Transforming a residential housing market from building ‘product' to place
Only a few decades ago, Salt Lake Valley was a largely single-family community. After seeing the prospect for change, Daybreak seized the opportunity to develop something new, proposing diverse housing types and a mixed-use Town Center oriented to light rail connections to the Valley. In 2005, UDA began working with the Daybreak team as an urban design consultant in developing a Pattern Book for new construction. Since then, Daybreak is recognized as one of the most desirable places to live in the Valley, and it has made an enormous impact on the local housing market. Daybreak has received national acclaim for its sustainable environmental design strategies, and is recognized as one of the best-selling communities in the county.
