The UIPA jurisdictional area, also known as the Northwest Quadrant, covers approximately 16,000 acres in the Northwest Quadrant of Salt Lake City, as well as parts of northern West Valley City and Magna. It sits at the intersection of two interstate freeways, major national railways, and an international airport which puts the area in high demand for expanding warehouse, distribution, and manufacturing.
This is an immense area significantly larger than well-known, large US maritime ports – almost twice the size of the Port of Los Angeles and 11 times the size of the Port of Savannah – and with this comes both a responsibility and an opportunity to identify the highest and best uses in developing a next-generation, sustainable inland port.
Most of the area is privately-owned and approximately 7,000 acres are vacant and suitable for development.
