In Pictures: Performing Arts Center on track for early 2016 debut
Construction of the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater appears to be very much on schedule. The theater is expected to be completed in a year from now and open to the public by spring 2016. The theater will include a 2,500 seat Main Hall and smaller black box theater and rehearsal space. A lobby will be shared with the adjacent, and also under-construction, 111 Main Office Tower. The tower will be 24-stories tall and will be one of Salt Lake’s tallest when finished.
The project will include an enhanced pedestrian experience through mid-block improvements along Regent Street and Orpheum Avenue (a mid-block street connecting Regent and State Streets) and the creation of a pedestrian walk-way connecting Main Street to Regent Street just south of Neumont University.
