ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) — A key step in building up downtown St. George is underway.
The Spectrum reports developers gathered Wednesday with city officials to break ground on a $40 million multi-use project.
The "City View" project is planned to include a four-story Boutique hotel, two four-story apartment buildings, retail shopping, restaurants and other commercial uses.
PEG Development representative Cameron Gunter says the first phases, one of the apartment buildings and a parking structure, should be open by next fall.
About 110 apartment units would be included in the project, which should help meet a growing demand for apartments in the city.
Gunter says the apartments would be higher-end, with monthly rents likely starting at about $900 and go up to $1,600.
Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.
