The Warm Springs Plunge building and its site at 840 North 300 West have a rich history as a community gathering place.

From the use of the springs by indigenous people, then early Mormon settlers, to the municipal pool that many still fondly remember, to the well-loved Children’s Museum, the area has cultivated community in unique ways for hundreds of years.

The full potential of this place has yet to be realized in a modern context.

The fact that the site has stood vacant for so many years shows that its value cannot be realized by a standard model of development. The value of Warm Springs isn’t as a blank slate for whatever development comes along. Its greatest potential flows from its unique features and history.

A new approach is needed, and we’ve got it.
