Title Page 16
Description The location proposed is on South Temple at the head of 2nd East, where it will form a magnificent focus as well as fitting into and strengthening the existing character of South Temple. Possibly the center of the structure could be opened up so as to allow development of gardens tying into the historically significant grave of Brigham Young on the hill above. State Capitol Area As state government expands its activities, this area will become even more of an employment concentration. The Capitol Building, Daughters of the Utah Pioneers Museum, and the restored Old City Hall are major tourist attractions. The proposed internal circulation system "would provide the needed ease of access between this area and Downtown, Residential In addition to the area already mentioned east of the church complex and Memory Grove, the entire area between the State Capitol and church complex is a prime apartment area for close-in living. The presently deteriorating condition of this area should allow much new development in the future. East Side City-County Government Complex When expansion into the block east of the City-County Building is completed, this will be a major employment concentration and anchor on the edge of the hard core. Internal circulation service will tie this complex closely to all other parts of Downtown. Presently planned for early construction are the City Library, District and City Courts Building, and Metropolitan Hall of Justice which will include the City & County Jail, County Sheriff's office, City Traffic Court and Traffic Violations Bureau. Underground parking will be incorporated beneath the new block; a mall will connect the two blocks, with 2nd East depressed under. Professional Center Directly east of Auerbach's is proposed a Professional Center for offices and clinics of doctors, dentists, lawyers, architects, and related services. Parking Along the 2nd East edge of the Downtown is proposed a system of parking facilities in keeping with the concept of peripheral landing spots -16-
