SALT LAKE CITY — A proposed hotel incorporating Salt Lake City’s former Union Pacific station is closer to reality after the city’s planning council approved, with conditions, a site review.

The Building Salt Lake website reports that the project had already received the necessary approval from the Historic Landmark Commission, reflecting the station’s historic designation, although that commission will need to give final approval to proposed signage and alterations to the building.

The project will leave the station exterior mostly unchanged, with a curving, eight-story structure behind the station housing 225 guest rooms, 26 suites, a coffee shop, and restaurant space.
