STATUS:  Ongoing Campus Construction

Loudoun supervisors in a controversial vote Thursday rezoned 106 acres in the county's Transition Policy Area to make room for True North, a 760,000-square-foot data center, going against staff recommendations and, according to those opposed to the facility, setting a dangerous precedent.

Those who voted to approve the Dallas-based Compass Datacenters application said data centers already exist in the area - "Data Center Alley" is about five miles away - and the facility will bring in $22 million in annual revenue that can go toward education and needed infrastructure in the county.
