SANDY, Utah (AP) — U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx joined Utah officials Monday as they broke ground on a public-private development featuring apartments and business space near a Sandy transit stop.
Foxx joined Gov. Gary Herbert, UTA president and CEO Michael Allegra and others for the celebration and groundbreaking.
The project, dubbed a "transit oriented development" is a partnership between the Utah Transit Authority and real estate developers.
UTA purchased the land which is being developed into a mixed-use complex called The East Village.
The $42.6 million development includes a 271 unit apartment complex.
UTA says plans are underway to add more apartments, retail space and office space in the future.
