Ogden: the Junction City mega thread

You asked for it (Delts did anyway), you got it! The official Ogden, Utah, development/news/whimsical banter thread.

Here's a brief rundown of 10 notable developments (in no particular order) that I'm aware of in the greater Ogden area:

1. The Junction (Ogden City Mall redevelopment)
Complete demo and redevelopment of 2-block (20 acre) former mall underway. New features include:
  • High-Adventure Recreation Center/Gold's Gym/Fat Cats bowling
  • Treehouse Children's Museum
  • Megaplex theater
  • Two 4-story office buildings
  • 8-story residential building
  • Townhouses
  • Gateway-style retail (built by Boyer Company)

2. Ogden River Project redevelopment area
Planned as a dense urban village along Ogden River north of downtown

http://ogdencity.com/index.php?modul...l.riverproject

3. American Can High Technology Center
  • Historic downtown cannery complex being redeveloped for class-A office use.
  • Possible incubator for high-tech startups.
  • Rumored to be site for Amer Sports USA HQ (Atomic, Salomon, Suunto brands)
4. Gondola
Much-debated proposed transit option from DT to Weber State University, proposed ski resort, and McKay-Dee Medical Center, funded through sale of golf course to the resort developer

http://www.ogdencity.com/displayarticle50.html

5. Modern Streetcars
UTA's choice for transit in Ogden

6. Malan's Basin Ski Resort/Mt. Ogden Golf Course redevelopment
New Ski Resort proposed for mountain above Weber State University campus. To finance the resort and gondola, the developer would purchase the golf course from the city and additional land from WSU and build luxury homes around a redesigned course. Not many details have emerged about the resort itself.

7. Winter-sports-related business hub initiative
Ogden has actively pursued and successfully landed several business relocations of firms serving the winter sports market

8. Adam Aircraft manufacturing facility
New 80k sq. ft. airplane manufacturing facility recently broke ground at Ogden Hinkley Municipal Airport.

9. Union Square
New condos and live/work lofts on historic 25th Street in DT Ogden

10. Commuter Rail
Ogden will be near the end of the line for FrontRunner, which will connect Ogden to DT SLC by 2008.

More to come....

Amer Sports may be taking space in the American Can building. I'm excited that they're interested in restoring and occupying historic space downtown, rather than construct a low-rise tilt-up in the 'burbs.

Amer Sports Ogden site revealed

Thursday, October 19, 2006

By Scott Schwebke
Standard-Examiner staff
sschwebke@standard.net


OGDEN -- Amer Sports Corp. is apparently planning to move its North American headquarters to the American Can Co. complex downtown, according to an official with one of the firm's subsidiaries.

Olivier Canler, vice president of finance for Suunto, based in Carlsbad, Calif., one of three sports equipment brands Amer Sports plans to relocate to Ogden, said the headquarters will be located in a former downtown cannery in need of extensive renovations. He attributed that information to Mike Dowse, the head of Amer's North American operation.

The American Can Co. complex on 20th Street is the only former cannery downtown, Greg Montgomery, the city's planning manager said. Dowse could not be reached for comment.

Mayor Matthew Godfrey did not say which downtown buildings Amer Sports is considering, but noted several structures may be suitable, including the First Security Building on Washington Boulevard, the Kiesel Building on Kiesel Avenue, and the American Can Co. complex.

Amer Sports will likely sign a lease agreement in the next several weeks, Godfrey said.

He also said the city has not offered any cash incentives to Amer Sports.

In addition, the Ogden Redevelopment Agency, made up of the City Council, hasn't been asked to commit tax increment financing for the company, said Community and Economic Development Director Dave Harmer.

Depending on which building it chooses, Amer Sports could realize as much as $2 million in reduced lease payments over 10 years through the Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentives program, he said.

The federal government offers a tax credit that can be taken over 10 years equal to 20 percent of the amount spent for substantial renovations to certified historic structures.

Since the tax credit effectively reduces out-of-pocket expenses for renovations, owners of historic buildings can often reduce lease payments to attract tenants, Ward Ogden, a senior project coordinator for the city's Community and Economic Development Department, said.

In addition to reduced lease payments, Amer Sports will also receive several quality-of-life perks for its employees from local businesses, such as free season passes at Snow Basin ski resort, Godfrey said.

Amer Sports plans to begin relocating three of its brands, Salomon, a maker of snow-sports equipment and apparel based in Portland Ore., Atomic, a ski manufacturer located in Amherst, N.H.; and Suunto, which makes watches and other diving products, to Ogden in June or July 2007. The company expects to employ about 230 workers when fully settled in the first quarter of 2008.

