Koman Eyes Missouri Plot for Data Center

February 10th, 2009 : Rich Miller

The Koman Group is working with officials in Boone County, Missouri to develop a 192-acre tract as a data center, according to local media reports. Koman was one of the developers of a huge speculative project in Illinois that was later leased by Microsoft and will soon become one of the world’s largest data centers.

Ewing Industrial Park has replaced the Koman Group to develop the property.


Ewing Industrial Park of Columbia, Missouri is in an exceptionally strong position among development sites in the Midwest. The location sits on an unparalleled physical crossroads of power transmission, data infrastructure, water source, and transportation access. In concert with the physical aspects of the site, the Park is remarkably located with respect to intellectual assets, with easy access to world-class researchers in multiple global research-based organizations, including the University of Missouri, Danforth Plant Center, and Monsanto, among others.

The Ewing Industrial Park can easily accommodate a 150 acre industrial customer with up to 280 acres of total "shovel ready" area planned.  The industrial park offers the following assets in place or adjacent to the site.

  • Water (1.5 million gallon elevated tower)
  • Sewer
  • Redundant telecommunication with Centurytel Metro Ethernet to site and Fiber Path Technologies are available
  • High service gas
  • High service electric with multi-feed, multi-supplier substation on-site
  • Landfill adjacent to the site
  • 5 lane arterial (Missouri Route B)
  • Access by interchange to US Highway 63 (3.1 miles)
  • Access by interchange to I-70 (4.7 miles)
  • Fully signalized access to Missouri Route B
  • Direct access to COLT Railroad (Transload Facility) with Connection to Norfolk Southern
  • Directly adjacent to rail car transfer station
  • Columbia School District with Hallsville School District on site
  • Pre-graded sites with average site grades 0%-2%
  • Existing industrial uses

Here are some pictures of the site.
