Sigh. Another movie megaplex monument of shitty stucco bright ass architecture conspicuously built along the main corridor to remind everyone who owns this effing state. I guess that's what happens when you have unlimited resources to keep building even when demand for your product is diminishing. Must keep the drones left anxiously engaged thinking the work is rolling forth. I'll also bet there is a shitty suburban real estate development attached to this as that is the recent MO.

There isn't very much open land left in that area, but I get what you're saying.

Keep your anti-mormon attitude off of this forum! And, keep your super negative tone off of this as well.

Peery's Egyptian Theater gets new sign, first step in large-scale renovation there






OGDEN — A milestone has been reached in a large-scale renovation of one of Ogden’s most historic and recognizable buildings, but officials say there’s still plenty of work yet to be finished.
Earlier this week, crews installed a new exterior entrance marquee at Peery’s Egyptian Theater, 2415 Washington Blvd. The 24-foot vertical blade sign matches the sign that was on the building in the late 1920s and early 1930s.
The sign is part of an ambitious plan being executed by the Egyptian Theatre Foundation — a complete modernization of the 95-year-old community theater.



For some reason, the picture and link to the article aren't posting/working? Anybody else experiencing this? Anyways, you can google it. It's at standard.net/new/business

That's fantastic I love all the neon in Ogden. Best historic downtown district, affordable, and a great sense of community. I hope this blade sign is turned on for the first Friday Art Walk. Going to be in Otown this Friday.

New hotel/condo building for Powder Mountain

The Ogden Valley Planning Commission recently approved a 5-story property at Summit Powder Mountain Resort to include a 47-room Selina branded hotel and 52 condominium units. No renderings were included in the news article or the board meeting packet.

Quote:
In other action Tuesday, the planning commission approved the design review application for the proposed Powder Mountain hotel, to be developed by Greenline Capital as part of the Selina chain of hotels, hostels and co-working spaces. The five-story structure, sitting on about a half-acre of land, would house 47 hotel rooms and 52 condominium units and feature a “Scandinavian look,” according to Rory Murphy, presenting the proposal to the commission on Tuesday on behalf of Greenline and Powder Mountain.

He described it as a “destination hotel” that would be a “significant tax generator” for Weber County. The facility would create 51 jobs.

“Perhaps most importantly, it provides vitality and vibrancy to the entire resort area and really begins to anchor a village core that should be a significant economic development area for Weber County for years to come,” reads the application for the hotel. Boosters envision the hotel, the application continues, as “a source of community energy and a gathering space that helps to propel the Village and the mountain in general forward in a positive and fiscally responsible manner.”

Thanks for the info. The documents showing the building are not very clear, though. I wonder if we can get a rendering of it somewhere.

Here are some other buildings designed for Powder Mountain.

Developer seeking incentives to build new hotel in downtown Ogden

https://www.standard.net/news/local/...af42fada8.html



OGDEN — A local developer is seeking nearly $1.8 million in tax incentives to bolster a project that would bring a new hotel to downtown Ogden.

Ogden City’s Redevelopment Agency board, (which is made up of the seven members of the city council) is mulling a proposed “Participation and Incentive Agreement” with Garn Development Company, LLC. The agreement would authorize $1.77 million in tax increment incentives to offset costs associated with building a Hilton TRU/Home2 Suites hotel near the southwest corner of Lincoln Avenue and 24th Street.

The hotel would have approximately 150 rooms, according the Ogden Deputy Director of Community and Economic Development Brandon Cooper, and an existing building and parking lot at the location would have to be demolished prior to construction.

Under the agreement, Garn would receive 11 annual tax increment payments from the city, from 2022 to 2032, not to exceed the $1.77 million threshold.

Tax Increment Financing involves freezing tax valuations on a property for a specified time period, then using future increases in property tax revenue for redevelopment. The money is often offered to developers as an incentive to build and it can be used for things like street and utility improvements, hazardous waste removal, property acquisition and the demolition of blighted buildings.

As part of the deal, the hotel would have to be substantially complete by June 30, 2021.

Cooper said the new hotel rooms are needed in the Ogden marketplace and the project likely wouldn’t be feasible without the incentive agreement. Cooper said in many cases, high costs associated with demolition, environmental remediation and the construction itself, limit the possibility of strictly private market development in Ogden.

“The only two ways that really make a project work is having a reduced land costs, or higher rents,” he said. “In our case, we don’t have land that is that much cheaper than other areas and we don’t have rents that are that much higher than other area. We’re really stuck in that quandary of projects being infeasible to get constructed unless there is some public participation.”

The proposed hotel site is inside the city’s Kiesel Community Development Area. The CDA, which encompasses approximately 39 acres between Kiesel and Wall avenues from 24th Street to 25th Street, was approved by the RDA board in 2015. The CDA creation authorizes up to $10.4 million in TIF money to be used for redevelopment in the area.

The principal of the Garn development company is Kevin Garn, a Layton resident and former Republican majority leader of the Utah House of Representatives. On financial disclosure reports, Garn was listed as a donor to the reelection campaign of Ogden Mayor Mike Caldwell. Garn donated $1,000 to the campaign.

Any information about the new Lagoon roller coaster? Another signature coaster at Lagoon would be great in terms of boosting its profile.

