Zoning laws have to exist. The problem is not zoning itself, but extremely inflexible, stagnant, and segregated zoning that became the norm all across America. While nobody is going to build the Burj Khalifa in a cul-de-sac in Orem, we would certainly get even more ugly and out-of-place development than we have without zoning. Lifting zoning laws wouldn't suddenly make everybody more responsible developers - it would just make the ugly development be placed into nice areas, and make everything even more spread out. We do not want to be Houston.

What needs to happen is a move more towards mixed-use and form-based zoning laws. That stigma against these zoning forms needs to change, and both of those forms give a LOT more flexibility to developers.

WOW is right!! That would be a definite nod toward Provo advancing a real downtown. I hope it happens. I really like this new update of the Freedom Blvd. offices also. Much more of a downtown feel than before. Thanks Orlando for the great posts.

This looks like it would be a new tallest for Provo. Not sure, but is this taller than the new Med Center tower? I like how it meshes the historic at street level at both University and Center. Also, the tower compliments the nearby Nu Skin addition.

Topgolf Competitor Coming to Utah’s Fastest-Growing City


Quote:
ineyard, UT, Nov. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Local Utahan announces construction plans for The Golf Club, a three-story, state-of-the-art golf entertainment venue offering golfing bays, golf instruction, chef-inspired dining and concerts and nightlife. The premium golf and entertainment venue is expected to provide more than 240 jobs to Utah County, with construction set to begin in Spring of 2019.

“Being born and raised in Utah, I’ve realized Utah County has a real shortage when it comes to sports and premium entertainment,” said founder and CEO of Dynamic Entertainment and founder of The Golf Club, David Allred. “To help bridge this gap, I’m excited to bring to life a new, cutting-edge golf venue for families and businesses in our community.”

At The Golf Club, guests will enjoy climate-controlled hitting bays, a full restaurant featuring a chef-inspired menu, a sports bar, a roof terrace, a golf academy, a pro shop, a live music venue and a flexible private event space. The venue uses superior radar-based tracking technology, and will be open year-round. The Golf Club will be open to children, families and groups. Visitors are welcome regardless of skill level or golf experience.

Vineyard, the future home of The Golf Club, has seen explosive growth, making it the fastest-growing city in Utah and the third-fastest growing city in the nation, according to Forbes. With approximately 400 new residents calling Vineyard home every month, this growth is expected to continue. As a local business focused on the Utah County community, The Golf Club is expected to become the area’s power entertainment district, already anchored by the Larry H. Miller Megaplex Theatre.

“Vineyard is excited about The Golf Club joining our growing and diverse local economy,” said Vineyard mayor Julie Fullmer. “We believe that The Golf Club will help solidify Vineyard as a quality place to live, conduct business and develop as a regional power center for entertainment and recreation.”

Construction of this innovative venue will begin in spring of 2019 through X Development Group, with a licensing partner to be released shortly. X Development group was selected considering their extensive experience along with their current development in projects surrounding this new venue.

The Golf Club will be positioned directly adjacent to the Larry H. Miller Megaplex at 600 North Mill Road, as well as the I-15 freeway, Utah Valley University’s new campus and future UTA Trax and Frontrunner stops.

As for the University Tower project, I’ll believe it when I see it. I have seen too many projects like this announced in Provo only to watch them die on the vine.

UVU pledges transparency, collaboration on housing project


...We believe that when you provide close proximity, contiguous housing with mass transit solutions, we get cars off the road,” he said. Only one of those two variables is currently in effect, but it has made an impact. “With the UVX (bus) route, we sold 675 fewer parking passes this year, even with an increase in the overall number of students,” he said. “Three or four weeks into the semester, at peak parking times, we had close to 1,000 stalls available. From our perspective, we have gotten cars off the road. We look forward to even more with the housing.

Barbara Christiansen - UVU @ https://www.heraldextra.com/news/com...f69daa8e8.html

Orem’s voters approved Proposition 5 in the November election, enabling a green light for construction of student-style housing east of Utah Valley University...

...Developers PEG and Woodbury Corp. proposed building a structure designed for students at approximately 1000 South and 400 West in Orem. It would have more than 1,600 beds in units of varying sizes. The Orem City Council approved a zone change to allow that density in this location. After its decision, however, a group called LetOremVote gathered signatures to place the issue on November’s ballot. Orem voters upheld the council’s decision by a nearly 1,800-vote margin.

“The university looks forward to working collaboratively with landowners, developers, Orem City, and neighbors to develop a much-needed student housing complex on the property that will build a positive sense of community, create efficient traffic flow, minimize potential disruptions, and serve the needs of UVU’s students,” a UVU statement said...

Pleasant Grove's first major hotel opens near Evermore

Pleasant Grove’s first major hotel quietly opened this week near Evermore Park.

The Hyatt House, an extended-stay hotel product, opened its doors to visitors Tuesday. The Hyatt House is Utah County’s only upscale, extended-stay offering, according to Erick Lorenzana, the hotel’s general manager. As an extended-stay hotel, 77 of the Hyatt House’s 125 guestrooms are apartment-style kitchen suites with a living room, bedroom and bathroom. The hotel’s kitchen suites are popular with business clients and families who need a “home base” with a bit more room, and the option to make some of their own meals. The other 48 rooms are den guestrooms that feature a couch with a sofa bed and a king-size bed or two queen-size beds...

Utah County leaders tackle impending growth with launch of Valley Visioning project

Business, education and government leaders gathered Wednesday afternoon for the first step of planning for Utah County’s future.

