Suburban housing is abundant along the ridge, featuring single-family homes, tending to be large and of modern design – typically products of the 1970s and ‘80s. Yet while maintaining a cozy, familial environment, the city hosts the corporate offices of JetBlue Airways and Overstock.com among others, bolstering the local economy. Commercial construction has been mostly relegated to the lower elevation areas north of the ridge. The Hillside Plaza Shopping Center at Fort Union Blvd. & S 2300 offers an array of commerce, and in this same proximity one can find most of Cottonwood Heights’ apartment selections. Numerous parks enhance the city, namely Mountview, Crestwood, Butler, Bywater and Mill Hollow. The Cottonwood Heights Recreation Center is often filled with local families, as it offers everything from ice skating and swimming, to skate parks and exercise classes.
