Illegal tire graveyard could become Point One’s $1.6bn data center campus

A Fauquier County board supervisor accidentally identified the property for Point One’s proposed $1.6bn data center campus after receiving notice of an illegal tire dump. Upon visiting the site, District Lee supervisor Chris Butler realized that the 234-acre site was the ideal location for a data center: it was adjacent to a substation and a wastewater treatment plant – perfect for gray water cooling – and had easy access to fiber optic cables.
