The ever-expanding data center hub in Prince William County is to see another addition, after Prince William County Officials voted 6-1 to grant a rezoning request for a planned four million sqft data center campus in Bristow. The data center developer is Stanley Martin, which, according to reports, is planning to develop a data center park on more than 250 acres of land, a parcel of land which was earmarked for housing development.

The project is named the Devlin Technology Park, and while the details are yet to be finalized and released, it could result in 4.25 million sq ft (395,000 sqm) of development.

Gainesville Commissioner Richard Berry who cast the only vote against the request said: “I have made it a practice in general to not support any data center proposal or application that is outside the current overlay district while we are still waiting for the overlay expansion study." Meanwhile, Jonelle Cameron, an attorney with Walsh, Colucci, Lubeley & Walsh, said: “The end data center user is not known at this time, so the exact layout is not known at this time.”