The Governor's Office of Economic Development has authorized tax-rebate incentives totaling about $7.9 million for the company over 10 years.

Tai Pan Trading breaks ground in Clearfield

2nd location will open in October, create 75 jobs

By Natalie Clemens
Deseret Morning News
A Utah-grown wholesale home decor business is branching out by building a retail building in Davis County.
Tai Pan Trading held an official ground-breaking ceremony for a new building at 1400 E. 700 South, Clearfield. The building will be the second for the business, which was started by Nick Stewart of Orem.
Stewart said Clearfield city has been very easy to work with.
"We are thrilled to death to be here in Clearfield because of the reception we've had from the city," he said.
Clearfield Mayor Don Wood welcomed Tai Pan Trading to the area.
"I'd like to express our appreciation to Nick Stewart and Bruce McAllister for the confidence and commitment they have for our city of Clearfield," Wood said.
The Clearfield location of Tai Pan Trading will create 75 new jobs and is scheduled to open in October. Tom Stuart Construction broke ground on the project in the middle of May.
The 100,000-square-foot building will house 70,000 square feet of showroom and 30,000 square feet of warehouse space. It will also include an eatery. The building will be located on the southeast corner of the lot and its parking lot will have 500 spaces
Stewart started Tai Pan Trading in 1980 as wholesale home decor distributor to businesses. In February 2005 he opened the wholesale business up to the public in a newly built retail building in Sandy.
Bruce McAllister, president of Tai Pan Trading, said he is thankful for support from the company's employees. That support, he said, makes the company's expansion possible.
"Without the employees we have right now, and the trust we feel we have with them, we really couldn't make this step," he said.
Stewart said the company hopes to open a third location in Orem in 2007. He said about half of Tai Pan Trading's customers come from outside the Salt Lake Valley.
"We know we have a large customer base up here and a high level of interest up here," he said of Davis County.
McAllister said customers come from as far away as Idaho and Wyoming to visit the Sandy location of Tai Pan Trading.
"We can service our customers much better by bringing this closer," he said, adding that the Davis County location is about 40 miles north of the Sandy location.

Mayor wants 'divisive' gondola signs gone

By Nicole Warburton
Deseret Morning News
Ogden Mayor Matthew Godfrey has asked two groups of residents to stop distributing and to remove lawn signs about a proposal to build a gondola and mountain resort in the city.
Godfrey made the request last week during a meeting of the City Council, he said Tuesday. His request came just a week after some residents accused Godfrey and the city's police chief, Jon Greiner, of putting an officer on administrative leave for his involvement in a campaign against Godfrey. The officer's wife was seen driving a van that displayed signs that were critical of Godfrey.
Godfrey said in an interview that the two incidents were unrelated.
"I don't make decisions based on who criticizes me and what they say," he said. "I try to do what's best for the community and then let the chips fall."
The request that Lift Ogden and Smart Growth Ogden remove their signs was a way to encourage public dialogue about the gondola and resort proposal, and the signs had become divisive, Godfrey said in a news release. Taking down signs isn't "asking people to take down their view points, just their signs, so that we can come together as a community and dialogue about this proposal."
Lift Ogden, which supports the gondola proposal, agreed to remove its signs, according to the news release. Smart Growth Ogden, which is opposed to the gondola project, did not agree.
"We understand how some people might want a break from all the lawn signs," Smart Growth Ogden said in a statement. "However, we don't think the messages on the Smart Growth signs are divisive. Rather, we believe they encourage public involvement in the democratic process."
Smart Growth is opposed to the project because the group's members say they do not want city funds to be used to build the gondola. Lift Ogden says the project will revitalize Ogden's economy.
Residents have been debating the gondola and resort proposal for over a year. The proposal calls for a gondola to run from the western part of the city, through downtown and up Mount Ogden to a pedestrian-only resort in Malan's Basin.
Chris Peterson is the project's developer. In addition to building the resort, Peterson is proposing to buy the city's Mount Ogden Golf Course and build about 400 homes. The money from home sales would help pay for the gondola.
Over 200 Ogden residents have signed petitions urging the city not to sell the golf course. The proposal is now being debated before the Ogden City Council. Peterson has said in past interviews that he hopes to have the gondola running by 2008.

Huge Ogden Defense Depot, Critical part of Ogden renaisance.

Defense Depot Ogden was a U.S. military installation located in Ogden, Utah. It encompassed 1,128 acres with its southeast corner located on 12th Street and Tomlinson Avenue. Its eastern border is that of the original Central Pacific Railroad's right-of-way.


