222 Main is Salt Lake City’s most exclusive office development centered in the heart of an emerging downtown. Combining landmark quality with 21st century vision, 222 Main sets a new standard in architectural design and construction. The building is composed of three main sections: the podium, the office tower, and the parking structure. Designed by the internationally renowned architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP.
The ground-level podium section is clad with granite, aluminum, and high transparency glass with a size, dimension, and proportion that relates to the scale of neighboring historic buildings. The Lobby features an active fireplace and finishes of stone, Spanish cedar and “Venetian” art plaster, to provide a welcoming atmosphere for both 222 guests and tenants.
The office tower above the podium is designed as two slender towers placed front to back. It features floor-to-ceiling glass and view corridors. The building structural grid provides column-free floor spans, allowing for efficient and flexible space planning. The exterior has an articulated glass veil structure at the roofline. In the evening, night lighting emanates from behind the glass veil to give the building a glowing lantern effect.
Additionally, 222 Main is an intelligent building, with energy conserving and fully automated HVAC systems. Fiber optic capability is provided on all office floors. Voice/data communication and life safety/security systems are state-of-the-art and customizable. The building features high transparency, low reflectivity exterior glazing, and is seismically engineered to modern structural safety and efficiency standards.
