Why do we need more rental apartment units? They should built more condos for
sale instead of apartments. We don't need office buildings in this area.
There are lots of office space around highland drive vacant. Plus I dont see
where all this people are going to park. Where is the parking lot for the
shopping and the office space. These builders just want to make a mess of
Holliday and the surrounding areas. The city should not approve this
@Liberal Larry, Yes, A Central Park or a Sugarhouse Park type park would
be wonderful in that space, but since the county doesn't own it and the
developers do then it's a nice dream. Ivory Homes and the Woodbury Corp.
make money by developing so that's what is going to happen. I am glad they
toned down their original plan, I wish they would tone it down more but.....
Anyway South, North and West of the Cottonwood Mall area are hundreds of
Apartments, Condos and rental units. I am just afraid good ol' Holladay is
going to turn into the developmental mess that "quaint" Sugarhouse has
become......a quagmire of rental development/strip malls and fast food
I applaud the citizens of Holladay for fighting the good fight and eliminating
the Ivory Towers aspect of the former plan. As a resident of a neighboring
community it is delightful to see the progress being made in the town by
carefully doing things the right way - slowly and with citizen input and working
through problems. Just imagine! Politicians listening to the citizenry,
instead of only the developers. Kudos!
Maybe we can siphon off some of that prison bounty, buy the land, and turn it
into an other Central Park!
...as a long term resident of a neighboring Holladay community, I must fist bump
those residents who are holding out for the ‘right development
plan’. Holladay’s history of country charm mixed with upscale
significance must not be lost!...affordable housing with a design model to match
the historic demographic makes sense...leave the extreme high rise to downtown
SLC or the southwest quadrant...
Fully Present,We already have low income housing and subsidized housing
here in Holladay. And it’s right across the street from the former mall.
Plus we have a lot of older, smaller homes here. And yes, some on my best
neighbors are teachers and nurses!
Amazing the state can draft bills, hold public hearings, and pass a resolution
to a move an entire Prison but it take years for them to make plans on
developing a old Mall. All I'm saying is, isn't it
suspicious how quickly a Prison Move got pass but building a some town homes and
condos takes years.... $$$$
Having grown up there and as an adult lived there, my biggest concern is the
developers. One in particular has a reputation of not following through and
standing behind their projects. Holladay does not need another 15 years of a
ghost town because the project isn't completed.
Really Holladay City Council? 10 years with zero to show for it. If you wait
another couple of years, we'll have a recession and Woodbury Corp and Ivory
Homes will be gone. Then the old Cottonwood Mall site will sit unused for
another decade. When you shoot down this lastest proposal,(which you will)
then what? You are living in fear of a few "vocal opponents" who will
never be satisfied. Have the courage to make a decision. Show some leadership.
Holladay obviously does not want any low-income housing in their city. But, they
should at least make the homes affordable for people like single teachers,
nurses, EMT's, and others that can contribute good things to their
community but can't afford high-end homes. Some work at IMC and that would
be great to have housing that close to their work but it needs to be affordable.
Some work at the Moran Eye Center by Fashion Place Mall and other medical
facilities in that area. They have enough high-end housing in Holladay that is
not affordable for the average person.
