Station Park Awakens

Updated Plans

CenterCal Properties

Farmington, Harmons breaks ground in Farmington, store No. 16

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7...ore-No-16.html
...The future 70,000 square-foot store, the 16th store in the 78-year-old family-owned chain, is expected to open May 1 at Farmington's Station Park.

Station Park is a mixed-used development, fronted by California-based CenterCal Properties and planned to be a power retail center for central Davis County.

A 14-screen CineMark movie theater, and other yet-to-be-named tenants, are expected to open the same day...

...Trottier said he expects CenterCal to announce more Station Park tenants in coming weeks.


Additional Info,Farmington Station Park Update:

Report By Craig Frazer, Realtor, CRS, GRI, CLHMS
RE/MAX Metro


I attended a meeting last night at the CenterCal offices in Farmington in which members of the city council (along with the mayor) and Craig Trottier, Vice President of Development for CenterCal Properties discussed the current status of the Station Park commercial/retail development adjacent to the Farmington FrontRunner train station. In spite of the current economic conditions which have slowed the project, it is ready to move forward with two publicly confirmed tenants in the project. Most everyone has heard that Harmons will be opening a store in Farmington Station. In addition, Cinemark has confirmed their plans for a multi-screen theater complex within the project. There has been additional leasing activity but at this time no other tenants can be publicly announced.

Sufficient tenant commitments are in place, however, to allow for work on the project to continue. It is anticipated there will be additional site work done beginning in late April or early May with construction on the Harmons and Cinemark facilities moving forward in August. At this time, both Harmons and Cinemark are projecting a late spring opening (April/May) although that timetable has some flexibility to move faster if economic conditions warrant.

There was a good deal of discussion regarding the layout and design of the “town square” component of the development and current design concepts reflect a small town central park type of theme. The current make up of the project continues to consist of a mix of street level retail operations with commercial office space contained on the second floors of most buildings. The project continues to reflect a 130 room hotel component and there is serious discussion taking place of adding a complete healthclub/spa facility within the project. The intent is to have a good mix of national, regional and local retailers in this complex. Many of the retailers who have expressed interest do not currently have facilities in Davis County. For several others, this will be their first facilities in northern Utah.

The plans call for 12-18 restaurants in the project with upper end dining establishments circling the perimeter of the interior park area. It was clearly pointed out during the discussion that there are NO plans for a “food court” type of set up. The vast majority, if not all, of the dining options will provide “dine in” capabilities. The less formal dining options will most likely be located near the theater area but it is currently designed so that food services will be available throughout the project.

If the economy improves sufficiently for retailers to begin expanding and entering into lease agreements, the Station Park project could be fully operational by late 2011. However, it would not be unexpected for full build and lease out to occur by the spring of 2012.

Overall, it was a good meeting attended by approximately 15-20 residents. There is a design model of the complex available and I would encourage other Farmington residents to swing by and take a look. The CenterCal leasing office is located at 42 North 650 West in Farmington.

Rio Grande Depot a crown jewel - Depot celebrates its centennial
with exhibit that runs through Saturday


http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7...rande-Depot-a-
crown-jewel.html

The Denver and Rio Grande Depot, constructed in 1910, owed
its existence to a boom in transportation and industry.

In the early 1900s, Salt Lake City was establishing its place as the "Crossroads of the West"
as more people and goods passed through on their way to other
destinations, as well as came to stay.

The city was thriving and growing. Since the turn of that century,
the population of Salt Lake City had nearly doubled, going from
53,000 to 92,000. Several large hotels had been built or were
under construction; several large commercial buildings were changing
the look of downtown...

An overview of the newly resurrected Richard Street, which runs north/south through the Crossroads Block portion

S.L. moves ahead on soccer complex plan


http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7...plex-plan.html

SALT LAKE CITY — Saying opposition to a soccer complex near the Jordan River is rooted in misinformation, the Salt Lake City Council voted Tuesday night to move forward with the $22.8 million project.

The council's action authorizes the city administration to begin entering into contracts for the 160-acre complex near 2200 North, allowing construction to begin this month in anticipation of a fall 2011 opening...

..."It is a massive remodeling on a scale of, say, the pyramids. Not building them, moving them"...

The Canyon resort remakes its runs


Kevin Alvers, left, and other Santa Clauses wait in the lift line at The Canyons in Park City Saturday. The ski resort invited the first 50 guests in full Santa attire to ski or ride for free. (Jeffrey D. Allred, Deseret News)

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7...-its-runs.html

THE CANYONS — Years ago, they invented lifts that took care of the problem of gravity.

