Freeport West Breaks Ground on 130-Acre Venture

Press Release

June 2, 2014

West Valley City – Freeport West has broken ground on ARA, a new 130-acre project that is expected to offer 2.3 million square feet of industrial storage, warehousing and distribution.

ARA’s initial structure, located at 6755 West and the 2100 South Frontage Road in West Valley City, is scheduled for completion winter 2015. Total square footage of the building being constructed in the initial phase is 500,000. The footprint of the entire campus property is 2.3 million square feet. Target completion for the campus is 2019, dependent on tenant occupancy and market conditions.

“With this new industrial campus enterprise, we are adding capacity for new large-scale storage, warehousing, distribution, office and showroom space within the Wasatch Front where it has been tapped out,” said Bradley J. Ross, Freeport West executive managing director.

“Today’s ground breaking is the culmination of all we had set out to do and more,” said Utah Governor Gary R. Herbert. “This latest Freeport West project is a remarkable example of what can be accomplished with business, cities, counties and the state work together.”

ARA was designed by Hilton Williams Architects.
