Desert Colors (South Block)

The Desert Colors property is located within the St. George city limits and is generally described and bound by the Sun River development to the West; the Arizona border to the South; the Fort Pierce Industrial Park to the North; and the Desert Canyon development to the East.  The total developable acreage for the parcel is approximately 6,800 acres.  This parcel is by far the largest development parcel in Washington County; one which past and present staff  have invested significant time and effort to plan, design, and implement the vision for future development of the South Block.


The topography of Desert Colors is unique to Southern Utah and is characterized by the White Dome to the east of the property; a large overlook mesa to the Northwest of the property, and a significant drainage basin, or flatlands, to the Southwest where three washes, the Atkinville, Mokaac, and Lizard converge to run under I-15.


The 192 acres Sun River development is located Immediately west of Desert Colors . Sun River is the premier active adult retirement community in Utah and is approaching its build-out capacity.  Sun River caters to an active adult lifestyle with golf, tennis, and trails as amenities along with other related activities for primary or second-home residents to take enjoy.
