Rob Spanier, Senior VP of Live Work Learn Play, leads you through this project that includes the 1908 Union Pacific Depot (now serving as a reception hall and live music club), Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum, Clark Planetarium, and a movie theatre, as well as office, retail, housing, and a linear park. Can it build off the momentum of its new transit connection, the redeveloping Granary District, or the Downtown Streetcar project being planned that will connect the Gateway with, among other things, the City Creek mega-project at the heart of SLC’s CBD? Workshop concepts while exploring the neighborhood.
