The Gateway is getting a $100 million makeover. Here's what's in store for the 1.4 million square foot Salt Lake City property


Gateway has positioned itself as the urban extension of “Silicon Slopes,” bringing to market very unique tech spaces, Cushing said.

SALT LAKE CITY — Downtown Salt Lake City has been undergoing a renaissance over the past few years, with the development of City Creek Center, the Eccles Theater, two new commercial office towers on Main Street and the renovation of Vivint Smart Home Arena.

The latest addition to the downtown revival effort is a one-time retail and entertainment hub situated in one of the fastest growing areas of the central business district.

"We've been working to revitalize the area ... hosted community events, brought in new tenants (and are) continuing the process with some really great things happening," said Jacklyn Briggs, marketing director for The Gateway. "We're excited to see all of the changes really actualizing."...


...Headquartered in Phoenix, Vestar owns and manages more than 50 retail shopping centers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, Texas, Utah and Washington. The company took over The Gateway in February 2016 and spent the ensuing months analyzing the market as it developed a suitable long-term growth strategy, she said. Gateway has positioned itself as the urban extension of “Silicon Slopes,” bringing to market very unique tech spaces, Cushing said.

"We realize we have a very unique opportunity here because of the growing demand in the tech sector," she said. "We can repurpose some of the large blocks of space we have that have unique architectural features that can be (adapted) for tech companies or large office users."

She said the large, open former retail spaces offer one-of-a-kind opportunities for firms in search of modern workspaces unlike any found in traditional office buildings. That advantage is something Vestar has used to attract anchor tenants like Recursion and Kiln, along with Cicero Group and Fidelity Investments, who occupy space on the north end of the property.

"The opportunity that we have and what makes this so unique is that we have all of these amenities that will cater to (and) make it very desirable to attract specifically the millennial workforce," Cushing noted. "We're bringing in the state's first food hall and have some entertainment concepts that have already opened."

KJZZ.com - By McKenzie Stauffer Tuesday, November 6th 2018

...This approval authorizes post-performance tax incentives in exchange for the development of the hotel, a press release stated.

“We are pleased to partner with the County, and DDRM, to build this convention hotel in Salt Lake City. We have found Utah, Salt Lake County, and Salt Lake City to be both business-friendly and a strong destination market; with an excellent airport, infrastructure, and leisure activities in proximity to the Salt Palace Convention Center. We hope this will be the first of many projects we undertake in this market,” Ambrish Baisiwala, CEO of Portman Holdings, said in a press release. The 680,000 square-foot building will be connected to the Salt Palace Convention Center...

...It will cost $337 million. Hotel owners DDRM have partnered with Portman Holdings, an architecture design firm, to build the hotel. “DDRM is fortunate to join with Portman to bring this hotel to Utah. Portman’s convention hotel experience, creativity and financial resources are very prominent within the industry worldwide and will help us create something that will make the entire State of Utah proud,” Stan Castleton of the DDRM Companies, said in a press release. The hotel will have 700-750 rooms and be about 325 feet tall. It will have a 62,000 square-foot meeting space, including a 25,000 square-foot Grand Ballroom and a 14,000 square-foot Junior Ballroom and an outdoor rooftop amenity space, press release stated. Portman Holdings and DDRM expect to break ground for the new hotel in Fall 2019 and plan to open it in 2022.

ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST - The 9 Best New University Buildings Around the World


Some of the world’s most famous architects—Robert A.M. Stern, David Piscuskas, Thom Mayne, among them—went back to the books to marry design and academia

Lacey Morris for Architectural Digest
Full List of 9 best and Copy @ https://www.architecturaldigest.com/...ound-the-world

Lassonde Studios, University of Utah


One of the first design elements guests of the University of Utah’s Lassonde Studios will notice is an all-copper façade. The $45 million project by Yazdani Studio of Cannon Design in association with EDA Architects opened in August 2016, and its copper exterior is made to fade and change color as it ages. Lassonde Studios is part of the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute, a division of the David Eccles School of Business, and its innovative design was made to attract the brightest young entrepreneurs to the university. The structure is built on a grid system, which will allow rooms to be easily reconfigured as demands for the space fluctuate.

Despite Overcrowding and construction Salt Lake City International Airport soars to number 2 in quality ranking.


By Lee Davidson, The Salt Lake Tribune - https://www.sltrib.com/news/politics...-overcrowding/

Salt Lake City International Airport was designed for 10 million passengers a year, but it now handles nearly 27 million. The result? Parking lots fill. Waiting areas often have more passengers than seats. It has few lounges. Concessions are crowded. But the airport still just flew to a No. 2 best overall ranking among America’s 30 busiest airports — and was just barely edged out of the top spot. And the ranking comes amid a massive ongoing $3.6 billion project to rebuild the airport. “It’s amazing,” said Bill Wyatt, airport director for the past year. “As a relative newcomer, I’m amazed at how well this place operates.”The Points Guy, a travel website, released its annual Best Airports report Thursday, and it ranked Salt Lake City as No. 2 behind only Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. The No. 3 ranking went to Portland, Ore., where Wyatt was director before taking the Salt Lake City job.The bottom rankings in the new report all went to three airports serving New York City: John F. Kennedy International at the bottom, followed by LaGuardia and Newark Liberty International. The rankings are based on such things as on-time flight statistics, amenities, how accessible it is to the city, the cost of an Uber or Lyft to get there, the number of restaurants versus the number of passengers, and more...

...Where could it do better? “Salt Lake could use a few more restaurants for the number of passengers it sees, and it has negligible lounge presence,” Kheel said. “It also needs to catch up to most other major U.S. airports in implementing environmentally friendly initiatives.”
Wyatt said the airport is already well on the way to doing all of that and more as it is building a new terminal, concourses and a parking garage to replace existing facilities — and is doing that on site without disrupting operations. The first phase of the new airport is scheduled to open in fall 2020. “It is going to be a genuine state-of-the-art facility — and will be operated by the same people who are already getting us this No. 2 award. So maybe No. 1 is on the horizon,” Wyatt said.


Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune The new Salt Lake City International Airport expansion project, Monday, Oct. 22, 2018. The first phase construction of the $3.6 billion project is due to open in 700 days.
Nearing completion is the new concourse for aircraft gates, an enclosed terminal, the steel skeleton of a new "gateway" building, a five-story parking garage and elevated roadways.
