Groundbreaking Kicks Off Project Bringing Housing, Businesses, Retail To South Salt Lake
SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah – Officials are holding a groundbreaking ceremony for one of the biggest projects in Salt Lake County.
The South City project will sit on the historic Granite Mill near 2200 South and Main Street. It’s an area that’s already seen changes over the last few years, with the addition of stores, apartments and businesses.
The latest increment in the project will add more than seven acres of commercial offices, residential and retail spaces, and a hidden parking structure. Included in the first phase will be a six-story, 150,000-square-foot office building. The space is already 85% leased to companies like PDQ and GBS, which promise to bring in 350 new jobs.
Officials estimate the building will be complete in December 2020.
South Salt Lake Mayor Cherie Wood said she hopes it will bring a new sense of community to the area.
“We don’t have a downtown,” she said. “That’s why we’re doing this.”
Phase two of South City will include a 10-story apartment building wrapped around a core of parking with 800 stalls. That project is expected to be complete by December 2021. Additional phases will include more office space as well as a hotel.
The groundbreaking is happening at 10:30 a.m.
