Jordan Landing is a master-planned development located in the center of West Jordan, Utah, adjacent to Salt Lake City Municipal 2 Airport. Its 500 acre (2 km²) size, containing of retail space, 1,200 residential units, and of office space, places it as a focal point of West Jordan's booming economy.
It is one of the largest mixed-use developments in the Intermountain West. Built on a former alfalfa field and next to Bangerter Highway, with the first phase having its groundbreaking in 1999, Jordan Landing has been criticized for drawing traffic from across the Salt Lake Valley to a formerly rural area, overwhelming infrastructure, and acting as a catalyst for urban sprawl. However, many developers have cited Jordan Landing's success and positive impact on population growth, with some calling it a catalyst, in their decision to begin construction on their own nearby large mix-use developments. Among them are Utah's Boyer Company, America's largest homebuilder D. R. Horton, and rather uniquely European mining multinational Rio Tinto Group.
The shopping center has two "superstores": a Wal-Mart Supercenter and the first ever Sears Grand. The Wal-Mart Supercenter was the first such store in the Salt Lake City area and is consistenty rated among the busiest in the United States, attracting 80,000 shoppers a week. Jordan Landing also contains 12 dine-in restaurants, and 13 fast-food establishments, mostly of the national chain variety.
Jordan Landing is also the location of Utah's largest cinema by number of screens, a 24-screen Cinemark theater (the largest theater by seats is Larry H. Miller's 20 screen megaplex in the nearby "The District" in South Jordan, in which seats are more tightly packed).
Mountain America Credit Union and Cyprus Credit Union have their corporate headquarters in Jordan Landing. The community also contains many apartments, condominiums, and townhouses. Additionally, two hotels are scheduled for construction, a Hampton Inn and the first AmeriTel Inn outside of the Pacific Northwest.
