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 assurance you have seen Brandon Fugal’s title on indicators. As the Chairman of Colliers Intercontinental, Brandon is what I like to call the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it comes to financial traits.

One particular of the most significant trends Brandon likes to discuss about is Provo. According to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Small business District.” We visited about a new constructing growing in downtown Provo called “Freedom Commons,” and is the initially “Class A” workplace area developing in Provo in over a decade (check out the video clip to get the relaxation of the facts).

My aim with Jessop’s Journeys is to uncover “people, spots and points you could possibly not know about.” Brandon shared the pursuing details about economic advancement in Provo.

  • As Utah’s 2nd oldest city (established in 1850), Provo has always been and carries on to be the middle of Utah County / Utah Valley
  • Most significant Town in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
  • Center for schooling, clinical, govt, transportation, hospitality
  • Exciting, livable, historic downtown (the only a single in Utah County)

There are additional than 20,000 incorporated communities in America. Even though many are prospering, some others are battling. Provo Metropolis is setting the city normal, not just domestically, but nationally, as demonstrated by its staying named the nation’s 2001’s Best-Run Town.

So what is the mystery sauce that Provo City has disincluded that has acquired them the moniker “Central Enterprise District of Utah County?”

City leaders phone it “The Provo Advantage.” What do not you know about Provo? You can indicator up for a month-to-month email at to obtain out.


Absolutely everyone has a story. I strongly come to feel that “stories have power”. Likelihood are that if you are going by one thing, that another person else possibly has as perfectly. The shared encounters we individuals have can enable every other. That my close friend would make the place that stories “help us understand each individual other.”

You do not have to concur with everybody, but in my view, if people today would get more time obtaining to knowing extra about other individuals and in which they are coming from, we just may come across out that we have additional similarities than discrepancies.
