Amazon Web Services (AWS) plans to expand to the Virginia county of Louisa. Last week, the Louisa County Board of Supervisors announced that Amazon Web Services (AWS) plans to invest $11 billion by 2040 to build two data center campuses in Louisa's Technology Overlay District (TOD). The county pointed out that the project is part of the cloud company's declared $35 billion investment across the state. No information regarding the two campuses was revealed.

Amazon has an established presence in Northern Virginia and continues to grow in the region. In addition to expanding in Loudoun, Fairfax, and Prince William Counties, the company is establishing data centers in Fauquier, Culpeper, King George, Spotsylvania, and Caroline Counties.

This year, the Technology Overlay District of Louisa was established. It seeks to encourage the development of technology centers in areas of the County where existing or planned infrastructure could support their growth. The newly designated areas encompass six land parcels encompassing hundreds of acres in the county's core. It is unknown which parcels are being developed by AWS.
