Viracon Returning to St. George

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Glass Viracon Returning to St. George

Ft. Pierce Industrial Park will have an old…new business returning to it.

Viracon, a glass fabricator, closed it’s doors in 2013, with the hopes of opening its doors again within two years.

Opening Early Next Year

Officials announced that they plan to open in early 2015, and will be providing 300 jobs to the area over the next 10 years. . This is great news especially after the news that Blue Bunny Ice Cream was going to be closing their St. George facility in the Ft. Pierce Industrial Park due to the lack of ice cream sales.

Viracon will invest over 2 million to their current facility. Because of their commitment, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) board said that they would allow nearly $1.5 million in post-performance Economic Development Increment Finance incentive.

Governor’s Office of Economic Development

There are several requirements that a company needs to meet in order to qualify for the tax credit. According to the GOED website, here are the requirements:

-Obtain commitment from local government to provide local incentives and establish an Economic Development Zone
-Enter into an incentive agreement with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development which specifies performance milestones.
-Create new high-paying jobs in the state
-At least 50 jobs in urban counties
-At least 125% of urban county average wage or 100% of rural county wage
-Generate new tax revenues.
-Significant capital investment
-Significant purchases from Utah vendors or suppliers

Viracon’s reopening will greatly improve the local economy by increasing jobs, reducing the vacancy rate amongst the industrial sector of commercial real estate in St. George, provide better wages for employees, and provide over $7million in sales tax, payroll tax, corporate taxes.

Utah Businesses Exceed Governor’s Job Challenge

Utah Creates 112,000 Jobs in 1,000 Days

awhCbhLqRceCdjcPQUnn IMG 0249 Utah Businesses Exceed Governor’s Job Challenge

In 2012 Governor Herbert challenged the private sector to create 100,000 jobs in 1,000 days (100 jobs per day). This was an impressive goal considering unemployment rates were high, and job growth in the state had been slow across the nation.

Governor Herbert recently announced the goal had not only been met, but that it had been surpassed. He said, “The only thing more rewarding than accomplishing a goal is exceeding that goal. I congratulate the private sector for creating more than 112,000 jobs in 1,000 days and businesses in Utah continue to create more every month.”

When jobs are created, there is more need for Commercial Real Estate. Vacancies in the market are filled with new companies, and you see more owner-occupied buildings built, along with investors that see an opportunity to build more as vacancies decrease, and lease rates increase.

Currently, the unemployment rate is 3.6 percent, which is roughly half of what it was in 2011. Utah continues to see job growth at approximately double that of the national rate.

As one of the largest commercial real estate brokerages in Southern Utah, my goal is to help you get into the building that is right for your business.

Tax Appeals St George Utah

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

Tax notices for St. George commercial property owners have been sent out… But did you know you can fight the appeal? I have been fighting tax appeals for clients for some time now. The county really does give it their best efforts to be fair regarding the tax values of your properties, however, there are often times where property owners will receive notice that their assessed value increases 30-40%, without any real reason for it.

In a proper appeal you need to provide evidence that the true market value of your property is less than what the county has determined. This is done through providing comps for the area, providing a value based on a true CAP rate, or a few other measures as outlined by the county.

Although it can be a little intimidating for someone who has never done it before, if your property value isn’t accurate it needs to be disputed. We can look at the property and determine whether or not there is a valid argument for a dispute. We have real reasonable rates, and if we don’t save you any money on the appeal, you won’t pay us anything.

Keep in mind that the savings we provide you won’t just last for this year, but will be realized over the next several years.

Firehouse Subs coming to St. George

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Firehouse Subs set to open soon in St. George, Utah.

The first time I had Firehouse subs was in Charlotte, NC. I had the hook and ladder sub, and forgive the pun… but I was hooked. They offer a wide variety of hot subs, and will be a great complimentary business to Yogurtland who opened up several months ago in the Dick’s Shopping center off of River Road.
