East Gate Industrial/Business Park Development
Map & Pictures
Hill Air Force Base (HAFB) has been a crucial component of Utah’s economy for over half a century. As Utah’s largest employer, HAFB has provided jobs both on Base and through numerous contractors. Layton City is very fortunate to have a strong relationship and common borders with HAFB.
To support the Base Layton City is planning an Industrial/Business Park adjacent to the east border of HAFB. To facilitate this development, HAFB is constructing a new east gate. This new gate will allow contractors direct access to and from HAFB.
The City has recently installed infrastructure and public utilities on the East Gate site to facilitate development. The City will install more infrastructure and public utilities as needed for future developments. The East Gate site is accommodating and can house a wide variety of industries. This development is zoned to allow HAFB contractors the location and flexibility needed to maximize efficiency.
The East Gate site is located in the heart of northern Utah. The area is easily accessible as it is located near four major Interstate Highways (I-15, I-80, I-84 and Highway 89). The site has direct access to both Ogden and Salt Lake City. Interstate 80 is a major trucking route that provides straight access to Colorado, Wyoming, Nevada and Idaho. The site is also located near other transportation means, including railroad lines, and is just thirty-five minutes from the Salt Lake International Airport.
There is approximately 600 acres of developable land at the East Gate site. The natural environment of the development is picturesque with beautiful rolling hills surrounding an 18-hole golf course. The East Gate site is located at the base of the Wasatch mountains, and overlooks the Layton valley and the Great Salt Lake.
