Jordan Landing is a master-planned development located in the center of West Jordan, Utah, adjacent to South Valley Regional Airport. Its 500-acre (200-hectare) size, containing 1,400,000 square feet (130,000 m2) of retail space, 1,200 residential units, and 1,500,000 square feet (140,000 m2) 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.[citation needed] 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 European mining multinational Rio Tinto Group.

Sears Grand

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.[citation needed] 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, there is one hotel built — a Hampton Inn — and another hotel is scheduled for construction; it will be an AmeriTel Inn, the first one in Utah.
