SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Officials plan to construct a 28-story glass skyscraper to hold a new convention center hotel in downtown Salt Lake City.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported Sunday that preliminary plans show the $337 million hotel will have about 725 guest rooms and will be built into the southeast corner of the Salt Lake Palace Convention Center.

The design of the 616,000-square-foot (57,000-square-meter) tower aims to compliment the center with rounded edges and a glass and textured aluminum exterior.

The building will feature a ballroom, meeting rooms, a rooftop garden area, and a restaurant and corner market. The main entrance will be sandwiched between massive digital billboards.

The hotel is scheduled to open in spring 2022.
