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.

By Jasen Lee@JasenLee1
Published: November 1, 2018 6:22 pm - https://www.deseretnews.com/article/...e-gateway.html

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.

Property Reserve developer proposes 395-foot addition to Salt Lake City skyline


By Katie McKellar@KatieMcKellar1 - Deseret News - https://www.deseretnews.com/article/...y-skyline.html


Salt Lake City Planning Commission

The new office building — towering at 28 stories — would be the city's third-tallest skyscraper..."We’re pleased to be bringing another Class A office tower to downtown Salt Lake," said City Creek Reserve spokesman Dale Bills in a statement issued Monday, but he declined to comment further on the details of the project.

"We’ll have more to say in the coming weeks as we progress through the city’s approval process," he said...

Kitchen said no concerns have stuck out at him in his initial review of the proposed plans. Kitchen said he's confident any issues will be worked through, noting that it's not City Creek Reserve's "first rodeo" and they "know how to work with the city."

The skyscraper — named in planning documents as Tower 8 / 95 State — would include more than two dozen floors of office space and tower 395 feet high, according to blueprints from architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, a firm based in San Francisco.

The proposed height would require approval of a conditional permit in Salt Lake City's central business district zone, which caps height in the area at 375 feet.
The additional 20 feet is being proposed for a curved parapet at the crown of the building


Salt Lake City Planning Commission

..."The subtle curvature along the top edge of the crown, coupled with the slight bow of the major elevations, serve to capture and reflect light in a continuous and dynamic expression throughout the course of the day," architects said in planning documents.

The roofline would contain "architectural features that give it a distinctive form or skyline," architects wrote, and would be designed for purposes such as "rooftop gardens, common space for building occupants or the public, viewing platforms, shading or daylighting structures, renewable energy systems, heliports" or other uses.

The sweeping, curved and glassy design for Tower 8 appears similar to another City Creek Reserve building: 111 Main, which was designed by the same architects.
Salt Lake City Planning Commission
City Creek Reserve, a real estate arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has submitted preliminary plans to the Salt Lake City Planning Commission to build a 28-story office building on the corner of State Street and 100 South.

Also like 111 Main, Tower 8 would include an open lobby at ground level, with 27-foot-tall glass walls. The lobby would feature a "large media wall" to display Utah scenery and artwork.

To the north of Tower 8 would be a 3,460-square-foot, tree-shaded plaza with outdoor eating areas, seating and a water feature or work of public art. A "stone-clad meetinghouse" will scale down to meet the Social Hall Museum plaza, architects wrote in planning documents....

...The skyscraper's entrance would face the intersection of State Street and 100 South. Parking would be provided on two levels within the tower as well as on the sixth level of the adjacent Harmon's parking building, accessible through Social Hall Avenue.

Even with thousands of new apartments being built, rents in Salt Lake County keep climbing



By Tony Semerad, The Salt Lake Tribune - https://www.sltrib.com/news/2018/11/...thousands-new/

...After nearly 12,500 apartments were built in the past four years, there are now 6,650 units under construction in Utah’s most populous county, with more than half of those in Salt Lake City. Another 66 projects are proposed countywide that, if approved, would involve another 9,700 dwellings.
Yet the combined trends of new residents moving to Utah, continued expansion of the state’s job markets and low unemployment have led to the tightest sustained market conditions for rental apartments in Salt Lake County’s history, said Kip Paul, vice chairman of investment sales with Cushman & Wakefield in Salt Lake City. “We just keep hanging in there at virtually no vacancy and rents keep going up 4 to 6 percent a year as construction continues,” Paul said Monday. July’s apartment vacancy rate for Salt Lake County was, in fact, near its historic low at 2.7 percent, the fourth year in a row below 3 percent and a level that some experts associate with “full occupancy.” Even with record numbers of new apartments coming on line, “Salt Lake County remains in a housing shortage,” according to Cushman & Wakefield’s midyear 2018 Apartment Market Report, prepared for the firm’s would-be investment clients, developers and brokers. “Market indicators show no sign of oversupply, and new development is necessary to meet demand.” ...The report estimates that average rents have risen by about 40 percent since 2010. And they’re projected to keep going up by about 4.5 percent yearly over the next five years, analysts predict.Yet, in a separate study, Salt Lake City-based market researchers for Cushman & Wakefield found rents in Salt Lake County remain affordable relative to the size of its market and the incomes of its renters.

Reno-Tahoe pulls out of competition for Winter Olympics, leaving Salt Lake and Denver

By Lisa Riley Roche - Deseret News - https://www.deseretnews.com/article/...nd-denver.html

...“We have maintained from the start that a Reno-Tahoe bid would have to make sense economically, environmentally and socially,” Brian Krolicki, chairman of the Reno Tahoe Winter Games Coalition, said in a news release.

“Given the parameters and conditions presented, we cannot make the numbers pass muster. To continue, at this point, would be untenable and unwise,” he said. The news release called it a "necessary decision."

...The mayor said 89 percent of Utahns backed hosting another Olympics in a poll last year, unlike in Denver, where an initiative is circulating for the 2019 ballot that would give voters veto power over spending public money on a Winter Games.

"We don't have to go through that process here," Biskupski said, calling it an "interesting process" for Denver to have to embark upon, giving the timing of the USOC's decision.
