Hey DCRes, I assume that's the construction site for the new 'City View' Project. Keep us updated with the latest pics. Very excited to see this one go up.

Update - January 13th, 2018 - Off-campus housing expands to offer more options to students

In downtown St. George, between Main Street and 100 West, a new hotel and apartment complex is being built to offer more housing and increase pedestrian traffic.

These new buildings will be called City View Apartments and Hotel with the main building on St. George Boulevard functioning as the hotel and the two other buildings functioning as a mix of hotel rooms and apartments for rent. The entire project from start to finish is estimated to cost about $40 million.

Matt Hansen, director of multifamily at Property Enhancement Group Development, said projected pricing for available rentals is between $900 and $1,400 per month, and the target demographic is young professionals or empty-nesters looking to downsize.


“We’re not opposed to students by any means, but we understand it may not be a good fit for everybody,” Hansen said. “Sometimes we’ll see students lease an apartment in a roommate situation and that might make it a little easier for them.”

The location of City View Apartments and hotel is placed where tenants will have more to do, and there is a charm to living downtown that living in the suburbs doesn’t have, Hansen said.

Hansen also said there is a site called 605 Place currently under construction. This will be new student housing for Dixie State University. It will have studios and four-bedroom, four-bathroom apartments with 113 units and 416 beds in all, and will include “honors housing” — apartments specifically for honor students to reside.

PEG Development is building 605 Place at Tabernacle and 600 East, behind the Taco Bell on St. George Boulevard. Pricing will depend on what floor each apartment is on and will be comparable to The Vintage apartments rental rates. Rates for Vintage at Canyonlands are available on pegdev.com.

With new apartments being built so close to DSU’s campus, students are excited about the prospects.

“Students are often attracted to the new building, so I think there is some excitement there,” said Seth Gubler, director of housing and resident life. “With enrollment increasing, they’re going to need places to live and as on-campus fills up, they’re going to want places nearby.”

The addition of 605 Place and that of City View Apartments and Hotel means students will have more opportunities to rent apartments close to campus, appealing to students weary of on-campus living and those currently living off campus.

Nicholas Klock, a junior sports management major from Las Vegas, said, “They’re going to be newer; they’re going to be better than what I’m already living in right now.”

PEG Development expects to begin leasing apartments to the public at City View as early as fall 2018 and fully completing all three buildings by Spring of 2019. The leasing office for 605 Place plans to be open as early as March 2018, which is early enough for students to apply prior to fall semester.

Large new Dixie State University health facility's building plans set


New building master plan for 15,000 students at DSU in works
http://www.dixiesunnews.com/news/art...nts-dsu-works/
Dixie Sun News - By Spencer Ricks - From 2016 archives

A master plan to increase enrollment to 15,000 students at Dixie State University will come with several large-scale construction projects in the coming years.

The master plan will show building plans for what the DSU campus should look like if 15,000 students were enrolled. Construction projects in the plan include additional housing buildings, more academic buildings, expanded intramural and recreation space, and a parking garage...



Human Performance Building
A $50 million Human Performance Building is also in the works, which will include an Olympic-size pool, three basketball gyms, an indoor soccer field, fitness center, indoor running track, locker rooms and a climbing wall. The building will also hold several classrooms and a student wellness clinic.

Artist renderings show what the $50 million Human Performance Building may look like once completed. Jonathan Gibb, director of facilities planning, said the artist rendering was “a little bit too flashy” for how it will actually turn out when plans are finalized. https://fc-dixiesunnews.storage.googleapis.com/

Large new DSU health facility's building plans set
Updated Article: The Spectrum, By Kevin Jenkins
August, 2017

http://www.thespectrum.com/story/new...set/557060001/


Dixie State University announced the contractor who will build the school’s new Human Performance Center on Thursday as the St. George institution prepares for returning students to begin the fall semester.

Layton Construction, based in Sandy with satellite operations in Arizona, Idaho, California, Florida, Tennessee and Hawaii, will break ground on the 155,000-square-foot educational and athletic facility in October, DSU spokeswoman Jyl Hall said.

“It’s going to be a really big building that will change the landscape of the campus,” Hall said...

...DSU trustees advanced an exercise science degree in March 2015 that served as the initial offering for its new Health and Human Performance department, but since then more programs have added to the university’s “Active Learning, Active Life” strategic plan to prepare students for careers in athletic and healthcare industries.

The building will also house a variety of athletic facilities including an Olympic-sized swimming pool open to the public during non-academic hours.

The point of convergence between an athletic lifestyle and a vigorous healthcare industry that helps people remain active is where cooperative programs operated by the university and Dixie Regional Medical Center have set their sights...

