As the announcement says, it's an Expansion Plan which I read as expanding their current location, not moving. So it's as Delts speculated, they are going to expand piece by piece, I am assuming this is simply the first step.

I was in Seattle last thursday & friday, and I stopped in the office of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson and snapped this blurry photo of the model of the Nu Skin expansion. It looks like they will be replacing the glass on the existing office tower with similar glass that they are using on the expansion, or at least I'm hoping. These guys are currently designing a super cool apartment tower in Bellevue. I wish I could have taken a photo of it.

That would be really cool if they do end up replacing the glass on the tower to match the new building.
Does anybody still know if plans are still in the works for a 3rd building/tower to go up on the far west corner? Thought I remember hearing about that once but don't remember who or when that was.

Kiplinger: Provo area ranked No. 2 for home value recovery

Genelle Pugmire - Daily Herald

http://www.heraldextra.com/news/loca...45476c5ff.html

PROVO -- A strengthening local economy and fewer homes on the market have made Provo and the surrounding area No. 2 in the nation for increased home prices, according to the Kiplinger Report. Provo's values have risen 21.8 percent in the past year. Salt Lake City ranks eighth out of Kiplinger's top 12 cities.

"It's exciting," Taylor Oldroyd, CEO of the Utah County Association of Realtors, said. "It shows a larger picture and that real estate is doing well. Utah probably is leading in a couple of areas. There's not much inventory so the price goes up."

Oldroyd added that Utah County's November real estate report shows fewer than 2,100 existing homes on the market. He also noted that homes were selling in an average of 50 days as compared to 90 days the year before. He expects to see more homes come on the market as residents gain more confidence...


The top 12 cities where home prices have risen most.

1. Phoenix, Ariz.

2. Provo Area

3. Cape Coral-Ft. Meyers, Fla.

4. Minneapolis, Minn.

5. Akron, Ohio

6. Youngstown, Ohio

7. Seattle, Wash.

8. Salt Lake City

9. Boise, Idaho

10. San Jose, Calif.

11. Washington, D.C.

12. Tucson, Ariz.

in case you havent seen the awesome photo of the tabernacle on STILTS going around on facebook, i suggest you hunt for it. its on the new provo development page for those that want to take a look. they are digging 38 feet to make a basement underneath the building and then putting the tabernacle on top of it. its pretty cool looking, and another construction MARVEL that humans can do to renovate and re-BUILD a builidng. the inner part of the SHELL of the building is all ready to go. its a SOLID behemoth!

.....cant wait to see how the landscaping is going to turn out, and how its going to coordinate with nuskin's development.

should be interesting!

Ok, so let me see if I understand everything that is happening in this picture.

1. Top Left corner we have the new Parking Garage going in for Nu Skin.
2. To the right of that is the Nu skin Campus with open green space behind their new office building?
3. Below that is the old Nu skin parking garage that the LDS church bought for Temple parking?
4. Below that is the new LDS Temple going in.
5. To the left of that ( Bottom left corner ) closing off the street to expand temple grounds to turn the block south into open green space?....with underground parking? So if there's going to be underground parking for that block then why do they need the old Nu Skin parking garage? Unless they need both or the church has other plan for the parking garage?

Also still not sure if I'm a big fan of closing those two streets down. Now Provo is going to have a giant "L" shape block in the middle of their downtown.

And we also have the white-topped post office building on the left edge. Has the fate of the post office been decided?

Looking at the USPS organization's financials as a whole, it looks like they're on borrowed time (nationwide).

That being said, if they do somehow figure out their 10's of billions in annual budgeting shortfall, there's a larger processing facility in East Bay and a newer facility in SE Orem by the University Mall that will take over. Everything I have read makes me believe that the old downtown Provo facility is on it's way out.

It also looks to me like the space directly behind the Nu Skin expansion has been dug down. Now if they're going to make that a grassy area, why would they have dug down? I think it may have some underground parking, and then possibly grassy up top?

Also, has anyone heard anything new about University Tower? Last thing that was posted on here is that it's not dead... and is going to hit 13 floors. That was a while ago. Has anything new been found out? Anyone with any connections hearing anything?

The post office property is not part of the plans for the temple block:







LDS Church: New Provo temple to stay true to historic roots
10 hours ago • Genelle Pugmire - Daily Herald

Quote:
According to the plans, the temple will be approximately 85,084 square feet with four floors -- two below ground and two above. The main, ground-level entrance will be on the south side of the building; there also will be an entrance from the underground parking area. From ground level to the top of the middle spire is 127 feet. The statue of the Angel Moroni will be added to that.

There will be underground parking for 245 vehicles and an additional surface parking lot for 50 vehicles at the south end of the grounds. Both lots will be accessible from 200 South and 100 West.

I thought that was an interesting article; I don't know the area or the original building well enough to know a lot of what they were referencing, but I appreciate that it will be more than just an older shell around a modern interior (the case for the Logan and Saint George Temples, albeit for different reasons).

Right on. In fact, if the PO goes, and the LDS church buys it, why not do a City Creek-like effort. Put a residential/business tower there, where people can live and work right next to the temple. If they have learned from their Ogden and SLC temple experiments, the Church needs to take a proactive approach in Provo as well, and assure that people live and work near their temples to assure they stay pertinent and viable within the overall community.

What about a hotel for those out of towners who might visit the temple.
