The Larry H. Miller Company and Family Unveil Historic Development in Salt Lake City

Today, the Larry H. Miller Company and the Miller family unveiled renderings, videos and statewide support for a transformational investment and catalytic development in the west side of Salt Lake City.

The Power District, a nearly 100-acre site adjacent to the Utah State Fairpark and the Jordan River, features unprecedented transportation access ideally located between the Salt Lake City International Airport and downtown. The project will serve as an economic and cultural catalyst for the state and the westside community.

“We are passionate about this once-in-a-generation opportunity to invest in our capital city,” said Steve Starks, CEO of the LHM Company. “This project will serve as a vibrant extension of and gateway to downtown Salt Lake, complements the mission of the State Fairpark, and brings the Jordan River to life. The Power District will be a gathering place for Utah’s families to live, work, play and enjoy the best views in Major League Baseball.” 

The Power District development vision includes the Utah State Fairpark and improvements to the Jordan River. The LHM Company is working closely with the Utah State Fairpark board, Salt Lake City, the Jordan River Commission, and state leaders to incorporate various community master and land-use plans into the development framework. Larry H. Miller Real Estate, with its award-winning community design team, is collaborating with Boston-based Sasaki, an internationally recognized urban planning and community design firm to develop this best-in-class placemaking vision. The LHM Company is working with westside community leaders and will continue to engage with key stakeholders and neighbors as plans develop.

The project is a historic development opportunity to create a modern, sustainable, and vibrant space for businesses, residents, and visitors alike. It will feature views of the downtown skyline and the pristine Wasatch Mountains and is readily accessible from I-80, I-215, I-15 and TRAX. The Power District also serves as an ideal, shovel-ready site for an MLB ballpark.

“The Power District is an investment in human capital and will bring infrastructure and economic and educational development opportunities to the area,” said Steve Miller, board chair of the LHM Company. “Our family is committed to this project and is humbled by the rallying of community support around this initiative. We are invested in this area because we believe in creating enriching experiences.”

The planned, multi-function, mixed-use development will feature abundant green space and trails, a beautified Jordan River walk, innovative residential options, majestic views, a focus on local dining and retail, and a potential Major League ballpark. It will be walkable, bikeable, and transit connected.

“The partnership between the Power District and the Utah State Fairpark will create economic development and allow investment in Fairpark infrastructure,” said Larry Mullenax, executive director of the Utah State Fairpark. “This development continues the State Fairpark’s position as a self-sustaining state asset.”

Development at the Power District is scheduled to begin in late 2024 with the construction of the new headquarters for Rocky Mountain Power.
