SALT LAKE CITY -- One of Utah's oldest commercial buildings housed wagons more than 100 years ago, and now it's undergoing a modern makeover.

The 58,000 square-foot building once housed the arts and craft store Zims, and before that, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints used it to store wagons and manufacture farming equipment.

Impact Hub Salt Lake will move in when the overhaul is finished. It's a company of entrepreneurs who will use the building as a hub for technology and networking.

Architects want to keep the unique characteristics intact, and on Friday FOX 13 News’ Tamara Vaifanua toured the building. See the video above for more details.
