Pleasant Grove has a variety of new projects under construction — especially off of exit 275 on I-15 — but many of them won’t be completed in 2018.
“We have a huge boom of offices going on and a couple restaurants,” said Julie Henry, Pleasant Grove’s city planner. “Historically, Pleasant Grove hasn’t had a lot of restaurants, but we’re getting more.”
Some of those restaurants include R&R BBQ, Mo’ Bettahs and Jersey Mike’s Subs. But first the office space needs to be finished.
The Grove, a 62-acre development, has two Valley Grove office towers planned. The 192,000-square-foot first tower is already under construction with plans to start the second tower soon.
“Pleasant Grove in general is trying to attract retail and we’re getting a lot of office uses and interesting businesses coming,” Henry said.
Also along Pleasant Grove Boulevard, Evermore Gardens continues its construction without a definitive completion date. Evermore Gardens, a 15-acre immersive experience park, was approved by the Pleasant Grove City Council in October 2016. Evermore Gardens CEO and Co-founder Ken Bretschneider has described Evermore Gardens as “Gardner Village on steroids” and having the feel of a “European Hamlet.”
The experience park is joined with Bretschneider’s other project, THE VOID, a virtual reality company. Besides the hyper-reality experience that mixes reality and the digital world, THE VOID will include a world class racing go-kart track with “the Ferrari of go-karts,” food and beverages.
A Hyatt House Hotel will be completed in fall of 2018 next to Evermore Gardens.
