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.
