Excellent news! We’re proud to announce that Stream has been selected for the 2019 Best of Chaska Award in the Data Centers category. The Chaska Award Program is an annual awards program that honors the successes of local businesses throughout the Chaska region, located just under thirty miles from downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Currently, we operate a 7.2 MW, 75,675 square foot data center named Minneapolis I out of Chaska. In fact, one of the main reasons we established this colocation facility was to enable our customers to take advantage of the State of Minnesota’s generous tax benefits for businesses. Here are the two key ones:
- 100% sales tax rebate
- Exemptions from personal property taxes for all technology purchases in the building
As you can see, these benefits provide a powerful incentive for companies to come to the Chaska area and set up operations. This helps contribute to the local economy.
Located just 25 miles from the Minneapolis Saint-Paul Airport, the Minneapolis I data center hosts Fortune 500 companies and businesses in the commerce, finance, transportation and healthcare industries. It provides control and flexibility to customers with customizable office space, built-to-suit services and retail colocation.
Being recognized as an exemplary business by the Chaska Award Program is especially meaningful as the winner is not determined by a nomination process but through independent data analysis. Here is a quote from the full release:
“Each year, the Chaska Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Chaska area a great place to live, work and play.”
