Spotlight: Facebook’s $1.75 Billion Data Center at White Oak

In October 2017, Facebook announced it would invest $1 billion to build and power the first phase of its hyperscale data center complex at White Oak Technology Park. The initial build out of the 970,000 square-foot facility began in earnest thanks to Henrico’s expedited permitting and approval process, and the first steel was erected only five months later.

Less than a year later, Facebook announced plans to expand its Henrico Data Center by investing an additional $750 million to construct three additional buildings at White Oak Technology Park. Once completed, the complex will total 2.4 million square-feet and employ 200 full-time personnel.

Owned by the Henrico Economic Development Authority, White Oak Technology Park offered Facebook a combination of connectivity, robust infrastructure, and value. To improve the County’s competitiveness for data centers, Henrico County’s Board of Supervisors voted to lower the tax rate on data centers from $3.50 per $100 to $0.40. In addition, due to a new renewable energy tariff designed by Dominion Energy and Facebook, hundreds of millions of additional dollars will be invested in the construction of multiple solar facilities in Virginia to power Facebook’s Henrico Data Center with 100 percent renewable energy.

Facebook joins existing data centers in White Oak Technology Park, taking advantage of Virginia's and Henrico County’s advantageous tax structures and industry specialization. Find out more.
