I don't have a photo, but I can confirm that they are definitely doing foundation work now. There's a giant pit in the ground and the site is active. I wouldn't be surprised to see a tower crane pop up fairly soon.

I also found some new renderings of Phase I:

Downtown Update, Block 67 Development Timeline Update Through August 28th


By Tony Semerad, The Salt Lake Tribunehttps://www.sltrib.com/news/2019/12/...city-approves/

Salt Lake City has approved a way to pump $15 million into building a huge subterranean parking garage for Block 67, an upcoming ambitious residential and hotel project on the western edge of the city’s downtown.

The agreement, backed Tuesday by the City Council in its role overseeing the city’s Redevelopment Agency (RDA), clears a major hurdle for what is to be known as The West Quarter, a 6.45-acre development bounded by
100 South and 200 South from 200 West to 300 West.



(Rendering by The Ritchie Group) A rendering of The Ritchie Group's proposed Block 67 development in Salt Lake City, as though looking north along 300 West...



Developers with Salt Lake City-based The Ritchie Group and Garn Development Co. in Layton plan to build more than 650 dwellings, two hotels, an office tower, retail shops, a tree-lined street cut through the block and an underground
parking garage with more than 1,200 stalls.


With its four towers and extensive amenities, to be built in two phases, The West Quarter project will push the center of the city’s urban core west, with more robust pedestrian connections between the existing downtown and The Gateway and
Vivint Smart Home Arena farther west.

“It really is a good project,” Councilman Charlie Luke said Tuesday. “It really is going to do a lot for the city and especially for that part of the city in terms of redevelopment."...

...Ryan Ritchie, a principal in The Ritchie Group, has said the underground parking garage is integral to the project’s overall financial success...The loan agreement sets up a legal mechanism for the city to give the developers the $15 million in
money for the parking garage, then lets the developers pay it back over time as their project generates additional tax money. Salt Lake City’s RDA will, in turn, pass those payments back to the county...

I can't wait for the 2 CCH cranes to also go up. 6 tower cranes up and working From State Street to 3rd West and South Temple to 2nd South.

My wife did point out to me today as we drove around downtown that there are many work trucks from out of state license plats at the various projects. I thought that this was nice in that we are pulling workers from other states for our projects.

Updated Design of Hotel Portion of Phase I


Quote:
Originally Posted by Atlas View Post
The next planning commission meeting will discuss proposed changes to the West Quarter development. Most of it seems to be related to the appearance of the hotel portion of the project. Details and renderings (more in the document linked above):
Quote:
The West Quarter project challenges the typical 10‐acre Salt Lake City block by proposing a development centered around a new through mid‐block street, resting on a below grade parking garage. The midblock
street will break down the large block scale and provide a pedestrian connection between the Downtown on 200 South and Gateway District on 300 West. The mid‐block street will be lined with retail on both sides creating an active urban environment that is focused more on pedestrian activity
while reducing vehicular traffic.

Due to the large size of our city blocks, the existing grade of our streets and sidewalks changes deceivingly across the block frontage as well as from one block to another. The existing grade along 300 West block changes by approximately 10’‐0”, approximately half of which takes place across the project frontage. Similarly, the grade continues to change along 200 South block frontage and 200 West creating three different elevations that the mid‐street and the service alley will connect and reconcile. From that perspective the project needed to prioritize the grade elevations and their transition to maximize accessibility and street activation without making modifications to the existing streets.

300 West is a State road operated by the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) and is subject to UDOT regulations. The existing street elevation along 300 West (between the new mid‐block street and entrance to the hotel port cochere) varies between 4272.96 at the south end and 4276.30 at the north end. The hotel ground level elevation has been set at 4278 to maximize accessibility and engagement with the new mid‐block street. The grade changes and complex relationship between the existing and new mid‐block street required the design of the 300 West frontage to be reevaluated subsequently to the Planning Commission approval.
And it turns out SLC will have at least one rooftop dining and drinking experience soon! I still hope to see something higher and closer to Main Street eventually. This one seems to have a mostly northwestern-facing orientation too, so the views of downtown and the Wasatch won't be dominant.


