Downtown/Central - Trolley Square Redevelopment Updates

Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/big...rolley-square/


...The SK Hart Family of Companies, the owners of Trolley Square, see creating a mixed-use center and appealing to Utah’s outdoors and fitness culture as keys to reviving the mall on 600 South and 700 East.
SK Hart had previously announced plans to build a residential component to the south of the existing Trolley Square facility. But those plans have evolved to now include the renovation of the current mall and a repositioning of its current retail mix. On Tuesday, April 17, the mall’s owners released Request for Proposals for a theater and food hall...

..The proposed food hall will be between 15,000 and 30,0000 square feet and will occupy the second floor of the south face of the main building on 600 South. The food hall would provide curated space for food vendors. Although the SK Hart is seeking RFPs for the food hall, they are already in negotiations with an interested group. The team also hopes to leverage spaces that can accommodate large outdoor dining areas to attract more small craft restaurants, bars and fast casual restaurants.
Beyond enhancing dining options, the team wants to bring back the movie theater that was closed when the mall was last renovated a decade ago. The mall’s owners are seeking proposals for a movie theater and sports entertainment center that would be built in relatively the same location as the previous theater.

In addition to permanent retail space, the developers are exploring small flexible retail pods that would occupy the second level area just west of the Google Fiber store. The retail pods would be between 75 and 300 square feet and would be reserved for artisans and crafters that would like to complement their online presence with a small physical space. Both the retail pods and the food hall would serve as incubator space for creative entrepreneurs...

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

...Inspired by the success of current tenants like Orange Theory Fitness and Core Power Yoga, the developers want to expand the mall’s health and fitness presence. Momentum Indoor Climbing will open an 11,000-square-foot fitness and climbing gym at the mall’s west side near the other fitness-oriented facilities. The gym will open in next eight to nine months.

Renovation of the mall will coincide with construction of the Trolley Square Apartments. Current plans for the residential component include a boutique hotel and up to 400 residential units that will be dispersed among five buildings on 600 South and 700 East...

Contemporary Landmarks - Salt lake city makes its mark
on the global architectural map


...The city centre is only a few miles from world-class ski resorts, mountain bike trails, and protected land. While many outdoor enthusiasts call Salt Lake City home, it also draws a young, forward-thinking, and educated workforce.
Tech companies in particular are flocking to Utah. The state is home to more than 4,000 startups and was recently named one of the top locations in the United States for online business. With the help of the area known as Silicon Slopes
just south of Salt Lake, Utah is the third fastest growing state in the nation

Utah welcomes more than 25 million visitors to national parks each year and also serves as a cultural hub and host to the annual Sundance Film Festival, which brings in film stars and cinema lovers from around the world. The George S and
Dolores Dore Eccles Theater, completed in 2016, is Utah’s world-class performing arts theatre. It both enhances the film festival experience but also brings extended stay, first-run award-winning touring Broadway musicals to Utah
year round.

Since hosting the successful 2002 XIX Olympic Winter Games, Salt Lake City has embraced unique modern structures — and this architectural boom hasn’t slowed. The Natural History Museum of Utah, which marries nature with the
manmade, continues to inspire many projects. GSBS Architects/Ennead Architects built this iconic museum with mother nature in mind. The structure is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certified building that
seamlessly integrates state-of-the-art design ideas, and it has successfully paved the way for all that is coming to Salt Lake City.

Read on to see the projects that are putting Utah on the global architectural playing field...

Contemporary Landmark Developments Continued...

Public Safety Building

Early on, city leaders had clear aspirations for the PSB, said Miller. In addition to function, the city wanted an energy-efficient structure that would blend into the downtown campus that includes Library Square — and
the showcase Main Library — The Leonardo museum and historic City Hall. They also wanted an open plaza — displaying public art — capable of staging new and existing city events (such as the Utah Arts Festival) and a permanent
public safety museum in the lobby. "They wanted it to stand up to the library and City Hall," Miller said. "They wanted it to be an open and inviting public safety building, which is kind of an unusual stance for public safety. The entire
north elevation is glass. It invites people to have a look at what's going on."...but what likely will place the PSB in a class all its own is its net-zero capability, which means it will generate as much energy as it uses."[This] sets an example
for what can be done with our buildings, " Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker said. "We have the first net-zero Public Safety Building in the country, and it's getting a lot of national and even international attention."It's believed to be the
largest net-zero building in the country, according to Miller...

L.D.S. Conference Center



Curb appeal of parkway brook running along front of massive structure -
We built the entire stream complex that runs the length of the south side of the LDS Conference Center, and integrated it with waterways in City Creek Park and the Brigham Young Historic Park. Based on the intended
feel of each of these properties, the appearance of the water feature changes. It begins in an environment of hard temple quarry granite and rustic wooden water wheels and progresses to rounded stones and gentle cascades.
Building this feature to run the entire block (east to west) on North Temple in downtown Salt Lake City required careful and copious cooperation with the city as we coordinated road closures, flaggers and more to get all the
rock and boulders delivered to what was a very wide, meandering job site.




To Be Continued...

Salt Lake's Newly Completed Eccles Theater shows 'incredible' revenue returns in debut year


Theater's 2017 returns exceeded projections by more than double

Katie McKellar, Deseret News https://www.deseretnews.com/article/...ebut-year.html

SALT LAKE CITY — Years ago, when downtown Salt Lake City's future 2,500-seat theater was coming down to a vote, critics feared it would end in disaster: an unprofitable and underused stage that would dilute business for other theaters while still relying on a subsidy.

Fast forward seven years: Salt Lake City and Salt Lake County officials are thrilled — some even shocked — to see the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater's first-year revenues are booming, more than doubling budget projections.

In 2017, the first full year of operations, the theater was projected to return about $1.3 million in revenue after expenses. But it produced more than $2.6 million...

...Broadway revenue was projected at about $630,000 for 2017, but it actually produced 180 percent of that: $1.1 million, according to the budget.

"The theater has certainly outperformed any budgets we set," said Lia Summers, senior arts and culture adviser in the Salt Lake City Mayor's Office. "We're glad it's being well-visited."...

...Darrin Casper, Salt Lake County's deputy mayor of finance and chief financial officer, attributed the extra revenue to not only high box office sales, but also huge savings in utilities because the building was even more energy-efficient than expected...

...Utilities were projected to cost more than $700,000 for the year, but actual expenses turned out to be much lower: about $233,000. Both building operation and theater operation costs also came in under budget.

Casper, who helped draft the theater's financial projections when county and city leaders were debating whether to approve it, said "any fears I have had as a financial manager" for the theater's performance have disappeared.

"I am absolutely thrilled," he said. "It's exceeded our expectations. It's been remarkable and just a jewel for the community."

In fact, there was so much extra revenue in the first year, there was enough to fill the theater's $1 million operating reserves (in case the theater ever has a bad year) and the $850,000 reserve for long-term maintenance projects, Casper said...

Downington Place

Developers, Downington Place, want to build three attached townhomes on 0.28 acres at the southeast corner of the 1300 East and Downington Avenue intersection. The homes will be three stories with a garage on the ground floor, living space on the second and two bedrooms and a study on the third floor. The homes will be energy efficient with solar panels on the roof. The developers are requesting a zoning amendment to allow for the increased residential density in the predominantly single-family neighborhood.
