The project - dubbed Fairburn Technology Center - is located at 8125 Bohannon Drive in Fulton County and is expected to be completed by 2028.

In order for the development to go ahead, the site will have to be rezoned for industrial use. The property is currently zoned for agricultural use.

The company behind Bohannon Road Venture LLC is unclear at this time. The documents have been filed by law firm Troutman Pepper Strategies. BizJournal reports the LLC is part of Strategic Real Estate Partners.

Atlanta is a major data center hub with operators including Microsoft, CoreSite, QTS, DataBank, Flexential Switch, DC Blox, Edged Energy, Stack, T5, Vantage, and EdgeConneX.

Nearby in Henry County, just south of Atlanta, another large data center campus was proposed earlier this month. Details of the project have also been minimal.

Earlier this month, Georgia’s state governor vetoed a bill that would have paused tax breaks for data centers in Georgia. Georgia has given data center operators an exemption from the state’s sales tax since 2018. Companies receive a tax break if they hit certain thresholds relating to investment and job creation. The exemptions were recently extended to 2033.
