In March, a rezoning amendment was approved to permit the entire site to be used for data centers. This site is also within the county’s Data Center Opportunity Zone Overlay District, as reported by the Business Journals.

Amazon is not alone in expanding data center operations in the area. Other major tech companies are also increasing their data center presence. Recently, Microsoft acquired 124 acres in Gainesville for $465.5 million.
