Crews have broken ground on the first new residential building located at Fairbourne Station in West Valley City, a mixed-use redevelopment at the city’s center. Construction of the residential building is the latest milestone in the city’s revitalization project.
The 225-unit apartment building will be constructed at 2900 West Lehman Avenue between The Promenade, a six-acre park that opened August 2012, and the new Embassy Suites hotel, which opened last January. It is also steps away from an intermodal transit station that offers light rail, bus rapid transit and traditional bus service.
“New housing options are critical to rebuilding the heart of our city,” said West Valley City assistant city manager Nicole Cottle. “Fairbourne Station has become the heart of business, retail and entertainment in our city, and now we are bringing in the final pieces to enable more residents to make it their home.”
The Residences at Fairbourne Station are being developed by ICO development, an Ivory Homes Company. Construction is expected to be complete in fall of 2014, and additional residences are planned for future development.
The three-story building and its units will be Energy Star-rated. ICO Development describes the new apartment building as offering a “maintenance-free, resort-like lifestyle,” with controlled access and amenities such as a clubhouse, fitness center and sports lounge, business center, swimming pool and hot tub, social area and storage. Units include features like walk-in closets, composite wood plank floors, granite countertops, oversized windows and vaulted ceilings.