LEGEND SOLAR STADIUM


http://dixiestateathletics.com/sport...arStadium.aspx

Home of Dixie State University football and soccer, Legend Solar Stadium (formerly Hansen Stadium) has played site to numerous Dixie State memories since its construction in 1985. It hosted classic junior college rivalry games over the years and was the site of the Dixie Rotary Bowl until 2008. The stadium was built to a donation at the bequest from the George T. Hansen Foundation – a charitable foundation in Salt Lake City, who gives money to school related activities. The Stadium features the Hansen Grandstand on the west side that seats 6,500 fans. The newly renamed Legend Solar Stadium, home to Dixie State’s football and men’s and women’s soccer programs, has seen the completion of the first stages of a new renovation project with installation of a new football/soccer field and a new state-of-the-art track surface.

The new field is a FieldTurf Revolution product with “CoolPlay” infill which will help to reduce the temperature on the field during the hot months. This field also has a shock absorption pad under its surface, which will help protect the student-athletes from concussions. In addition, the lower grass field has been widened to accommodate a full-size football field and it will serve as a practice location for our football and soccer teams as well as increase space for intramurals and club use as well as community use. The new track is an 8-lane Beynon surface, similar to the one at the University of Oregon, which is where the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials are held on. Though we still need to build out a few of the program’s field events, the new track surface includes a high jump and pole vault area built in this first phase.

"Ridge overlooking St. George poised to become mini-mecca of tech companies"

"The mesa-top location on the west side of town is shaping up to become a mini-mecca of tech company facilities.

Wedig is locating a brand new headquarters for his company there, which is already home to a recently completed $45 million new campus for Dixie Applied Technology College. The city of St. George completed a development contract earlier this month and plans are in place to add additional commercial space, retail, restaurants and residences...."

Making St. George Utah's second high tech capital makes perfect sense. Great things happening in St. George. Potential there is phenomenal.

St. George bike share program is now up and rolling

https://www.stgeorgeutah.com/news/ar.../#.Wo2tfU2WyLM

Quote:
ST. GEORGE – A new bike share program that launched in St. George Thursday is being touted as an affordable and fun way to get around town while promoting alternative transportation and healthy physical activity.

The program, provided though the bike share company Zagster, includes 10 bike share stations and a total of 55 bikes within 3.5 miles of each other between the black hills on the east and west side of St. George, Pike said.

Bike share stations will be located near trails, Suntran bus stops, lodging/housing complexes and commercial and institutional centers.

In addition to the Dixie Center St. George, other stations include among others Dixie State University, Dixie Regional Medical Center and Thunder Junction All Abilities Park.

The program is set up through a public-private sponsorship. Intermountain Healthcare’s Dixie Regional Medical Center and SelectHealth are sponsoring five of the bike share stations with others sponsored by Dixie State University, Washington County Convention and Tourism Office, Zagster and the Brad Harr & Associates personal injury law firm.
Quote:
In relation to Dixie State and the bike share use, Pike announced that plans are in the works to build either a tunnel under or a bridge over Interstate 15 at 400 South for pedestrian- and cyclist-use only. The project is anticipated to start in the coming year and run around $2.5 million.

The project will help to establish a better east-west connection within the city for university students and others, Pike said.

Not the best photos, but I snapped these of the football stadium expansion. Previously, there were only stands on the west side, so the east side you see here is all new build. I think this will about double the capacity of the stadium.

Zion National Park ranks 3rd in U.S. for number of visitors


David DeMille, The Spectrum

https://www.thespectrum.com/story/ne...ors/380897002/

Trying to limit overcrowding
The figures come as agency officials are considering major increases in entrance fees for Zion and other busy parks. Officials at Zion have implemented a new online reservation system and are considering implementing visitation caps and other ways to prevent overcrowding.

Zion jumped from fifth place in 2016, leapfrogging California's Yosemite and Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park.

Four of Utah's five national parks set new records for attendance in 2017;

I heard that they are working on upgrading the east entrance to Zion's to help alleviate some of the congestion in Springdale. Some of the small towns on that side of the park hoping to capitalize on the tourism revenue.

It's "Zion," not "Zion's"

Probably not for long. The Utah legislature will soon be pushing to rename it the "Trump Lovers Firing Range and Masturbation Park."

ST. GEORGE — A new community development project in the southern end of St. George that is anticipated to eventually accommodate more than 30,000 residents has some asking, ‘What about the water?’

During a public meeting Thursday, the St. George City Council heard the development group behind the master plan for the 3,400-acre community explain how it will implement water conservation-minded design.

The “Desert Color” community is on the east side of Interstate 15 below Exit 2 stretching to the Arizona border. Planned features include a commercial town center surrounded by resorts, residential neighborhoods and parks.
