After the creation of the Star League, a new wave of colonization began in the Periphery. Over the next fifty years, the base grew from a collection of warehouses to a small town. Runways for aerodyne DropShips and permanent garrison accommodations were built. Lodgings for visiting ship crews and barracks for permanent personnel, with spacious accommodation blocks and recreation facilities, sprouted around the core facilities.
But more important, Star League engineers completed dry-dock-equipped repair yards for a full-scale DropShip maintenance facility between 2620 and 2641. Similar facilities were constructed in orbit around the built, featuring a JumpShip dry-dock located in the excavated interior of Columbus’s small moon, Amor.
The Star League used the finished base extensively for the next one hundred thirty years, then finally abandoned the facility in 2780, shortly before Kerensky's Exodus. The base apparently remained unused until the Explorer Corps vessel Von Braun rediscovered it in 3023.
