UTAH’S INNOVATION COMMUNITY
The public is invited to a viewing for the demolition of a guard tower at the old state prison. The
viewing will take place on Tuesday, November 29 at 10 a.m. at the north end of the prison
complex. Crews are scheduled to take down a decades-old prison guard tower, signaling a new
chapter in redeveloping the site into Utah’s Innovation Community.
Widely recognized as one of the most important economic opportunities in state history, The Point consists of 600 acres of state-owned land that will be built into Utah’s Innovation Community. The new community will foster innovation and technological advancement, provide parks and open space, support economic growth and enhance Utahns’ quality of life.
The first phase of development will serve as a catalyst for the site. Located at the heart of site, it is reflective of Utahns’ vision. It includes a pedestrian-priority area, a Central Park, regional trail connections, transit-oriented development, a balanced mix of jobs, housing, retail, shopping, entertainment, and so much more.
