Riverton, UT (February 22, 2021) – Outside the Lines (OTL), a design-build construction company that specializes in creating one-of-a-kind water features, fountains, rockwork and themed environments, and CenterCal Properties, LLC, an industry-leading private retail development company, have announced the construction of a revolutionary new show fountain at the second phase of Mountain View Village, an 85-acre lifestyle development in Riverton, Utah.
The fountain, designed and constructed by OTL, will utilize a new approach with state-of-the-art technology to produce a spectacular choreographic water and light show, according to Chris Roy, director of creative design for OTL.
“As an amenities provider with deep expertise in customizing each project to help our clients create a unique sense of place, OTL is working with the design team at Architects Orange (AO) to deliver a water feature that is distinctly inspired by Mountain View Village’s iconic location,” says Roy. “The fountain will counterbalance architectural and natural elements, combining natural stone representing Utah’s beautiful mountains with modern geometric forms illustrating the project’s investment in the future. OTL is always working to improve on show fountain technology, and the concept we’ll be installing at Mountain View Village is special in that it multiplies the water’s choreographic effects in a completely new way. The result will definitely stand out as having a completely different look compared to existing show fountains.”
The fountain will also feature energy-efficient LED color-changing lighting and musical shows to entertain and attract visitors to the center, Roy adds.
“The food hall and dining courtyard with a circular fireplace above the fountain, combined with a large-scale LED screen and special effects of the water feature, integrate activity across the entire site,” Roy notes.
Mountain View Village Phase I features a Harmons Grocery Store and Fuel Stop and more than 35 retailers, businesses and dining options. In July 2018, OTL delivered a fountain for Phase I featuring a 13-foot bronze American eagle sculpture conceived by Fred Bruning, chairman and founder of CenterCal Properties, and nationally renowned Northern California native artist, Brian Keith. The sculpture, which pays homage to the men and women serving in Riverton’s fire department, police department, and local National Guard, serves as the centerpiece for the Phase I plaza, according to Bruning.
For Phase II, OTL was called in by Architects Orange (AO) to design and engineer the show fountain and elevate AO’s initial layout for the water feature. CenterCal Properties has tapped Okland Construction as general contractor for the development’s second phase, which will solidify Mountain View Village as the top community gathering place, commercial hub, and residential community in Riverton, according to Bruning.
“The show fountain that is under construction for Mountain View Phase II aligns well with our goals for this lifestyle development,” says Bruning. “Our expertise is in developing privately owned public spaces (POPS), and our focus is on creating amazing places that integrate into the community and generate a buzz for the tenants within. The water feature OTL is delivering will serve as a unique focal point and gathering space for the many guests who are drawn to this magnificent center.”
In addition to the new show fountain, the second phase will feature five pocket parks with distinctive amenities; a covered market hall-style pavilion with a series of eateries and indoor and outdoor seating; a 14-screen Cinemark movie theater complex; and retail, restaurant, and commercial spaces. Completion of the second phase is slated for May 2022.
Mountain View Village is located at 4500 West 13400 South in Riverton, Utah.