Here's the most recent article (a video) from September that I've seen. Looks like we're in for a long wait. Lagoon isn't saying much and the ride isn't expected to open until 2021 or 2022.

Old, troublesome motel in downtown Ogden finally coming down

Quote:
Acquiring and razing the motel will allow the city to develop a public square that would act as a transition space for pedestrians moving between the Weber County Library area and downtown.

Architectural Digest -
Powder Mountain Is the Hottest Design Destination You Probably Haven't Heard Of


This hidden gem of a ski resort in Utah is fast becoming a progressive alpine mecca

Architectural Digest - By Meaghan O'Neill - https://www.architecturaldigest.com/...owder-mountain

Just an hour north of Salt Lake City, Powder Mountain is a hidden gem among Utah's more famous ski resorts. At 10,000 acres, it's one of our nation's largest ski areas, and now the mountain's newest owners—a group of young tech entrepreneurs—have begun construction on a contemporary alpine village that's attracting big money and bold-face names (think Richard Branson and Tim Ferriss). With buildings by acclaimed architects like Marmol Radziner, Olson Kundig, and MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects, the Summit Powder Mountain village promises sprawling views of the Great Salt Lake and a stunning organic modern aesthetic.

Die-hard skiers have been enjoying Powder Mountain's exceptional terrain for decades, but the new village, which is expected to be operational by 2022, aims to attract a year-round community of thought leaders—from artists and activists to scientists—who will rub elbows at yoga studios and juice bars in a Burning-Man-meets-Davos type of atmosphere. To help build this kind of place, designers are held to strict guidelines that aim to thwart overdevelopment. For example, houses must remain under 4,500 square feet (an additional 1,000 square feet of living space is allowed underground), prioritize natural materials, and be energy efficient. In all, 500 mountain homes will be built, clustered around a village center with restaurants, spas, a hotel, shops, and public art—all easily accessed by ski lift, hiking, and mountain biking trails.

“All of our design guidelines were developed to not disrupt the soil,” says Brian Williams, director of real estate for Powder Mountain. Approximately 2,600 acres were earmarked for development; of that, several will be granted to a local land trust as preserved space that will be open to the public.

“While the value of mountain homes typically relies solely on sheer scale, [we] are working to provide a new standard for the valuation of homes,” says Anne Mooney, principal architect at Sparano + Mooney Architecture, which has provided site analysis as well as a conceptual design for a net-zero energy lodge, no easy task in Utah's harsh winters. To create that kind of shift, Summit—and the people who will call it home—must place worth on quality, sustainability, and durability, says Mooney, whose firm has an office in Salt Lake City.


Twenty-six modern cabins, an event center, and a lodge will make up the Horizon neighborhood, which was designed by MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects. Clad in cedar siding, the buildings are reminiscent of local barns. Rendering by MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects

City to sell historic downtown ice cream building, hoping to jumpstart redevelopment of municipal block

https://www.standard.net/news/local/...9b9a4cc91.html





OGDEN — Gearing up for what is to be a multimillion dollar facelift of a six-block section of downtown, Ogden City is looking to sell the only remaining piece of the old Hostess/Wonder Bread factory.

The Ogden City Council will soon consider a real estate purchase contract that involves the city selling the Historic Brown Ice Cream building to Ogden businessman Dan McEntee. Ogden Deputy Director of Community and Economic Development Brandon Cooper said the city wants to sell the 2557 Grant Ave. property to McEntee for $100,000.

The building, which sits on 0.137 acres immediately west of the Ogden Justice Court, was estimated by appraisers to be worth about $322,000, but the structure also includes some $226,000 worth of needed repair work and deferred maintenance.

As part of the contract, McEntee — who is an owner of Rooster’s B Street Brewery, the Angry Goat Pub & Kitchen and The McEntee Group Consulting — must obtain a certificate of occupancy within two years of the sale closing and have the building placed on the Historic Register.

Ogden City purchased the entire Wonder Bread site at 26th and Grant Avenue for $2.4 million in 2016. During that transaction, the Ogden Redevelopment Agency board (which is made up of the seven members of the City Council) specified that the Brown building must remain intact, despite the rest of the facility being tabbed for demolition.

McEntee wants to use the Brown building for office space and a new restaurant.

The project would represent phase one of the redevelopment plan for the old factory site and figures to be a centerpiece in the city’s proposed “Continental Community Reinvestment Area,” a redevelopment district that includes portions of six blocks between 25th and 27th streets, from Washington Boulevard to Wall Avenue.

The city administration says the area is in need of major improvement, beyond what can be provided by the private sector. The CRA designation would allow the city to use tax increment financing (which funnels new tax revenue back to projects in the area) to help fund a host of redevelopment items — vacant building removal, the development of new housing units, public infrastructure improvements, the renovation of existing buildings and more.

According to city council documents, the old Wonder Bread/Hostess factory, the Weber County Jail, the Ogden Justice Court and the Salvation Army, Bank of Utah and American Linen buildings are listed as potential redevelopment sites.

Other key projects associated with the CRA include the construction of new attached single-family and multi-family units, consolidation of parking and the redevelopment of portions of the municipal block. Project expenditures for the CRA could total as much as $236.2 million.
