Over the last 25 years, Development Associates Inc. (DAI) has been a pioneering force in the successful development of master-planned communities along the Wasatch Front. Established in 1991, DAI and its founders sought to create a place where people can live, grow, and create memories with their families. In the pursuit of that endeavor, the founders of DAI created Candlelight Homes, which has established over 8,000 acres of safe, connected, and vibrant places to live throughout the state of Utah.
DAI focuses on building good relationships with city officials, local businesses, and neighbors. By establishing parameters early on with local municipal leaders, DAI ensures that the overall master plan of a community will fit the City’s vision and goals as well as meet market needs. From meticulously strategized open space and curve-a-linear street design, to specific product diversification, the team at DAI carefully plans for the needs of the homeowner, community, and city. DAI considers the long-term success of each community, creating a plan to design and cultivate the vision so that it grows more beautiful over time.
