New Year's Eve Video of the Mesa Arizona Temple

Strap on your seat belt and take a flight over the gorgeous green grounds of the Mesa Arizona Temple captured on the last day of the year. A wide variety of plants and trees decorate the temple block including a small grove of orange trees on the east side. The renovation is in the final stages both inside and out, though it is unknown when an open house and rededication might be held.

Location of Tallahassee Florida Temple Announced

The location of the Tallahassee Florida Temple has been announced as a 4.97-acre site at 2440 Papillon Way across from the meetinghouse on Thomasville Road. An official rendering has also been released. The single-story temple will be approximately 29,000 square feet with a center spire. A distribution center will also be constructed. Project leaders are working with City officials on preliminary plans and will soon file public documents. A groundbreaking date has not been set yet.

Making Quick Work of the Brasília Brazil Temple

Major progress has been made at the Brasília Brazil Temple site in the three and a half months since the groundbreaking was held. The majority of the temple foundation and has been installed, and the structural framing is well underway for the east wing of the meetinghouse and the main floor of the two-story accommodation center.

Preparing for Church Office Building Grounds Renovation

A construction fence has been installed around the plaza in front of the 28-story Church Office Building at Temple Square in preparation for a grounds renovation that will place greater emphasis on the international presence of the Church and improve the visitor experience. The Salt Lake Temple, located west of the Church Office Building, has been under renovation for just over a year. In that time, the South Visitors' Center, sealing room addition, and north annex buildings have all been demolished. The tower finials, capstone, and angel Moroni statue have been temporarily removed while shoring progresses on all sides of the temple to prepare for deep excavation. The stone foundation footings have been strengthened and consolidated.
