My Place begins work on second Utah hotel

Three months after My Place made its debut in Utah with the opening of My Place Hotel-West Valley City, the brand now has plans to open a second property in the state. Work will soon begin on the new four-story, 63-room hotel which is expected to open in December 2016 in West Jordan, Utah. 

My Place Hotel-West Jordan, Utah, will be located in the Jordan Landing Development at 7424 South Campus View Drive, and will be independently owned by Hotel Barons JLA. It will be the third My Place Hotel to open under principal engineer and developer Craig Larsen. Larsen, a native to Utah, also developed My Place Hotel-West Valley City, which opened in April 2016. Larsen’s first My Place Hotel in Rock Springs, Wyo., opened in March 2015.

“We’re excited to bring the second My Place franchise to Utah. West Jordan has grown dramatically in recent years and we want to take part in the advancement of the community,” Larsen said. “The Jordan Landing development is a perfect commercial development for a My Place franchise: retail, restaurants, big box stores and office space.”
