Utah's First LEED Certified Restaurants Opening On Site this Summer
Salt Lake City – July 15, 2013 – The Salt Lake City office of CBRE announced today that they have completed the consolidation of their Salt Lake offices to 222 South Main Street. Mark Bouchard, senior managing director, and Bill Parry, project management director, oversaw the consolidation and build-out process.
“The majority of our brokers have been located at 222 since the building opened in early 2010. Since that time we’ve anticipated the full consolidation of our professionals, and I’m happy to announce that we have now completed this process,” said Bouchard.
CBRE was the first tenant in the building and has occupied the fourth floor since January of 2010. With the consolidation, CBRE now occupies approximately 16,000 square feet on the 4th and 18th floors.
Bouchard further noted, “It’s an exciting time to be in downtown Salt Lake. The Downtown Rising initiative, which started in 2006, was the catalyst for a great deal of developments, including the construction of 222 Main. This focus on establishing Salt Lake as an economic stronghold and destination continues to redefine the city center. Conducting business from the middle of this momentum helps us stay in tune with the local market, and assists us in delivering what our clients want and need in order to be successful.”
Earlier this year, Equiwest Hospitality began constructing two new restaurants on the ground floor of the building – Sonny Bryan’s Smokehouse and Bistro 222. In keeping with the building’s LEED certification, these will be Utah’s first LEED certified restaurants. Sonny Bryan’s anticipates opening before the end of the summer, and Bistro 222 should be open in early fall.
222 Main is a 426,657-square-foot, class A office building located in the heart of the Central Business District. Constructed by Hamilton Partners, it was Utah’s first LEED Gold certified high-rise. The building is currently 81% leased with high-profile tenants, such as Hamilton Partners and Holland & Hart. CBRE’s Scott Wilmarth, senior vice president, and Eric Smith, senior vice president, are the exclusive leasing agents for the building.
