Simple Forum Guidelines
#1 All posts that are not related to Salt Lake City Proper, but fall into the Official Salt Lake City Metro, i.e Salt Lake, Summit and Tooele Counties, will be posted on the Salt Lake City MSA Thread.
#2 Regarding the creation of individual threads for particular projects, such as 222 South Main,106th South, or Gehry. Until the Projects have broken ground, they should remain in their respective threads. Then, after they have broken ground, we should be respectful enough to get a majority consensus before creating a new thread for that specific project.

Finished in 2009
Salt Lake City, Utah will see the opening of a new water park come Summer 2009. Cowabunga Bay Neighborhood Waterpark will test the limits of how compact a water park can get and still be functional.
Designed by Whitewater West and founded by the Huish brothers, the park will move away from the traditional idea of an all-day park experience in lieu of a compact park meant for 3-4 hours of fun. Because the park's founders are designing this park to be an in-and-out experience, the price point falls close in line at $10-15 for entry.
The structure will stand 70 feet tall
and provide the slides, giant water buckets, and lazy rivers expected of the water park experience. See the images below for an idea of how this park is going to shape up.

The Ridge Condominiums
The Ridge consists of four, 4-story luxury condominium buildings to be built in two Phases. Each building will be constructed above two-plus levels of controlled access underground parking. In all, there are 201 condominium residences planned for this exceptional eight acre site. Phase I consists of 95 total units: Building A (43 units) and Building B (52 units). Demolition and excavation activities for Phase I commenced late in 2007.
The parking structure for Building A is now complete, laying the groundwork for the vertical framing of the condominium units. Completion of the 43 units in Building A is anticipated during the next six months.
Old Mill Corporate Center complex
"The fourth building in the Old Mill Corporate Center complex was approved three years ago as a six-story facility -- the tallest height for office buildings in the city.
But a few weeks ago, developers Beckstrand & Associates informally pitched Cottonwood Heights city leaders with another possibility: a 6 to 8-story structure.
