This was in the paper, More about the highrise in Salt Lake.



LDS plans call for tower of 32 stories
By Doug Smeath
Deseret Morning News
If the LDS Church's real-estate planners get their way, a few people in Salt Lake City will be living 400 feet above ground.

Plans for City Creek Center, a mixed-use development proposed by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to replace the downtown Crossroads Plaza and ZCMI Center malls, call for at least five residential towers.
One of those buildings would be 415 feet tall — or 32 stories. That's only 20 feet shorter than the city's tallest structure, the LDS Church Office Building.
The tallest residential tower — at this point, developers are calling it only Tower 2 — would be built on 100 South between Main Street and West Temple, next to the Marriott Hotel. It would not be part of City Creek Center when the complex is set to open in 2011 but would be a second-phase addition to be built later, based on demand for more housing in the center.
City Creek Center spokesman Dale Bills said developers want the tall building because of "an interplay of engineering and economics."
The church wants a building taller than 100 feet to allow for more housing units. The added height requires more structural-stability elements, and once those elements are added, a lot of new height potential opens up.
"You get to a certain height and say, 'I might as well go a little taller,'" said Mark Gibbons, president of the church's real-estate arm, Property Reserve Inc.
But PRI will need the Salt Lake City Planning Commission's approval to build the high-rise, as well as three other housing towers on the mall blocks. City ordinance requires conditional-use approval for midblock buildings — meaning those more than 165 feet from a corner — that are planned to exceed 100 feet in height.
Two towers on South Temple would book-end historic Richards Street on the Crossroads block and would be 125 feet tall. Another South Temple Tower, on historic Regent Street west of the Zions Bank building, would be 185 feet high.
The four 100-foot-plus towers would have a combined total of 319 condominium units. If all the buildings were restricted to 100 feet, that total would drop to 96 units.
The center will include a number of other housing units, including a tower at the corner of West Temple and South Temple where the Inn at Temple Square used to stand and rental units above retail components throughout the project. None of those residential elements will require height exemptions. In total, the two blocks would have between 420 and 430 residential units.
Those units will include apartments for rent and condos for purchase. Gibbons said no announcements have been made yet on prices, but there will be a "wide range."
He said about 500 people have already expressed interest in buying housing in the project, although it is not expected that the units will go on sale for at least two years.
Doug Dansie, a staff member with the city's Planning Division, said the 100-foot midblock requirements are "soft," because the ordinance doesn't prohibit taller buildings, it merely requires a conditional-use permit.
The commission is scheduled to vote on the height exceptions Feb. 14.
PRI officials say the Tower 2 height is justified by the dramatic increase in the number of residents who would be able to live there. Moreover, they said, the buildings on the corners of 100 South at West Temple and Main — the Marriott and the Crandall-McIntyre building — are significantly shorter, so the block is not currently overburdened with tall buildings.
Preliminary plans for Tower 2, drawn by architects Zimmer Gunsel Frasca, show a restaurant and retail space at the tower's ground floor. The lower levels would have more units, with levels 24 through 32 only six condos per floor, ranging from 935 to 2,015 square feet.

So far with the whole city creek center project Downtown salt lake is getting two new highrise condo towers...


1.City creek Condo Tower 1
................26-stories
2.City creek Condo Tower 2................32-stories ( The same one I was just talking about. )


We could even be getting a Condo Tower 3 that could be even taller then the first two. But just waiting to hear word on that.


With these new Towers Salt Lake City will have a new skyline in a few years.

Actually... Emporis has their info wrong (hence the wrong info on the SSP database as well.)

Actual heights are:

To the roof:
1. Church Office Building (COB) 420' (435' with antenna)
2. Wells Fargo Center 400' (422' with antenna)... the roof height is according to the official press release upon completion of the WFC and the antenna height is an FAA number

The SSP database and Emporis are comparing the COB roof level against the WFC antenna height...

The Wells Fargo Building is taller, but the LDS Church Office Building looks taller because it is on a hill.

