From Parking Garages to Street Theater

You’re invited to a free presentation and tour sponsored by UCFA about the transformation of one of Salt Lake City’s most disliked and even notorious downtown streets into a place you’d show off to out-of-town visitors. Regent Street is being re-discovered from its days as a dark tunnel between concrete parking garages and vacant loading docks to a sunny link in the City’s growing arts and culture core.

The revitalization of Regent Street is the second major piece following the opening of the Eccles Performing Arts Center toward realizing goals for the Main & Regent District. These goals include creating new places where people can live, work and play downtown, extending the clock in the heart of Salt Lake City and activating the interior of the block. You’ll have an opportunity to ask questions and gauge your own response to this new development.

The presentation and tour will be Monday, April 24, 2:30 p.m., beginning in the new Eccles Performing Arts Center, 131 S Main St., Salt Lake City. It will include a tour of the theater as well as the surrounding urban development. Space is limited. Click here to register.

Presenters include:

  • Christine Richman, AICP  Chair, ULI Utah (Moderator)
  • Steve Swisher, AIA  President GTS Development
  • Matt Baldwin, President City Creek Reserve
  • Justin Belliveau, former-CAO Salt Lake City RDA

We will start with a presentation in the new Eccles Theater followed by a tour of the theater and Regent Street. Wear your walking shoes!
