Central Metro, Daybreak - Upper Villages Announce "The Watercourse"

Since its inception and development Daybreak has become one of America's largest and most popular pre-planned communities. Pictured below is Oquirrh Lake(pronounced Oaker),
after the prominent Mountain Range on the western flank of the Central Metro Valley. The man-made Lake is a prominent feature of the Upper Villages

What's Next At Daybreak? Big Nature and More Water.


https://i.vimeocdn.com/video/7854531...00&mh=449&q=70

Development in the Upper Villages (Springhouse Village and Highland Park Village) have been going on at a breakneck pace for several years now, but until recently Daybreak had not announced its major features for the
developing Upper Villages. The Lower Villages have the popular Oquirrh Lake(Pronounced Oaker), and now it has been announced that the Upper Villages will have a spectacular feature called The Watercourse.

The Watercourse will be a long meandering network of water channels, cascades, and ponds, which will include a mile-long stretch of water, great for paddleboarding and kayaking
in the summer months.As well as the water-based activates The Watercourse will also allow for more waterfront property (always popular and in-demand), including some with private docks.

In addition to The Watercourse, they also announced something called The Cove. This will incorporate beaches, ponds, boat dock, playground and a covered pavilion (Cove House). There was also mention
of a place for concerts, so maybe this will be the new location for the Daybreak Summer Concert Series, which are currently held at SoDa Row, but will need to relocate in order to make room for more retail place.

We are probably a good 7 to 10 days out before the crane fully rises at least from what I can see from the webcam.

They sort projects into 4 categories: lease up, under construction, planned, and prospective developments.

Anyway, I thought I'd post it in case any of you were curious.

Updates, Central Metro East - Construction Ramps Up At The New Mayflower Ski Resort Development




Alexander Cramer for the Park Record - https://www.parkrecord.com/news/firm...in-next-month/

The developer behind the planned Mayflower Mountain Resort announced Thursday it was hiring a ski-industry veteran and former Vail Resorts executive vice president as a high-level ski consultant.

The move comes at a time when construction is ramping up at the site, with crews moving earth to grade roads, building a pedestrian tunnel and installing a million-gallon water tank.

Work on the project’s first hotel could begin as soon as next month, said Brooke Hontz, Extell Development Company’s vice president of development.


While the physical infrastructure is starting to take shape, how the ski resort will be operated remains unclear. The resort is planned on land adjacent to Deer Valley Resort, which is owned by Vail Resorts’ main competitor, Alterra Mountain Company. There is currently not an agreement for Deer Valley to operate the Mayflower terrain, however, despite a longstanding perception that the terrain would one day be a part of Deer Valley.

Hontz said hiring Chris Jarnot, a former Vail Resorts executive, is not an indication that Vail Resorts will operate Mayflower as opposed to Alterra, but rather that Extell is staffing up to tackle the enormous workload of starting a ski resort from the ground up.


“His expertise is probably unparalleled,” she added.

The Wasatch County Building Department has been weighing the building permit for the project’s first hotel since October, and Hontz said she hopes it will be granted by the end of this month.

That’s the project that would contain the U.S. Air Force Morale, Welfare and Recreation project, a bank of 100 hotel rooms in a 387-room, 643,000-square-foot hotel in the proposed resort base area.

In total, the resort is entitled to 1,560 residential units, another 800 in hotel rooms and suites and 250,000 square feet of commercial space. It has set aside 95,000 square feet for workforce housing and plans a 68,000-square-foot recreation center that would be open to the public.

Plans tentatively call for five ski lifts, two magic carpet conveyors and a potential connecting lift to Deer Valley...