History
Prior to the establishment of what was known as the Utah General Depot on September 15, 1941, the land was used for pasture and farmland. It was one of seven similar facilities located around the nation. The property entered the ownership of the United States Army, under the command of the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), an agency of the Department of Defense (DOD). The DDOU was used as logistical supply and administrative support for military installations and other DOD and Federal agencies. The mission included the receipt, storage, maintenance, inventory and issue of items that include food, clothing, textiles, packages, petroleum products, pesticides, pressurized gases and general medical, industrial, construction and electronic supplies.

During World War II, the DDOU was also used as an internment camp for both German and Italian prisoners of war.

The DDOU was listed in the Base Realignment and Closure Act (BRAC) of 1995. As a result, the base ceased its functions on September 30, 1997. Management of the facilities was then handed over to the Hill Air Force Base DLA, at which time the official name of the facility changed to Defense Depot Hill Utah (DDHU) Ogden Site.

As early as 1995, the City of Ogden appointed a committee to research the development of the DDHU. Much of this work was towards the conversion of the area into a commercial and industrial park. The Ogden Local Redevelopment Authority (OLRA) is charged with ensuring that the City of Ogden's DDOU Reuse Plan is properly implemented. The transfer of ownership was completed in 2003, giving the facility to Ogden City.

After nearly ten years, and at the expense of $115 million dollars, the DDOU/DDHU became the Business Depot Ogden (BDO). The transition from a former military installation to a commercial park involved many changes to the street layout and buildings.

The local Ogden newspaper, the Ogden Standard-Examiner, moved into a remodeled administrative building in the northeastern side of the BDO, investing in a new and much larger printing press for the new facilities.


Present
The City of Ogden and Boyer Co. entered an agreement early in the conversion process that forced any and all profit from the BDO to be diverted directly into investments in the facilities. This has been instrumental in the continuing expansion and development of the BDO. In October 2006, this agreement will expire, giving Ogden City and Boyer Co. even shares of future profits. In 2004, $7 million in revenue was seen, with an expected increase in 2005.

Several notable Federal facilities continue to operate in the BDO. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) maintains a large facility on site as part of its local network of buildings in the Ogden area. The United States Army Reserve continues to operate in its facilities, and a Deployable Medical Systems (DEPMEDS) unit, responsible for the refurbishment and supply of medical units, operated until 2002, when it moved to Hill Air Force Base.

Commercial facilities on site include, among others, Lofthouse Foods, ION Fitness, Kenco Logistic Services, and the Standard Examiner.

Two new buildings totaling 280,000 square feet and nearing completion have already been partially leased. New road and construction area for several industrial buildings along the park's western border, and a planned 500,000-square-foot cross-dock warehouse will be built on a plot near the center of the park.


Future
The BDO is part of a larger plan to entice business to the Ogden area. As of 2005, there are already more employees in the BDO than there was when the facility was still operating as a defense depot. Both Ogden City and Weber County are investing heavily in the hopes that the BDO will be an important part of the health of the city and county for the next 50 years.

Boyer Co. has plans for both commercial and retail offerings along the busy 12th street border. This should include everything from restaurants to office buildings.


Environmental impact
As part of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), the DDOU was placed on the National Priorities List. Due to the nature of many of the activities that occurred under the DDOU's military supervision, groundwater and soil contamination are under an ongoing investigation.

Included in this history was the storage of 2,328, 55-gallon drums of hazardous waste in 1993. This was part of an RCRA Part-B permit, issued by the Utah Solid and Hazardous Waste Control Board. These drums were stored in a facility called the Conforming Storage Building. Storage of these materials ended in 1997, and the building was closed.

As part of the transfer of ownership to the OLRA, two Finding of Suitability to Transfer (FOST) documents were developed and approved by state and federal agencies. A total of 544 acres of uncontaminated ground were transferred to the OLRA. Further FOST activities are ongoing, and should eventually result in a nearly complete transfer of properties.

Post Does anyone have pics of this center?

