Title 036-DPAI-AIA-Page 26
Description is mainly auto-oriented retail and commercial, eating and amusement. There is a need for defining its end point where it meets the hard core. Mixed-Indeterminate This area west of the hard core, beginning with the line half a block west of Main Street, is made up of low density retail-commercial warehousing, and industry westward to the band of industry along the railroad tracks. This is a generally deteriorating area from which the hard core is growing away. With the new freeway to the west delivering cars to this side of Downtown, there is great potential for revitalization of this area. City-County Government Complex Planned expansion into the block east of the present City-County Building will strengthen this as a major anchor and employment concentration on the southeast edge of the hard core. This area must be tied very closely to Downtown shopping, restaurants, and services. L.D.S. Church Complex Development planned for the block east of Temple Square and parts of other blocks will make this even more of an anchor on the north edge of the hard core and a principal tourist attraction. State Capitol Area Another major employment center and tourist attraction is the State Capitol, north of the Downtown area at the head of State Street. Close by are the historical Pioneer Museum and Old City Hall. Care should be taken to more closely integrate this area with Downtown shopping and activities. Memory Grove This landscaped portion of City Creek Canyon comes within two blocks of the L.D.S. Church complex, offering an excellent opportunity for extension into the Downtown area. -26-
