CenterCal Properties Unveils Show Fountain at Station Park
Farmington – STATION PARK open-air shopping center unveiled its exclusive, world-class fountain with choreographed lights, music, color and 30- to 60-foot high dancing waters. A fountain with similar technology is at Disney’s California Adventure.
Landscape architectural design firm LIFESCAPES INTERNATIONAL conceived the multi-million-dollar fountain for Station Park, and OUTSIDE THE LINES choreographed and constructed the presentation. The fountain features a syncopated water show created by special nozzles that move water side to side and front to back, and can twist and turn in all directions. The movement of water, light intensity and the use of a possible three-million variances of color were meticulously choreographed to the beat of classic songs.
“We’re thrilled to present this high-caliber fountain, garden and sculptures to Northern Utah,” says Jean Paul Wardy, president of CenterCal, developer of Station Park. “And, we couldn’t have done it without the hard work and cooperation of our many construction partners and the people of Farmington City.”
The $250 million-plus upscale retail, dining and entertainment center is one of the largest retail projects currently under construction in the United States. CenterCal has opened 400,000 square feet of retail space at Station Park since August 2011, and an additional 500,000 square feet in the Village Center is currently under construction. Station Park currently features a HARMONS GROCERY STORE, CINEPLEX THEATER, multiple retailers and restaurants, a park with a children’s play area, an outdoor winter skating rink and outdoor seating.
The water show will take place every hour on the hour, rotating songs from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to midnight on weekends.
“We have paid a great deal of attention to detail and spared no expense in creating the Station Park Village Center,” adds Wardy. “It is thrilling to see our plans and dreams come to fruition, as we create a gathering place for families that will serve the community for many years to come.”
