News on Adobe's campus...

Plans have finally been drawn up and it will most likely break ground in mid-Feb or early March and will be 4 stories. However, it will incorporate a design that builds (and connects both pieces of property) over Cabela's Blvd.

LDS Church to turn Utah County property into old Jerusalem
January 2nd, 2011 @ 10:00pm
By Sam Penrod

GOSHEN -- The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is about to begin work on a major film project focused on the New Testament. The Church won't be filming on location in Israel, but will use a large area of property in Utah County where a set of Jerusalem is being built.

The set is not for a full-length movie about the Bible. Producers say they are creating scriptural stock footage to be used in a variety of LDS Church productions.

This summer, they plan to shoot more than 30 short stories from the New Testament in an area of Utah that they found has a similar look to the terrain of Jerusalem.

While I think most people might have skyscrapers at a little bit higher then 20-floors, this is salt lake and we don't really have that many buildings over 20 stories so I lower the bar just a bit. IMHO.

Well I guess it could go three ways using the most recent examples I could think of:

1. Go the Spring Lake, Utah route and make no decision until the county just ends up allowing it to be split up and annexed into neighboring cities (Spring Lake, Utah is currently being absorbed by Payson and Santaquin).
.

Spring Lake proper is not currently being annexed by either city. Payson and Sataquin are both interested in the undeveloped land west of Spring Lake and possibly Spring Lake proper, and Payson City actually owns the lake itself.

Payson City Council and Santaquin City Council recently sat down to begin discussions about drawing a "line in the sand" of where each city will annex. Not that this will do any good really because Santaquins previous annexation policy plan, which is filed with the county (every city has one) didn't stop them from annexing about 1400 acres beyond that plan, last year.

One major issue is that a large number of land owners south of the proposed line in the sand, have no interest in ever being in Santaquin and would rather be in Payson City. There is going to be a public meeting held on Wednesday March 30th for the property owners to express their opinions on annexation.

Very interesting. I knew there is a lot of drama with this. They should have gotten their crap together like Genola did and they wouldn't be getting carved up.

I hope most of Spring Lake does go to Payson. My however many greats grandfather founded Santaquin and then later on Spring Lake. He left Santaquin to help colonize somewhere down in Southern Utah and that endeavor failed, so he moved near his son in law in Mesa Arizona to help with the colonization process down there. Eventually he came back up to Santaquin, but found he had too many differences with the people there and so he founded Spring Lake.

So it seems right that Santaquin not absorb most of Spring lake, at least not any of the built up parts.

I used to love going to the trout farm in Spring Lake; I have so many good memories of that place and the wonderful people who owned and operated it.

Spring Lake attempted to incorporate 2 years ago, but the 6 sponsors that initiated the incorporation effort weren't exactly detailed when they collected signatures. They claim they told people they were collecting signatures for incorporation and those that signed that didn't want the incorporation claim they signed simply to see the results of a financial feasibility study. When the petition went to the county commissioners for approval, it was denied, based on the mis-leading information that the sponsors had distributed.

I remember that project well, and it's a pretty big deal. That they are moving forward agressively is a major positive sign for the Wasatch Metro. Let's bring a few of the original articles forward, until we have some new updates...


October 2006 - Daily Herald - Gateway on steroids

Janelle Leatherwood is pleased.

A Kindermusic instructor teaching out of her Hunter Chase home, she said her property has increased over $30,000 in value, since they purchased it 18 months ago and she expects it will increase even more with the planned development of The Terrace.

"I'm excited about (The Terrace)," she said. "I just wish it was here now instead of in 2008."

Dubbed "a cross between the Gateway and the Shops at the Riverwoods on massive steroids" by Steven Roll, Lehi Area Chamber of Commerce member, the four million plus square feet of retail space and 150-acre development will be located southeast of Cabela's just off of SR 92. Initial plans include business parks, recreation space, a performing and cultural arts center, restaurants and cinemas. Oh, and plenty of retail shopping for the high-end and moderate income consumer.

With statewide media broadcasting the announcement and state dignitaries and other guest officials joining in the accolades for the lates commercial feather in Lehi's cap one would suppose Lehi residents, like Leatherwood, would be excited about the project. But there is a more practical side inherent in some Lehi consumers.

"I'm more excited about Costco, because that's where I go shopping," Bebbie Bartlett said. "It does mean more revenue to Lehi, more taxes. Maybe this will get our roads built." (Costco, a consumer discount club, has just opened
across from the American Fork, "The Meadows" on State Street and is located adjacement to a new Lowe's).

