Project gains Guilford's approval
The Guilford County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved Thursday local incentives for DC Blox, a fast-growing information-technology company from Atlanta.
The company is requesting economic incentives from the High Point council and Guilford County Board of Commissioners for a potential $305 million multi-tenant project. The High Point council approved its package Oct. 7.
DC Blox has four data centers in the Southeast — Atlanta, Birmingham, Ala., Chattanooga, Tenn., and Huntsville, Ala. The company is expected to make a decision by the end of the year.
The High Point Economic Development Commission said DC Blox is considering placing operations at 4131 Sheraton Court in High Point. That site is a vacant 14.4-acre site in Piedmont Centre across the street from the Bank of America Corp. call center and near a Polo Ralph Lauren property and N.C. 68.
Loren Hill, president of the High Point economic group, said the initial job creation "will be minimal.” The council was told it would be nine jobs.
Hill said each government board "considered authorizing an incentive equivalent of up to 50% of property tax revenue paid by the company and its clients."
