A couple pictures I took this morning:

650 S Main:


Will there be a tower crane erected on this site at some point?

95 State's core seems to be topped out. I think the roof structure will add another ~38.5 ft on top of that.





Also, I was looking through loopnet and saw these interesting parcels for sale among others:That Sizzler site in particular is a prime spot and could be turned into something really fantastic with the right vision and developer. Here's a fun idea: a mixed-use building with rooftop amphitheater facing the Wasatch (like this one in Denver). In any case, I hope we get something nice architecturally that takes advantage of the corner and not another suburban CVS.

I wish we had a developer with an ego or a local company that wanted to move their HQ to SLC, that also is lead by someone with an ego.

The Motel 6 lot would be the spot for someone with a big ego. The site is D1 zoned. With direct highway access from 6th South, 5th South and West Temple, Trax is just over 2 blocks away but will be closer once the new station is added near 650S Main. Additionally, the outer Trax loop and 4th South extension will put Trax within 2 blocks on all 4 sides.

A building here, even if only at 375', would stick out in the skyline. With the built environment around it, this would be an egotists dream location for a large project that would stand out of the crowd.

Also, on the 200S 200E site. The block 200 project is dead. I heard that there was at least 1 developer that was very interested in the location for a tall building. The owner is separating the surface lot just north of this from the sale, so it would just be the building itself.

I don't know more about the building, it was something I overheard from some others. I don't have information on what they would consider tall either. So consider it just a rumor at this point.

No doubt, this will be a handsome tower from street level. I agree that it won't break any glass ceilings for height as viewed from a distance, but it will definitely make an impact from several angles. For example, from the northwest, it will fit nicely in between Key Bank and 111. I'm excited to see it with a lot more of the glass. The patina of the glass and the curvature is very attractive.

For future reference to those lurkers who might actually be in a position to add to Salt Lake's Skyline. IMO, this tower presented an excellent opportunity for a little mixed-use at the top. The Salt Lake market is extremely hungry for upscale highrise residential leasing. It would have been very attractive if they had added an additional 10 stories of luxury residential rental. The top ten floors would be set back in circumference from the base.

- The smaller top would mimic the base design but especially help to balance the broad girth of the base both from a height perspective and a circumference perspective.

- Of course, the added height would not be cheap, but who can argue that in Salt Lake's market there would not be plenty of high-end clientele to lease out a conservative 10 floors. Not to mention that a modest number of units set aside for the corporate occupants would come in very handy in accommodating their executive visitors.

- The location of this tower is superb. Steps from CCC and Harmon's not to mention the residential views of the Wasatch would be nothing short of jaw-dropping.

- Of course, there's a long list of emotional reasons why this tower should have been taller but bottom line it would just have made a lot of good business sense. Whatever speculation it would have been on Property Reserves part to build the taller residential addition it would have been a minuscule drop in their portfolios financial bucket when considering the return on the towers superb location. No doubt, the moderate number of units, and their excellent advantages would have been scooped up by the public very quickly if not before construction completion.

I do remember that from the City Creek Center plans back in late 2006, it was proposed to be a mixed-use tower of about 35 stories.

However, the main reason why they kept it under 400 feet, from my understanding, is that they wanted to keep it within the city's zoning height and design limits. The City wants to have the taller towers on the blocks between Main and State and then taper down to the east from State and to the west from Main. The city listened to R/UDAT back in the late 80's who recommended to curtail highrise expansion to the east of the CBD. There were a number of commercial office highrises that popped up to the east of the CBD, and they were advocating for more mid-rise and low-rise residential as you get further away from the CBD.

The existing structure will be difficult and costly to demo. As a result, that parcel should sell at a discount for a D-1 corner.

I like 95 State but I agree that it would have been cool to see a mixed-use tower in that spot. Come to think of it, I don't think we really have one in SLC yet.

Block 67 Phase II or the new 370 South West Temple proposal might be the first.

Regarding the Sizzler site, I wish the City would buy that and just add that to the existing park and add a nice new entrance & sign from that intersection. It's just weird to have some development on that corner surrounded by the park.

Just browsing on Loopnet:

It looks like the Six96 Building (696 S West Temple) is up for auction. So if anyone has $5,000,000...

https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/669-...y-UT/18420046/

What's more interesting is that 7 acres of land in the Granary district are under contract between 700 and 800 south.

That would be nice too but it seems even less likely than my zany idea.

Here's another fun idea: build a 3-4 story mixed-use building and have the roof on park-facing south and east sides be continuous with the hill. The street-facing north and west sides could look more conventional. Of course, this wouldn't really take advantage of that killer view of the mountains.

I don't see any reason why we couldn't do both. Have a restaurant with rooftop seating facing towards the mountains, and a new entrance next to it. The lot is certainly large enough.