Lehi may get 450-foot hotel

Brainchild of Gehry would be tallest building in Utah

By Amy Choate-Nielsen
Deseret Morning News
LEHI — Imagine driving south on I-15, gazing down at Utah Valley's flat farmlands and urban sprawl, then turning a corner and bam — there's Utah's tallest building.
Keith Johnson, Deseret Morning NewsReal estate developer Brandt Andersen discusses a model of the development planned near Point of the Mountain. The proposed 450-foot high, five-star hotel is intended to be the icon for the 85-acre development that will include lakes, a sports arena, retail shops and mixed-use residential areas.
The brainchild of famed architect Frank Gehry, the building will surpass in height the state's other two 400-foot plus structures — the LDS Church Office Building (435 feet) and the Wells Fargo Center (422 feet), both located in downtown Salt Lake City.
Creating an iconic structure — possibly made of glass — is the goal of 29-year-old entrepreneur Brandt Andersen, who has commissioned the project with the hopes that Gehry will design a community that will be a powerful landmark in Utah.
"What you see is the roof (of an arena), the iconic sort of hotel building, water coming through here — it's meant to really stand out as almost like a piece of art coming into (Lehi) city or into Salt Lake County," Andersen said Wednesday, as he unveiled a model of the project for the first time.
Other icons of the project will be a 22-acre wakeboarding lake that sits in the middle of the property and a 500,000 square foot in-ground sports arena. The project, which boasts 70 percent open space, will also have retail, restaurants and 2,500 high-end housing units.
Parking will mostly be placed underground to make room for more greenery. Attached to the arena will be an amphitheater, which could be used for meditation or yoga, Andersen said. He emphasizes that the whole theme of the project is to encourage active living.
With wooden blocks and plastic walls used to represent the various buildings and square footage that will be associated with the project, it's hard to tell what the final product will actually look like. But Andersen guarantees it will be unique.
"The site flows, and it kind of moves," Andersen said. "The buildings will not be square boxes, not even close. There's not going to be any arguments over stone vs. stucco. You won't hear any of that. That's not me and that's not Frank."
Andersen doesn't know exactly how much the project will cost or what the buildings will be made of, but he estimates the final price tag will be in the billions. A bigger concern now is getting the city to approve a general plan amendment that would create a whole new zoning category in which Andersen's project could fit.
Andersen submitted the general plan change on Wednesday. Now the petition will go to the Planning Commission for a public hearing, then to the City Council for another public hearing. After the general plan is amended, the same process will follow for the zone change.
City planners say each process usually takes about six weeks.
Meanwhile, the public can view Gehry's model at the Lehi Hutchings Museum for the next three weeks and leave comments in a suggestion box. Andersen says he will also create a link on his Web site, gcodeventures.com, where people can send in their thoughts.
Lehi officials say they like what they are seeing.
"I thought things fit really well," City Councilman Mark Johnson said. "I never heard a negative comment about the design. It was certainly different than what I expected. I expected to see more curved and linear shapes ... but it is still a very unique design."
Andersen said Gehry took the idea for his design from some of Utah's beautiful places, such as the slot canyons in Zion's National Park. It also didn't hurt that Andersen pushed for an active, sports-related atmosphere that emphasizes some of Utah's favorite pastimes.
Keith Johnson, Deseret Morning NewsA rendering of the Frank Gehry-designed development that would include a variety of land uses. "I think when anyone who starts a community starts to envision what they're going to have in the community, some piece of them actually gets incorporated into that community," Andersen said. "What Frank has done, with our help, is a good representation of who we are and what we do."
Since Andersen has at times described his project as being a "gateway to Utah County," Utah Valley Convention and Visitor's Bureau CEO Joel Racker says this project could mean good things for the county.
"I think people will be hard-pressed to say, 'What's there to do in Utah County?'" Racker said. "I think there is a perception that there is not a lot to do in Utah County, which I think is totally false. We're different from other areas in the state, and we are who we are in a very positive way. Salt Lake has its unique things that it has. Utah County has its unique attractions. I think the world is going to wake up to Utah County, and I think it's going to be good."
