Sandy approves skyscraper plan
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2008, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

A planned Sandy skyscraper can climb to 560 feet - and have an architectural spire that soars to 852 feet above street level.

Sandy's Planning Commission has approved the height and architectural design of the first phase of The Proscenium, a 2.3 million square-foot project envisioned near 10000 South and Interstate 15.

Sandy created a special arts-and-culture zone to accommodate the project and allow heights beyond the city's 140-foot cap. To score the additional height, The Proscenium had to carry multiple uses, including office, entertainment, residential and hotel, and a regional arts facility. The developer plans a $55 million, 2,700-seat Broadway-style playhouse.

Currently, Utah's tallest tower, the LDS Church Office Building, is 435 feet.
