MILKEN INSTITUTE - BEST PERFORMING CITIES TOP 10 FOR 2017 - Salt Lake City CSA


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @
https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/sal...orming-cities/

...The Milken Institute evaluated 400 regions designating around just under 200 as large metros and the rest as small metros, between 50,000 and 250,000 people. All of Utah’s five metro areas ranked in the top 30 (top 15 percent overall) best performing cities in the large and small metro categories. The Ogden-Clearfield metro ranked 28th on the index. For small metros St. George ranked second just behind first-place Bend-Redmond, Oregon and Logan ranked 24th...

Great feather in the cap for the Wasatch Front. Thanks for reporting Isaac. I was also impressed that the Milken Institute ranked Provo MSA #1 and Salt Lake City MSA #4 for best metros for Seniors.

...More than 80 percent of Americans age 65-plus live in metropolitan areas,1 and nearly 90 percent of older adults in the U.S. want to age in their homes and communities.2 Thus, the "Best Cities for Successful Aging" index is not intended to identify the locales to which older adults should retire. Instead, the index and report are designed to highlight the nation's most livable metropolitan areas—those that enable an optimal quality of life for their aging citizens.

"Cities are on the front lines of the largest demographic shift in history," said Paul Irving, Chairman of the Center for the Future of Aging. "Lifespans are extending into eight, nine, and ten decades, and older adults increasingly are seeking lifelong engagement and purpose. They expect their cities and communities to support their changing needs."

To evaluate the metropolitan areas that foster the best overall quality of life for older adults, the Milken Institute utilized public data--83 indicators across nine categories. These categories included general livability, health care, wellness, financial security, living arrangements, employment, education, transportation and convenience, and community engagement...

Downtown Update - The Exchange


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/zon...-city-council/

A large mixed-use, affordable housing development has cleared another hurdle after the Salt Lake City Planning Commission voted on Wednesday to forward a favorable recommendation to city council for a zoning amendment needed for the project to move forward.

The project, referred to as The Exchange, is proposed for the northwest corner of the 400 South block of 300 East replacing the former Barnes Bank and Salt Lake Roasting Company buildings.

The project will consist of two mixed-use buildings. A nine-story building will occupy the northwest corner of the block at the intersection of 400 South and 300 East and a five-story building will occupy the mid-block directly east of Blair Street and 400 South...

Downtown Adj./ East Bench - University of Utah health officials celebrate new rehabilitation center

Ashley Stilson, Deseret News

https://www.deseretnews.com/article/...on-center.html

...Local dignitaries and university officials gathered Wednesday for a groundbreaking ceremony for the Craig H. Neilsen Rehabilitation Hospital, 85 N. Medical Drive.

The Craig H. Neilsen Foundation donated $47.5 million for the project, which will house 75 private patient rooms.

"We believe strongly in a fusion of health care and hospitality, and we think we’ve been able to do that," said Ray Neilsen, chairman of foundation's board of directors.

The design of the new facility places a heavy emphasis on aesthetics, Neilsen continued. The conceptual designs show windows covering much of the building, giving patients a view of the mountains and gardens...

...Using 150,000 square feet, the new center will have a mobility garage located inside the facility, along with two therapy gyms and two floors of therapy space.

The total estimated cost of the project is $423.5 million...

University of Utah Health ranked 6th among 107 academic medical systems for quality of care

by Ben Lockart
https://www.deseretnews.com/article/...y-of-care.html

SALT LAKE CITY — A recently concluded quality of care study has ranked the University of Utah Health system sixth among 107 academic medical centers nationwide.

The system was ranked for the safety, timeliness, effectiveness, efficiency and equity of its care, as well as its focus on patients, University of Utah Health spokeswoman Kathy Wilets said in a statement.

The review, named the Vizient Quality and Accountability Study and formerly called the University HealthSystem Consortium Awards, has ranked University of Utah Health in the top 10 for eight consecutive years, including No. 1 rankings last year and in 2010.

Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, which earned this year's top ranking, is the only other organization to receive a top 10 ranking for eight years in a row....




The Milken Institute Ranks the Best U.S. Universities for Technology Transfer
- New Report Cites University Research Funding, Technology Transfer as Catalysts for Economic Growth https://www.prnewswire.com/news-rele...300442457.html


University of Utah #1 out of more than 200 ranked - BYU #4

LOS ANGELES, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Milken Institute today released a new report ranking more than 200 universities across the United States for their prowess in developing basic research into new technologies, products and companies – a process known as "technology transfer."

The report "Concept to Commercialization: The Best Universities for Technology Transfer" also carries with it a clear policy recommendation: American research universities are among the nation's most powerful engines for domestic economic growth, and funding to sustain their research brings strong returns in the form of new industries, businesses and jobs.

"American economic vitality is fueled by invention," said Ross DeVol, chief research officer for the Milken Institute, who also authored the original 2006 study on the topic. "As a society, we understand our universities as the training ground for the next generation of leaders and doers, but we often overlook the benefits these institutions impart simply by bringing new ideas to life. Our study shows the impact of university research both locally and nationally is profound, and needs our support."

