Loudoun Supervisors To Consider 750,000-Square-Foot Data Center Proposal In Transition Area

11/14/17

The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday will consider a rezoning request to build a 750,000-square-foot data center along the west side of Goose Creek in the county’s transition policy area (TPA).

If approved, True North Data, which would sit on a property between Sycolin Road and the Dulles Greenway, would be the second data center within the TPA, next to Stonewall Business Park -- a site that includes 3.9 million square feet of data center and office uses.

The Planning Commission has been considering the proposal from Dallas-based Compass Datacenters since September. The commission has received strong pushback from neighboring residents, environmental groups, several supervisors and county planning staff.

County planning staff does not support the company’s request to rezone 105.6 acres from transitional residential to planned development office park. Staff says the proposal is inconsistent with the current Comprehensive Plan.
