An emerging tech sector in Utah has striking similarities to Silicon Valley, and it could mean significant future growth. San Diego-based management firm Intersection is expanding its footprint in the Salt Lake City market as a result. Most recently, the firm is now managing the 291,000-square-foot Canopy Properties near Salt Lake City. The property is among the largest tech campuses in the market. This year, the firm plans to continue to grow its footprint in the market.

“We see a strong migration of the tech sector to the Utah County area, something we are very familiar with in our Northern California location,” Scott Kirkpatrick, senior director of real estate services for Intersection, tells GlobeSt.com. “We feel our newest asset under management is an excellent example of a property poised to house the best and brightest talent since the project was built from the ground up with data center capability.  With Provo now being touted as “Silicon Slopes” and boasting a 65% increase in the tech industry since 2010, we are just a few freeway exits away from this activity.”
