Amazon proposes two-building campus in Virginia’s Stafford County

Amazon is planning to develop a new data center campus in Stafford County, Virginia, at the Potomac Church Tech Center. The company has filed for permission to rezone approximately 50 acres of land to accommodate its data center development, spanning 510,000 square feet across two two-story buildings. In addition to the data center facilities, Amazon is also planning to construct a new substation.

The Potomac Church Tech Center is situated near the intersection of South Campus Boulevard and Old Potomac Road. Amazon aims to invest approximately $1 billion into this project. As part of the development agreement, Amazon will pay the county $7 million to build a pumping station and a water pipeline.

The land for this proposed data center campus is owned by Old Potomac Church LLC. Although the land was rezoned from A-1 Agricultural to allow for a medical clinic in 2009, it was never developed for that purpose. The current B-2 zoning allows for data centers, but restrictions on the land parcel primarily permit medical and dental use.

Amazon already has a significant presence in Northern Virginia and has been expanding in the region, including Loudoun and Fairfax Counties and Prince William. The company is also pursuing data center developments in several other Virginia counties, including Fauquier, Culpeper, King George, Spotsylvania, Caroline, and Louisa Counties. The expansion aligns with Amazon’s ongoing investment in data infrastructure to support its growing cloud computing and web services business.

Amazon’s filing for the Potomac Church Tech Center reflects the company’s continued commitment to expanding its data center presence to meet the demands of its cloud services and to support the growing technology infrastructure in the region.

Meanwhile, another unnamed developer is also planning to construct a three-building data center site in Stafford County, indicating the region’s attractiveness for data center investments.

These developments reinforce the significance of the data center industry in Virginia, as the state continues to attract major technology companies and investments in critical infrastructure.
