Cultural District Planned For Downtown Salt Lake City

Plans for a Broadway-style theater and "cultural district" in downtown Salt Lake City moves forward.

"From housing in the former Salt Lake Tribune building to a new home for the Salt Lake Art Center, the Downtown Alliance is circulating maps and artistic renderings of its vision of a "cultural district" in downtown Salt Lake City.
The plans hinge on the announcement of the site of a Broadway-style theater, still a month away.

The Downtown Alliance, which is part of the Salt Lake Chamber, in recent weeks has presented its plans for Blocks 69 and 70, which run from West Temple to State Street and 100 South and 200 South. The plans are the result of a yearlong study by Prescott Muir Architects.

The cultural district could generate $600 million in new development, Downtown Alliance executive director Bob Farrington said"
