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.
