The Southwest corner of Salt Lake County has seen significant and rapid population growth over the past several years. With Daybreak now in it’s 10th year, there are nearly 4,000 households and over 13,000 residents in Daybreak alone, not to mention the growth that has occurred with other new home communities in the surrounding area. As the area begins to mature, we’ve now reached a tipping point where more retailers, restaurateurs, and other commercial developers are starting to take note and accelerate the announcement and completion of several new options for area residents. It might also have something to do with the fact that Money Magazine just ranked South Jordan #18 in the Best Places to Live.

Within a short drive or a leisurely bike ride you’ll have access to an exciting array of new shopping & dining options in South Jordan as well as transportation, health care and schools. Here’s a quick rundown on what’s here already, and what’s coming in the near future.
