Representatives of Downtown Salt Lake development, construction, and business recently held a Media Roundtable at the beautifully remodeled O.C. Tanner building, former home of the Hansen Planetarium.
Their message? The massive retail, residential and office projects taking shape Downtown are boosting the city's economy - with more than 1.5 million dollars a day being poured into materials and wages - and construction progress is both significant and evident!
One major project, in fact, has just been completed, in time for the Holidays. 222 Main, a state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly, 22-story office tower, received its Certificate of Occupancy from City building officials on November 2nd, and the grand opening was held on December 3rd.
The building's huge Main Street display windows are decorated in three "traditional Christmas" scenes, and were illuminated in conjunction with the annual Lights On! event, lighting downtown in festive decorations.