Utah County is expected to rival Salt Lake County in population within the next 45 years, and the combined associations of Utah Valley chambers hosted the first of a series of Valley Visioning events aimed to create a cohesive community plan for that growth.

Val Hale, executive director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, said this visioning process is vital to sustainable growth for the county. In prior decades, valley growth was accidental, he said, because the county had an abundance of land. Recently, that changed. The county only has an estimated 240,000 developable lands left, all which is quickly being gobbled up all across the county. Smart planning for the remaining land is crucial.

“Our margin of error has disappeared,” Hale said, adding that local legislators now need to set aside former ideologies and start thinking about the future of this valley.

“We need to talk about how we meet this growth head on,” he said.

Similar to Envision Utah’s visioning efforts for the Point of the Mountain, the Valley Visioning process will occur in three phases over the next 18 months. This first series consists of “listening” workshops, where Envision Utah is working with the valley chambers to survey residents and workers in the valley. Phase two of the process will be to model scenarios for valley growth, and phase three will be to develop a cohesive vision with proposed scenarios...

Steel is rising on the Hospital in Spanish Fork. Up to level three already, which is the top level, I believe.

I also heard rumors that In'n'out Burger is bidding a restaurant in Spanish Fork... anyone have any hard evidence. I heard the rumor from someone last night that claims to know someone bidding on the project. This guy doesn't seem the type to lie about this.

^^^Here's a rendering of that hospital from a few posts back.

Intermountain Healthcare breaks ground on Spanish Fork hospital

...The Intermountain Healthcare hospital, located at 765 E. Market Place Drive, will be built on 45 acres east of Interstate 15 and North of U.S. Highway 6 in a spot Paul Bliss, a cowboy poet, called in a poem, “a graveyard of unproductive land.”

The $150 million hospital will have 30 beds and focus on women’s and medical/surgical services, consistent with community hospitals. It will include five labor and delivery rooms, two caesarean section rooms, two antepartum rooms, 12 postpartum beds, 12 emergency department rooms, four operating rooms and two gastroenterology suites.

The hospital will also provide imagine services, cardiopulmonary diagnostic testing and infusion therapy. There will be an on-site medical office building and an Intermountain InstaCare.

The hospital is projected to open in the fall of 2020...

Looks like the new Utah Valley Medical Campus Tower is ready to officially have its grand opening. A couple of interesting articles in the Deseret News and Daily Herald.

Early returns on Utah County visioning project: Water, traffic, air quality concerns should guide growth


Quote:
Utah County residents say high moral fiber and safe neighborhoods are the most critical building blocks to maintain high quality of life as leaders start planning for an expected 1 million new residents in the valley in coming decades.

And, the group of about 1,500 respondents underscored traffic/congestion and poor air quality as the issues that will have the greatest negative impacts on their collective quality of life in the future.

That feedback is part of an initial data set gathered by organizers of the Valley Visioning project, an effort launched in November aiming to navigate the impacts of the coming influx of new residents and their attendant needs in housing, employment, education, recreation and transport.

Projections anticipate that a full third of the expected 3 million new residents who will call Utah home in the next 50 years will make their way to Utah County. And, Utah County could surpass Salt Lake County in total population by 2065.

Valley Visioning co-chairman and executive director of the Governor's Office of Economic Development, Val Hale, told the Deseret News on launch of the project that the scale of the expected growth requires a careful, forward-looking plan to ensure that quality-of-life issues are not undermined amid the population explosion.

"Utah County has always had a lot of land to work with and has been able to build out and grow in really unfettered ways," Hale said. "But, those days are now past. We know the population will double in the next 30 years, and if the Utah Valley is going to continue to be a great place to live we need to plan for, and prepare for, that growth.

"We need to be purposeful and smart about the way that happens."

The first set of resident feedback assembled by the project, which is being coordinated by nonprofit planning group Envision Utah, came via an online survey. Other highlights from the data include residents' preference for suburban neighborhoods, but with 40 percent hoping for something "more walkable" and ranking water management, transportation improvements and reducing air pollution as the top three priorities "when considering future growth."

Envision Utah President and Chief Operating Officer Ari Bruening said the effort is similar to another project his firm is coordinating for the Point of the Mountain Redevelopment Commission. Bruening noted data gathered for the Point of the Mountain study, which includes an area encompassing both southern Salt Lake County and northern Utah County, will be helpful but expects that the Valley Visioning work of "gathering input from broader Utah County ... will be area specific" and help hone in on the concerns of the county's residents.

While the online survey can still be found on the Valley Visioning website, a series of public workshops are being held at various Utah County locations through the third week of February. Time and place details for the meetings can be found at utahvalleyvisioning.org.

Bruening said the 18-month effort will occur in three phases that will include about six months devoted to outreach and information gathering, six months to assemble desired outcomes or scenarios, and a final six months to zero in on a consensus plan.

Provo Airport Expansion Becomes A Priority


Airport staff say expanded Provo terminal a budget priority
Genelle Pugmire Daily Herald -
https://www.heraldextra.com/news/loc...fdfa8571a.html

...Gleason said Allegiant Airlines, who is the only commercial airline flying in and out of Provo, is desirous to add new destinations, as well as multiple flights to the same destinations, but can’t do it with a 6,000 square foot terminal.

A new terminal should eventually be about 70,000 square feet and have 10 gates, thus allowing for even more airlines to use Provo as a destination, according to Gleason. This would be the 20-year plan. The design would also allow for
further expansion. “Seventy-thousand square feet is needed to accommodate what Allegiant would like to do,” Gleason said. “We are about four to five steps behind where we should be.”...