Davis to issue bonds for center

By Joseph M. Dougherty
Deseret Morning News
FARMINGTON — Davis County has the space to expand the Davis Conference Center, and soon will have the money for it.
The Davis County Board of Commissioners voted to issue $9.96 million in sales-tax revenue bonds to help pay for an addition to the center, located in Layton.
"Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. Phase two is coming," Commissioner Dannie McConkie said.
Commissioners want to expand the conference center to include exhibition spaces to attract larger conventions and more tourism to Davis County. A feasibility study completed earlier this year found that an expansion would be in the county's economic interest.
The bonds will be sold to New York-based UBS Securities, which placed the lowest of seven bids the county received Tuesday morning. When the bonds close Sept. 26, the county will pocket nearly $10 million, which it plans to pay back at 4.35 percent over 21 years. The county will pay nearly $626,000 a year in principal and interest payments.
Commissioners were pleased to learn that the county received the highest bond rating possible by Standard and Poor's, a AAA rating.
"This is amazing," said Jon Bronson, with Zions Bank Public Finance, who has been advising the county on the bonds for the center. "It is incredibly good. It doesn't get any better than this."
The high rating means the county doesn't need to guarantee its good standing and will save $87,000 in insurance. When the county issued bonds in 2003 for the existing conference center, it had to pay insurance costs.
County officials plan to pay for the bonds, which use sales-tax revenues as collateral, through a recent increase in the county's hotel-room tax, which will bring in an extra $225,000 starting in October.
The rest of the financing for the $12 million expansion will be made up through a $500,000 grant from the Utah Legislature and $225,000 in fee waivers and infrastructure improvements that Layton will provide.
Steve Rawlings, Davis County clerk/auditor, said the county is awaiting design plans for the expansion from the architectural firm that designed the original conference center and could break ground as soon as winter, depending on weather.

ok i just got buildinggurl's permission to go up to Ogden today to take some pics of projects up there. I'll try to post some later today maybe once we get back. LOL.

Looks like we will hit some road delays while going up there...






Road Construction Likely to Cause Major Delays this Weekend
October 20th, 2006 @ 2:57pm

Alex Cabrero Reporting

Presumably, a lot of drivers are going to have to take different routes to get where they need to go this weekend.

All the traffic heading Northbound on I-15 is going onto Riverdale Road, and if you've ever been on Riverdale Road you know it's always busy anyway.


Walk into Dave Gibby's floral shop in Riverdale and you'll find things to make you feel better, things for a big achievement, and things for your loved one. Soon you might also find things to help you smile while sitting in traffic.

Dave Gibby: "It's been horrible ever since they started I-15."

Gibby's shop is just off of Riverdale Road, right near I-15, and with all the construction on the interstate Riverdale Road has become one big stop and go.

Dave Gibby, Gibby Floral: "Every time they close a lane or something like that, then everybody spills out on the surface streets."

That makes delivering flowers on time a little tricky.

Dave Gibby: "Luckily we know all the back roads."


Others should get to know them too. This weekend in Weber County, at night and early morning, I-15 will be totally shutdown. Heading south, it'll detour off at 21st street. Heading North, off at Riverdale Road, same for traffic on I-84.

UDOT says it'll be a mess, but necessary.

Nile Easton, Utah Dept. of Transportation: "When we look at when we can do these things, there is really no good time because, in our growing state, people are driving 24-7 now."

Dave Gibby: "I got a stack of maps here. I stack them here just to help the people who get lost."

As frustrating as it all is, though, even Gibby agrees when the work is done, it'll be worth it.


Dave Gibby: "Thank goodness we got the freeway system. What would happen if we didn't have it? It'd be the pits."

Work being done on the interstate includes new surfaces, new lanes and new bridges.

The closure tonight lasts until 8 tomorrow morning. Then, it closes again at 9pm until 10am. Sunday, it's shut down from 9pm to 5am.

More closures in the future will be necessary as well.

There will also be traffic changes on Hinckley Drive, or 31st street. Traffic will be rerouted to use the new ramps. Expect some abrupt lane changes along I-15 near the 31st street exit. Road crews are widening the road and will shift traffic to the new inside lanes to I-15 while they work on the old part of the road.

There are two other problem areas you need to know about too. In Davis County, starting tonight at 7pm until tomorrow night, traffic on I-15 will narrow to one lane in the Clearfield area for bridge repair. During the same time eastbound on I-215 between State and 20th East will also be down to one lane.

I spent my high school years in Ogden and my family still lives there. It hasn't been much fun looking at 2 or 3 Utah-sized blocks in the middle of downtown sit as a dirt lot. I hope the get going (maybe they have?) with the plans. The other thing the need to do in tear down half that parking garage to better connect the new developments with ballpark.

That being said, I think the future of downtown Ogden is bright. The plan of attracting ski-related business is going suprisingly well. If it fully pans out, it is going to give Ogden a unique vibe. The gondola and resort, however, is unnecessary and a good way to destroy a beautiful mountain.

Ogden must decide, International destination or not.

Ski82,

I'm not sold either way yet on the gondola. But all those businesses that are ski and sport's and tourist related are banking on it. It will be like making downtown Ogden a main street Park City or Whistler/Blackcomb, only alot bigger. They are anticipating thousands of tourists being carried right from the curb of a vibrant downtown Ogden to the mountain tops, and back down again. Without the gondola, all those world-class plans for Ogden will not happen even close to the level hoped for.


Hmmmmm, I think I just sold myself on the gondola's
