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

(DOUG JESSOP – JESSOP’ JOURNEYS) If you generate up and down interstate 15, I ensure you have witnessed Brandon Fugal’s title on signals. As the Chairman of Colliers Intercontinental, Brandon is what I like to contact the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it arrives to financial tendencies.

One of the most important trends Brandon likes to converse about is Provo. In accordance to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Organization District.” We visited about a new setting up growing in downtown Provo called “Freedom Commons,” and is the to start with “Class A” business office space developing in Provo in about a decade (watch the video to get the rest of the information).

My intention with Jessop’s Journeys is to find “people, sites and points you could not know about.” Brandon shared the next information about financial advancement in Provo.

  • As Utah’s 2nd oldest metropolis (started in 1850), Provo has normally been and carries on to be the center of Utah County / Utah Valley
  • Greatest Metropolis in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
  • Centre for education and learning, health care, governing administration, transportation, hospitality
  • Interesting, livable, historic downtown (the only just one in Utah County)

There are a lot more than 20,000 included communities in The us. Though lots of are prospering, many others are battling. Provo City is setting the city regular, not just locally, but nationally, as shown by its currently being named the nation’s 2001’s Ideal-Run Metropolis.

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

Metropolis leaders get in touch with it “The Provo Advantage.” What really do not you know about Provo? You can signal up for a month-to-month electronic mail at to find out.


Anyone has a tale. I strongly experience that “stories have power”. Likelihood are that if you are likely by a little something, that a person else almost certainly has as properly. The shared activities we humans have can assist just about every other. That my good friend can make the position that stories “help us understand every other.”

You really don’t have to agree with everyone, but in my view, if men and women would just take far more time receiving to knowing much more about some others and where they are coming from, we just may find out that we have more similarities than distinctions.
