Huh? You said "I can't believe George Bush and the Republicans would approve
this" Last I checked Bush is not the President, Obmama is. Obama approved all of
this spending. Infact he, in less than a year has spend MORE than Bush in 4
years. I'm Sooo glad that America voted for a 'cool and hip' President. You vote
for 'cool and hip' when voting for your high school class president; not for the
President of the United States.
Such a waste. Poor Port-O-Call.
I can't believe George Bush and the Republicans would approve this construction.
I thought they were against tax and spend!
Looks Awasome! You people (above) have no sense of construction. Look at all of
the jobs and money that it will bring into the city.
This courthouse comes right out of the pork barrel.
It's the new Apple store.
are they going to call it the 'ice-cube'......fits the drawing!
It looks like the cube from Transformers. Have the decepticons arrived?Seriously, they need to improve the entrance.
Its ugly. Why can't they design better looking federal buildings?
I wonder how long it took the architect to draw a cube.
We do have a lot of imprisoned individuals. I have been to other countries
where, if you have committed a crime, or embarrassed the country by being a
criminal in the U.S., they just shoot you. No jail time. I also think we need to
enforce the laws we have, rather than make new laws to up-date the laws that are
not getting enforced: ie: immigration laws.
It looks like a hardened compound complete with cement barriers and an
electrified fence on top. I guess the days of classy architecture are long
What about all of the stimulus money being poured into Utah by the democrats red
ones? Do you like it? Would you rather your Rep leaders turn it down? Oh, you'll
take it and continue to bash the democratic administration of this country, I
see! Typical, typical. By the way, how do you like the life your Red party left
This is great....another earmark. How about WE DON'T HAVE ANY MONEY. AND AS
THEY COMMONLY SAY IN NEW YORK....'FORGET ABOUT IT'.
I hope this "artists rendering" is just that, and not the final selection!!
What happened to any sense of style or architecture? Just the big boxy shape is
irritating. ALmost looks like a utility box covered in tin foil. Why can 't
they bring back any sense of style and architecture in public buildings?????
THis, is hideous!!!
The reporter should ask how many different versions of this building were drawn
up. This one looks nothing like the versions shown in prior years--all similarly
ugly, though. This one looks like a vertical prison. Taxpayers paid millions
just to get the design-quit worrying about what was paid for Port O Call, that
was small potatoes to all the other waste that has already been spent on
Bennett's pet pork project. On the other hand, it looks like a great place to
hang that old Budweiser sign that used be on the Shubrick Buiding.
Even though I support SLC landing a new fed courthouse I have to chuckle at the
way it was done. Bennett (et al.) rail against earmarks. But, when the
“pork” is good for his state he quickly and conveniently forgets
he's against such fed handouts.
Ok, Now is the time to investigate The State Government and Prosecute all of
these Criminals running the State of Utah. We will Start with the Judges and
Attorneeys that do not know the Constitution, When will this start?
As a percentage of total population, the United States also has the largest
imprisoned population, with 739 people per 100,000 serving time, awaiting trial
or otherwise detained... I think it's past the time to ask what laws we really
need. Too many laws create too many criminals. Do we need a building like this
that quite honestly does not create value. Nothing is produced in it. It's just
I guess Uriah does not think it is important to prosecute individuals for
Not an attractive building. Big Shiny Box, been there, done that. Is that
chain-link surrounding a rooftop courtyard?
It is a very attractive building. Too bad government has gotten so big that we
need this building and the Moss building to hold it all.
