222 S Main

222 S Main is Salt Lake's premier office space.  A brand new high-rise in downtown Salt Lake City.  It is located right on Main Street.  Right next ot a TRAX stop and the Gallivan Center.  Downtown continues to get more and more exciting with everything happening.  The great thing is that this building is almost full and the need is coming for another tower downtown.  I can't wait as I know that Hamilton Partners has plans for another one on the corner of 100 South and Main.  Hamilton Partners did such a great job with 222 S Main that it makes me very excited to see what they do with the one a block up.  Maybe it could be called 111 S Main????

I'm Back

Well, I'm back to blogging about Salt Lake.  I don't know why I stopped for a year.  Anyway, a lot is happening with the new Courthouse, the many apartments, condos, office, etc going in downtown, most who have not been around for a while would have a tough time recognizing the place.  That brings me to this photo I took on Main Street a few months back.  In the photo, everything from the Montgomery Ward and to the south (right) of it are slated for demolition.  This would also take out the Prudential Building which people either really like or really hate.  The Prudential is the one with the spires on top of it.  The Montgomery Ward building is the red brick one.  Future plans call for a 20-25 story office tower where the Montgomery Ward building is and then from the Prudential building and the little one's next to it a "Broadway Style" theater that would seat about 2,400.  The theater is sorely needed in this city as Capitol Theater just can't support the shows or the numbers of people that want to see the shows anymore.  I imagine that in the next couple of years this block should look drastically different.
