Prince William’s Board of County Supervisors is going to hold a public hearing on a proposed data center facility in Northern Virginia later this week. The purpose of the meeting is to decide whether to rezone the 196.28 acres of land across three properties from agricultural to industrial use. Although there’s no confirmation of which Company is behind the data center, Yondr is most likely the facility’s owner.

The proposal shows that three land bays of data centers will have a maximum building height of 75 feet. Aside from that, up to 89 acres of land will not be developed. Close to 40% of the property will also be an open space. Report also shows that the Company will pay $2.46 million to the Prince William County to reduce the data center’s effect on the quality of water and fire and rescue services.
