According to BizJournal, Amazon Web Services has acquired a 58.5-acre land in Prince William County, Virginia, for $87.8m. Local County records also show that the land is located at 5845 Wellington Road, Gainesville. Interestingly, the company also acquired a 58.5-acre plot in April last year. It paid $52.4 million for the property last year. Per BizJournal, AWS’ newly acquired property is located within the county’s Data Center Opportunity Overlay District. This district was explicitly zoned for the development of data centers.

In addition, the land is located close to Google’s data center project in Wellington. Both Microsoft and Iron Mountain also have data centers close by. AWS already has many data centers in Northern Virginia. The company also revealed that it would expand in Stevensburg, Chantilly, Manassas, Warrenton, and Loudoun.
