Top five development stories in 2015

Number Two: The VOID Corporate Center

The proposed tower for the northwest corner of the intersection of 400 South and West Temple has changed names and designs several times since first announced two years ago.  Current plans for the Void Corporate Center (VCC), call for a 22 story, 268-foot mixed-use development that includes restaurants, nightlife, a hotel, 10 residential units and office space.

Number One: The Regent Street Hotel

News about a proposed hotel at the site of the former Eat-A-Burger on the 100 South block of Regent Street was so popular that two separate articles on the project were the number one and number most-read stories in 2015. Developers, Form Development, propose a 20-story mixed-use project that will include ground floor retail, a 150-room boutique hotel and 26 to 34 residential condominium units.

The Eat-A-Burger was demolished in October and the site will serve as the staging grounds for construction work on Regent Street enhancements.  Developers hope to start construction fall of 2016.
