Recently completed and proposed projects:
Obviously this project, tenatively named "University Tower" (kind of generic and cheezy if you ask me... I hope it changes names before its done) is our big boy for now.
Annonced in August of 2007, the Zions Bank Financial Center will be another 10 story building built in the core of the city. This will be very interesting to see how this and the University Tower affect downtowns vibrancy. The ZB FC alone will bring about 400 office jobs to downtown Provo.
At the same time as the University Tower was announced, 2 low-rise 4 story retail/residential buildings were announced along Center St.
The Huntington, Provo
Was announced about two years ago and has finally broken ground in downtown about 2 blocks south of the proposed University Tower. 61 Units.
The same developer who is doing the Huntington is also developing Freedom Point on Freedom Blvd and 2nd north. 32 Units
