(South Jordan, UT) With the retail components of Daybreak’s first Village Center, SoDa Row, nearly at build out, plans were announced today for the new North Shore Village Center to be built adjacent to Oquirrh Lake. The center will be anchored by a 17,000 sq. ft. Harmons Market and include additional shop space for future restaurants, retail, and residential units.
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. These smaller stores stock 85% of the items available in the larger locations (albeit in smaller quantities) and provide a convenient, walkable alternative to big box stores. 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. Much like SoDa Row, this will begin with Harmons as the anchor with additional commercial and residential development phases being added over time. Though detailed plans have not yet been finalized, it is anticipated that the first residential units would be built to coincide with the opening of Harmons.
Within the overall master plan, Daybreak’s village 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. As a critical consideration, village centers like SoDa Row and North Shore are placed in locations that allow them to become the true center of their respective neighborhoods as a convenient place for residents to shop, eat, and interact close to home. The North Shore site has already been playing this role for several years with the very popular food truck round up being held there every Thursday night during the warmer months. Daybreak Communities plans to continue this tradition by maintaining a food truck experience within the new village center. Plans are also in the works to create additional food truck round-up opportunities in other parts of the community. Additionally, the pier and boardwalk areas on the North Bay of the lake will remain in place and accessible to all residents becoming a permanent part of the new village center experience.
Construction on the Harmons Market is scheduled to begin in 2019 with the store opening anticipated for 2020. Additional commercial tenants will be announced at a future date. Construction of the residential units in the village center should coincide with the timing of the Harmons ground breaking and be available around the same time the store opens.
Daybreak is a fresh way of thinking about community. Made up of a wide variety of energy-efficient new homes as well as shops, restaurants, offices, schools, trails, parks and more, Daybreak brings all the elements of life within easy walking or biking distance and TRAX light rail makes Daybreak even more convenient with connectivity to downtown. The community is situated on 4,126 acres in South Jordan City, Utah and will eventually include as many as 20,000 homes and up to 14 million square feet of commercial space. The Community was envisioned nearly two decades ago to carry sustainable development out on a large scale while providing model solutions for some of the region’s most challenging growth concerns.
