Lets talk about a real estate project that recently reached a significant milestone and the various aspects of our 20-acre development project located in Brigham City, a suburb of Salt Lake City.

The Appeal of the Project

Eighteen months ago, our real estate team identified two adjoining land parcels with enormous potential. The strategic location of the property – adjacent to a highway interchange and opposite a Walmart SuperCenter, and the possibility of assembling the parcels into one large development plot, made it an attractive investment opportunity. Additionally, the interest shown by Marriott Hotels reinforced our conviction about the project.

Concept Development and Constraints

From initial planning to discussing with city officials, our project kept gaining momentum. Designing a project with multifaceted usage, including a hotel, apartments, townhomes, and industrial units, was a complex process. The challenge increased when city council variance came into play, affecting road construction across the property. This inflexibility forced us to adapt our plans, maintain patience and deploy tenacity.

Site Plan Adjustments

The project encoutered further difficulties when establishing an appropriate parking ratio for the varied facets of the site plan. As a result, we had to adjust the number of apartments originally proposed. Despite these challenges, our belief in the project’s potential never wavered.

Blueprint for Success: Strategic Team and Persistence

Our project’s journey was one of commitment, strategy, and persistent coordination with the City Council. The skill and diligence of our local partners dramatically contributed to the success, notably Amy Johnson, who tirelessly coordinated with City Council and public hearings. Even when faced with setbacks and delays, our team persevered to ensure we received our zoning recommendation.

Tipping the Scale in Your Favor

The investing and development journey in real estate is not devoid of risk. The key to success is a competent team and strategic planning – both of which were our core strengths in this project. Despite the challenges, we were able to create a promising development with significant value for our investors.

As Brigham City thrives with the newly announced inland port and an influx of jobs, we’re confident that our project’s value will only enhance. It’s an exciting time to be part of the real estate development community, and we’re eager to see how our project unfolds moving forward.
