The project site is close to Interstate 15 between State Route56 and State Route 163. When Opus announced the project, it saidthat each of the Horizon Tech Center buildings would be designed toaccommodate one to two corporate tenants and that the trio ofstructures would also be designed to function as a campus for asingle major firm, as it will with the Tactical Systems unit ofBethesda, MD-based Lockheed.
