RDA of SL, Salt Lake City Corp. was looking for a substantial piece (20ft x 20ft x6ft) that elated to the historic functions of this revitalized neighborhood and would enhance the traffic corridor and work as a gateway piece to the new commercial area.
The site was limited to an old RR track bed that lay in the Median of the 400west corridor.The Historic functions of the neighborhood had been heavy industry and its warehouses. There was also a new pedestrian mall and this would become a landmark for the area.
This was Site Specific work and the Goals and potential concepts were highlighted in a pre proposal meeting.