"Wow, for me I'd be happy about it: I've been to the Gateway once or twice," said former Lehi resident Karli Poyfair, now of Orem. "I'm pretty much pro shopping. Not having to go to Salt Lake would be fun.


August 2007 - Daily Herald -New outlet center planned for Lehi

By GRACE LEONG

- Traverse Mountain's stalled retail project in Lehi is coming out of a two-year hiatus after it found a new partner.

Craig Realty Group, a Newport Beach, Calif.-based factory outlet operator that manages 3.5 million square feet of retail space globally, is building what will be called The Fashion Outlets at Traverse Mountain, officials said Wednesday. The 550,000 square-foot upscale factory outlet anchored by Cabela's is part of Traverse Mountain's new 3.7 million-square-foot mixed-use project in Lehi.

It will replace Terrace at Traverse Mountain, a proposed 4 million-square-foot lifestyle center that was to have been co-developed by Forest City Development.

Why switch to a factory outletfi

The Fashion Outlets is a better fit for Traverse Mountain, in light of a slew of lifestyle center developments that emerged in Utah over the past two years, said Richard Rozier, vice president of Traverse Mountain.

"Pleasant Grove announced its plans for a lifestyle center. The District at Daybreak in South Jordan will also have an outdoor lifestyle center. Fashion Place, Cottonwood and Trolley Square were expanding, and the City Creek development was announced," he said. "That meant we'd have traditional lifestyle centers replicating retail brands every 15 to 20 miles."

To differentiate the Lehi project, Traverse Mountain decided to go with a premium brand name fashion outlet center that provides everyday discount values -- a concept it hopes will appeal to budget-conscious Utahns.

No tenants have signed up yet, but Craig Realty will begin marketing the Lehi property to more than 150 factory or manufacturer outlets today.

A typical Craig Realty factory outlet offers designer fashion and sportswear brands including Aéropostale, Nautica, Banana Republic, Adidas, Brooks Brothers, Dressbarn, Guess and Eddie Bauer at discounts of between 30 percent and 50 percent off department store prices and as much as 70 percent during promotional sales.

The factory outlet may also carry brand name footwear, children's fashion, toys and accessories, home furnishings, jewelry, leather, luggage and accessories, and other specialty retail outlets.

Company executives said annual sales at the Fashion Outlets at Traverse Mountain could exceed $400 per square foot, nearly double the industry average of $270 per square foot.

Why Forest City partnership ended

Rozier said Traverse Mountain broke off its partnership with Forest City after it kept dragging its feet supposedly because of insufficient population count and household income in the area.

"They wanted to do the groundbreaking in 2010 because they felt there weren't enough residents at this point to support the mammoth project," he said.

But Rozier felt there was a deeper level of commitment from Steven Craig, founder of Craig Realty, and also former president and chief operating officer of upscale outlet center owner Chelsea Property, a unit of Simon Property Group.

"All we had with Forest City was a letter of intent or an agreement to develop something as soon as it's practical, as opposed to what we have with Steve Craig, which is an operating agreement to start leasing and construction," he said.

Forest City officials could not be reached for comment on Traverse Mountain's claims.

Designed by San Francisco-based Field Paoli Architects, construction of the Lehi factory outlet center is expected to start next year and is scheduled for completion in fall 2009.

Historically, many outlet centers haven't had a reputation for quality construction, Rozier said.

But the Lehi outlet stores will look like those at the Gateway and showcase features including glass pavilions and water fountains, he said.

Craig said the Lehi outlet center will have more of an "intimate village feel" with a mix of fast casual, casual dining and fine dining restaurants.

"Our centers are known for not having any steps in them. It'll be great for pushing strollers, and for those using wheelchairs," he said. "Our restrooms aren't separated by metal panels. They're properly-sized family restrooms with multiple toilets."

Other mixed-use developments

In addition, construction of two 125,000-square-foot office towers along State Route 92 in Lehi will start this fourth quarter, said Gary Mangum, managing director of Coldwell Banker Commercial.

The 3.7 million-square-foot Traverse Mountain retail project also consists of a high-end retail/entertainment development and a neighborhood town center with amenities including gas stations, dry cleaners, banks and grocers.

When completed, the project is expected to generate 1,000 jobs including 150 managerial positions.

