6 story Grove Tower office building going in at PG/I-15 exit.
Awful waste of space (as per usual for Utah development)... but I guess what do you expect in this area. It's as if there's an unlimited amount of developable land with freeway frontage (...until there's not.)
Is it just me or could this developer have thought to himself "...hmmm, long term, If I just built more underground parking and/or a multi-level parking structure initially, I could actually build a phase two or even three once phase 1 is fully leased and really make some good money here!!" But nah, it's cheaper to do it this way outta the gates... Let's go with this. (...but at the same time, the developer is actually contributing to a much better use of space, so would it actually be better?) Thoughts? I mean, I'm halfway joking but kind of serious here. I'd love to see 192K sq ft go up in downtown provo (in a less stout and taller structure, as that much sq. footage could easily be a 10 story building with near 20K sq ft floor plats.)
But since it's not built in Provo, how would it be improved in it's current location. I just hate seeing this thing as a small island amongst a massive sea of parking...
