CenterCal Properties, developer of the popular Farmington Station in Davis County, has broken ground on a new major retail, entertainment and office complex in Riverton. Dubbed Mountain View Village, the development sits on 13400 South at the Mountain View Corridor.
According to CenterCal CEO Fred Bruning, Mountain View Village will be built in three stages beginning immediately with an initial stage that will include approximately 400,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. Bruning declined to name specific retailers or restaurants signed up for slots in the initial 60 units in Phase 1 except for the anchor tenant, which will be a Harmons grocery store.
The total Mountain View Village will consist of 85 acres when complete. The next phase will include additional specialty retail and the third phase will focus on the office complex. Phase 1 is scheduled to open in the summer of 2018.
“Our intent, in all of our developments, is to create places that help unify the unique communities in which we build,” said Bruning. “We’ve seen it happen at our other locations and we are so excited to become a part of this growing and vibrant community.”
Design work for the project is under the direction of Orange Architects of Midvale and Sandy’s Layton Construction is the general contractor.
Present at a groundbreaking event on the site last week were Bruning, CenterCal vice president of development Jim Steman, Riverton Mayor Bill Applegarth and Val Hale of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, along with other local leaders.
According to a statement from CenterCal, a key feature of the development will be a community gathering space featuring free entertainment such as open-air concerts near a fountain area. CenterCal has commissioned sculptor Brian Keith to create a large bronze cast eagle statue that will be the centerpiece of the fountain.
“As Riverton continues to grow, we knew we needed a central place for people to congregate,” said Applegarth. “Mountain View Village will have so much to offer to our community — in retail, entertainment, restaurants, and a place to just visit with family and neighbors.”
CenterCal Properties was found-ed in 2004 by Fred Bruning and Jean Paul Wardy and is a commercial real estate company focused on investing, developing, leasing and managing its own projects.
