WHY KANSAS CITY
 

Kansas City is good for business because of its central location, robust telecommunications infrastructure, superior energy capability, and a supportive local economic development community that was among the earliest second-tier cities to market suitability for data centers. The Kansas City area also benefits from one of the deepest IT talent pools in the central U.S. due to a concentration of financial services, telecommunications, data processing, software and engineering firms.

KC Location

Kansas City is centrally located in the US which reduces the likelihood that KC-based operations will become a target for disruption. Kansas City is consistently ranked among the best for constant, uninterrupted power service. Kansas City also offers one of the lowest utility costs in the country (approx. .05 per kWh), significantly decreasing operating expenses.

Low Natural Disaster Occurrence Probability

  • The US Geological Survey map shows the Kansas City area to be in relatively little threat to significant activity for earthquakes.
  • The National Severe Storm Lab map illustrates the total annual threat of tornadoes in the US. The mean number of days per year with one or more events within 25 miles of KC is 1.0 days.

Businesses locating within Kansas City and the state of Missouri are eligible for several incentive programs which, at the time of initial investment, offer direct cost reductions.

  • Utility - five year decreasing discount equivalent to one year of free electricity
