Centerville City Manager Steve Thacker found the news exciting.
"MTC has been great for Centerville," Thacker said. "The building has been a beautiful structure, and the tenants have been great to work with."
"We had anticipated Dayton West exercising the option and have looked forward to the growth of this type of office business base in Centerville."
"Phase I is at 100 percent occupancy and we are looking forward to moving on to Phase II," Scott Marquardt, president of MTC and Dayton West, LLC said. "We've enjoyed being in Centerville."
Marquardt explained when MTC moved its headquarters from Ogden, Phase I was built to house the company, with extra space being leased out to other companies.
MTC contracts with government agencies like the Department of Workforce Services and other entities.
"The new building will stand three floors high as compared to the first structure, which is four floors," Marquardt said.
"Our location has been a big boost for us," he said.
With its easy freeway access and availability to Salt Lake City, Marquardt anticipates Phase II to be filled quickly like Phase I.
"MTC has worked very hard to keep a good look to the building," Thacker said. "I know they do a lot on land- scaping to help keep the outward appearance nice for residents and those shopping nearby."
"We're hoping with the good experience MTC has had combined with the Legacy Freeway coming through the west side of town that other companies and developers will see the positives of setting up in Centerville," Thacker said. "In doing so, we believe we could bring in some other businesses."
Thacker said by bringing more day-time office buildings into Centerville, the city will be able to lure more sit down restaurants and similar establishments.
"We could be on the threshold of exciting growth here in Centerville."
NAI Utah is the broker for the new building.
