The old Provo tabernacle was destroyed in 2011 when unattended audio equipment started a devastating fire. The LDS Church rebuilt the building and restored it to it's original glory including the center spire which was previously removed from the tabernacle because of architectual instability.

BYU Womens' Gym - Built in 1903 and sold by BYU in 1979. It was then used as a thrift store and its future was uncertain until 2007 when Leslie and Michael Gledhill bought the building with the intention of preserving it.

Provo Library - formerly Brigham Young Academy. This building sat vacant and uncared for throughout all of my childhood. Developers almost succeeded in tearing it down but citizen fundraising efforts lead by Doug Smoot resulted in a renovation in 2001.

I used to work in this building during college. It was not "hip" back then. The "Start Up Building" got it's name from a candy company that inhabited the building. Coincidentally it now houses budding tech start ups.

The Old 4th Ward Chapel - Sold by the LDS church in around 1965 and used as a wedding chapel until a botched remodel in 2001 ushered in a dramatic decline in business. It sat vacant and would have been lost to a bank who would have sold it to developers, but luckily the owners had already paid the building off. Developer Greg Soter bought the building and turned it into upscale apartments in a renovation that was completed in 2015.
