The building core for 111 Main, the newest addition to Salt Lake City’s skyline, is rising quickly. The core appears to be built up to the about the tenth floor with the steal up to the fifth floor. The project has already surpassed the adjacent, nine-story Emergency Dispatch building and can now be seen from various points across the city, hinting at its potential impact on the city skyline.
The tower will share a lobby with the adjacent, and also under-construction, George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater. The tower will be 24-stories tall and will cover the northern portion of the theater.
The potential LEED Gold Certificated tower was designed by the architectural firm, Skidmore Owings & Merrill. The building will include 445,000 square feet of office space, a lobby restaurant, retail and a sundries shop.
Hamilton Partners, the initial developers of 111 Main, turned the project over to City Creek Reserve, a real-estate arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in February of 2014. The office tower is scheduled for completion in September of 2016.
