Gateway District Land Use & Development Master Plan
Landmark Design headed a team of planners, urban designers, economists, architects, engineers, environmental specialists, and transportation planners on master planning 650 acres of underutilized urban land adjacent to Salt Lake City’s downtown. The project involved an extensive process of public involvement; three charettes in which national consultants participated in the analysis and planning for specific issues in the Gateway District; numerous meetings with property owners, residents, and business interests in the area; and briefings with the Planning Commission and City Council. In addition to the planning aspects of the project, it also included a Brownfield pilot project, which addresses the reuse of contaminated lands, and a blight survey conducted on all properties in the area. The Plan was adopted in 1998 and is in a continuing process of being implemented.
