Updated: Mar 1, 2022

The Provo Advantage

When Brandon Fugal talks, Utah listens. As ABC4-TV reporter, Doug Jessop says, “it’s always good to know what the ‘keeper of the crystal ball’ has to say about Utah’s future.” It seemed only natural to ask Brandon Fugal, Chairman of Colliers International, how he would describe the Provo Advantage. Representing Freedom Commons, the first Class-A office space built in downtown Provo in 12 years, Fugal said key in this decision was Provo’s role as “the central business district in Utah County.”
