The client asked JSA's design team to create an exciting theme for its new resort development with a centerpiece based on the National Park Service grand hotels. JSA prepared a comprehensive ten-year master plan for the site, which is situated in Utah's breathtaking Wasatch Range in the Rocky Mountains.
JSA was awarded the design of the cornerstone building for this mixed-use resort community. The Canyons Grand Summit Hotel is the 300,000sf focal point of the town and includes penthouse condominiums, conference facilities, a fine dining restaurant and various smaller cafes, a lobby lounge, and a swimming pool. Attractive retail space draws clientele from the surrounding area. The Canyons has become one of the most successful winter resort destinations in the country.
