A Second Chance at Greatness

Recently the Provo City Council voted to sell the old security center in south Provo to DR Horton who intended to tear it down to build town-homes. ProVolt filed suit to stop the sale. We asked for the building to be opened for inspections, and that the bidding process be re-started.

I’m happy to tell you that the Mayor’s office agreed to those terms, and we will have a second chance at being able to make something amazing happen in Provo!


The building will need extensive renovation, but at 65,800 Square feet, this building could be the largest makerspace in the world. There would be enough room for prototyping equipment, exhibits, offices, classrooms, labs, workshops, and a commercial kitchen. Having equipment and tools in a space like this that is open to everyone could have incalculable benefits for the entire community.

Check out our Previous Proposal, and let us know what you’d like to see there.
