The development will be a main attraction itself. Anything by Frank Gehry is sure to attract anyone's eye, especially on such a busy passage like point of the mountain. It won't have any trouble trapping tourists on their way to southern Utah or even the regular commuters. I imagine the main concern in the long run will be of what to do with I-15 at point of the mountain, it will certainly have to be moved sooner or later to accommodate traffic and provide safer driving conditions. Don't forget there are also the minerals under the bit of freeway there that someone will be begging to pick up one of these days. There's also the question of the prison, which is perhaps on too valuable of land for a prison. We'll see.

Metro - Open House for new Draper LDS Temple Development - New LDS temple unlike others in the area

http://deseretnews.com/article/1,5143,705276337,00.html


PHILMS;flickr

DRAPER — The new Draper Temple of the LDS Church is unlike any other temple along the Wasatch Front.

That's because it is smaller, has its own design, features some unique artwork, lacks a patron cafeteria and has no clothing rental facilities...

I have yet to find a rendering of this project. Can't seem to find one anywhere.

Northeastern Metro - Beautiful Morgan Valley on Thanksgiving Morning

by Jotor

Morgan: Growing up without growing out



Morgan » No offense, Riverdale, but Morgan County wants to get off the road that leads to your big-box brand of suburbia.

Same for your glitz and glam, Park City. Morgan is an up-and-coming mountain hub that soon will be the fastest-growing county in Utah, but its residents don't want their kids pushed out by million-dollar mortgages.



Heber City's mix of mountain destinations, hay flats and Main Street milkshakes is more like it, according to Envision Utah planners who worked with Morgan residents to dream up their future.

"If nothing is done, we would wake up probably 30 years from now and, in a lot of areas, we'd look just like the Wasatch Front: You can't tell where one city ends and another begins..."


With developments such as The Cottonwoods, Mountain Green and other Morgan County hamlets are fueling growth that is projected to make Morgan County the fastest-growing county in the next half-century. (Chris Detrick / The Salt Lake Tribune)


As Morgan County grows, county officials hope to channel the growth into rural hamlets, rather than allow unrestricted building across the countryside. Morgan County is expected to add population at 3.8 percent a year for the next half century. (Brandon Loomis / The Salt Lake Tribune)



What's Envision Morgan?

The statewide nonprofit planning partnership Envision Utah spun off a Morgan consensus-seeking project this year, and most county residents favored concentrating growth in town centers while protecting farmlands and hillsides. Now it's up to the Morgan County Council to decide whether to turn that guidance into a new zoning ordinance and preservation tools such as allowing developers to pay farmers for development rights while clustering the resulting homes in town.

Central Metro - Major Water park could be new soccer stadium's neighbor - Council OKs giving developer $15M in tax incentives for the building of the project.

By Rosemary Winters
The Salt Lake Tribune


Sandy » Two hotels and a theme, water park will sprout next to Rio Tinto Stadium in a couple years.

On Tuesday, Sandy City Council gave its OK to plans to offer a developer up to $15 million in tax incentives for building such a project on 6.5 acres Real Salt Lake owns to the north of its stadium at 9256 S. State Street.

The developer -- whose name has not been released -- has presented Sandy with a feasibility that concluded two, 125-room hotels, a 40,000-square-foot indoor water park and 15,000 square feet of retail and restaurants could be successful on the site, a former Ardell Brown RV center.

"Could we build more hotels [in Sandy]? The answer is yes," said the city's Economic Development Director Randy Sant. He also cited hotel statistics that showed, despite the economic slowdown, occupancy rates in the southern Salt Lake Valley have dropped only 3 percent from last year to 68 percent.

Sant insisted "all of the private financing" for the roughly $75 million project would have to be in place before Sandy would "throw one dollar into the pot."

The city's Redevelopment Agency would use the existing Community Development Area around the stadium to channel new property taxes hatched by the hotel/ water park development into the project. Already, Sandy has used the CDA to bond for a $10 million property-tax incentive that went to RSL's $110 million stadium.

With the new project, the city would not bond for the total amount up front, but would instead reimburse the developer, year by year, as property taxes came in, Sant said.

The up to $15 million incentive would cover infrastructure, as much as $1.5 million of the land purchase and a parking terrace. A parking structure would help RSL meet a condition of its public funding package: an additional 1,000 parking stalls within a five-minute walk of the stadium in the next two years.

City Councilman Chris McCandless praised the project as a mechanism for bringing new jobs to Sandy.

"We have a significant downturn in the economy, and I think creating jobs in the community is of the highest importance."

Although Sant would not release the name of the developer, he did disclose that international architectural firm Rosetti, which designed the soccer stadium, has been retained for early design work. Renderings show a pedestrian plaza connecting the two hotels with the stadium.

Central Metro - Nelson Laboratories

This is a good infill for this kind of area since this building is going in between two other buildings and that this site used to be a parking lot. Also I like how it looks like this building will go right up to the side of the street and that the parking will be behind it. 3-stories might not be that big of a deal, but for that area this building will stick out. I hope what ever it is it will have a good design.

Does anyone know anything about this project? Or has anyone else from this area notice it also?

Nelson Laboratories Breaks Ground On New Building

https://www.nelsonlabs.com/docs/nli_groundbreaking.pdf


Nov. 14, 2008 - Nelson Laboratories to add 350 jobs in Utah


Nelson Laboratories will add more than 350 new full-time jobs over the next decade as it expands its operations in Taylorsville.

The company announced the expansion Thursday, after the Governor's Office of Economic Development Board awarded the company a tax credit of nearly $2 million for the project.

"Our decision to further expand our testing capabilities in Utah is based on our ability to access world-class talent, as well as the important partnerships we have developed in the state," Jeff Nelson, president and chief executive officer of Nelson Laboratories, said in a prepared statement.

The facility is expected to be completed by the end of 2009.

The company is a contract laboratory with clients in the medical- device, pharmaceutical/biopharmaceutical, dietary-supplement and tissue industries. It opened in 1985 in Research Park near the University of Utah with five employees and 40 tests and now offers more than 400 microbiological and analytical tests.

The company moved to Taylorsville in 1994, when it opened a 62,000-square-foot facility that maintains 80 labs and a 3,000- square-foot clean room. The company serves more than 4,000 clients in 56 countries from that site, which has more than 320 scientists and staff.

"The new facility, the new operations, will allow them to expand their services, provide for more labs and hopefully expand their operations here," said Jerry Oldroyd, chairman of the GOED board's incentives committee.

GOED board chairman Ragula Bhaskar described Nelson as "recession- proof" and employing many high-quality people trained with technical skills.

Perry said the board has "been trying very hard over the last little while to take care of our own and grow our own," and Nelson Laboratories "is another good example of a great Utah company growing here in Utah."

Nelson said the governor's office, the Utah Technology Council, the Biotechnology Industry Organization and the Economic Development Corp. of Utah "have prioritized the growth of our industry through the development of policy that works to ensure that Utah companies can grow in the state and that our industry is recognized as one of the leading life-sciences clusters in the nation."
