Hello, are any of you familiar with the proposed downtown redevelopment of Salt Lake City? The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is investing a lot into the area around the Temple block and owns the two existing blocks (which house the two malls) currently. They also provided some renderings of concept plans for some renovations at: http://www.lds.org/newsroom/showrele...-17842,00.html
Since this announcement, future press has stated that the original renderings are not accurate to the current plans and work being developed. Concepts of "opening up" the two malls, (instead of just having glass) have been circulated, making it more of a walkable area. Plans are confidential at the moment as they are working with corporations and retail in private, as to not "give away" any prospective clients before legal finality.
My question is this: There are two firms working with the Church named AEW and Taubman. Are anyone of you familiar with them and their work?? Thoughts please. This huge project is of major impact to my city and discussed at length at the University here. Thanx,