Take a first look at the 5,600-acre Mayflower Mountain Resort

https://fox13now.com/2019/08/12/take...untain-resort/[/CENTER]

WASATCH COUNTY, Utah — We're getting our first look at a new massive mountain resort which will be located near the Jordanelle Reservoir. The Mayflower property which was purchased by Extell Development in November 2017 will be just over 5,600 acres with special accommodations for members of the military. Located just west of the Mayflower exit off of Highway 40, the Mayflower Mountain Resort will be a massive eastern portal of Deer Valley. “Just to put that in reference, it`s about 40% of Manhattan island, says Extel Development Senior Vice President, Kurt Kireg. It will be able to house more than 2,400 residents with new condos, single-family homes, townhomes, and three hotels. The first of which will be called the military hotel. “It`s 388 hotel rooms and 55 private residences. Little over 616,000 square feet, and it has substantial ballrooms. A little over 75,000 square feet of ballrooms,” says Kireg. Of those 388 rooms, 100 will be reserved for military members with a preferential rate based on rank. “The lower your rank, the lower the price,” says Kireg. All of this is made possible and in coordination with MIDA, the Military Installation Development Authority. “It comes from a special law that was passed by Congress to allow the Air Force to have a facility somewhere in a ski area and they selected this location,” says MIDA Executive Director, Paul Morris. The facility will give our service members the opportunity to enjoy the greatest snow on earth, while giving the state a welcomed economic boost. “You look at the taxes it will bring from a property standpoint to Wasatch County and the surrounding areas as well as having MIDA's oversight, it's just a phenomenal, win-win situation for everyone involved,” says Kireg. The military hotel and some of the ski lifts should be up and running by the 2021-2022 ski season.

Park City’s New Billion-Dollar Ski Resort

Everett Potter for Travel Magazine - https://www.forbes.com/sites/everett.../#5f2f9e197a72

There’s a new ski resort coming to the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. Or maybe, just maybe, Deer Valley is about to get a lot bigger.

It’s too soon to tell but what is known is that The Mayflower Mountain Resort has been announced, a 5,600 acre resort with somewhere around 900-plus skiable acres. The new slopes would be located on the backside of Deer Valley Resort, next to the gated Deer Crest subdivision. They would face the expansive Jordanelle Reservoir that lies outside of Deer Valley, with a hefty luxury commercial base area along U.S. 40.

Yes, it’s being touted as a new ski resort, but of scale and size that has not been seen in the United States since Beaver Creek opened in Colorado in 1980.

At this point, Mayflower’s developer, Extell Development Company, best known for Manhattan trophy real estate, is planning a development that includes three hotels, with at least one them of five star caliber, for a total of around 800 rooms. One hundred of those hotel rooms will offer reduced rates to military personnel, since the projected is being developed with the assistance of Utah’s Military Installation Development Authority (MIDA). The incentive for Extell for working with MIDA is that they’ll receive a portion of the property tax generated from development in exchange for those reduced fees for the military.

Then there’s the residential real estate: initially 55 condos, as well as townhomes, and single-family homes. In time, the resort will expand to more than 1,500 residential units.





Central Metro/East - Park City's Latest Addition, A Mountain of Potential and a New Portal to Deer Valley



New Utah resort master-plan envisioning and placemaking by OZ includes landmark conference hotel with world-class skiing and a unique military tie-in

If all goes according to plan, the Mayflower Mountain Resort in Utah’s Wasatch Range will mark two important milestones when it opens, as the first new full-service ski resort built from the ground, up, in the United States in more than three decades, and as the first resort for Air Force members and their families.

The planned Mayflower Mountain Resort, located along US Highway 40 near the Jordanelle Reservoir and iconic Deer Valley Resort outside Park City, is expected to open sometime in 2022, on a property anchored by a 388-room conference hotel designed by OZ Architecture, which also was involved in the envisioning, placemaking and master-planning of the resort. New York City-based EXTELL Development is developing the resort in partnership with the Military Installation Development Authority (MIDA).

Built near the site of the old Mayflower Mine, which until 1969 yielded gold, silver and lead, the 5,600-acre Mayflower Mountain resort will feature a day lodge, full skier services, condos, single-family homes, and townhomes (including workforce housing), plus a huge 60,000-foot recreation center, a range of retail, food and beverage options and other guest amenities, and three hotels, among them the MWR Hotel and Conference Center at Mayflower (MWR is military terminology for morale, welfare and recreation services).

