Athari Biosciences has selected Loudoun County for its new corporate headquarters.

The project includes a wet lab, a tech lab, research and development and office space and is expected to open in early 2022. The project is expected to create 50 jobs with a total investment of $5 million, according to the county’s Department of Economic Development.

The Board of Supervisors will consider a cash incentive of $120,000 to support the completion of the lab space at its Dec. 7 meeting. The incentive has been proposed by the economic development department, which worked with Athari’s leadership team in the search for the firm’s long-term home in the region.
