Update, State Prison Project - Utah State Prison design revealed with explanation of new management style

“If we start with the stereotypes that prisoners are evil monsters who deserve penal hell holes, we’ll take the same failed approach, but if we design prisons that look more like colleges, then we can start seeing prisoners as people with potential," said Yvonne Jewkes, a criminologist at the University of Brighton in the U.K. and a key voice in the emerging international conversation on prison design.

That community of experts will be closely watching Utah's new prison, one of the largest and most ambitious projects to date. Utah new facility is, quite literally, the "next big thing," the boldest effort to date to combine a massive, centralized facility with the new principles of prison design.


http://fox13now.com/2017/04/14/utah-...agement-style/



SALT LAKE CITY -- The State of Utah released artist renderings of the new state prison's interior design, signaling a shift in management of cell blocks.

The layout allows some guards to monitor the blocks from behind floor-to-ceiling windows, while their partners stroll the block with a technique called direct supervision.

The State Prison Development Commission saw the new designs and got updates on construction and funding at a meeting held Friday.

State Corrections officials said direct supervision has become the standard around the country because it's proven to reduce violence and help prisoners stay on track with education, jobs, and other programs meant to prevent recidivism.

The prison will have a 4,000-bed capacity. Corrections officials told lawmakers that's bigger than most modern prisons around the world.

Construction should be complete in November of 2020, and staff will move in and prepare to welcome prisoners in the Spring of 2021.



State prison will be done by 2020; inmates there by 2021

Brady Mccombs - Associated Press - The Sacramento Bee

SALT LAKE CITY — ...The $650 million project should be done by November 2020. But it will take at least six months to move prisoners from the current facility in Draper to the new one about 25 miles north near the Salt Lake City International Airport, said John Kemp of the construction team hired by the state...

...The prison design will include several different types of housing areas to allow corrections officers to reward prisoners for making good choices as well as punish those who aren't behaving well, Miller said.

Prisoners doing well would be able to live in areas where their bathrooms aren't in their bedrooms and they have their own bed rather than a bunk bed, Miller said. Those facing punishment will be in traditional prison cells with bunk beds and bathrooms nearby.

"We are reinventing, in many ways, how corrections are delivered in the state of Utah," Miller said...



In this April 6, 2017, photo, a sign showing the future site of the Utah State Correction facility is displayed near the Salt Lake City International Airport. State officials say the new state prison is expected to be done by the end of 2020 as scheduled, but that inmates won't be moved there until the following year. Officials said Friday, April 14, 2017, during a Prison Development Commission hearing that it will take about six months to transition prisoners from the current facility in Draper to the new one about 25 miles north near the Salt Lake City International Airport.

Why Utah's new prison design is cutting edge

Eric Schulzke - Deseret News

Utah’s current prison in Draper is steel gray and massive inside. As if from a scene in a dystopian film, long rows of clamorous cell blocks recede into the distance with four vertigo-inducing levels of cells hovering overhead, all lit with harsh fluorescent lights.

The state's new prison, however, will look very different, starting with a more human scale, according to planners. Smaller units set on just two floors will all open onto a day room. Cells will be angled to capture natural light from large windows in the commons area with colored walls, while windowed doors on cells replace gray steel bars.

Scheduled to open near the Salt Lake Airport in 2020, the new 4,000-bed prison will also function very differently from the facility it replaces. And while much remains to be determined, the watchwords of “humane” and “normalizing” are guiding the way, say the architects, designers and corrections officials planning the new facility.

Update - Downtown Adj.- 9th East Lofts


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ http://www.buildingsaltlake.com/offi...dable-housing/

...The city continues to chip away at a large affordable housing deficit. Today local officials gathered to officially open the city’s newest addition in affordable housing, the 9th East Lofts at Bennion Plaza a 68-unit mixed-use building on the 400 South block of 900 East.

“This is a model for mixed-use affordable housing… and is a dent into the great need that we have for affordable housing,” said Palmer DePaulis, chair of the Housing Authority of Salt Lake City Board of Commissioners.

