New Fairfax County Zoning Ordinance zMOD Supports Distribution Centers

Through the recent adoption of a new zoning ordinance (zMOD), Fairfax County has taken steps to establish distribution centers closer to consumers.

The ordinance includes a new use category for “goods distribution hub,” which, among other things, allows repurposing of commercial buildings to accommodate distribution centers and revitalize brick-and-mortar destinations. While the ordinance limits the quantity and size of delivery vehicles, it makes available a special exception approval to increase the building size or the number or size of delivery vehicles stored on-site.

McGuireWoods attorneys and planners were intimately involved in the creation of this new use category and are available to discuss strategies and opportunities to maximize distribution center and retail opportunities.
