“The Salt Lake City metropolitan area was one of the few in the nation to add jobs in 2020,” said Danny Shin, IPA senior director. “Employment opportunities helped the metro’s population grow by over 37,700 people last year, which is three times the national rate.” Shin and Brock Zylstra, IPA first vice president, represented the seller, Colrich, and procured the buyer, Clear Capital. Mountain View is Clear Capital’s first acquisition in Utah. “Population growth in the prime renter cohort advanced at an even faster pace,” added Zylstra. “Low inventory and high prices in the single-family home market have also increased the metro’s need for housing.”
Mountain View is 12 miles south of Downtown Salt Lake City, near access to interstates 15, 215 and 80 and Bangerter Highway, a main thoroughfare that runs throughout the Wasatch Front. Fairbourne Station a new 8.5-acre mixed-use development with 235,000 square feet of office space, retail space, a 162-room hotel and residential living, is located three miles away.
