(SALT LAKE CITY) – Hines, the international real estate firm, announced today that it has acquired a 49.5-acre acre property in West Valley City, Utah, just outside of Salt Lake City, upon which it will develop 201 Mountain View Park (“201 MVP”), a single-phased Class A industrial/logistics park. Kyle Roberts with Newmark Grubb Acres will handle the leasing for the new project.
201 MVP will consist of state-of-the-art Class A distribution warehouses capable of meeting the needs of modern logistics service providers. The proposed 727,000-square-foot industrial/logistics park will consist of four buildings—three rear-load medium distribution buildings and a bulk distribution cross-dock.
The site is located conveniently just five miles west of I-15 and is adjacent to the premier California Avenue submarket. It is less than a 12-hour drive from Los Angeles, Denver, Reno, Las Vegas and San Francisco, making it a highly desirable location for a distribution center.
Dusty Harris, senior managing director at Hines, commented, “We are excited to continue our expansion in Utah and are thrilled the firm’s first development in the area will be with this Class A asset—which will be positioned to take advantage of Salt Lake City’s uniquely dynamic industrial leasing market.”
Daniel Stephens, associate at Hines also commented, “As the crossroads of the west, Salt Lake City is centrally positioned for industrial/logistics users, and we look forward to expanding the Hines industrial platform into Salt Lake City.”
