Another key piece of Fairbourne Station in West Valley City — a four-story, 800-stall parking plaza — will be on the drawing board soon and could be under construction by early next year.

The West Valley City Council awarded a contract Tuesday to EDA Architects to design, engineer and oversee construction of the structure.

The parking plaza's cost will depend on the final design but is estimated to be at least $10 million. Funding is expected to come from various sources.

Next to the TRAX station at Fairbourne Station, the plaza is an urban renewal project covering 40 acres south of 3500 South between 2700 West and 3200 West. Plans for the overall development call for residential units, retail stores, offices and green space.

Already open at Fairbourne Station — designed to be West Valley City's centerpiece — are The Promenade, a linear park west of City Hall at Lehman Avenue and Market Street (3590 S. 2810 West), and an Embassy Suites hotel next to it.

In March, ground was broken between the park and hotel for an upscale 225-unit apartment building. That project is expected to be completed in fall 2014.
