California developers announced plans Thursday for building an additional phase of Riverton’s Mountain View Village, the open-air shopping center along 134th South now anchored by Harmons Grocery that opened in 2018.
The expansion will include several new multi-story office buildings, retail shops and restaurants as well as five pocket parks and a 14-screen Cinemark Theaters outlet, officials with CenterCal Properties said.
Plans also call for a new plaza with a state-of-the-art show fountain and a covered pavilion housing a mix of new food vendors with indoor and outdoor seating.
The additions are set to be completed sometime in 2021. Developers also said they would plant up to 1,700 new trees and thousands of plants to give the property “a lush atmosphere.”
City officials and folks from CenterCal, who also operate Station Park in Farmington and Park City’s Canyon Corners, marked the release of new plans by placing a plaque Thursday in honor the city’s police force.
Riverton Mayor Trent Staggs added in a statement that the new phase’s architecture, landscaping and new dining, entertainment and shopping options will make it “a natural gathering place for our community.”
Chris Byers, vice president of leasing for CenterCal, called Mountain View Village “a bright spot in Utah’s economy” and said the firm intended to move forward with developing it as both a commercial hub and residential community.
Further additions to the 85-acre property at 4533 West Kestrel Range Road in Riverton will be announced “gradually,” the company said in a statement.
CenterCal Properties, formed in 2004, is the joint venture between retail developers and the California State Teachers Retirement System. It manages more than a dozen retail-centered developments across the western U.S.
