There is a lot of construction activity at the University of Utah as the University evolves into an increasingly urban campus. On the University’s main campus, the Student Life Center and the S.J. Quinney Law College of Law Building are close to completion. Also under construction on the main campus are the Business Loop Parking Terrace, a proposed 800-stall parking garage just west of the Huntsman Center on the south end of campus and the new Jon M. and Karen Huntsman Basketball Training Center, which is adjacent to the garage.
As part of its master plan, the University of Utah is utilizing surface parking and other available spaces to provide for the school’s expansion. As a University that used to be dominated by surface parking lots, the school is now turning to new parking garages that will provide needed parking and free up space for new buildings and provide more parking while preserving green space on campus. In addition to the parking garage along the business loop, construction will start next month on the Northwest Parking Terrace, a 350-stall garage that will be built at the corner of 100 South and Wolcott street.
