Hey there SLC Projects,
There were supposed to be two 40 story towers at the Triad Center, one on the corner where the arena sits and one across the street North of the arena. The two towers were to be mirror images of each other and were supposed to be the gateway to the city from the West.
I agree with Happy Valley Freak, I hate it when plans fall through.
We could of had a very nice skyline to look at, but there is still hope!
Maybe some company would like to relocate here and will need a large high rise to be built.
Here is something I found.
The area, officially called Triad America, would be home to two twin towers, towering about 40 stories. The area would have also been home to some smaller 20 story residential towers, as well as a hotel and other 5-10 story buildings. But the shady deals that took place throughout the time of groundbreaking brought the inevitable. The groups behind the area screwed the city and after all the dust settled, only two buildings, phase one of the project, were built. Today we know them as Broadcast House, home to KSL-TV in Salt Lake City, Utah.
