X96 Seeking Salt Lake: Arrow Press Square

Jon Smith visits the original X96 studio location, which hasn’t been occupied since the 90’s. Let’s just say that it’s not in the best shape and it seems that won’t change soon. We were met with hostile squatters, blood on the walls, human waste and some very creepy sights. Jon also talks to the building’s owners to find out why they don’t just demolish it

Referred to by the Desert News as “a rotten tooth on the city skyline,” Arrow Press Square was the home to many different businesses: a virtual reality arcade, a Chinese restaurant, a Mexican restaurant, The Blue Boutique, The Safari Club, a concert venue and who knows what else. It was also where the original X96 studio was housed as well as X-Mart. Remember X-Mart?

Jon Smith visits the original X96 studio location, which hasn’t been occupied since the 90’s.  Let’s just say that it’s not in the best shape, and it seems that won’t change soon. We were met with hostile squatters, blood on the walls, human waste and some very creepy sights. Jon also talks to the building’s owners to find out why they don’t just demolish it.

Take a look at some X96 history in this first edition of “Seeking Salt Lake.”
