Amazon delivery facility slated for Stafford’s Centreport Parkway | Latest News
Meanwhile, the identity of the tenants who will occupy a larger facility located across the street from the Amazon building is still unannounced. Holden said the nature of the business coming to that new 457,000-square-foot distribution facility has not been publicly disclosed.
“They have not yet announced a tenant, but they’ve built the building,” he said.
Elsewhere on Centreport Parkway, just north of Mountain View Road and the FedEx facility, even more large-scale construction is underway.
Last November, Stafford County supervisors voted to rezone 178 wooded acres along the parkway to make way for a sprawling facility that includes about 3 million square feet of warehouse space. Taylor Chess, president of Peterson Cos., a property management firm based in Fairfax, did not name any companies or businesses that might one day occupy the space, but had told supervisors the project could ultimately be “distribution, data [center], innovation or manufacturing.”
On Friday, Holden said the county still does not know who the tenants of those new buildings will be. Holden said the site has since been graded and construction is imminent.
Last October, Mike Zuraf, principal planner for the county, told supervisors that a traffic study commissioned by Peterson Cos. estimated that project alone could add over 7,000 cars and trucks each day to the Centreport Parkway area. He also said other businesses already approved to be built along the developing parkway corridor over the next several years could bring that number to more than 13,000 vehicles each day.
