Our Changing Skyline

Bright sunshine and happily chirping birds have probably had you spending a lot more time looking up at the sky these days. But, what if one day you looked up and the entire skyline had completely changed? That’s exactly what a new expansion project has in store for Sandy city.
A real estate development firm recently presented the City Council with a plan to turn Sandy into a destination city with a very urban feel and a walkable layout. Our very own city has the potential to be one of the most “must-see” places in Utah. It’s estimated that the proposed plan could be completed, and our entire view changed, within the next 5-10 years.
The plan consists of several high-rise buildings that would include multifamily rental units, offices, and plenty of retail space. South Towne as we know it will be forever changed, and if all goes as planned, downtown Sandy City will soon rival downtown Salt Lake City.
