Tooele Valley, Washington County, and Moses Lake Temples’ Exterior Artist Renderings Released
Just two days after 8 new temples were announced during the April 2020 General Conference, including three temples in the United States, today three beautiful artist renderings of future temples were released. The three temples are the Tooele Valley Utah Temple, the Washington County Utah Temple, and the Moses Lake Washington Temple. All three of these temples will be incredible! We love how their designs are so unique and surely inspired. We’ll post the images of the renderings below.
None of these temples have official groundbreaking dates set yet, but the release of the artist renderings usually comes as project leaders are preparing to file additional public documents relating to plans for the temple’s design and eventual groundbreaking and beginning of construction at each site. And that means we’re getting close to getting more news about all three of these temples!
And of course, as is always the case with early development announcements, the detailed design plans for these temples are still being created. Interior renderings, as well as more information about dates and open houses, will be made public at a later time.
Tooele Valley Utah Temple
The Tooele Valley Temple, which was announced in April 2019, will be located northwest of the intersection of Erda Way and Highway 36 in Erda, Utah. The site plans were recently submitted to the city for approval, and plans for the temple call for a three-story structure of approximately 70,000 square feet.
Washington County Utah Temple
The Washington County Temple was announced in October 2018, and will be built on a 14-acre site located northeast of 3000 East 1580 South in St. George, Utah. Structural plans call for a three-story temple of approximately 90,000 square feet. This will be the city’s second temple, following the St. George Temple, which is currently closed for extensive renovations. It is expected to reopen sometime in 2022.
Moses Lake Washington Temple
The Moses Lake Temple was announced in April 2019, and will be built on a 17-acre site located on Yonezawa Blvd between Division Street and Rd K NE. It will be the fourth temple built in the state of Washington, following the Seattle, Spokane, and Columbia River temples. Structural plans call for a single-story temple of approximately 20,000 square feet with a center spire. A smaller but beautiful temple!
