SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Demolition has begun on Main Street in Salt Lake City for a new 2,500-seat performing arts theater that officials expect will host Broadway shows, music, comedy and family entertainment.

Alan Rindlisbacher of Layton Construction Co. tells KSL-TV (https://bit.ly/LIeQYw ) that workers have been tearing down the backs of a block of buildings since August, but the public can now start seeing progress.

Three buildings north of Neumont University will be razed, and an office tower on the corner of 100 South will be integrated into the design.

The Performing Arts Center is scheduled to open in March 2016 at a cost of about $114 million.

Design renderings show a sleek, modern building with several street-facing terraces and a plaza that designers hope will attract visitors and nightlife.