How on earth would an outlet mall in Lehi justify building a parking structure? I mean, they are cool. But really?

Re: TRAX Station - UTA owns the R.O.W. of that rail line through, at least, American Fork. As ridership merits, you'll see the Draper line continue farther and farther south. I wouldn't hold my breath. Probably another 10-20 years to make it into Lehi, and a few more decades to expand beyond. Unless fuel dries up, ridership skyrockets, etc. But I wouldn't hold my breath on that, either.

I don't see the justification behind a parking garage either, but if this outlet mall is being built in the burbs, (Lehi) I'm all for the parking being structured. Even though it's simply a parking structure, it will give it a look of more density and will actually use land more efficiently, allowing for continued density down the road, rather than a sprawling surface lot taking up acres and acres of space.

Mar 22, 2011, 5:59 PM
Given the slope of the land in that area, a parking structure kind of makes sense. Otherwise the parking would likely need to be terraced, and shoppers would be climbing lots of stairs goin to or from their cars.

These people chose to live out there, and they should find their own water and own sources instead of asking Utah County to build a pipe, or more roads, or sewage out there!!!:hell:

whoa, whoa, whoa. Let's settle down, it's all Utah, and we like the Utes! Sustainability is about using all available practical resources and having everybody work together. It's not that anybody should be lazy, it just takes a little time to develop this, and involves a lot of thinking.

Many times it's not the fault of the buyers of these homes out in the exurbs. It is often times the fault of city policy regarding density and environmental policy regarding saving anything that is wet. These policies and environmental fights limit the continued growth in already developed areas, resulting in fewer homes in these areas, resulting in the existing housing stock becoming to expensive.

Sorry to bring up a SLC issue, but this is one reason I like the NW Quadrant development plan. It allows new homes in the city limits, meeting a demand for living in SLC proper and provides for more housing opportunities for a greater amount of people.

If any of you have read that book I recommended, my comments are sounding very familiar. :yes:

Eagle Mountain launches business incubator

http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/north/eagle-mountain/article_8a83c7f1-db11-52f1-8b12-329059044dd7.html

Eagle Mountain's first-of-its-kind business incubator launched with a splash on Tuesday.

The city council voted to accept four businesses for the program, which are hardly mom and pop wannabes. They include:

• SymBiotechs USA -- A prosthetic components company with a focus on helping amputees stay active in sports and other highly physical activities.

• Hiveit -- A new Internet shopping site.

• Impact Elevated -- An advertising and marketing company specializing in direct mail.

• Hoffman Consulting -- A business loan broker and consulting firm.

The Eagle Mountain business incubator program is unlike any other in the nation and does not cost the taxpayers anything, city officials said. Mayor Heather Jackson said the city is especially pleased to have already recruited a business to relocate from out of state, along with three local start-ups, noting that "the goal is to increase our tax base."...

I don't have a problem if either of these two projects happened, IF they were built around FrontRunner, or actually "Oriented" to FrontRunner. If FrontRunner were to run on the east or west side or right through the middle of the Springville project it would be perfect. Unfortunately, the FrontRunner corridor from Provo to Payson runs on the east side of I-15 from Provo to Spanish Fork Main St/US 6 area. When it return to the west side of I-15.

Lehi megaplex getting upgrade, expansion

Between now and fall, Thanksgiving Point’s movie theater will go from being the smallest to one of the largest — and most modern — of the Larry H. Miller Group’s theaters.

The Miller group is quadrupling the size of the Megaplex 8 Theatre in Lehi, adding nine screens and a food court. The expansion will put it on par with Jordan Commons theater...

Long-awaited canal covering creates a bike trail

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/705388022/Long-awaited-canal-covering-creates-a-bike-trail.html

By Sharon Haddock - Deseret News

LINDON — When the ribbon's cut and people start legitimately biking, walking and riding their horses on the trail over the Provo Reservoir/Murdock Canal, no one will have a bigger grin on his face than Utah County Commissioner Larry Ellertson.

Lindon resident, horseman and former mayor of the north Utah County town, he's waited patiently and worked tirelessly for the trail since before 1995...

...Price expects the 15-foot wide, 17-mile long asphalt trail linking Lindon and Orem through to the Thanksgiving Point/Cabela's area will be finished as early as the fall of 2012 — three years sooner than first projected.

