Parley’s Partners of Salt Lake City has started construction on a $45 million mixed-use development in Murray that at build-out would feature more than 300 apartments.

The project, to be known as Birkhill on Main, will sit on 6.2 acres and eventually include a three-story office building.

Phase 1 of the project, with projected spending at $17 million, will feature 137 apartments, including 41 market-rate dwellings and 96 affordable housing units in a five-story building at 4255 S. Main St.

KTGY Group Inc. of Irvine, Calif., is the architect and designer.

Residents will be living within walking distance of a TRAX station and also will have access to I-15.

Additionally, Parley’s Partners will provide a paved trail on the north side of the project, next to Cottonwood Creek, that will connect with the Jordan River Parkway’s 40-mile network of trails.

"We are linking this community and transit together and creating a truly walkable urban lifestyle that helps people save money and our planet’s resources," KTGY principal Manny Gonzales said in a statement announcing the start of construction.

Hooper Knowlton III of Parley’s Partners said Birkhill will provide quality housing for families earning from 25 percent to 43 percent of the area’s median income. Rent, for those who qualify, will range from $335 to $811 per month, based on family size and income level.

EMG Management Group of Salt Lake City will be handing property management and leasing. Pre-leasing is expected to begin next month, with initial move-ins beginning in early February. Phase 1 is expected to be completed by the end of March.
