Downtown - The Walker Center Project / Demand for Class A office space has led to a frenzy of restorations and upgrades of Salt Lake's historic icons

Hmmmm..., Looking at this construction time-line, I would have to say they had 'fast-track' back then too!!
6 January 1912


New Walker Bank Building - 18 May 1912


29 July 1912

Workers walk through the building's lobby. Once completed, the Walker renovation will offer 110,000 square feet and 16 floors of downtown Salt Lake office space.

BNET,
The Walker Center Building's blue-and-red electric sign that indicated coming weather for generations of Salt Lake Valley residents will be reinstalled atop the 20-story building at 175 S. Main, with letters in a vertical pattern on a steel tower harking back to the 1940s
