Quantum Loophole, Inc., a developer of Gigawatt-scale master-planned data center communities, has announced that the company has won the Location Award 2022 in the first edition of The Tech Capital Global Awards. The Tech Capital Location Award is the only annual prize to recognize geography for its attractiveness and investor-friendly climate when dealing with digital infrastructure investors and operators.

Quantum Loophole's master-planned data center campus in Frederick County, Maryland offers a city-scale infrastructure for hyper-scale, colocation, and purpose-built data center developers. The more than 2,100-acre site sits just 20 miles from the Ashburn ecosystem. The company offers data center developers strategic expansion capacity while enabling rapid scale deployments to keep pace with customer demands in a highly land-and power-constrained region.
Connectivity will be enabled by the company’s QLoop network, a fiber ring, set to be one of the most robust regional conduit systems to ever be constructed, engineered to hold more than 200,000 strands of fiber, with a latency under 1ms to Ashburn. When this ring is complete, customers can buy or lease conduits or dark fiber between Ashburn and Quantum Frederick’s site in Maryland.
As with many US states, in July 2020, Maryland passed data center tax incentives that offer an exemption from the state sales and use tax for up to 20 years. This means that the data center infrastructure and servers enjoy no personal property taxation during this time, a significant benefit to colocation and enterprise data center owners and operators.
"The Quantum Loophole team has made it possible to bring this first-of-its-kind master-planned data center community to Frederick County, Maryland. We are changing the way hyper-scale data center developments are deployed while preserving surrounding ecology and existing historical structures. Quantum Loophole’s Frederick County location is in proximity to a market that is constrained for future development. It’s time for companies to ensure their future data center developments are in the right location," comments Josh Snowhorn, founder and CEO of Quantum Loophole.
Quantum Loophole reimagines the site selection process for hyper-scale and mass-scale data center developments. Its first project, in Frederick County Maryland is designed to provide the digital infrastructure industry with a 10-20 year road map inclusive of land, power, water, and fiber network infrastructure.
