Utah City developers Make $20M Land Donation to the Huntsman Cancer Institute

The developers of the planned walkable community known as Utah City have announced a $20 million land donation to the Huntsman Cancer Institute for a planned research facility.

Along with the land, the project has also received large donations from the Huntsmans, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and others totaling $300 million. They hope the final $75 million needed will come in the form of a grant from the Utah Legislature. That would allow them to break ground by the end of the year.

The institute’s CEO, Mary Beckerle, said they’re excited to be building a new facility to better accommodate patients from across the state.

“We have done some really powerful scientific analysis here at Huntsman Cancer Institute that has revealed that individuals in the state of Utah that come from rural ZIP codes have worse cancer outcomes than patients that live in metropolitan areas,” Beckerle said.




Utah City is Vineyard, Utah’s groundbreaking downtown development - a vibrant, sustainable, and walkable mixed-use community. Spanning 700 acres along the picturesque eastern shore of Utah Lake, set to redefine the future of urban living in the western United States.
