So in other words they are going to built this thing in a hole so that way it will only look like a 3-story building.


"The building could be between 144 and 165 feet, Smuin said, and there have been talks on burying the first level below ground."



Isn't that called a basement?
So really it's a 11-story building with A basement.


I never really got the "Cottonwood Heights" area. I mean having all those office buildings way out there just seems like it's way out of the way from most people. I think it would of make more sense to build housing/condo buildings and hotels there in that area since it's right by the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon.
