Ascent to open Wellston data center

WELLSTON, Mo. - A local tech company is planning a big expansion in the metro.

Ascent tells NewsChannel 5 it will build an $85 million data center near Wellston. The 15-acre STL ONE center in St. Louis County will include space where companies can store and maintain computer data.

The company says the center will provide services for St. Louis' growing biotech, life sciences and start-up industries. The plans include a hardened building shell that is capable of withstanding a hit by tornado-force winds, to protect the information inside.

Ascent already runs two data centers in the Chicago area.
