Northern Virginia: Bristow Officials To Allow Data Center Development on Stanley Martin’s Devlin Technology Park

Bristow’s officials have voted in favor of a Comprehensive Plan Amendment. This amendment could see the development of a 4.25 million square feet data center campus in the area. Stanley Martin, a Virginia-based developer, is looking to have over 250 acres in Prince William County rezoned. The land was previously zoned for housing development, but Stanley Martin wants it to be used for data centers. 

According to Inside NoVA, the Board of Supervisors voted 7-1 in favor of the Comprehensive Plan Amendment. This application is happening before the planned rezoning application, which is yet to be filed. According to the county officials, the rezoning application is in the works. According to Supervisor Jeanine Lawson, the proposed data center zoning could be better for the area than residential. She added that since the land has a limestone bed, more work will need to be done if used for residential purposes than for data center construction.
