QTS has revealed its plans to develop a data center on an 800-acre site in Prince William County, Virginia. The company’s plans are part of the controversial move by the county to rezone over 2,100 acres of land in Manassas, Northern Virginia, for developing data centers. A spokesperson for QTS told Prince William Times that it had approached Prince William County to buy land for its proposed Prince County Digital Gateway project.

The statement also noted that this is an amazing chance to play a pivotal role in what could potentially be the most important economic development initiative in Prince William County’s history. In addition, the spokesperson noted that QTS has a history of being a supportive, considerate, and sustainable company in every neighborhood it has capacity in. QTS plans to create over 1,000 temporary and permanent jobs with the data center development over the next 18 years. It also plans to invest between $4.9 and $7.5 billion over the same period.
