I went by Point of the Mountain today and grabbed a few shots of some of buildings. There are a lot of other 5-6 story buildings but I didn't take pics of those.

Anyone know what this first building will be? Any specific company?




This is actually two buildings. WeWork and then Pattern and Rain Focus in the back.



The Oracle building is a few years old but still wanted to snag a pic.

They did look at extending 201 west around the lake point to run parallel to I-80 into Tooele Valley as another possible transportation option to get into the valley, as well as some kind of improved road From Tooele up Middle Canyon to connect to Butterfield Canyon and Herriman, but I highly doubt the second option will ever happen.

I agree that Cedar Valley and especially southern Utah valley (west of SF, Payson) is where you'll really see the most growth over the next 20-30 years.

I-15, Could you expound on your comments about Tooele Valley and water issues a little more? I'm seriously interested. I know your familiar with L.A. Much of Los Angeles as you know brings the water in from afar. Is that basically what would have to happen with a metro Tooele, and at what point of the population would it become necessary? Tooele has been growing rapidly as an alternative to Salt Lake Valley. It already has about 70,000 people and shows no sign of significant slowing.

Plans are underway to pipe water over to St. George metro from Lake Powell. It will be expensive to build the pipeline, but they have no choice if St. George is to continue to develop as it has these past few years.

I think we already pipe all available water from Central Utah into the Wasatch Front. I'm not sure where water would come from for Tooele.

That's what I was wondering? At what point will Tooele have to bring in water and from where? Would it come from out of State, say the north?

LDS Church to demolish five buildings at Provo MTC, replace with plaza garden, statuary and quiet study places

After 40 years of slump block classrooms, dank dormitory buildings and faulty heating and air conditioning systems, remnants of the 1978 Provo Missionary Training Center are coming down.

“The church is planning to demolish five buildings in the center of the Provo Missionary Training Center complex and replace them with open spaces and study areas,” said Daniel Woodruff, spokesman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. “These buildings are older and have not been in use since the new training buildings were completed in 2017.”

Woodruff said the demolition is expected to begin in the summer...

I saw this new CNBC clip on McKinsey yesterday and noticed it has at least 3 clips of Provo in it! Pretty nice clips that look like they were filmed at the Utah Valley Convention Center.

Major Piece Of FrontRunner Puzzle Coming To Fruition


Genelle Pugmire, for the Daily Herald - https://www.heraldextra.com/news/loc...982547b86.html

Vineyard receives federal grant to clear way for UTA FrontRunner location


https://archive.sltrib.com/images/20...h_052517~9.jpg

...The money for the Vineyard Rail Consolidation Project will help “relocate two miles of Union Pacific track that bisects Vineyard, thereby eliminating three public crossings, two private crossings and two inactive crossings to make room for residential and commercial growth, including an intermodal bus and rail stations,” according to the grant press release. The project will cost close to $18 million, Fullmer said. The money is coming as a combination of local, state and these federal funds...

..“It’s a very momentous thing for us, the state, other cities, the Utah Valley University (and) the people who first started the discussion,” Fullmer said. “There have been phone calls all day. I called our recent mayor to let him know it happened — we did it.”...

...“We’ve been working on this project for 12 years and we are all really excited about it,” said Jake McHargue, city manager. “This is the last piece to the puzzle and we feel excited to have this come in.”...

...“For over 13 years, those of us working on the Geneva project along with the city of Vineyard have worked tirelessly to find a way to remove the spur line from Geneva Road,” Park said. “Because of the multiple facets of the project affected by this deal, it is one of the most exciting developments that had happened to Geneva. The benefits to the project and the city will be significant.”

Val Peterson, vice president of finance and administration at Utah Valley University, said this gives the impetus the school needs to move forward with its expansion plans.

“It allows us to revitalize the Geneva site and Geneva Road from a hard industrial use and run down road to be used as a key component to the expansion and restoration of the Geneva corridor in UDOT’s plan, Orem’s Geneva renewal project and invites retail, businesses, and new possibilities and access for UVU’s master campus and sport campus,” Peterson said.

According to Peterson, “It allows for light rail to come into the multimodal hub to move students through the Vineyard and Orem campuses, and onto the BRT system.”...

BYU football to improve 2019 home-game experience with new "Cougar Canyon" and Stadium structural upgrades


By Jared Lloyd, The Daily Herald - https://www.heraldextra.com/sports/c...fb10890a4.html

...“PROVO, Utah — Beginning with the season opener on Aug. 29, BYU will introduce a new game day fan experience for home football games at LaVell Edwards Stadium called Cougar Canyon.

“Located directly west of the stadium on Canyon Road, Cougar Canyon will open three and a half hours before kickoff. Among the festivities, fans will be able to enjoy the following:

BYU inflatables
Autograph signings by BYU teams
Live bands and DJs
Large LED video board showing college football games, BYU highlights, upcoming events and more
Local food trucks
BYU merchandise and apparel for sale
Photo opportunities with former Cougar greats and major trophies, such as the 1984 National Championship Trophy, Heisman Trophy, Davey O’Brien Award, Outland Trophy, Doak Walker Award, bowl trophies, etc.
Corporate partner and football alumni gatherings
Team Cougar Walk
“The BYU football team will also participate in the new game day experience. The traditional team Cougar Walk will now route through Cougar Canyon two and a half hours before kickoff, allowing fans the opportunity to greet the players and coaches when they arrive at the stadium.

“Cougar Canyon will remain open until 30 minutes before kickoff, which will give fans enough time to enter the stadium for the game and enjoy the new improvements at LaVell Edwards Stadium this fall.

Stadium Improvements for 2019

“LaVell Edwards Stadium is nearing completion of the previously announced improvements for the 2019 season. The project adds structural sections at all four corners of the stadium that connect the existing four independent stadium stands at the mezzanine level. These improvements will allow patrons to walk between stands without having to return to ground level.

“The project also significantly increases the number of restrooms in the stadium by adding women’s, men’s and family-friendly facilities on the north and south mezzanine levels. The changes are intended to improve accessibility, safety and the overall patron experience at BYU football games and other stadium events...



A drawing shows the idea behind the new "Cougar Canyon" pre-game experience to be put on for the home games during the 2019 BYU football season.
