Believe it. It was real. This was in files of one of largest construction companies that I worked for. I am now a project manager for a construction company here in Utah.
The D News had plans to moved long before they did, but didn't want to leave the building empty. There was originally talk of just building a new hotel where the Marriott is located at City Creek, but then it spurred into placing it on this block to the south and placing another department store where the Marriott is now.
As many of you said, the current property owners already have plans for this block. None of them where willing to consider selling, thus it died at a concept.
