Construction on a new 25-story office tower in downtown Salt Lake City is set to begin this month.

2News first reported details on the tower late last year.

City Creek Reserve, Inc. (CCRI), which is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, announced Tuesday the tower will be named "95 State at City Creek."

Construction on the building, which will sit on the northeast corner of 100 South and State Street (next to City Creek Harmon's) will begin this month and is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2021.

The 393-foot building will be Utah's third tallest, behind the Wells Fargo Building (422 feet), and the Church Office Building (420 feet).

You can see artist renderings of what the new building will look like in our gallery above.

Bruce Lyman, Director of Leasing for CCRI said:

95 State at City Creek is designed to appeal to today’s employees.Its central location and state-of-the-art amenities are designed to maximize wellness, sustainability, and productivity to help our tenants make the most of their workday.

The building will have 498,000 square feet of Class-A office space, along with 39,000 square feet of "meetinghouse space for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints."

The office space and church meeting space will have separate entrances and be operated independently from each other.

Another high-rise development is in the works just half a block south of the proposed location for Tower 8.

Liberty Sky, which will mostly feature residential units is planned for 150 South State Street and would reach a height of 250-feet.

Also in the works for Salt Lake City is a new 28-story convention hotel, details of which were announced last month.

"The building will also feature a 5th-floor garden terrace with 7,000 square feet of landscaping, a lobby with 28-foot floor-to-ceiling glass, on-site restaurant, and a renovated underground pedestrian walkway beneath State Street with direct, protected access to City Creek Center," CCRI stated in a news release.

95 State at City Creek will offer the following amenities:

  • Executive parking
  • Exercise facilities with daily classes
  • Private entrance for cyclists with secure bike storage
  • Automated window shading
  • Personalized HVAC systems, allowing people to "control their microclimate."

CCRI says this will be the first high rise development on State Street in decades.
