Eagle Mountain real estate investor Tiffany Walden and other community leaders have spearheaded several new development projects in the area. As the city continues to push for self-sustainability instead of evolving into a bedroom community, national businesses feel comfortable investing in Eagle Mountain’s growth.
Community leaders like Walden continue to work toward meeting demand as the city grows rapidly. Eagle Mountain more than doubled in size from the 2010 to 2020 census (43,623). Since 2020, current projections have the city at over 50,000 residents. More people create demand for commercial development, outdoor spaces, and more to offer options to strengthen the community overall.
New food options became a particular focus for Walden. National brands now open or planning to open soon include: Chipotle, Crumbl, Taco Bell, Subway, Little Caesars, Noodles & Company, Wing Stop, and Wendy’s.
Maceys Grocery and Ace Hardware made recent commitments to Eagle Mountain as well. Adding larger stores within city limits will reduce the need for residents to make longer shopping trips to traditional shopping hubs like Provo or Salt Lake City.
The biggest new commercial development located in Eagle Mountain is at the corner of Eagle Mountain Blvd. and Pony Express Parkway. A major intersection in the heart of the city, business owners envision this as a central hub attracting more businesses over the next few years.
Commercial development is just the latest focus for Tiffany Walden and Eagle Mountain. She’s played a big role in attracting major businesses and employers to the area as well. Most notably, she helped convince Facebook to build a data center in Eagle Mountain that opened in 2021. That created temporary construction jobs for the city, as well as full-time operating employment for hundreds of locals.
News outlets like eaglemountaincity.com/news, cedarvalleysentinel.com, and ksl.com provide updates on many of the newest commercial developments in Eagle Mountain. Future developments currently in the very early stages will be announced officially through local news sources.
