The Park City Arts, Culture and Community District is a 170,000 square foot multi-structure mixed-use development on a 5.02 acre site in Park City, Utah. The project will be the new and permanent home to two of park City’s historic arts non-profits, the Kimball Art Center and the Sundance Institute. Each of them will be anchors to the Arts District which will include 57,00 square feet of Park City managed or leased arts and cultural spaces. Spaces are planned for working artist studios, a food hall, local artisan retail space, arts exhibit space, recording studio and video editing space, meeting and performance spaces, as well as co-workspace for local arts and culture nonprofits. The project will include 43,500 square feet of affordable apartments and units for artists in residence. The project will be centered around a pedestrian plaza and will include 420 below-grade parking spaces. Development costs for the project will be 94 million dollars for the city operated spaces, plaza, landscape, and parking. The KAC and SDI buildings will be an additional 25 million and 35 million dollars respectively, for a total project cost of 154 million dollars excluding land costs.
The district will be a new center of collaboration for Park City’s local creatives and not-for- profits in the arts, culture, film, food, design, media, visual arts, music, writing, and dance. The district is designed to provide a space for organic creative collisions and collaboration. The project will be the core of a creative cluster that will extend into the surrounding business and residential community. Integrated active mobility, and transit connections are key elements of the master plan.
