I went ahead and put all the parking on the block below-grade, and opened up the block with a new North - South street. It's crazy how much additional things you can throw in there and still have it feel more open than before by just getting rid of the above-grade parking ramps. Like the Presiding Bishop said when presenting the plans for City Creek Center: "There's NOTHING vibrant about parking."

You didn’t spell “pandemic” correctly. It’s scamdemic. Fixed it there for you, pal.

I mean, I get it dude. You can't defend your position because it's not defendable with anything logical, rational, or truthful. You went down the rabbit hole of conspiracy theory one day and you haven't been able to find your way back out. Hopefully you get back on track. I do agree though, we should get back on the topic of development.

Nice try, but no. Just common sense and knowledge has proven it’s in fact a scamdemic. Let’s get back on topic. You’re embarrassing yourself at this point.

Worth mentioning in this thread too: apparently the city wants to extend the S-Line east into the business district of Sugar House. They are receiving $12 million from the state (part of yesterday's transit bill) to start that process.

In other news, FrontRunner is getting $200 million from the state this year for double tracking.

Awesome plans old and new! I have long day dreamed of city creek being extended through that whole block and continuing the walkways. Sadly the new tower will have above ground parking but hopefully the big staircase and park on top makes it less of an eyesore. Also I doubt we will salvage the theater, but this kinda style would be a perfect blueprint for how they should move forward with the block. Lastly, Waimea chill bruh you are giving a bad name to Aina and the beautiful Waimea Bay. Or Waimea on the Big Island, which ever one you are referencing.

Here's a new project on 400 S between 200W and 300 W, behind the liquor store: the "BRIX." It will be 11-stories (120 ft to roofline) and have 138 apartment units. No ground-floor commercial, the street is faced by windows that look into the tenant gym and leasing office.

I think it looks good from the west but the street face is very plain/ugly.

That’s why I’m saying, throw all the parking below grade like city creek center. It’s very possible the Pantages Theatre will be saved.

Brix project - 235 W 400 S - Additional renderings

https://citizenportal.slcgov.com/Cit...howInspection=

Additional & clean (without all the lines/details) renderings of the proposed development. Developers have filed for a design review with SLC. 138 total residential units ranging from studio to 3 bedroom units (3 bedrooms is relatively unique). The project calls for the addition of a public midblock walkway and public gym to activate the pedestrian experience.

I genuinely love this idea!!! This would be amazing to have, especially right across from the convention center, really activating the space. It would also create amazing flow between city creek, the convention center, Main Street, 100 South, and 200 South.

Nice to see more dense infill. Although, the facade facing 4th is kind of deadly. The city shouldn't allow that much blank facade facing the principal street. That's just bad design.

I hope it's the same architect that designed Casa Milagro because I would hate to think there are two architects who design blank walls facing the street

Bicycle Collective Building - Commercial Building Permit

https://citizenportal.slcgov.com/Cit...howInspection=

The Bicycle Collective Building has filed a commercial building permit.

It's a small project in comparison to many we discuss, but I'm really excited for it nonetheless.

Regarding the street-facing front, I like the base with its glass transparency and the left half of the building particularly with the 2nd and third-floor landscaped terraces. However, I definitely agree that the right half needs an upgrade. Perhaps corner windows or if that's not value engineered enough an attractive top to bottom artwork to the right of the narrow strip of windows maybe something depicting the rich history of that neighborhood could be very engaging and a lot better than nothing. On the left half above floor three, they could do a narrower but corresponding artwork.

The scattered windows on the sides are really nice and unique considering what is generally built in this city. Not sure why they didn't keep the same design elements on the front :/

Also..with this and the Bookbinder project the liquor store is gonna be surrounded by pretty decent looking apartment buildings. Anyone know if the liquor store is gonna close when the new one on 300s eventually opens? Looking like thats gonna be a prime corner

I think overall the design is nice. Nothing stellar, but decent. It's just the lack of prioritizing the facade on 4th south. They need to add more windows on that side. In Seattle, there are restrictions against blank facades.

They also need some more variation in color on that facade. It's very drab.

With the new 300s store, I wonder if they will close the smaller wine/liquor store currently on 300e. Then hopefully they keep this 400s store open, or have a second west downtown location planned.

It would be incredibly dumb if they closed one of the already limited liquor stores we currently have.
