Calthorpe's Daybreak

Daybreak is a massive development planned by Peter Calthorpe being built in Utah on land owned by a mining company. Artist Lucy Raven takes her camera for a visit to see how Daybreak is coming along given the soft housing market.

Kennecott Land, the developer, has reportedly shortened the master plan process to 20 years from 70 years, implying that perhaps the latter phases of development won't be built.

"As the profitability of industrial-scale real estate development in the West has collapsed, with no recovery in sight, the allure of regular old mining has grown. But nothing is certain, and plans for Kennecott's mining and real estate operations still change month by month. Meanwhile, inside Daybreak's thousand inhabited homes, life goes on much as it did before."