Like most of the affordable housing in development in the city, the project was strategically placed near transit. The 9th East Lofts are a just a few yards from the 900 East TRAX Station and are directly adjacent to the 209 bus route, a high-frequency bus route that runs every 15 minutes from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m...

Downtown Update - Morton Apartments


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ http://www.buildingsaltlake.com/seat...wn-apartments/

After years of leading best of rankings in business and technology, Salt Lake City is beginning to attract national developers looking to invest in the growing city.

“Downtown Salt Lake has emerged as one of the most attractive and affordable places to live for lifestyle-driven professionals from all over the country,” said David Enslow of Timberlane Partners.

The Seattle-based, Timberlane Partners plan to build their first new construction project in downtown Salt Lake later this spring. That project, the Morton, will be an eight-story mixed-use residential building planned for the 200 South block of 200 East...

...The Morton will replace a 0.63-acre surface parking lot just north of the Russon Brothers Mortuary. The $21.5 million, 120,000 square-foot project will consist of 137 residential units and 1,400 square feet of retail space. The project includes a two-story parking podium with ground-floor retail below six stories of residential space...

Update - Downtown Adj. - Liberty Square Townhomes


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ http://www.buildingsaltlake.com/cowb...e-development/

... The new proposal is for 48 townhomes in eight buildings and five units in the Ensign Floral Building. According to planning documents, each townhome will be three stories with a garage on the ground floor, living room and kitchen on the second floor and the bedrooms on the third floor. The homes will include balconies on both the second and third floors...

...The change from a multifamily apartment building to townhomes has allowed the developers to add more pedestrian connections on the block. Pedestrian enhancements will be made to the Green Street alley that connects Trader Joes and other 400 South retail spaces to 500 South. In addition to the Green Street improvements, Cowboy plans to add a north-to-south walkway at the west side of the development and an east-to-west walkway that will connect the northernmost townhomes to Green Street and west side walkway...

Great update Tony! This area is one of those that keeps me very excited about the direction that Salt Lake City is taking. I like the look of this brick. Also, very cool when they're able to keep those old established trees. Still would never have imagined that this formerly neglected area would turn around so quickly as is happening. With the Front Runner line, Gateway, Marmalade, Hardware Village and so many major attractive projects under construction along this sector it will soon be one of the coolest areas of the metro.

Update - Downtown Adj. - HLC approves demolition of two homes in Trolley Square project area


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ http://www.buildingsaltlake.com/hlc-...-project-area/

Developers, Trolley Square Ventures, have moved another step forward in their quest to redevelop a large swath of the 600 South block of 600 East directly south of the Trolley Square Mall.

In a nearly six-hour meeting, on Thursday the Historic Landmark Commission approved demolition requests for two of the four residential properties owned by Trolley Square owner, Khosrow Semnani. The four properties are considered contributing structures in the Central City Historic District...

...Semnani and his development team plan to add five new buildings on the 3.5-acre site. As currently proposed, the project will include three residential and two mixed-use residential buildings that would replace a large surface parking lot and four historic homes. The proposal also includes a sixth, four-story residential building for a separate parcel at the southeast corner of the intersection at 600 East and 600 South...

Update - Downtown Adj. - Central City - Developer focusing on for-sale missing middle housing


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @http://www.buildingsaltlake.com/deve...iddle-housing/

Although the Wasatch Front’s booming economy is attracting workers from across and outside the state, home builders haven’t been able to keep up with demand creating a seller’s market with more demand than there is supply.

In addition, since the Great Recession banks have been reluctant to finance condominium projects, so for developers looking to build higher density residential project are turning to multifamily rentals.

Jordan Atkin of the local development firm, TAG SLC, sees building for-sale missing middle projects as a way to meet the region’s demand for for-sale housing project while increasing density in high demand areas like Salt Lake City.

“People who want to be in the city, I don’t think they are requiring detached single family homes,” said Atkin. “We are trying to fill (the housing gap) in with some much needed for-sale product.

The missing middle refers to housing, like townhomes and duplexes, that bridges the gap between single family detached homes and mid-rise multifamily buildings...
