The Philadelphia temple will be built in downtown Philadelphia, at North Broad Street between Hamilton Street and Noble Street. Several other temples occupy urban sites, including those in Manhattan and Hong Kong. No designs have been completed for this temple or the others announced on Saturday.
For the temple serving the greater Kansas City area, the site will be in Clay County, Missouri, on residential land within the Kansas City limits that is already being developed by the Church. The development is known as Shoal Creek. [As the crow flies, this is about 11.5 miles from the Temple Lot in Independence, Missouri, and only 2-4 miles from Liberty Jail.]
The temple in Córdoba, Argentina, will be situated on the Belgrano meetinghouse site, next to the present mission home of the Church, and the Calgary temple will be built on Church-owned land next to an existing chapel in the northwest part of the city, at the intersection of Rocky Ridge Road and Royal Oak Road.
In Rome, the temple will occupy part of a 15-acre Church-owned site near the ring road skirting the northeast section of Rome. [As the crow flies, this is about 6.5 miles from the Vatican.]
Locations of Five New Temples Announced
The Church released new details yesterday about the five new temples that will be built, including locations. I’ve linked the approximate locations to Google Maps below. Please let me know if any of the linked maps are incorrect:
How far is the KC temple from Liberty Jail as the crow flies? It seems to be no more than a mile or two. What irony there would be if one could see the temple from Liberty Jail.
Depending on where in the Shoal Creek development the temple is going to be built, it looks like it could be from 2-4 miles from Liberty Jail. That’s pretty close, just on the other side of I-35! I’ll add that to the post.
There’s a lot of history in connection with Clay County, and most (all?) of it’s not very pleasant. at least from 1831-39. It will be interesting to see how all will play out as the temple is being built. And no, people, this does not indicate that it’s time to load up your essentials and catch the next wagon train heading to Missouri.
…nor is the prophet ready to move in to the Vatican.

I wish the LDS Church would build a small Temple in Cedar City UT, so all the people in the middle
of the state could do more work, it is hard to drive up north or to St George UT. That would be great ! We have many small towns close to Cedar City UT that could do more Temple work.
