Where is the location of that pedestrian suspension bridge? I think I was up in that area taking photo shoots of the skyline below, however I never noticed that bridge.

The pedestrian suspension bridge is the major connecting path from the Student Housing area (Heritage Center) at the U of U to the TRAX station across the street and to the large pedestrian mall running down the hill to the Marriott Library.

Thanks for the info. I drove by the area near the bridge. I ususally catch these things since they stand out, however I must have been speeding that day. That what happens when I get behind the wheels of an RX8.

Looking at that map I found my same car at BOTH my drive way AND in the parking lot of my work.

I might take pictures tomorrow, but they're cladding the columns of the new business building. It's looking good!

I really wish they had chosen a different brick/stone treatment for USTAR. I think the one they selected is a little too rustic. I think the building looks a little confused.

I am digging the new business building though. Does anyone know what it's exterior treatment will be?

My camera battery is dead, but the work on the honors housing is looking great. They've already began pouring cement and you can see a concrete perimeter around parts of the building. I'm excited for this to be finished because of it's extreme proximity to the Ft. Douglas TRAX stop. I guess this could be called a TOD.

So, how is the new Natural History Museum shaping up? Is it supposed to open up this summer?

U. will bond to pay for athletic center





Quote:
The State Board of Regents signed off Friday on the University of Utah’s proposal to sell $20 million in bonds to finance the expansion of its Dee Glen Smith Athletic Center.

The U. had already won approval for the donor-funded project, but the school’s upcoming admission to the Pac 10 athletic conference created a need to expedite construction. The project is needed for sports medicine, training and dining facilities, according to the Regents’ resolution.

A donor stepped forward to cover the interest costs and officials hope more donors will be found to retire the debt. If insufficient donations surface, the bond will be covered by broadcast revenues that are expected to roll in once the Ute football teams start competing on a nationally televised stage, officials said.

Groundbreaking? They have a large portion of the foundation constructed already (I'll snap a photo sometime this week). I guess they wanted to wait until Spring.


Yes, Projects, It is being built directly south of the Fort Douglas station.


What I'm wondering is where the students living there will be expected to eat. It's an awfully long walk to the Heritage Center. Although I'm happy to walk to the TRAX station from my room occasionally, the walk from the honors housing to the other dorms is not something I'd be willing to do 2-3 times daily.

From the article-

"The design of the new structure uses Italian-influenced towers to mark communal spaces in the building. One, known as Fireplace Tower, is centrally located in a large community hub called Honors Commons. The commons will provide an indoor area, complete with a fireplace, study and dining spaces, and a convenience store. In addition to this interior common area, an exterior plaza is planned that will provide a grassy area for recreation with a barbeque and outside furnishings."

So I guess they will have both a convenience store and dining spaces somewhere in the "community". Hopefully "dining spaces" means a cafeteria, rather than bring your own food and eat it here space.

I think by "dining spaces" they mean tables and chairs. On the first level of the Heritage Center there is a convenience store where you can buy frozen food, sodas, toilet paper etc. (and sometimes burgers). There's also tables and chairs people can use. The honors housing seems like too small of a building to house a dining hall/cafeteria, but I guess it wouldn't have to be very big because there aren't many mouths to feed.

The Honors building will be apartment style housing, so just like Benchmark meal plans will be optional. So if people want a meal plan (which most wont) they will have to walk up to the HC.

They finally flattened the ground! I hope they finish this while I'm still living up here! It's been a real hassle to bike a detour for about a year now.
