BALLPARK NEXT PLAN
She Plays Here
Re-imagine the ballpark as a hub for locally-owned
small businesses anchored by the first women’s multi-sport venue.
A collaboration with SLC’s community conscience investor/developer groups including:
- Redevelop the adjacent properties to attract and ensure a diverse business ecosystem through on-site education, resources and skills training.
- Increase opportunities for entrepreneurs to grow their business through flexible leases, commissary kitchens, and micro spaces.
- Inclusive use for the entire neighborhood with activation 365 days per year through sports, music and cultural events.
WE BUILD COMMUNITY.
We believe in collaboration over comparison. We support diversity, we support women, we support local.
We have successfully transformed other neighborhoods in our city and have the skills and experience to do the same for this neighborhood.
Pillar 2 / Connect the Dots
CREATE A VIBRANT, WALKABLE, MIXED-USE COMMUNITY
Maven has partnered with Colmena Group and Kimball Investment Company who own 5-acres in between the Ballpark and the TRAX Station.
- Develop this property to increase pedestrian connectivity between existing public transportation, public gathering spaces, the Ballpark and the surrounding businesses.
- Shut down West Temple on special occasions to create a pedestrian festival street.
- Include rooftop space, outdoor public art, and green spaces to further activate the area.
Pillar 3 / Invest in People
COMMUNITY & COMMERCE
The year-round activation of the Ballpark will energize the retail and provide a steady stream of customers.
- Include human-centered resources to support the needs of the overall community, including: child care, personal services, libraries and civic spaces.
- The small business owners will be the nurturers of the community as they, along with the residents, will have a vested interest in this neighborhood.
- Co-locate support services for the businesses in this redevelopment so business owners have easy access to those resources. This includes space for a small business incubator, agencies that support minority-owned businesses, and other resources to make this a thriving business community.

Pillar 4 / Partner Near and Far
We have engaged with organizations from our community and across the nation who are excited to invest their resources, knowledge, and capital in revitalizing the neighborhood in concert Calle with this vision.
Pillar 5 / Creative yet Feasible
REVITALIZE, IMPROVE, ADJUST, INCORPORATE, AUGMENT IN PHASES
Economic feasibility through immediate use of existing stadium with minimal capital investment.
- It doesn’t take much to modify the current stadium to accommodate a rectangular field that supports several sports. It even leaves room for a regulation softball diamond should that be a desired use.
- Over time, upgrade the existing locker rooms and on-site facilities, however, even as they are, they are already better than anything these teams have now.
- Phase the development of the adjacent property to occur over time. As buildings come online, they can add additional retail and other uses to further activate the neighborhood.
- For greater 365 activation, add retractable roof or air-supported dome.
