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 warranty you’ve observed Brandon Fugal’s title on indications. As the Chairman of Colliers Global, Brandon is what I like to contact the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it arrives to financial tendencies.

A single of the major tendencies Brandon likes to converse about is Provo. In accordance to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Enterprise District.” We frequented about a new building soaring in downtown Provo called “Freedom Commons,” and is the very first “Class A” place of work space constructing in Provo in around a ten years (observe the movie to get the relaxation of the aspects).

My goal with Jessop’s Journeys is to locate “people, spots and issues you may well not know about.” Brandon shared the adhering to points about economic progress in Provo.

  • As Utah’s 2nd oldest town (established in 1850), Provo has always been and proceeds to be the center of Utah County / Utah Valley
  • Largest Metropolis in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
  • Heart for instruction, clinical, govt, transportation, hospitality
  • Thrilling, livable, historic downtown (the only just one in Utah County)

There are far more than 20,000 incorporated communities in America. When numerous are prospering, other folks are battling. Provo Town is location the metropolis common, not just locally, but nationally, as demonstrated by its becoming named the nation’s 2001’s Ideal-Run Metropolis.

So what is the magic formula sauce that Provo Town has disprotected that has attained them the moniker “Central Company District of Utah County?”

Metropolis leaders simply call it “The Provo Advantage.” What really do not you know about Provo? You can sign up for a regular monthly email at to uncover out.


Everybody has a story. I strongly truly feel that “stories have power”. Odds are that if you are likely by means of a thing, that somebody else possibly has as well. The shared encounters we humans have can support each and every other. That my buddy helps make the place that stories “help us comprehend each other.”

You never have to concur with everybody, but in my impression, if people today would just take far more time receiving to knowing a lot more about other people and in which they are coming from, we just may possibly discover out that we have a lot more similarities than variances.
