Assembly Hall Named

Summarized by Kent Larsen

Assembly Hall Named
Salt Lake Tribune 21Aug99 C6
Assembly Hall Named

The LDS Church announced on Friday that the new assembly building will be called the Conference Center. The 21,000-seat auditorium under construction in downtown Salt Lake City occupies an entire block north of Temple Square. It will be one of the largest-capacity religious buildings in the world.

The Church still hopes to use the building for the April 2000 General Conference in spite of damage to the building's roof and front wall that occurred during the tornado that hit Salt Lake City on August 11th. The damage occurred when the boom of a crane collapsed on the building.
