The One with The Point

In ten years, the point of the mountain between Salt Lake and Utah counties is going to look very different. That's because THE Frank Gehry (architect/designer of the Guggenheim in Bilbao Spain,and the EMP in Seattle (and more)) is giving the area a serious makeover. On Wednesday he revealed his plans. Wooden and metal blocks stacked Lego-style resemble the future 2.1 billion-dollars-to-build town. "The Point" will include of a five-star hotel - which could become the state's tallest building at 450 feet - and a 12,000-seat arena. Stores, condos, offices and restaurants will make up a town center. On the outside edges of the man-made water features, there will be more housing for folks who want to live near downtown but not in it
Looks like something straight out of Dr. Seuss book if you ask me! But, I'm all for modern designs so I'm excited that this is going to be built in Lehi, UT of all places.