Then they figured out how to make snow.

Now they're moving mountains.

Ski resorts. You've got to hand it to them. They're not afraid to tackle the big stuff.

Today's specific example is The Canyons resort in Park City, where, as we speak, a flotilla of bulldozers, track hoes, dump trucks and other assorted earth-moving equipment is turning a south-sloping hillside into a north-sloping hillside.

By Thanksgiving, what used to be up will be down, and vice versa...


SKI Magazine Feature: The End of Chairlift Chills

September 7, 2010 - 2:07pm
by Aaron Kahn


The Canyons Resort is pioneering one of the biggest innovations in skier comfort since Gore Tex, a heated capsule that completely shields riders from the elements. The orange, Plexiglas bubble wraps up, from the footrests, over the safety bar, then behind the back of the bench.

Without the nuisance of piercing winds, it’s possible to enjoy the heated seat that charges for 7-seconds as it rounds the base of the terminal and reaches a temperature of about 55 degrees.

On a clear day, according to The Canyons communications coordinator, Hannah Bowling, “the views will be unmatched. It will feel like you’re in a pair of sunglasses.”

This added protection will also allow operators to raise the lift speed, moving riders from the Grand Summit Hotel to the mid-mountain Lookout Peak, then to the Sun Peak Lift, a change of 3,190 feet, in just nine-minutes. Increasing the lift speed inherently raises uphill lift-capacity; projections are as high as 47% more riders per hour.

The first of it’s kind in North America, this chairlift design originated in Austria and is expected to start a new trend at resorts around the nation, according to Bowling.

“It’s our goal to find the newest and most advanced technologies, this is just the start,” said Bowling.

Westminster College opens new science building



the chronicle.com

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7...-building.html

...The $30 million, 60,000-square-foot facility replaces a 60-year-old building a tenth its size. Each of its four floors is wrapped around an open atrium showcasing a spiraling, DNA-helix-shaped sculpture by local artists Dan Cummings and Dana Kuglin based on the genetic blueprint for a butterfly's wing.

Abundant natural light, recycled materials — including wood from a landmark plane tree that came down to make way for the building — and water conservation features make it a green structure, with the goal of earning gold Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) status later this month...



The Meldrum Science Center will house classroom labs, areas for studying and engrossing, science-based artwork. (Tom Smart, Deseret News)

Demolition begins for new convention center


An artist's rendering shows what the Utah Valley Convention Center will look like when completed in March 2012. Utah Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau

http://www.heraldextra.com/news/loca...d5145d43c.html

.."Demolition is in high gear," said Don Nay, associate county public works director and project manager. "Things are really going to start now. Outside demolition begins in three weeks."...

..."It's fabulous," said Mayor John Curtis. "Every resident of Provo and Utah County should be delighted. It's a facilitator for making many good things happen in downtown Provo."...

I found a fenced off area with building(s) torn down. So I'm guessing that would be the site. Anyway I took some photos of the site.

New convention center Update

Not sure what building or buildings used to be there. But there you have it. The buildings are down and Provo is well on it's way of getting their own convention center.

I also took a picture of a building that I'm guessing is the future site of the new 6-story Nu Skin building expansion will go. I'm a right? Will THIS building be torn down for that expansion?


And here are some pictures of the new Zions Bank Building and the Wells Fargo Building.

Not the best Photos since we were just driving by. But there you have it. Since my mother in law now lives in Provo I now have a reason to come down to Provo, so therefore I plan on following up on these projects whenever I do visit.

I'm remembering an earlier rendering of the U-Star Building, with a different stone-work used. It was a rounder shaped stone, and didn't fit well with the building's overall look. I remember a lot of people hated it. I think I'm really going to like this linear stone/flag stone treatment a lot more.

Northern Metro,

Northrop Grumman to move to $1.4 billion Hill AFB research park

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7...arch-park.html


Falcon Hill

HILL AIR FORCE BASE — It's been in the works for two years, but Davis County officials learned Thursday that
the first tenant for a 550-acre research park on Hill Air Force Base's west side will be Northrop Grumman.

It signifies the beginning of Falcon Hill Aerospace Research Park, which, when completed, will be northern Utah's
largest economic development project...

...The research park is the largest project of its kind in the U.S. Defense Department and could bring as many as
15,000 high-paying jobs to Davis and Weber counties...
