The Vision

Tech Ridge will be an economically and socially vibrant area which will combine educational facilities, technology companies, professional businesses, and recreation with living opportunities all at one location.

The City envisions the future use of this 28 acre parcel as well as the entire former St. George airport site as a mixed-use development that would accomplish the following goals:

  • Expand and promote a technology focused economy
  • Create higher paying technology jobs from major tenants
  • Facilitate world-class healthcare and research
  • Promote the City and area as an outdoor recreation destination
  • Support higher learning
  • Increase quality of life

"The city council, city manager and I are excited to see our vision for Tech Ridge take this important step forward. I am optimistic that we'll soon have options before us that will facilitate growth in technology companies and jobs right in the heart of beautiful St. George."

- Jon Pike, Mayor

Market Study

The City of St. George, Utah owns a parcel along the western boundary of Downtown St. George. The parcel was the site of the City’s former municipal airport. In 2011, the City opened a new regional airport located approximately six miles to the southeast. The former airport site, on a mesa with superb views of Downtown St. George, LDS Temple, and surrounding landscape, is now vacant and available for development.

The northern end of the Site is accessible via Tech Ridge Drive, which connects to one of the City’s busiest intersections at Bluff Street and St. George Boulevard. The City is currently planning a second access roadway to the site from the southeast, connecting to Black Ridge Drive, near the I-15 interchange.

The Site encompasses approximately 110 net developable acres. The mesa is vacant with the exception of the new 30 acre DXATC campus located towards the north end of the Site. Infrastructure has been installed on roughly 24 net acres of developable land at the northernmost portion of the Site.

The Concord Group market study accomplishes two primary objectives:

1. Determine the elements necessary to establish a thoughtful mixed-use “technology park” that incorporates a “live-work-play” environment

2. Absent the technology park, identify the highest and best alternative use of the ridgetop property
