About Daybreak Communities

Daybreak Communities is a developer of mixed use master plans in the intermountain west. The current development team has been involved with the award-winning Daybreak Community in South Jordan, Utah since its inception and with new investment partners has since turned its sights to the acquisition and development of additional properties. Daybreak Communities is known for its ability to create great places that resonate with the public.

Daybreak Communities is dedicated to the art and science of placemaking. The core team was originally brought together to develop Daybreak in the Salt Lake Valley. The result: a national model of sustainable mixed-use development, which is well into its second decade of market-leading growth and sales. Now Daybreak Communities is expanding its reach, bringing its unique approach to the rest of Utah and the Mountain States region. Ours is a holistic viewpoint. A hypersensitivity to context. A careful consideration of every factor. Above all, we believe in the transformative power of design to create exceptional value for all stakeholders — property owners who care about their legacy, investors and development partners committed to making great places, and communities looking to grow in healthy new ways.
