CLINTON — The shopping options at Clinton’s main commercial cluster around 2000 West and 1800 North are about to expand.
Centerville-based Wright Development Group is planning a 65,000-square-foot addition to the Park Plaza commercial center at the busy intersection, just west of the existing Lowe’s Home Improvement store on the east side of 2000 West.
“That’s a good-sized project,” Wright President Spencer Wright said. Contractors have already started moving dirt at the site, surrounding the existing four-unit structure housing Costa Vida, Jimmy John’s Sandwiches and two other businesses.
Construction should start in early July, Wright said Friday, and the locales housing Downeast and Deseret Book should be complete and occupied by October. The Ross and Petco storefronts should by finished by next January.
Clinton officials have already completed much of the review of Wright’s plans, though they still have to sign off on some of the construction documents.
Wright submitted a development proposal for the land last year, but they didn’t pan out as then put forward and the developer tweaked the proposal, according to Clinton Community Development Director Will Wright, who said the plans, as now envisioned, have an estimated price tag of $5 million.
Stores clustered around the four corners at the 2000 West-1800 North intersection make up the key shopping area in Clinton, and Wright Development Group has overseen much of that development. Aside from Clinton, the area lures shoppers from many cities west of I-15, including Syracuse, West Point, Roy, Sunset and West Haven, said Spencer Wright, no relation to Will Wright.
