This project consists of five new core-and-shell buildings for future retail and office tenant build-outs totaling 66,000 sq ft. The building materials are somewhat unique to Salt Lake Valley construction. The use of raw materials was common throughout the five buildings. Some of the materials are polished, clear-coated structural steel, unprimed structural steel, Corten corrugated panels installed flat in some areas and shingled in others.
Other materials include the use of acid-washed, galvanized roofing and wall panels and stainless-steel mesh for the entrance canopy. The project was initially planned for LEED-Silver certification, but with the diligence of the project team, it is now slated for Gold certification.
