Loudoun County Data Centers Surge
Loudoun County has become a top location for data centers, and they're not done. Thanks to a new zoning ordinance passed by the Board of Supervisors, data centers are now permitted in the following zoning districts: commercial light industry, office and industrial parks, research/ development, and general industry (we think that covers all the bases). The amendment also increases building-height allowance and the floor-to-area ratio in the PD-IP zoning district. With a streamlined development process in place effective immediately, this world-class technology location has paved the way for more data center development. Loudoun economic development director Buddy Rizer says that the changes will reduce building time and cost. Loudoun is home to more than 50 data centers in “Data Center Alley,” and now gives companies even more opportunity for growth. For more info on our sponsor, click here.
