(DOUG JESSOP – JESSOP’ JOURNEYS) If you push up and down interstate 15, I ensure you have observed Brandon Fugal’s identify on signals. As the Chairman of Colliers International, Brandon is what I like to simply call the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it comes to economic trends.

Just one of the biggest traits Brandon likes to discuss about is Provo. According to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Organization District.” We visited about a new constructing growing in downtown Provo known as “Freedom Commons,” and is the to start with “Class A” office area building in Provo in more than a decade (enjoy the online video to get the relaxation of the facts).

My goal with Jessop’s Journeys is to come across “people, sites and matters you may well not know about.” Brandon shared the adhering to specifics about economic expansion in Provo.
