Vantage plans to build a second data center in Virginia.
According to the popular journal website, BizJournal, Vantage is developing a new campus in Loudoun County and is going through the site plan approval process.
As per the property records, the company bought 17 acres of land worth $46 million in October 2021. The size of the data center is estimated to be 800,000 sq ft backed by 96 MW of power capacity.
Meanwhile, one of the Vantage spokesperson said, “While Vantage oftentimes acquires land for future developments, we have not made any public comments on our plans for this particular site.”
The land in question was purchased from two parties; the company bought five parcels from Belfort Park LLC for about $17.5 million total and bought the larger parcel of vacant land from FP Sterling Park Land LLC for $28.5 million. The data center site is quite proximal to Vantage’s existing campus, situated a few miles away on the other side of Darrell Green Blvd.
Buddy Rizer, executive director of economic development in Loudoun County said the process is part of the county economic development’s fast-track commercial incentive program and requires construction to start instantly after a project’s site plan is assented; the beginning of construction is reportedly projected for early next year.
“I know this is a priority project for them,” Rizer said. “I think we’re on a pretty good pace.”
