UDOT Selling 18 Surplus Properties Via Online Auction

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will hold 2020’s first online auction of surplus land. Participants can bid on 18 properties from July 30 through August 6 on an online auction platform created and managed by SVN Auction Services.

One of the premier properties available is a 62-acre parcel in Saratoga Springs, near highways 145 and 68. While currently zoned for light manufacturing, the buyer/developer may apply for rezone to better realize the needs of the fast-growing community. With a starting bid at $3.8 million, the land is close to a number of major retail shops and restaurants, including a new Costco.

An adjacent 57-acre parcel is also being offered, with a starting bid at $3.5 million. Both of these parcels are ideal for mixed-use development and are situated in areas with rapid and dynamic economic growth.

Other offerings are in the cities of Bluffdale, West Valley City, Riverton, West Point, Highland, Levan, Herriman and South Ogden.