“This is a once-in-a-career opportunity to be part of the initial envisioning, placemaking, master planning and execution of a ground-up resort in Utah. Since the 1980’s there have not been any new ski resorts built in the US,” said Rebecca Stone, Principal and Resort and Hospitality Leader at OZ Architecture. “It is also an opportunity to help the environment because the Mayflower Mine will be cleaned as part of the masterplan, and to give back to the Air Force families that do so much for our country. There are so many exciting layers to this development. We are very excited to be part of the team.”


The eight-story, 616,000-square-foot MWR at Mayflower includes special accommodations and a variety of features tailored specifically to armed forces personnel on R&R, including:

• a block of 100 rooms allocated to military members and discounted based on rank (the lower the rank, the lower the rate).

• a military-only concierge/lounge.

• discounts for military members and their families on lift tickets and activities, and

• design features and functionalities to provide a heightened level of accessibility and inclusiveness (accommodations for service animals, for example).

The amenity-rich MWR conference hotel also includes an inviting lobby to serve as the hotel’s living room, plus an outdoor pool, 50,000 sq. ft. of conference space, a fitness center, underground parking, a signature restaurant with outdoor dining, retail, a coffee shop, bar and kids’ area. For skiers, there’s a ski valet and ski lockers. Capping it all is a rooftop plaza (with views to the Jordanelle Reservoir) for special events, lounging and stargazing.

Designed in a “mountain modern” vein, the OZ concept for the conference hotel draws heavily from the mining history of the site and from the surrounding Wasatch landscape, incorporating a mix of materials, including metals and stone, with large expanses of glass to capture the views and natural light . A series of unique “mineral boxes” provides accents within some of the most vibrant areas of the hotel, and stone wraps the base of the building, grounding it to its mountainside setting. There’s also a wealth of outdoor space, including multiple terraces (with firepits) and lawn space to encourage gathering, and several hot tubs surrounding the outdoor pool.

As for skiing and other activities at the resort, the Mayflower Mountain Resort site is convenient — only about a 40-minute drive from Salt Lake City’s airport. EXTELL and Deer Valley ownership are still discussing how the new and existing ski areas would be linked, and whether Mayflower would ultimately function as a stand-alone resort or as another base area and de facto eastern portal for Deer Valley. Plans for the new resort call for a large ski beach and a base area with accommodations, restaurants, bars, retail shops and skier services, including rentals, lessons and daycare. But there will be plenty else to do at Mayflower beyond snow-riding, including ice skating, mountain biking, wildlife tours, and outdoor concerts.

It all comes together within a pedestrian-friendly community master-planned and envisioned by OZ Architecture Principals Rebecca Stone, Dan Miller and Andy White, in partnership with EXTELL and Langvardt Design Group out of Salt Lake City.

For military personnel, and for pretty much anyone seeking R&R or outdoor adventure, there will be no shortage of MWR — morale, welfare and recreation — at Mayflower Mountain Resort.

Update - Southern Metro - 1,000-acre park planned to enhance recreation around Utah Lake


Genelle Pugmire for The Daily Herald - https://www.heraldextra.com/news/loc...9430e47cd.html

A 1,000-acre public park and nature preserve along the Utah Lake shoreline between Provo, Orem and Vineyard will soon be a reality...“The project will further restoration of habitat for Ospreys, bald eagles and waterfowl species and provide additional public recreation amenities at Utah Lake,” said Eric Ellis, executive director of the Utah Lake Commission.

Doug Robins, assistant director of the Provo Parks and Recreation department, said the park project is a long time in the making and a great addition to outdoor recreation opportunities.

“This is great news,” Robins said. “From the Provo end the trail will cross the boundary on the north side of the Provo Delta Project and will connect with the Provo River trail. It will be terrific.”

...The project has plans to include: community fishing opportunities, 2.8 miles of trail that will span the Provo river Delta Restoration Project, bird towers for viewing bald eagles and other birds, picnic facilities, and more.

“The trail through the Walkara Way project will connect regional trail systems and will tie three counties together: Utah County, Salt Lake County and Weber County,” Ellis said. “Once it is connected to the completed Provo River Trail it could one day reach into Wasatch County as well (via the Jordan River trail).”

There are 27 public access points around Utah Lake for camping, boating, hunting, fishing and other water sports. Projects to restore and improve the lake as a public resource are moving forward every year, according to Ellis.

