Am I wrong or is there more parking than buildings? Where is our priorty here?
Definitely not wrong. The world belongs to the cars now…
The plans shown on this site do not reflect all of the changes made since receiving input from the community and Planning Commission. A large public plaza has been added as a pedestrian connection to the office buildings from the street and retail functions have been added along Stringham. Only 12% of the parking is exposed on the top level of the podium and it is not visible from the street. That parking is used primarily by the U of U Medical Center for valet parking, accessible parking stalls, and urgent care patients. The building facades have been redesigned to fit the character of Sugar House; more eclectic, more masonry, less glass, custom detailing. Updated plans and renderings will be submitted in the next couple weeks.
