The Gateway, located in downtown Salt Lake City, is an ambitious mixed-use project including housing retail, restaurants, office space, parking, and entertainment facilities. Constructed on the site of the Union Pacific’s main rail yard, design and construction were on a very tight and critical schedule with the property’s grand opening set to precede the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.
Reaveley Engineers provided structural engineering for blocks B, D and F. Block B is a mixed-use block which combines office, parking, retail and entertainment space. The lower four stories are parking levels totaling over 950 parking stalls. Street-level retail is located around the perimeter. Three separate office towers spring from the lower parking level.
The structural design features a creative mix of two-way, post-tensioned flat plate concrete at parking levels and structural steel at the office/retail levels resulting in an economical solution for this mixed-use project.
