Building to begin soon in Ogden River Project

After nearly a decade of waiting, a Bluffdale firm is poised to begin building townhomes next month as part of the Ogden River Project. The Ogden Redevelopment Agency, made up of the city council, will convey to SouthRiver LLC about 6.1 acres valued at $1.3 million. The land is east of Grant Avenue between 20th Street and Park Boulevard. The agreement calls for the construction of 69 townhomes on about 4 acres. Built on the remaining 2.1 acres will be 125 apartment units and 25,000 square feet of retail space. The entire project is slated to be completed by the end of 2014, said Brandon Cooper, a senior development coordinator for the city. Ogden Standard-Examiner