“We think the public will love what this project has to offer,” Ellis said. “In addition to making more land around the lake publicly accessible, it will benefit the habitat and wildlife and provide more opportunities for outdoor recreation and leisure.”...

...“This project will provide a critical 2.8-mile section of the trail along one of the prettiest wetlands and historic farming areas on Utah Lake,” Ellis said. “The segment will tie the Vineyard portion of the Lakeshore Trail with the Orem City Community Trail and then to the Orem UTA FrontRunner Station.”

Ellis added, “It will connect with the new pedestrian overpass at Utah Valley University and will provide relief in local commuter vehicular traffic to UVU.”...

Update, Central Metro East - Canyons Village workforce housing clears last major hurdle. Construction to begin this Spring.


Alexander Cramer for the Park Record - https://www.parkrecord.com/news/cany...-major-hurdle/

A major workforce housing project in Canyons Village looks like it’s going to be a reality after a governmental approval Jan. 31, the last significant legislative hurdle in a process that has seen constantly shifting targets and timelines in the 20 years since an initial agreement was signed between the county and the area’s management.

The Canyons Village Management Association plans to build housing for 1,153 workers in 169 units over 7.5 acres of county-owned land where Lower Village Road intersects White Pine Canyon Road, just west of S.R. 224 near the main entrance to Canyons Village.

The developer said the aim is to start building as soon as possible after the snow melts and anticipates a 24- to 26-month construction window that might mean workers could move in during the summer of 2022. The construction is required to be completed by the end of 2023.

County Council Chair Doug Clyde said the deal is “very significant” and that it is consistent with the county’s goals regarding workforce housing and traffic reduction due to its proximity to major transit.

Developer Tony Tyler, a partner at Columbus Pacific, called it a “game- changer” for the area and said it wouldn’t have been possible without using county-owned land...

Update, Central Metro East - Provo developer submits plans for long-contemplated major project at Park City Mountain Resort


Jay Hamburger for the Park Record - https://www.parkrecord.com/news/prov...oject-at-pcmr/

The Provo-based firm that intends to acquire the Park City Mountain Resort parking lots for a major development submitted an application to City Hall on Thursday outlining the ambitious plans to essentially remake the base area of one of the nation’s top-tier mountain resorts.

PEG Companies in the spring of 2019 reached an agreement with PCMR owner Vail Resorts to acquire the parking lots and the application that was submitted on Thursday was expected. The acquisition would not be finalized until after a City Hall decision regarding the project.

The firm outlined the 10-acre proposal in a prepared statement on Friday, saying a project would involve an unspecified number of condominiums as well as housing for employees and housing that is set aside as affordable. A hotel, retailers and restaurants are also included, the statement said.


The project would also involve the construction of garages for skiers and snowboarders, which would be needed to account for the loss of the current parking spaces in the lots that would be developed. A paid-parking system would be adopted in an effort to better manage traffic, the statement said.

Other highlights, as described in the release, include:


• a one-way traffic loop. The release does not provide details about the roads that would be impacted by a one-way route.

• bicycle lanes on Lowell Avenue and Empire Avenue

• sidewalks on nearby roads like Empire Avenue and Lowell Avenue

• plazas in the upper and lower sections of the project

• more than 70,000 square feet of housing that will be classified as employee or otherwise affordable

• a location for a National Ability Center building

• transit improvements on Lowell Avenue

“We have created a mix of creative residential, lodging, traffic and parking solutions to enhance the experience for everyone who enjoys this wonderful place to live and play,” Robert Schmidt, the chief development officer of PEG Companies, said in the prepared statement...

since Vail Resorts reached an agreement to sell the land to PEG Companies. The project will involve condominiums, a hotel, retailers and restaurants.

Salt Lake Crossing, a 300 micro-unit and studio rental building in the Hardware District, is being proposed by the area’s master developer, SALT Development. The Salt Lake Hardware project continues its bold rise between the North Temple Bridge Trax Light Rail/FrontRunner Commuter Rail stop and West High School. SALT’s 4th West, Hardware East and West buildings have added 906 units to the area so far. Three of its planned five buildings are completed and it’s preparing the fourth – with 300 micro and studio-units only...

