Comment on this story

The WinCo is part of the first phase of the planned $45 million, mixed-use development that will include retail and residential components. It is part of the initial implementation of the South Salt Lake Downtown Master Plan to develop a 235-acre area in the heart of the city.

With the development located adjacent to the Sugar House streetcar S-Line, Mayor Cherie Wood said the project is the South Salt Lake's first effort to develop a neighborhood built around transit, complete with the amenities necessary to provide a carless community for local residents and visitors.
