Chicago Illinois, October 24, 2023 – Metro Edge Development Partners (Metro Edge), a commercial real estate firm focused on technology-driven developments, announces today the participation of its Co-Founder & CEO, Craig Huffman, in an upcoming panel discussion at DCD Connect | Virginia 2023, on Tuesday, November 7, 2023 in Leesburg, VA. Huffman will participate in a session titled “Does more MWs create more risk? What next for NoVA and other data center hubs?,” taking place from 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. ET.
Given Virginia’s strategic geographical importance and its role in internet traffic, the panel will address the complexities of data center developments, particularly in hubs like NoVA. Discussions will focus on the balance between the benefits of geographic concentration and the need for operational safeguards, as well as evolving redundancy strategies. Huffman, with his extensive background in real estate private equity, will share insights from Metro Edge’s ongoing project in the Illinois Medical District (IMD). His commitment to urban data center development and Metro Edge’s emphasis on a social impact plan will be central to the dialogue. The session aims to provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of data center development strategies, encompassing both regional and global perspectives.
