2022 Economic Development Week
Fairwinds Landing Project
Last week, Fairwinds Landing, LLC. announced that it has signed a definitive agreement with Norfolk Southern Railway Company for a 30-year lease of the company’s Lambert’s Point Docks. The project will involve over $100 million in capital investment and will host over 500 new jobs.
Fairwinds’ vision is to transform the property into a world-class maritime operations and logistics center that supports the offshore wind, defense, and transportation industries. The facility will be rebranded as “Fairwinds Landing” to mark its transformation.
Covering 111 acres, it is one of the top East Coast facilities able to support the offshore wind industry. The property features 6,000 linear feet of waterfront infrastructure and pier space that boasts more than 30 feet of water depth, as well as deep water access, no air draft restrictions, and proximity to two large offshore wind developments in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.