...The Project

On 1.52 acres, it plans 300 units in a podium + five story building. Half of the units will be micro (228 sf) and half will be studios (470 sf). At 198 units per acre, it is an impressively dense development for the local market.

The new building, designed by local architects Method Studio, is proposing to “face the street” only on the south, one of the short sides of the structure. The south side of the building fronts 200 North and the Hardware West building (with Atlas mural)...

Downtown Update - The Newly Created 'Post District' Begins Site Demolition


Salt Lake City developers look to create the 'Post District': a 'West Downtown' neighborhood where one didn’t exist before

THE POST DISTRICT WILL INCLUDE HOUSING, OFFICE AND RETAIL ON 13 ACRES IN SALT LAKE CITY

There’s a good chance you don’t know where the Post District is.

Commuters headed out of Downtown for I-15 may glance at the big billboards as they breeze past 13 acres of vacant land and grey warehouses on their way onto or off of the interstate.

Most residents have little or no reason to hang out there. And, for all intents and purposes, the Post District doesn’t really exist at all today.

But a trio of developers is looking to take advantage of financing incentives in the 2017 federal tax bill to create what amounts to a new, master-planned neighborhood on the fringe of Downtown Salt Lake City.

“We’re primed to see something happen and see it happen fast,” said Brandon Blaser, a Utah native and one of the developers. “The money is in the bank.”The Post District will sit just southwest of Downtown Salt Lake City, on a site that includes vacant land, old warehouses and billboards.Video by Taylor Anderson.

Blaser has spent two decades out of state developing major projects across the country before he returned to Utah recently in time for what will be a frenzy of development along the Wasatch Front and particularly in this area.

The Post District is one of Utah’s opportunity zones, a state designation for “economically distressed areas” that offer massive long-term tax incentives for investors who finance development. Immediately south of the Post District is the Granary District, which offers double incentives as an opportunity zone and Salt Lake City RDA area.

The Post District gets its name from the Newspaper Agency Corp. building that sits at 400 West 500 South. The 13 acres that will be developed also crosses north over 500 South and includes historic buildings that will be renovated to keep their charm.

The district will include a combination of adaptive reuse and new buildings north and south of 500 South, with at least 500 multi-family residential units and 300,000 square feet of office and retail space, including restaurants and bars.



Residential units, Blaser said on a recent tour of the property, will span the spectrum from affordable micro-units to luxury penthouse-style homes.

The site is split between 300 West and 400 West by Gale Street, a narrow and apparently private through-way that will become the walkable focal point of the development.

While there was some confusion with the city over whether Gale Street is, indeed, private property, that designation would make it easier to close the street for events and street festivals and to do any other street experimentation that’s rare in Salt Lake City.

Gale Street will be developed as a woonerf, a type of people-first livable street with very low speeds. It will also allow cars, though, Blaser says, “cars will take a backseat” to people.

Through-ways will also connect to 300 West between the buildings, with more retail wrapped around three levels of parking on the northeast corner of the site south of 500 South. (See the map below).

During a recent tour and interview, Blaser stressed the development’s adaptive reuse, noting that five existing buildings on the site will be retrofitted, and no two buildings will be designed alike by different architects.

“You destroy the soul of a city when you knock down every building,” Blaser said, who added that the development will include space for artists who currently work in the area.

Because of the tax credits and designation of the area as an opportunity zone, the Post District — as well as the Granary District to the south — will likely be redeveloped rapidly over the next five years.

“When you’ve got the ability to control and master plan a big space like this, you’ve got an opportunity to move the needle,” Blaser said...