The $17.25 million, multi-use trail will be open to bikers, walkers and equestrian riders from 800 North in Orem through Lindon, Pleasant Grove, Cedar Hills, American Fork, Highland and Lehi, with six landscaped trailheads along the way...

LEHI - A new major east-west corridor is about to open for commuters in northwest Utah County.

The first phase of the Mountain View Corridor will open on Saturday. The three-mile stretch of road is a connection between I-15 and Redwood Road at 2100 North in Lehi. This project features two new bridges, a bike path and a walking trail along the Jordan River.

"It's a great benefit to the community right here in this area, as well as the communities outside of Lehi — Eagle Mountain, Saratoga Springs, anyone who needs to access I-15 and make an east-west movement in Utah County — this facility is really going to help," said Teri Newell, project coordinator for UDOT...

The first section of the corridor has finally opened. It's just a spur of the main route, but this is still a boon for northwestern Utah County. I can't wait when both the spur and the mainline (which will run from SR-73 in Lehi to I-80 by the airport) are fully built out. Imagine having a freeway connect to I-80, SR-201, and I-15 that isn't the Belt Route. This will be an excellent alternative. I know some say that freeways beget sprawl, but in this situation I think building it before the inevitable happens is the way to go.

Next step is the first portion of the Salt Lake County route from 16000 South to 5400 South, set to open late 2012. No word when the SR-73–16000 South portion or 5400 South–I-80 link will begin construction...

Neuroguy
Sep 26, 2011, 3:11 AM
the new pioneer crossing is approximately 1-3 miles south of main street. therefore, it is south of the new road. If I had to guess, I'd say about 5 -10 miles south.

the new pioneer crossing is approximately 1-3 miles south of main street. therefore, it is south of the new road. If I had to guess, I'd say about 5 -10 miles south.

It's about 3 miles south. Point A is the intersection of the MV corridor and Redwood, and Point B is the intersection of Pioneer Crossing and Redwood.

Map (http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=UT-68+S%2F10800+W%2FRedwood+Rd&daddr=N+10800+W%2FN+Redwood+Rd&hl=en&ll=40.398464,-111.870689&spn=0.097263,0.150719&sll=40.391143,-111.873436&sspn=0.097273,0.150719&geocode=Fd6naAIdWjBU-Q%3BFegMaAIdkEpU-Q&vpsrc=6&mra=mift&mrsp=1&sz=13&t=h&z=13)

While at first this may seem like doubling up, I think in the long term the MV corridor area will be a bit faster and will connect directly with the freeway that will eventually be built there, where as the Pioneer Crossing will be more of a local access road with higher speed limit. But I could be wrong.

What opened over the weekend was Phase 1 (see below) of what will someday be a controlled-access freeway. For now, it will function like Bangerter highway with signalized intersections, and a really, really wide median to preserve space for the future freeway.

As you can see, 2100 North (the southern end of Mountain View) and Pioneer Crossing (SR-145 on the map) serve two different purposes. 2100 North will simply be the southern end of the (eventual) freeway to connect to I-15. Pioneer Crossing is, and will remain as, a surface street.

Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant chain chooses Lehi for launch

Cathy Allred | LEHI -- Buffalo Wild Wings corporate leaders have researched and decided Lehi would be a great spot to open their first family sport-themed restaurant in Utah.

Based out of Minnesota, there are 750 Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants nationwide. Director Pete Sorensen,representing the corporate office, said they have a goal of 1,000 by 2013.

"We think it will be an asset for the city," Sorensen said. "We did a lot of research. It should be fun."

The site they have chosen is 92 N. 1200 East, south of Lowe's and east of Walgreens, and across from The Meadows complex. The building planned will have a capacity of 220 to 230 people and the business will need 45 to 65 employees.

Have we talked about the new intersection going on at University Ave and I-15? the intersection itself is basically staying the same but left hand turns into UVU and onto Sandhill are vastly different. Check it out.

:previous:When I see that highway, I just look at it with a lot of disappointment and some disgust as to the backwards thinking this road came from. This will perpetuate sprawl even further to the far west and south of the metropolitatn center. This will perpetuate sprawl into Cedar Valley, Saratoga Springs, and Herriman areas. :(:koko:

Don't trash on it. Some of us live(d) on the westside before the Mountain View Corridor, and this highway is desperately needed. Bacchus Highway simply isn't safe anymore.

Don't worry about sprawl. We have a nice thick mountain range which will contain the valley. MVC will be the last freeway Salt Lake County ever builds.
