My wife's sister and her husband live about 2 or 3 miles up the hill from there. I will try to stop by there next time I am in the area.

Daly Avenue is next for Talisker - Developer will unveil work force project at the southern tip of Old Town

http://www.parkrecord.com/city/ci_9394833


Empire Pass developer Talisker wants to build a work force housing project on the upper reaches of Daly Avenue, a narrow Old Town street at the mouth of Empire Canyon. People who live on Daly Avenue might be unhappy with the idea. A Planning Department official expects neighbors to say Daly Avenue is tightly packed with houses already. Jay Hamburger/Park Record

New Office buildings popping up everywhere!

Seems like everywhere we drive in the valley there is a new office building getting built or being planned.

Here are a few...

Draper
St. Mark Office building
4-stories
11800 South and State Street.




West Jordan
Office building
3-stories
Near 9000 South and on Redwood Road




Office building
3-stories
Near 6500 South and on Redwood Road




It's great seeing all these smaller new office buildings popping up, but I would like to see some more highrise office towers planned for downtown SLC other then 222 south Main.

I don't think you can "have your cake and eat it too" on this one Projects.

I think that you can "have your cake and eat it too." Companies that are seeking suburban offices are looking for just that. Those companies, generally, have no desire to be located in an urban office. Good examples are technology companies that have always preferred a campus, suburban style office. Other companies will be looking for the opposite. Banking, finance, and legal companies are often looking for urban settings.

There is a demand and will continue to be a demand for both. We certainly cannot expect that the entire Wasatch Front will be employed in SLC.

Excellent points UTPlanner! Great pics Projects as always, and thanks for bringing us up-to-date on that area. Man, the stadium is going to be BEEEEuuuutiful! Projects, did you catch Beckham on Leno? What a stud! He's such a great, humble guy.

everytime I see photos of the stadium I get angry. I wish it was really ugly and that it ends up being a complete failure for Sandy. ... Feeling a little vindictive right now.


I know I say this a lot, but just imagine. DT with the Stadium , the Frank Gehry project, the Proscenium (if the latter 2 really happen) and CCC. ... That would be an amazing urban core.

There are many Tech companies that have offices in urban cores. I don't know why you would say that technology companies have always preferred campuses. I think that is a generalization. Those companies that are environmentally aware will likely be located in urban cores. As society becomes more aware of the impacts of unsustainable infrastructure on the environment (our life-blood), the sub-urban locations will likely become undesirable. the Salt Lake Valley has more than enough suburban office parks as it is. And yes, we can expect many along the wasatch front to work in the urban core now that we are focussing more on mass transit, a cleaner, more social, and more efficient way to move people around.

Since we're on the subject of the Stadium, this is what could have been:

This is what exists currently at the Fairpark:



And here are the plans that were presented by Mayor Rocky Anderson:



Of course this included housing:



and was centered around mass transit:



This is what North Temple could have looked like:

agreed

UTPlanner I agree with you sometimes you want to live in the suburbs and not commute to the metro! more time with your family and you don't have sit in your car or bus for an hour. i do want more people who like urban living to live in slc to keep the skyscrapers coming.

Thanks for sharing those plans with us Urbanboy. I have never seem them before. That would of been cool. However clear up. I do believe that the city still has big plans for the fairpark and that area on North Temple.
In fact wasn't it viperlord who posted a story the other day that a "Film studio" could be coming to the fairpack. I bet once light rail is up and running down North temple we will be seeing all kinds of new urban/Mix-use developments going on in that area. :}

I think the TRAX line will do a lot to spur development along North Temple. The sooner the better, it's long overdue.

Just had lunch with a friend and he said that a developer is planning on building an 8, 10 and 12 story towers in south salt lake. 30th south or so. He wants to do it now, so as to get a step on Market Station. We shall see if it pans out.

Well Urbanboy be careful with your words. You have been known to generalize often on these threads. Many tech companies have offices in urban areas, but in general, not always but in general where are their core offices. Think about it Microsoft, Google, EBAY, Intel, Micron, Yahoo all have suburban campuses.

I just think that it is odd that some people think that everybody needs to think the way they do. Choice is one of the greatest benefits in life. If an individual wants to live on an acre and have a long commute I think he should have that choice. If I want to live downtown I should have that choice. I just don't understand why some people want to take other's right to choose away to ensure that the world turns out exactly the way they think it should.

UTPlanner! it's because peoples choices affect everyone. If you choose to use an unsustainable and polluting form of energy, it ends up polluting the air; We have to breath that air too! How on earth can you call yourself a planner; You need to be more idealistic! It is unethical, as a Planner, not to be so!

How can I call myself a planner? Which one of us is actually employed as a planner? Which one of us has years of experience as a planner?

There is a time to be idealistic and there is a time to be a realist. I make the right choices in my life because I think they are the right choices. I will certainly always recommend the right decisions when I am asked in my job but I will always leave the decisions up to our elected leaders (my bosses).

I won't let you get to me because you're just a kid. Your immature attitude is obvious in each of your posts. Talk to me in about 10 years. I have a feeling you won't be singing the same song.

Just remember that those in life that are seeking acceptance from the world and society should not be the ones to not accept others and their ideas.
