Located in South Jordan, Utah, a suburb of Salt Lake City, Daybreak is the largest master-planned community in the state’s history. Developed by Kennecott Land, a subsidiary of mining company Rio Tinto, the project will consist of over 13,500 residential units and 9.1 million square feet (845,418 square meters) of retail and commercial space upon completion in 2017. The developer employed a number of sustainable design features and strategies, such as preserving over one-quarter of the site as open space, retaining 100 percent of the stormwater runoff on site, and requiring that all homes be Energy StarĀ® certified.
