The temple, which was announced in April 2018 by Church President Russell M. Nelson, will be built on an 11.8-acre site located at the corner of Oak Hills Drive and Rosewood Lane in Layton City, about 25 miles north of Salt Lake City. Plans call for a three-story temple of approximately 87,000 square feet.
