The Station Park Village Center in Farmington is a 900,000 SF open-air shopping center set against a breathtaking backdrop of snowcapped mountains and green fields. Located at the intersection of I-15, Highway 89 and Legacy Parkway, the center includes a six-story hotel, more than a dozen restaurants, a high-end Harmon’s grocery store, office space, and many other brand-name retail stores.
This $250 million-plus, two-phase project is located along the Wasatch Fault at the base of Farmington Canyon, where winds can reach 120 miles-per-hour. This required the contractor to help with the design of structural components to ensure greater public safety in case of a seismic event or fierce canyon storm. Phase II required more than 4,100 tons of steel for eight different buildings ranging in size from 12,000 SF to 116,000 SF. Some steel columns weigh nearly 250 pounds per foot.
Other amenities include a park with a children’s play area, an outdoor ice skating rink, a Cinemark theater, and a world-class animated show fountain.
