Newmark announces it has completed the $6.4 million sale of Tremonton Land, a 77.259-acre parcel of land located in an opportunity zone at 1000 North and I-15 in Tremonton, Utah.
Newmark Executive Managing Director Kyle Roberts represented both the seller, Jay Harwood, LLC, and the buyer, Golden Spike Business Park, LLC, an entity wholly controlled by one of Utah’s largest developers, Price Real Estate.
“The site represents the best location in Northern Utah for an industrial development serving occupiers that have a distribution thesis which also includes the Pacific Northwest and Southern Canada via the I-15/I-84 Corridor, together with the super-regional distribution attributes for which Utah has become so well known,” said Roberts. “Additionally, Boxelder County has a labor catchment area which provides one of the most abundant skilled labor bases in North America, advantaged by Utah’s existing, robust manufacturing base. The opportunity zone status has the potential to create even more value, with significant tax savings potential for any future improvements made on the site.”
The parcel measures approximately 1,321 feet by 2,636 feet and has frontage on both 1000 North, which sees 4,500 cars per day and I-15, which sees 14,000 cars per day. It is accessible from Exit 381 off I-15 and is immediately adjacent to Skyway Golf & Country Club and Intermountain Bear River Valley Hospital.
The land features Manufacturing Distribution / Business District (MD-B) zoning and will be developed as light manufacturing, industrial processing and/or warehousing. The parcel also includes 76 water shares with the Bear River Canal Company.
