This was Timberlane’s third disposition in Utah within the last four months and they continue to expand their footprint in Utah with several multifamily developments in the pipeline. “The Morton’s residents are within reach of several lifestyle hotspots, including Downtown Salt Lake City, Sugar House, and the 9th District,” added Zylstra. “There is 28.3 million square feet of upscale retail and dining options in a five-mile radius.”
