Zayo Group (NYSE: ZAYO) has purchased a colocation data center located at 7579 W 103rd Avenue in Westminster, Colorado. The acquisition would be driven by strong customer demand in the area, specifically along a high-tech corridor located between Boulder and Denver and the underserved Northwest Corridor.

The new data center expands Zayo’s infrastructure footprint in the state of Colorado, which now includes four colocation data centers and more than 4,000 fiber route miles, including extensive metro fiber in Denver, Colorado Springs and Boulder.
