Sep 28, 2023 | Posted by Abdul-Rahman Oladimeji

Chuck Kuhn's real estate firm, JK Land Holdings, has expanded the proposed Gainesville data center via land acquisition in Virginia's Prince William County through its Wellington Road LLC affiliate. The company has also filed an application, which is currently under review, for up to 3.8 million square feet of data center.

County records note that the Wellington Road property sold for $2.5 million in 2017. However, reports from BizJournal revealed that the company purchased a 6.5-acre lot at 5731 Wellington Road in Gainesville for $9.8 million on August 16, 2023. The newly acquired parcel also borders an Amazon-owned 117-acre site planned to develop a 2.3 million square feet campus, Gainesville West and Gainesville East.

A spokesperson for the real estate firm confirmed the acquisition, noting that it would help expand the adjacent data center site. However, the spokesperson could not confirm details relating to the data center density the new acquisition might add to the project.
