Westport Capital Partners has announced that University of Utah Health will lease one of the company’s two new office buildings in its previously announced Sugar House development located at 2300 South and 1300 East in Salt Lake City. UofU Health will be the sole tenant of 170,000 square feet in the building on the southeast corner of the development.
“University of Utah Health is the perfect partner for the Sugar House community,” said Greg Geiger, principal and portfolio manager for Westport. “Early on in the planning process we sought feedback from the community on what they wanted to see in the area. One of the key themes we heard was that Sugar House really needs more daytime users for existing retail and dining establishments. The new University facility will not only provide easy access to top-notch medical services, but more than 200 employees and hundreds of visitors will come into the area each day who will shop, dine and support local businesses, infusing the economy and strengthening this growing community.”
