoreSite, a leading hybrid IT solutions provider and subsidiary of American Tower Corporation (NYSE: AMT) (“American Tower”), will celebrate its downtown Chicago data center, CH2, with the local business community on Thursday, November 17. CH2 opened in June 2020 when the need for digital infrastructure services was skyrocketing. Now, this CoreSite data center in Chicago supports high-density requirements and offers superior network and cloud connectivity for its new and existing customers. CoreSite and area businesses are bringing the community together at 1432 South Clinton Street for a blues-themed festivity.

The 169,000-square-foot CH2 facility is the first purpose-built data center constructed from the ground up in the downtown Chicago area. The Chicago data center market has experienced a boost due to various tax incentives and the city’s position as a major hub for internet and financial infrastructure. Since opening CH2, CoreSite has played an important role in meeting rising demand for connectivity driven by digital transformation and cloud adoption — all of which require data center services.

CoreSite will celebrate the CH2 event with representatives from the Illinois Chamber of Commerce and business partners such as Corning and Schneider Electric. CoreSite along with Klass Electric will present a $15,000 donation to San Miguel School Chicago, a school that serves academically at-risk students. The joint donation will sponsor a student for the 2023-2024 school year.
