Sugar Factory Playhouse
West Jordan, Utah

After the city bowery was demolished to make way for a new fire station, West Jordan Theater Arts opened the 230-seat Sugar Factory Playhouse in the city's old sugar factory.  Inspired by Trolley Square, the West Jordan City Council planned to renovate the sugar factory and turn it into a cultural arts center with a larger auditorium, amphitheater, art gallery, conference center, reception hall, and retail center.  Expensive seismic upgrades eventually doomed the project and the sugar factory was demolished by the end of 2010.
