SALT LAKE CITY — A rendering of the design of the Layton Utah Temple became public Tuesday morning with a news release from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
President Russell M. Nelson announced the temple in 2018. It will be built at the corner of Oak Hills Drive and Rosewood Lane on land the church purchased from the Morgan family.
Family members have said they are honored to have the temple built on a site that had been in the family for more than 150 years.
The church released the rendering as its project leaders prepared to file public documents with the city about plans for the design, which calls for a three-story temple with more than 87,000 square feet.
Church leaders have not yet released a date for the groundbreaking date.
Utah has 17 operating temples with six more announced in Layton, Orem, Saratoga Springs, Taylorsville, Tooele Valley and Washington County.
