One of the most controversial properties in Park City has entered a new stage: a developer just finalized its acquisition of the Kimball Art Center building. A landmark since 1976, in 2012 the KAC wanted to add 15,000 square feet and an interior renovation to mark the Utah ski town as "an emerging national arts destination." They turned to famed Danish architect Bjarke Ingels (BIG) who unveiled two designs that were eventually opposed: a massive 76-foot tall log cabin and a 46-foot modern concrete structure. Unable to develop the property, the Art Center now plans to relocate and sold the property to a California development firm called LCC Properties. That deal has officially been finalized, even as opposition increases against the proposed "Kimball Residences & Shops." More details, this way.
