UTAH Tesla Dealership Added to Valley Grove Business Community in Pleasant Grove, Utah


Construction activities have commenced on a new 34,000-square-foot Tesla dealership, located on a four-acre parcel within Valley Grove, a 60-acre mixed-use business community located in Pleasant Grove, Utah. The Tesla dealership is being constructed overlooking, and featuring roadside visibility from Interstate 15. The site is immediately adjacent to two flex/R&D buildings currently being developed by St. John Properties containing nearly 100,000 square feet of space. The single-story facility will feature ribbon-glass windows on the east side to deliver natural sunlight into the building’s showroom, and will be equipped with a service and maintenance area, customer lounge, design studio as well as administrative and sales offices. The surrounding surface parking lot will contain charging stations and available inventory. Located directly adjacent to both Interstate 15 and North County Boulevard, Valley Grove is configured to support more

than one million square feet of Class “A” commercial office space, as well as retail, restaurants and a full-service hotel. “Tesla is extremely selective when choos- ing new dealership sites, so we consider ourselves fortunate to be able to offer the highway visibility, quality consumer demographics and overall professional environment that is essential to the com- pany,” explained Daniel Thomas, Regional Partner, Utah. “Tesla is a distinctive brand emphasizing high performance, originality and authenticity, aspects which closely align with the St. John Properties’ mission. We believe Tesla’s presence in Valley Grove will be a natural fit and complement the existing companies and retailers.”