Tony Semerad, The Salt Lake Tribune - Developers plan to build a nearly 13-acre residential and commercial project along sections of the city’s main entry and exit from Interstate 15, on land located around 500 South and 600 South between 300 West and 400 West. To be known as the Post District, the development would replace or refurbish a half-dozen or so unsightly, graffiti-covered cinder-block buildings and a sea of cracked pavement covering nearly all the full city block known as the NAC lot, as well as the A&Z Produce building to its north with an adjoining parking lot and other parcels.The district is anticipated to add as many as 500 apartments and town homes, large office spaces, shops, new trees, a parking garage and a pedestrian-centered plaza to the city’s central business district, in phases constructed over the next three years or more.“The overall size and scale we have here will allow us to really create a neighborhood,” said Alex Lowe, a principal in Salt Lake City-based Lowe Property Group, one of four companies partnering in the project...Initial designs for the new district call for blocklong folds of trees and pleasing streetscapes along those high-visibility stretches of both 500 South and 600 South, including an open plaza and architecturally unique residential tower visible to vehicles coming off the highway. City and business leaders welcome that aspect of the development in particular...Planning standards for the district — which, according to city documents, is meant to welcome visitors on a grand scale — call for the use of midrise buildings, entrance monuments, iconic lighting and large street trees.



As it pushes Salt Lake City’s downtown core farther to the south and west, the Post District will focus heavily on adaptive reuse. The idea, developers said, is to give a new life to aging yet unique industrial buildings used for generations as transfer hubs for locally grown produce and huge rolls of newsprint..."This area is so ripe to finally turn and be changed and really add character to downtown, so it’s fun to be able to do it on such a big scale,” said Ben Lowe, brother to Alex Lowe and a fellow principal in Lowe Property Group.

Downtown Update - Creative way to cover ugly parking garage wall with public artwork.


The Pages of Salt installation is comprised of stainless steel rods and 336 Teflon flags that cover the entire north facade of the Walker Center parking garage. Artist Ned Kahn became fascinated with the site’s connection to the printing presses of both the Salt Lake Tribune and Deseret News, which were located on Regent Street for over 80 years. The images of hundreds of newspaper pages draped on conveyer belts echo the many identical swaying parts Kahn often utilizes in his wind sculptures. The artwork is intended to suggest a vertical cloud of newspapers swaying in the wind. Managed by the Salt Lake City’s Public Art Program and funded with $2.2 million from the Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City’s major reconstruction of Regent Street, Pages of Salt is the city’s largest investment in a single piece of public art to date. Based in Northern California, Kahn has created over 100 public works in the last 30 years, throughout the country and abroad.

Downtown Update - Massive Development Will Give Salt Lake City An Upscale Greektown


Tony Semerad, for the Salt Lake Tribune - https://www.sltrib.com/news/2020/02/...w-development/

Bringing life to dreams nurtured for more than two decades, members of Utah’s Greek Orthodox community are finalizing plans for a huge new development surrounding the Holy Trinity Cathedral in downtown Salt Lake City.

Documents soon to be submitted to City Hall envision creating an upscale campus around the 95-year-old cathedral at 279 S. 300 West, with elevated green plazas and public walkways, and an expanded cultural center for congregants of the Greek Orthodox Church of Greater Salt Lake.

The church’s yearly Greek Festival would get a larger and better-equipped home within the complex, capable of hosting more visitors.

...the project would also bring an ambitious commercial development to several church-owned parking lots on both sides of 300 West. Draft plans call for multistory office and apartment towers, a 1,000-stall underground parking garage, shops, restaurants and a 150-room hotel — to be built and managed in partnership with Utah-based developer Woodbury Corp.
“We’re excited, not only for the good that will come out of such a project for our parish and future generations of youth but for Salt Lake City and downtown as a whole,” said the Rev. Archimandrite George Nikas, presiding priest at Holy Trinity Cathedral...

...In their deal with Woodbury Corp., church members intend to put about $12 million toward building the new cultural center, then rely on a leasing partnership with the development firm to finance the rest of the project.
The project’s overall price tag is estimated at upward of $300 million.

Update, Southern Metro - Local executive discusses new airline- Breeze




Donna Barnes - Lehi Free - Presshttps://www.lehifreepress.com/2020/0...irline-breeze/


“Our mission is to operate out of smaller airports, with Provo being considered. We have ordered 60 Airbus 220 aircraft. These airplanes have the capacity to travel from Provo to Maui...


