Shirley T. Holland Intermodal Park

Strategically located for port-related businesses, the County-owned 1,200-acre Shirley T. Holland Intermodal Park, developed in three separate phases, provides affordable sites close to The Port of Virginia. Design and engineering work are underway to create a 44-acre, permit-ready site within Phase II that would allow development of up to 451,000-square-feet of building area.  Businesses in the park can easily access the Port using U.S. Route 460 or U.S. Route 58 or by rail on the adjacent Norfolk Southern Heartland Corridor. The park is within Foreign Trade Zone #20 and is a designated Virginia Enterprise Zone, which makes businesses eligible for federal, state and local incentive programs. The Port of Virginia also offers the Economic and Infrastructure Development Zone Grant Program for Port users. The park is home to three nationally recognized companies: Keurig Dr Pepper, Safco Products Company and Cost Plus World Market, which together employ over 700 people.