The report found that university research funding supports the creation of both middle- and high-skill industry jobs through innovation, commercialization and technology transfer, with varied and significant multiplier effects. As such, it makes four key policy recommendations:[/B]

Maintain basic scientific research funding. Basic research provides long-term economic benefits by allowing universities to take on research that has a low probability of quick commercial success, but potential to deliver a high reward and to create whole new industries.
•Incentivize technology transfer through a new federal commercialization fund. The federal government should increase research funding under a special commercialization pool. Universities demonstrating greater commercialization success in the market should receive higher funding in this program.
•Increase technology transfer capacity through federal matching grants. The federal government should commence a matching grant program with states to fund an increase in staff and resources in technology transfer offices (TTOs). Higher rates of academic entrepreneurship are essential to reviving declining start-up rates and productivity across the economy.
•Increase technology transfer efficiency by adopting best practices. At the state level, policies should be implemented that incentivize the adoption of best practices in commercialization at public universities, including TTOs. Efficiency gaps between universities outside of the top 25 in our Technology Transfer and Commercialization Index should be narrowed


The top 25 institutions by ranking.


...DeVol, along with Milken Institute co-authors Joe Lee and Minoli Ratnatunga, ranked each university based on four standard indicators of technology transfer success: patents issued, licenses issued, licensing income, and start-ups formed, relying on data collected by the Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM) via the AUTM's Annual Licensing Activity Survey...

Downtown - Developer proposes housing in downtown’s hotel corridor


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/dev...otel-corridor/

The developers of Providence Place and 600 Lofts want to add another work-force housing development to their downtown portfolio. Developers, Wasatch Residential Group, plan to build the Garden Lofts, a 272 residential unit development on the 100 West block of 600 South...

...The Lofts would replace the two-story Royal Garden Inn on a 3.18-acre parcel. The building will consist of five wood-framed floors that will be wrapped around a five-story mid-block parking structure. The residential building will have three u-shaped wings at the north, south and east ends of the parking structure. A strip of housing will separate the parking structure from public view at the structure’s west side. A private road will connect the parking structure to 600 South.

All of the 272 units will be reserved for residents earning at or below 60 percent AMI. The units will be a mix of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments. The bulk of the units will be one and two bedroom apartments. Rents will range between $725 for studio units to $1,065 for the three-bedroom units...

Downtown Adj. / South - 2100 Apartments


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ - https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/dev...-box-corridor/

As development picks up in Salt Lake City, developers are beginning to consider building in nontraditional areas, especially along the industrial/big box dominated 300 West corridor. The ample surface parking and empty lots are attracting development like the 251-unit Enclave Apartments that sit directly south of a Lowe’s Home Improvement Store on the 1400 South block and the proposed 121-unit Paxton Apartments that will replace a vacant lot directly south of a Target store on Paxton Avenue.

Now another developer is ready to add to the neighborhood. Developers MSC Associates want to build the @2100 Apartments, a proposed five-story residential building, on the 2000 south block of 300 West. The 81-unit building would replace a vacant lot directly east of The Warehouse- Salt Lake City, a big-box, furniture and mattress store. The project would also abut a large surface parking lot used by Sam’s Club to the north...

Downtown Adj. / East - Historic Trolley Square Update - HLC approves relocation of two historic Central City homes


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/hlc...al-city-homes/

Two out of three ain’t bad. That refrain was repeated several times during Thursday’s Historic Landmark Commission meeting as commission members unanimously approved the relocation of two contributing historic homes at 658 E. 600 South and 665 E. Ely Place in the Central City Historic District.

Trolley Square mall owner, Khosrow Semnani and his development team, Trolley Square Ventures plan to build a mixed-used development on the 3.5-acre site directly south of the mall. While most of the site is vacant land, there are four homes in the proposed project area, three of which are considered contributing structures to the historic district.

Trolley Square owner/developer hopes to mimic the design of earlier area structures surrounding Trolley Sq.

Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @
https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/hlc...al-city-homes/

...The developers hope to start construction spring 2018 on Building B, a 100-room boutique hotel with three-floors of residential that would replace the two homes slated for demolition and the relocated home on 600 South.

Building B is one of six proposed buildings that make up the Trolley Square project. The building along with Buildings A will be the most prominent and will front 600 South directly south of Trolley Square. Both buildings will be five-stories tall. Building A will be all residential.

The building that will front 700 East is referred to as Building C and will be four-stories tall and all residential. Buildings A, B and C will be built up to the property line on 600 South and 700 East respectively.

Buildings D and E will be midblock and accessed from an internal street connecting 600 South to 700 East. Both buildings will be five-stories tall and all residential. The buildings will front a mid-block private street and Ely Place, a midblock street that connects to 700 East. Building three floors of residential units above two floors of parking. Both buildings will step back 10 feet at the third floor to reduce the scale of the building. The buildings will also have setbacks from the property line to reduce the impact to adjacent properties.

The sixth building, Building F will not abut any of the other buildings. Building F is proposed for the 0.27-acre parcel at the southeast corner of the 600 S and 600 East intersection. Building F will be a three-story apartment building with two floors of parking and two floors of residential...

Downtown Adj. - Latest Update Pics, New Multi-Billion $ Salt Lake City Int. Airport

Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ http://www.buildingsaltlake.com/airp...halfway-point/



Isaac Riddle Reports - Construction of the first phase of the new Salt Lake City International Airport has passed the halfway point. The first phase consists of a new consolidated terminal, south concourse, parking garage, gateway welcome center and the recently completed rental car facility...The new airport will have over 70 gates and will be built to LEED Gold standards, making it one of the most energy efficient airports in the country. The new main terminal will be three levels and will be designed to reflect Utah’s geography, with interior and exterior materials intended to resemble the variable terrains that create a sense of place unique to Utah. Included in the main terminal will be an artificial canyon, resembling the canyons of Southern Utah...Besides rising construction costs, the ongoing construction project will require additional workers. According to airport officials, they have employed 700 construction workers so far but will eventually need up to 2,000 workers. Employing that many new workers could prove challenging as the industry is already underemployed...