Quote:
The current design maintains a rooftop bar along 300 West that will contribute to street and skyline activation in accordance with the city design standards and approved design. The refined building massing creates a distinct rooftop element articulated with recessed glazing, expressed columns and a continuous architectural roofline. The roofline terminates at the northwest corner of the building with a long and dramatic cantilever that, along with the glass volume below, announces the entrance to the
development. The distinct roofline will be illuminated with continuous, linear fixtures to maintain its presence and distinct expression on the night skyline while the wood clad soffit will diffuse the lighting
and create a floating effect.

In addition to the rooftop bar, that will activate the northwest corner and create a strong connection with the Vivint Smart Home Arena, the current design will provide street and skyline activation at the opposite southeast corner of the hotel. An outdoor pool deck, with views of the downtown skyline and mountains, will create additional active uses along the future extension of the mid‐block street. In addition to enhancing and connecting the second project phase, the pool deck will be visible and create a strong connection with 200 South.

Nice to see some density and height spreading to the periphery of the downtown core. SLC is on fire!

Here's a view of this project that I had never seen before. It's from an online listing for the retail spaces in Phase I. A PDF with higher res versions of these is available there. Looks like they are planning on Phase II opening by summer 2024.

In the online listing advertisement Atlas had posted, it states they plan on a Summer 2024 opening of Phase II, indicating they likely would have to start construction this year for a project that large. I hadn't thought they would start until Phase I was complete, so I didn't think Summer 2024 was doable.

However, with the news the post office will be leaving soon, they may indeed be planning to move ahead this year after all.
"RWP" is the Royal Wood Plaza, which is the building that currently occupies the site of Phase II.

My count of the floors (above podium) in the old rendering for the Block D North residential building is 15, which is what the geotechnical study indicated.

My count of the floors (above podium) in the old rendering for Block D South SE office tower is 15, which is also in line with the lower end of what the geotechnical study indicated.

My count of the floors (above podium) in the old rendering fro Block D South SW hotel tower is 13, which is less than half as many floors as what the geotechnical study indicated for the now proposed residential tower.

So the Southwestern Block D tower being switched from a hotel to residential and becoming much taller (13 above podium to 28-30) appears to my eye to be the main change from the original plan to the 'current' one.

At least that is how it seems to me.

Phase I is nearing completion now and it's been confirmed that tenants have left the Royal Wood Plaza (to be demolished for Phase II). Today we got some new renderings of Phase II and it's a massive improvement!

The West Quarter - Phase II Takes On New and Exciting Design Upgrades

From the original plan, I think they were looking to have RWP clearing out in early 2022. With it happening around May 2021, this could mean that the overall timing has sped up.

I do think it would be nice to have 3+ major projects undergoing excavation at the same time. It is this that probably lead to the speed up of Phase 2. This will allow the current workers to shift from Phase 1 to Phase 2.

I do wonder how many towers we will see continue above the Phase 2 podium. Will we see all 3 towers, just the Residential and Hotel, or just the Residential. Pre-Covid, the plan was for the Residential and the Hotel to go up immediately and the Commercial tower to be added once demand was there. Does anyone know if this is still the plan or if we may see all 3 towers rise simultaneously?

Right now, SLC doesn't have any towers that are more than a block or so from Main Street...


New renderings for West Quarter’s Phase 2 show impressive architectural and mixed-use ambition - Luke Garrott Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/new...-use-ambition/

Quote:
Luke Garrott - One of the worst holes in Downtown’s urban fabric will be getting filled by the second phase of the West Quarter project, whose Phase 1, along with the Salt Palace convention center hotel a block away, is sprouting a downtown skyline west of Main Street.

New renderings of the structures are out, and they are dramatic.

The 4.36 acres of Phase 2 of the West Quarter will front on 200 South, currently a dead zone of surface parking for the Royal Wood office complex at 230 West 200 South.

The project will offer 846 new residential dwellings in three buildings, the tallest of which will be 28 stories.

It also includes a 16-story office building (408,000 sf), as well as over 50,000 sf of ground-floor retail space. A 161-room hotel will be included in the 14-story residential building.

Parking will be provided in two structures, totaling 1535 stalls...Here are the new images, courtesy of Legend Partners, the project’s leasing agent.
