North Shore Village Center and Downtown Daybreak Development Updates Including: Harmons Market, Salt Lake County Library, C.W. Urban Project, Performance Venue
We’ve been busy and wanted to share a few development updates related to two areas located in the Lower Villages of Daybreak: North Shore Village Center and Downtown Daybreak.
North Shore Village Center
In late 2018, we announced plans for our next village center on the shores of Oquirrh Lake. And while it has taken a bit of time to finalize the details, we are excited to share that construction is actively underway. The center is anchored by a 17,000 sq. ft. Harmons Market and includes additional space for future restaurants, retail, and residential units. Creating vibrant village centers where people want to live and where businesses want to invest in new storefronts requires a mix of complementary uses that are co-located in an urban walkable format. Businesses benefit from a larger built-in customer base of nearby homes, and those same residents enjoy the benefit of shops and restaurants within walking distance.
The Harmons Market coming to North Shore, is a smaller scale store. It will stock approximately 85% of the items available in the larger locations (albeit in smaller quantities) and provide a convenient, walkable alternative to big box stores. Harmons has been extremely successful in other areas including Holladay and the Harvard-Yale neighborhood of Salt Lake City with their smaller, neighborhood scale market stores. The stores that are now open instantly become a place where neighbors meet and interact while enjoying one of the best markets in the country. It is anticipated that Harmons Market will open Fall 2021.
Speaking of neighbors, we are excited to announce a partnership with C.W. Urban to build apartments and townhomes near the new Harmons Market. thePEARL will have its own private amenities including a clubhouse, gym and water feature. Vertical construction is anticipated to begin soon. Leasing will likely begin towards the end of 2021.
Restaurant and retail opportunities are now leasing for North Shore Village Center. Learn more about our business opportunities and get contact information, here.
In the years to come, Downtown Daybreak will grow into a regional destination. A vibrant mix of workplaces, shops, restaurants, homes, even a central park. So, let’s give you an update on a few projects underway.
Salt Lake County Library
Get that image of a stuffy, bookish place with a crabby, shushing librarian out of your head. The new Daybreak Library, a branch of Salt Lake County Libraries coming to South Station District in Downtown Daybreak, is designed to bring people together to learn and play and just hang out. With features like the rooftop garden. The plaza. The community living room. And a space devoted entirely to bringing out the artist or maker in all of us. Oh … and you can check out a book, too.
A new county library will redefine the whole notion of a library. Construction is underway with an anticipated opening Fall 2021.
You can’t have a city without a city heartbeat. (Or in the words of Duke Ellington, it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing.) Which is why we’ve begun the design and planning work on an outdoor performance venue in the South Station District just a few steps from the light rail stop. During the workday, it will be a place to bring your lunch, sit in the grass and enjoy the sunshine. But on any given evening it will come to life with great local music. And with room for at least a couple thousand people, this place is going to swing. While final touches are being made to the design, it is anticipated that construction will begin in 2021 and be completed in time for the 2022 summer concert series sponsored by LiveDAYBREAK.
The current concert venue located at SoDa Row will close when this new venue opens.
Urban Development Strategy
The master plan for Daybreak includes three types of centers, each at a different scale, and serving a different purpose based on where it’s located and the size of the area it’s designed to serve. These centers are purposefully, and carefully planned around an anticipated intensity of uses, and intentionally placed directly adjacent to major arterial roads that allow for vehicular traffic to flow and for businesses to benefit from needed exposure to passing traffic. Adequate parking to handle the associated commercial and residential demands is also a key component in the planning process and will be addressed as the project advances.
