Squaw Creek Crossing

Challenge

The busy intersection of Highways 13 and 151 is at a key entry point to the city of Marion. The 20-acre site, a former driving range, is underutilized and contains only a few buildings left over from that enterprise. Located near the Marion Walmart, the site is zoned C3, which supports large commercial buildings.
 

Solution

Rezoning the site to PUD (planned urban development) will allow for a greater variety of tenants, including a much-needed hotel and convention center for the city. It will also allow Shive-Hattery and developer Squaw Creek Crossing LLC to partner with the City of Marion, giving businesses more opportunity come in.
 
With the developer wanting a modern, contemporary feel to the buildings, plans are to create groupings of tenants, such as putting a bank and three retail stores together. A hotel and convention center, restaurants, retail stores, office buildings, apartments, gas stations and banks are all possibilities for the site and would all fill a need in that area of the city. While chain stores are anticipated, the large development could also include some local businesses.
 

Impact

The City of Marion is excited to develop its "gateway to the community" on the eastern edge of the city. The Squaw Creek Crossing development will offer a visual impact from that direction, and as a commercial hotspot draw more people to the area.