Lehi resident Danny Cox, Director of Guest Support and Insights at Breeze Airways, was interviewed by Lehi Free Press to describe the formation, mission, and vision of the new airline, headquartered in Salt Lake Metro's Cottonwood Heights, Utah.

Breeze Airways is the brainchild of David Neeleman, the founder of Azul airlines of Brazil, and JetBlue in the United States. According to Cox, “Neeleman is the most innovative figure in the airline business. He has started five airlines and is always thinking of new ways to improve transportation for the customer or guest.”... https://www.lehifreepress.com/2020/0...irline-breeze/

Southern Metro Update - BYU announces approval to construct new Music Building


Mount Timpanogos, typical of the beautiful mountain vistas from the BYU Campus

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...-_01-07-08.jpg

By Todd Hollingshead, February 20, 2020 - https://news.byu.edu/announcements/b...music-building

The Brigham Young University Board of Trustees has approved plans to construct a new Music Building for the College of Fine Arts and Communications. The building, which will be located at the south end of the parking lot east of the BYU Law School, will house the BYU School of Music’s performance and academic space.

“We are humbled and thrilled with the Board’s support of the College of Fine Arts and Communications,” said Ed Adams, Dean of the College of Fine Arts and Communications. “The Church has a long history of supporting music and the arts, and this new building will expand upon the university’s commitment to producing inspiring and uplifting art.”

The 170,000-square-foot Music Building will have four levels and feature more mid-sized spaces for practice and recitals, including practice rooms located on the upper floor. The cornerstone of the new building will be a 1000-seat concert hall built in the vineyard style. Vineyard style performance spaces are intended to keep musicians centralized, with audience seating rising above them in tiers — reminiscent of a terraced vineyard.

“While this spatial approach was primarily developed with optimal acoustics and line of sight in mind, BYU’s concert hall will also serve a distinct pedagogical purpose, as it will allow students and patrons alike to have a clear view of performer technique,” Adams said. “The venue will be the first of its kind in the Intermountain West, marking a significant achievement in musical innovation and excellence in the region.”

Construction is scheduled to begin by late spring 2020 and is expected to be completed by Fall Semester 2022. Big D Construction has been selected as the general contractor for the project, with HKS Architects as the architecture firm.

The College of Fine Arts and Communications has long been an integral part of BYU. The School of Music was one of the original four departments when the university opened doors, and the Harris Fine Arts Center is the most-used academic building on campus, presenting more than 500 performances a year.

The Harris Fine Arts Center was dedicated in 1965 and currently houses four of the college’s six academic units (Art, Design, Music, Theatre & Media Arts), as well as offices for college administration and Arts Production.

Southern Metro Update - Utah Valley University begins fundraising for $88 million engineering building

Booming new engineering programs are causing a priority shakeup at Utah Valley University.

The university’s need for an engineering building has eclipsed other upcoming projects, leading to UVU kickstarting the fundraising process for an upcoming $88 million facility.

“When you look at most of these companies that are coming, they are engineering intensive,” said Val Peterson, vice president of finance and administration at UVU.

The UVU Board of Trustees approved the addition of three new engineering degrees about two years ago. Programs for Bachelor of Science degrees in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and civil engineering began in fall 2018.

Peterson said there’s about 800 students enrolling in the programs, with the expectation that it will grow to 2,000 students. UVU anticipates seeing engineering students who transferred from other institutions graduate from the Orem university this academic year.

Those graduates will enter into a waiting job market. There are 880 annual openings statewide for engineers and engineering technician occupations, according to UVU’s state-funded capital facilities request for the building.

Students in the UVU College of Engineering and Technology are currently educated in the Computer Science Building, which was completed in 2001 when the university had about 20,000 students enrolled. The UVU College of Engineering and Technology had 4,874 students, as of fall 2018.

UVU as a whole has about 40,000 students and is projected to have more than 55,000 students by 2028.

The engineering building would be constructed on a grassy area east of the Computer Science Building. When complete, it will be 162,500 square feet and include 31 labs, 12 classrooms, 21 study areas and 91 offices, among other spaces.

UVU has obtained approval to begin the design process for the building but it will not be funded by the Utah state legislature during its next session. The building ranked fourth on the list of facility priorities forwarded to the state from the Utah State Board of Regents, which recommends three projects every year for the legislature to consider funding.

