Newest and Fastest trans-Atlantic Telecommunication Cable

Telefónica, a Spanish telecom company, has constructed a 24,000-square-foot cable landing station to support three new ultra-high-speed trans-Atlantic fiber-optic telecommunication cables that have landed in Corporate Landing. The cable landing station in Corporate Landing provides high capacity, reliable connectivity options to carriers, data centers, and colocation facility operators.

The first cable MAREA, owned by Microsoft and Facebook, and operated by Telxius, was the first ultra-high-speed ​200 ​terabit fiber optic cable to arrive in Corporate Landing. BRUSA, owned and operated by Telxius​, was the second cable (138 Tbps) that became operational in 2018. One additional subsea cable, Dunant, owned by Google, became operational in 2020.

    The Virginia Beach Development Authority is seeking a Modification of Proffers to update the Design Criteria for a portion of Corporate Landing Business Park (the Park) for Council Consideration on December 7, 2021. The current Design Criteria were adopted in 1990 with an addendum added in 1998. The Design Criteria have never been substantially updated, are outdated and no longer align with the development pattern that was originally envisioned for the Park. This update is needed to:

    • Ensure that the Park remains relevant for current and future market opportunities
    • Reduce redundancy and better align the document with current code requirements
    • Consolidate multiple subsequent amendments into one user-friendly and attractive document
    • Permit more flexibility with new and innovative materials and construction methods
    • Provide more guidance on light industrial and advanced manufacturing building types

    Existing properties will continue to be subject to the existing Design Criteria that was adopted in 1990 and amended in 1998.

    Planning Commission voted unanimously to approve the Corporate Landing Design Criteria Update (Modification of Proffers) on August 11, 2021.
