(Courtesy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) The Syracuse Temple will be built at the intersection of 2500 West and 1025 South.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced it will build its Syracuse Temple on a 12-acre site at the intersection of 2500 West and 1025 South in that Davis County city.

The three-story, 89,000-square-foot temple, which was announced by church President Russell M. Nelson at April’s General Conference, will be the 24th in Utah.

Six more have been announced or are under construction in the Beehive State: Layton, Saratoga Springs, Orem, Red Cliffs in St. George, Tooele Valley and Taylorsville.

The historic Salt Lake and St. George temples are undergoing renovation, and all the temples have been limited by the pandemic.

In its news release Friday, the church did not say when ground will be broken on the Syracuse Temple, nor has it released any renderings of the structure.

The Utah-based faith also announced Friday that it will break ground on previously announced temples in Bentonville, Ark., and McAllen, Texas, in November.

Latter-day Saints view temples as Houses of the Lord, places where faithful members participate in their religion’s highest rites.
