Agreed, and hopefully Goldman will cause a ripple effect with similar business showing an increased interest in downtown.

Glass pane shot out in Salt Lake City building

SALT LAKE CITY — A large pane of glass was shot at and shattered sometime Thursday night at one of downtown Salt Lake City's newest high-rise buildings.

A 6-by-20-foot piece of glass was shattered at 222 S. Main when it was shot by either a BB gun or something stronger, said Salt Lake City police detective Dennis McGowan. The incident happened sometime Thursday night or early Friday morning.

Employees arriving at work at about 10 a.m. discovered the broken glass, even though the building provides 24-hour security. The guard that night said he wasn't aware of the shattered glass and didn't know anything about it until employees told him, McGowan said.

The cost to replace the glass will be $8,000 to $10,000, McGowan said.

A week ago, several windows at the Wells Fargo Building, near the 222 Main building, also were vandalized.

That's really unfortunate! Why?! I feel the same way when I see unwanted graffiti.

I wonder if GreenBro had anything to do with it?

It is quite upsetting to hear, read and see vandalism. I hope one of those buildings in the area has exterior suveillence cameras that may have seen something.

I saw the window boarded up. It's one of the huge ones right in the lobby. I'm amazed no one, especially the security guard, saw it happen.

Hey, I'm still mad at Goldman ... but shooting out a window? That does seem rather childish.

222 South Main and Hotel Monaco look great together!

There was a lot of negative space before.

H4vok, love the shots. Agreed, SLCdude. I think that the Hotel Monaco building actually looks better having 222 S Main next to it. It doesn't look like this skinny building that could tip over either way.

Someone has got to go down for what has happened! So far, banks have gotten off scott-free. Billions in bonuses, etc, and the feds bailed them out??!! They are taking our money and laughing at us basically. There's got to be at least a scapegoat, and maybe it's Goldman, or Washington Mutual. Whatever the excuse, it was not ethical, and is morally wrong. IMHO

I agree with you... however, of note, WaMu already went down... They and Wachovia are the biggest banks ever to fail in the US.

I have a feeling things just starting to unrattle ...again. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOF!!!!!!!!!!! ...and then who is left standing. Look at the numbers AND history.

I hope and doubt this will not have an impact on the 222 S. Main lease especially if the leasers is an uneffected division.

So anyone know if Goldman's made the move yet?

In the article announcing their move, they also said they were in negotiation with another financial firm to move in, that would be announced in the next month or so...

I think that it may be safe to say...

I think that it may be safe to say that after listening to the Goldman Sachs grilling in front of the congressional financial inquiries that they may never move anywhere again.

Of course I could be absolutely and totally wrong but they sounded like incompetent, self serving idiots on many of their responses. Their future seems kind of dim right now.
