Provo is Utah County’s Central Business District. Brandon Fugal on Jessop’s Journeys

(DOUG JESSOP – JESSOP’ JOURNEYS) If you travel up and down interstate 15, I ensure you’ve witnessed Brandon Fugal’s name on indications. As the Chairman of Colliers Intercontinental, Brandon is what I like to simply call the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it will come to economic traits.

One particular of the major traits Brandon likes to discuss about is Provo. According to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Organization District.” We frequented about a new constructing increasing in downtown Provo referred to as “Freedom Commons,” and is the first “Class A” office room creating in Provo in in excess of a decade (enjoy the movie to get the rest of the particulars).

My aim with Jessop’s Journeys is to obtain “people, destinations and issues you could possibly not know about.” Brandon shared the next specifics about financial advancement in Provo.

  • As Utah’s 2nd oldest metropolis (launched in 1850), Provo has normally been and continues to be the heart of Utah County / Utah Valley
  • Largest City in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
  • Center for education, medical, authorities, transportation, hospitality
  • Remarkable, livable, historic downtown (the only a person in Utah County)

There are far more than 20,000 incorporated communities in America. Whilst numerous are prospering, others are having difficulties. Provo Metropolis is location the metropolis conventional, not just locally, but nationally, as demonstrated by its getting named the nation’s 2001’s Ideal-Run City.

So what is the top secret sauce that Provo Metropolis has disprotected that has acquired them the moniker “Central Business District of Utah County?”

City leaders phone it “The Provo Benefit.” What really do not you know about Provo? You can signal up for a regular monthly e-mail at ProvoConnect.com to locate out.


Everyone has a story. I strongly feel that “stories have power”. Prospects are that if you are going via a thing, that somebody else most likely has as very well. The shared experiences we people have can assist each and every other. That my friend tends to make the position that stories “help us comprehend every single other.”

You really do not have to concur with all people, but in my belief, if people today would get a lot more time getting to recognizing much more about other folks and where by they are coming from, we just could possibly come across out that we have more similarities than variances.
