A pocket of Utah County is looking pretty ripped, thanks to the “six-pack” of premier office buildings known as Thanksgiving Park. The Class A office development is a monument to the frenetic pace of the “techonomic boom” in Utah’s Silicon Slopes—and we’ve had a great time assisting Thanksgiving Park achieve its vision.
Andrew Bybee, Thanksgiving Park partner and general manager, feels this area has always been a pretty sweet spot for development. “Lehi, and specifically the Thanksgiving Point area, is certainly unique,” he explained recently. “When the office [building] market was desperately trying to get out of the recession, there was more office building construction at the Thanksgiving Point interchange than all of Salt Lake County combined.”
No recession to be found here—on the contrary, it’s been an explosion of activity at Thanksgiving Park. Jacobsen crews constructed Buildings 4 and 5; Building 6 (photo above) is on track to finish ahead of schedule. Each 141,000 square-foot LEED-certified structure features multiple levels and facades, stone-like exteriors and mahogany and granite finishes. Building 6 will become the new home for MX, a banking systems developer.
“It’s been extraordinary to assist Thanksgiving Park realize its vision,” said JCC Project Executive Doug Hronek. “We know what projects like this mean to Utah County, and to our state as a whole. We’re honored to be a part of a development that impacts Utah’s economic well-being in such a positive way.”
“There has been a real spirit of unity on the Thanksgiving Park projects,” said JCC Superintendent Dave Lange. “We couldn’t ask for a better partner than Andrew; we’re all really proud of what we’ve created here. It’s been a great experience.”
