Pluralsight Unveils Draper as Location of its New Worldwide Headquarters
Pluralsight, the enterprise technology learning company, has announced the location of its new worldwide headquarters in the heart of Utah’s thriving Silicon Slopes. The 350,000-square-foot office and amenities will be located on more than 30 acres of undeveloped land at 65 Highland Drive in Draper. The company plans to break ground this summer.
“Our new worldwide headquarters will provide us with the space we need to bring our entire Utah workforce together in one collaborative environment,” Aaron Skonnard, co-founder and CEO of Pluralsight, said. “We are excited to create a campus from the ground up that Utahns are proud of and our customers and partners around the world love to visit.”
The new Draper location offers unparalleled views of Salt Lake Valley, immediate access to Interstate 15, a future TRAX stop and a campuslike setting that has the capacity to grow.
Pluralsight will lease the land from The Gardner Company/Staker Company, which owns the property and will develop Pluralsight’s new state-of-the-art campus.
This move will create approximately 2,400 jobs over the next 10 years.
Once completed in late 2019, Pluralsight will consolidate existing operations from Farmington and South Jordan to their new campus in Draper.
