It is hard to tell if the second and third floors are metal or stone. None the less, Ground Floor looks quite nice.

The Lobby looks like something from the 60's.

Yeah, rectangular lights... just doesn't quite do it for me. It's needs to be either square or something completely different, in my book.

The lobby is so nasty IMO

They could at least do CLASSY modern.

Might as well have big brown and orange circles on the carpet with a disco ball as a chandelier.

At least it looks better than the LDS Church Office Building's lobby!

I actually think it will look quite modern. I think I saw these same renderings magnified a while ago. It seemed to me that the materials being used were going to be quite nice, both inside and out. I'm pretty sure the outside will be stone, not metal.

Stone would be most kind to the neighbors.

Ultimately, if the right materials are used on the interior lobby of 222 it could be very attractive. Judging from what they've done so far with the exterior treatment, there's no need to think that the actual finished product is going to be 60's tacky.

Hmmm.... Now I'm curious. I guess I'll have to go check it out for myself, since your opinion regarding anything of the LDS Church would be my last choice of reference, LOL. Then again, maybe someone such as T-Mac, Ark or anyone who has a small sense of objectivity could weigh in and save me the trip.

Well unfortunately like most the rest of the building it is dated. Lots of dark wood and poor use of light. I'd say its far from the ugliest thing I've ever seen, I've seen much worse in many a tall building lobby in other cities but it isn't as inviting as it could be. A nice update would be great!

From what I remember, it had a lot of that cafeteria granite tile as well as orange... or maybe green... carpet.

I have to agree with Neuroguy on this one. I was just at the LDS Church Office Building at the end of December. It is very outdated. In fact some of the upper floors that I have been on are also pretty outdated. The foyer is very open but it does still have the wood panels. Not the worst I have seen, but definitely not that great either.

If my opinon means anything, I kinda agree with Urban boy on this one. It deffinately could use a face-lift and be more modernized - though maybe the mid-20th century look is intended to retain a more historic look. It does fit with the current building's vibe, so I would only suggest up-dating the lobby if they did a face-lift on the whole exterior of the building along with it.

I think if they got new lighting and got rid of the wood panels in exchange for something else, it would be a huge improvement.

I'm also with UrbanBoy on this one. Maybe a natual stone wainscot and lighter birch panelling with modern A.L.Wright-like lighting and terrazzo floors.

Hmmmmm... with all these agreements with UrbanBoy, I may even join the anti-skybridge crowd! <stirring the pot> Not! Long live the Goldcntry Memorial Skybridge to Tomorrow Skybridge!

Ahh... then I guess I'm just clueless.

It's a shame that it's only in a mediocre two-storey building...

It would be nice if it were taller. It was however a remodel of an existing building that I believe had office on the 2nd floor and was empty on the first. The addition of Melting Pot really helped to nearly complete Market St as a nice restaurant row. If they can manage to move the Odd Fellows building, without it falling down, and if something would be built on the W. Temple corner that would be an even nicer mid-block street.

How did you miss this:

An employee killed her brother in the kitchen at the Melting Pot in 2007.
I've not been back since.
