That is an amazing pic Tony. The Mountains with the clouds gives a poignant display of the power of Mother Nature.

They couldn't have picked a more perfect placement for the Promontory.

No work as been done as of yet. However, the site looks like it's getting ready for a ground breaking that could take place next week. ( Monday maybe ) I'll keep you all up to date since I can see all of this just by looking out my window.





MHTN Architects

The new West Jordan Library will be the new central headquarters for the Salt Lake County library system. The library itself will be approximately 20,000 sq. ft. The administration area that includes management, customer support and information technology will be 20,000 square feet as well and will replace the current administration area in Whitmore Library which has been undersized for quite some time. In addition there will be a large 15,000 sq. ft. community room for use by library patrons and the local citizens as well.

MHTN Architects, Inc. has been selected as the design firm for the new West Jordan Library.

FLSmidth opens new technology research center in Midvale

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7...vale.html?pg=1

...FLSmidth, a global player in the minerals processing industry that is headquartered in Denmark, on Wednesday opened its new technology center in the View72 Corporate Center, at 7200 S. 1100 West, in Midvale.

The opening, attended by many of the 400 employees who will work there and several local dignitaries, contained a certain irony.
The location was once the site of a gigantic smelting and tailings area that landed on the Superfund list and needed to be cleansed before it could be considered safe. Meanwhile, FLSmidth is a leader in devising new ways to make a cleaner and more environmentally friendly activity. And the building itself features many eco-friendly characteristics and is the biggest LEED-certified office park in Utah...

Station Park by CenterCal











STATION PARK - Station Park will be the preeminent lifestyle shopping center in the Salt Lake City region. The project will consist of approximately eight hundred thousand square feet of retail, entertainment, restaurant, office and hotel space. Located at the intersection of Interstate 15, Highway 89, the new Legacy Parkway and the new Utah Transit Authority Commuter Rail, Station Park will enjoy the highest daily traffic counts to be found in the State of Utah. At this intersection Station Park will be well positioned to serve some of the strongest household demographics from Salt Lake City to the suburbs to the north.

Station Park will be home to a broad selection of apparel, home goods, entertainment and restaurant opportunities.

Report By Craig Frazer, Realtor, CRS, GRI, CLHMS
RE/MAX Metro


I attended a meeting last night at the CenterCal offices in Farmington in which members of the city council (along with the mayor) and Craig Trottier, Vice President of Development for CenterCal Properties discussed the current status of the Station Park commercial/retail development adjacent to the Farmington FrontRunner train station. In spite of the current economic conditions which have slowed the project, it is ready to move forward with two publicly confirmed tenants in the project. Most everyone has heard that Harmons will be opening a store in Farmington Station. In addition, Cinemark has confirmed their plans for a multi-screen theater complex within the project. There has been additional leasing activity but at this time no other tenants can be publicly announced.

Sufficient tenant commitments are in place, however, to allow for work on the project to continue. It is anticipated there will be additional site work done beginning in late April or early May with construction on the Harmons and Cinemark facilities moving forward in August. At this time, both Harmons and Cinemark are projecting a late spring opening (April/May) although that timetable has some flexibility to move faster if economic conditions warrant.

There was a good deal of discussion regarding the layout and design of the “town square” component of the development and current design concepts reflect a small town central park type of theme. The current make up of the project continues to consist of a mix of street level retail operations with commercial office space contained on the second floors of most buildings. The project continues to reflect a 130 room hotel component and there is serious discussion taking place of adding a complete healthclub/spa facility within the project. The intent is to have a good mix of national, regional and local retailers in this complex. Many of the retailers who have expressed interest do not currently have facilities in Davis County. For several others, this will be their first facilities in northern Utah.

The plans call for 12-18 restaurants in the project with upper end dining establishments circling the perimeter of the interior park area. It was clearly pointed out during the discussion that there are NO plans for a “food court” type of set up. The vast majority, if not all, of the dining options will provide “dine in” capabilities. The less formal dining options will most likely be located near the theater area but it is currently designed so that food services will be available throughout the project.

If the economy improves sufficiently for retailers to begin expanding and entering into lease agreements, the Station Park project could be fully operational by late 2011. However, it would not be unexpected for full build and lease out to occur by the spring of 2012.

Overall, it was a good meeting attended by approximately 15-20 residents. There is a design model of the complex available and I would encourage other Farmington residents to swing by and take a look. The CenterCal leasing office is located at 42 North 650 West in Farmington.

Nu Skin Unveils $80 Million Investment In Downtown Provo

http://provomayor.blogspot.com/2010/...nvestment.html

Provo Mayor John Curtis,

Tonight the City Council gave a green light (with a unanimous vote)
to Nu Skin's downtown addition.

A little over a year ago, Nu Skin approached the City regarding the
feasibility of the expanding the Nu Skin campus in downtown Provo.
Nu Skin will be expanding its existing Tower and then go west across
100 West where it will construct a new modern facility.

The proposed $80,000,000 expansion project will add 147,000 square feet
for a total of nearly 300,000 square feet and will house about 900
employees.

The word modern doesn't really do justice to the planned expansion.
If I could come up with a word that combined cool, fabulous and
visionary I would be better able to explain the new project. Better
yet, I'll let the pictures tell the story.

Utah faring better than other Western states in commercial real estate market

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7...te-market.html

SALT LAKE CITY — With big names like Adobe, Electronic Arts and Twitter setting up shop along the Wasatch Front, Utah has fared a bit better than many of its western neighbors in finding occupants for its available commercial real estate...

...The state has benefited from lots of high-profile publicity of late from Forbes and Newsweek, he added, depicting Utah as the place to do business. Those accolades will likely bolster the area's status and eventually translate into more companies occupying available space — meaning more jobs, too, he noted...

...With many of the newly developed properties operating at near or full capacity, even more office and commercial development could be in the pipeline soon — putting the Wasatch Front in a much better position than many other metropolitan areas to emerge from the recession.

"This is a robust, dynamic expansion that is literally setting us apart from the rest of the country," Fugal said.

I like the open plaza space, although I doubt it will get much use. I especially like that there is the potential for a future pedestrian connection to extend through the block to 400 East and that it also connects to Blair Ave.

The pedestrian connection to 400 East could really open up the block to the east, as it is redeveloped in the future.