In the meantime, the university will begin fundraising for the building. UVU typically has to privately raise funds for a portion of a building project before it obtains state funding. Its business building, which began construction in the fall, received $50 million from the state after UVU privately raised about $20 million.

“I am confident we will be successful for what we need to raise,” said Scott Cooksey, the vice president of institutional advancement at UVU.

Donated funds haven’t been committed to the program yet. Fundraising is expected to take a year or two.

“There’s a lot of interest in it, not because it is a building, but because of what the building is going to do,” Cooksey said.

Peterson said companies are approaching UVU looking for engineers to hire. But with an ever-growing university, there isn’t enough space to educate students.

The building proposal, Peterson said, is an example of how UVU is responding to local industry needs.

The university planned to construct a new building for its education program following the new business facility. Peterson said plans for the education building have been shifted to make room for the proposed engineering project and a health professions building. UVU now plans to construct an education building following those two projects.

“The demand for health care services is increasing, so in order to meet that need we see a health professions building is going to be a key demand item in that scenario,” Peterson said.

Update, Utah Valley University - Upcoming New Woodbury School of Business


Marjorie Cortez - The Deseret News - https://www.deseret.com/utah/2019/11...ol-of-business

Ground has been broken on the Scott C. Keller Building, which will be the new home of Utah Valley University’s Woodbury School of Business.

The $75 million, 180,000-square-foot building will house 30 classrooms and 205 offices as well as the Bloomberg Lab, Entrepreneurship Institute, Money Management Resource Center, SmartLab and grand auditorium for large lecture audiences and special events. Construction is estimated to be completed by late fall 2021 or early 2022.

The building will feature a Student Success Center on its second floor, which will combine placement, tutoring, internships and advisement services in one accessible location.

Classrooms will be outfitted with lecture-capture technology to help students learn remotely. The building will be constructed on the south end of UVU’s Orem campus...The new building is expected to serve up to 12,000 business students at a time.

According to Utah State Board of Regents documents, the business school has outgrown its current home, which was one of the four original Utah Technical College buildings built in 1979.

“While the 78,000-square-foot facility has been well-maintained over the years, it cannot accommodate the renovations desired to train future business leaders. The masonry building has a post-tensioned cable floor system that cannot be penetrated to run cables or make infrastructure upgrades,” the document states...

Central Metro - Salt Lake County Opts For 100% Renewable Electricity

By Betsy Lillian - https://solarindustrymag.com/salt-la...le-electricity


https://solarindustrymag.com/wp-cont...86_960_720.jpg

Utah’s Salt Lake County Council has passed a resolution establishing a goal of powering the county with 100% clean, renewable electricity by 2030.

The resolution requires local utility Rocky Mountain Power (RMP) to replace fossil fuel generation with renewable energy resources to meet the new commitment, explains the Sierra Club. In 2020, RMP will have to issue a filing with the
Public Service Commission, conduct a yearlong demand study and begin the process of setting new electricity rates for participating customers.

Salt Lake County joins Salt Lake City, Park City, Moab, Cottonwood Heights, Holladay, Oakley and Summit County as the eighth Utah community committed to achieving 100% renewable electricity by 2030, in compliance with H.B.411,
according to the Sierra Club.

Under H.B.411 (the Community Renewable Energy Act), signed by Utah’s Gov. Gary Herbert earlier this year, Salt Lake County and the other municipalities and counties that commit to 100% renewable energy are protected from the cost
to continue operating RMP’s “increasingly expensive” coal fleet past 2030, says the Sierra Club. Per the legislation, the deadline for cities and counties to join the program is Dec. 31, 2019.

“The Community Renewable Energy Act is not simply a made-in-good-faith 100 percent renewable energy goal; it is an actionable plan to bring participating Utah communities to the clean energy future,” says Lindsay Beebe of the Utah
Sierra Club. “What’s more is that the bill is first-of-its-kind legislation that can be used as a blueprint in other states to encourage utilities to partner with communities to power themselves with 100 percent renewable energy.”
