Land, Resources Available in Minnesota Technology Corridor

            Anoka County, along with Washington County, Connexus Energy and other regional partners, has launched the Minnesota Technology Corridor, which is an initiative to attract companies to the north metro that can utilize the high energy capacity, high bandwidth, available land and talented workforce available in the area.

            At the center of this effort is a new website: mntechcorridor.com.  This site has detailed information about this area that notes why the region is primed for new business development, especially in the technology industry.  There’s 1,000-plus acres of land available in the corridor, greater than 200-megawatt power capacity with 100 percent renewable battery storage options, significant water/sewer capacity is in place, and there are many access points to fiber-optic lines from multiple providers.  The website also has a site selector component, which serves to direct visitors to various-sized sites within the corridor, including five “premier sites” that range in size from 10 to 250-plus acres.
