196-acres of land has been rezoned for data center purposes in Gainesville, Northern Virginia. This is after the Prince William Board of County Supervisors voted that a 196-acre land off Linton Hall Road should be zoned for data center use. A 1 million square feet data center campus will also be sited in Gainesville sooner than expected. Although the firm behind the data center campus wasn’t revealed, the site could belong to Yondr.

A proposal was submitted for Zoning Changes, Plan Amendment, and building height modification to make the data centers 70ft. The local planning commission had also recommended that the project be approved sometime in June. However, all requests have now been approved at the meeting.
