The Salt Lake County District Attorney will add two new offices, including one in West Jordan. The county council approved previously announced plans to begin design work for the two offices, which the D. A.’s office hopes will be ready for occupancy in 2017.
West Jordan’s project could be built on the site of the old Sugar Factory. When that building was demolished two years ago, officials cited the D.A. office’s interest in the site as a key reason for demolition. The West Jordan project would be about 35,000 square feet. Combined with a downtown project directly west of the Matheson Courthouse, the county would gain about 21 percent more space than a discarded plan to build a single, 101,000-square-foot downtown building.
Currently, the D.A.’s office rents three different sites for $1.5 million a year.
