    Episode 12: Stephen Goldsmith, University of Utah

    Regent Street has long been a street of stories. It is a street where the city’s complexity, diversity of cultures and unique history intersect. Exposing the rich heritage of place represented through Regent Street’s stories must be integrated into the design of the next phase of this street’s life in Salt Lake City.  With the emergence of this area as a theater and performing arts district, the Regent Street Placemaking project will provide a platform for new stories and new memories to be made in a unique setting in downtown Salt Lake City.
    The new Regent Street will serve as a vital connector between the City Creek development to the north and Gallivan Center to the south.  Included in the project are improvements to Orpheum Avenue, connecting Regent Street to State Street, and a new mid-block pedestrian walkway connecting Regent Street directly with Main Street. With the added draw of the new performing arts center, Regent Street is slated to become a home for local business, restaurants, arts, and shopping.
    In many ways Regent Street is becoming something new, a living, functioning place built upon the rich layers of its history. In order to do this, the literary arts, design arts, and fine arts will be expressed through urban design strategies, and provide all who pass by an opportunity for connecting to the culture of our city.
