(DOUG JESSOP – JESSOP’ JOURNEYS) If you drive up and down interstate 15, I assure you have viewed Brandon Fugal’s title on indications. As the Chairman of Colliers Intercontinental, Brandon is what I like to contact the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it will come to economic tendencies.

1 of the major trends Brandon likes to communicate about is Provo. In accordance to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Company District.” We visited about a new setting up rising in downtown Provo known as “Freedom Commons,” and is the first “Class A” place of work place setting up in Provo in about a ten years (watch the movie to get the rest of the aspects).

My aim with Jessop’s Journeys is to uncover “people, locations and points you may not know about.” Brandon shared the next specifics about financial advancement in Provo.

  • As Utah’s 2nd oldest metropolis (launched in 1850), Provo has usually been and carries on to be the center of Utah County / Utah Valley
  • Most significant Town in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
  • Middle for instruction, healthcare, authorities, transportation, hospitality
  • Thrilling, livable, historic downtown (the only 1 in Utah County)

There are extra than 20,000 incorporated communities in The us. Even though several are prospering, other people are battling. Provo Metropolis is environment the town regular, not just domestically, but nationally, as proven by its staying named the nation’s 2001’s Best-Run City.
