SELECTION PROCESS FOR
The Point of the Mountain State Land Authority (Land Authority) seeks outstanding development partners to participate in a career-defining project to build one of the premier development opportunities in the nation. Starting in December 2021, the Land Authority is conducting an open and transparent process to select the initial development partner(s) with demonstrated success in building sustainable large-scale communities.
On December 14, 2021, the Land Authority approved to initiate a two-stage development partner-selection process. The first stage will include a thorough evaluation of all applicants for their qualifications and relevant experience. The Point is owned by all Utahns so proposals will be objectively evaluated with an aim to promote the public interest and achieve the public’s vision for The Point. The Land Authority will identify the top-scoring applicants to proceed to the second stage.
During the second stage, final candidates will participate in a rigorous competitive process and submit their best proposals. A successful team may then be selected as the development partner(s) for the initial phase of the project. This process will ensure the Land Authority selects a well-qualified partner to achieve the state’s quality-of-life vision for The Point. It is anticipated that the development partner(s) for phase one will be selected by the summer of 2022. Implementation of phase one, comprising 78 acres near the center of the site, is anticipated to begin in 2023.
