The Church has released an exterior rendering depicting the intended design of the Layton Utah Temple/

The release of the rendering comes as project leaders are preparing to file additional public documents relating to plans for the temple’s design. A groundbreaking date has not been set yet.

The temple was announced in April 2018 by Church President Russell M. Nelson. It will be built at the corner of Oak Hills Drive and Rosewood Lane. Plans call for a three-story temple of more than 87,000 square feet.

Utah currently has 17 operating temples. In addition to Layton, temples have also been announced in Orem, Saratoga Springs, Taylorsville, Tooele Valley and Washington County.
