I mean, isnt there like 7000 housing units being built right now? Say an average of 2.5 people per unit and that's 17500 right there and that's just what's happening right now.

I love the additional height that this will give to the skyline, but it is this view that I love the most. The street level.

I ABSOLUTELY HATE that they are demolishing the Broadway building, Tavernacle/Peoples Coffee. That is one of the many buildings that make Broadway such a unique eclectic street within the downtown core. I agree with the sentiments of those saying much of the development in the city is shit, and lacks vision of any sort. Buy the Tavernacle building and the mortuary to the north, and transfer the allowable height from the corner to that space. They could even build almost all the way to the back of the Tavernacle buildings, provide some covered parking in that area and build a step back upwards from there to the north.

The next one to go, will be the Green Ant building directly to the west. Seriously have some vision on these developments and keep the historic fabric that made people want to live in the city to begin with.

It's all about location. It hasn't anything to do with historical value or eclectic characteristics when it comes to this strip in particular, other than personal memories experienced by an overall and overwhelmingly few. Almost nobody will remember. Just facts.

It's all about that money, man.

Hard to blame 'em.

But I don't own that property, so who am I to say?

The land the mortuary and the Tavernacle building are on and the parking lot between the two are all owned by the same entity (Worthington TPIII, LLC) per the Assessor's map. All zoned D-1. Everything to the east is zoned something else and owned by others.

These will help bring in tourism and show what the city is like.
You think we'll add 100k residents in 10 years? Not going to happen.

That said, continued multifamily development should definitely lead to a higher population. I expect, as long as the residential boom continues, population could easily be 225k by 2030.

Of course, if the west side of the city ever sees residential development, Salt Lake's population could skyrocket quickly.

You can't calculate growth that way though. It doesn't account for children moving out of their parents' houses, or other people just moving out of the city, or the fact that some of the people moving into those apartments will already live in Salt Lake City. Some of them are also replacing other single-family housing units, and those people are unlikely to move into the new apartments. Also, families are probably increasingly moving out of the city, so if say a 5-person family moves out of a house, it's unlikely the new owners of the house will be a family of 5.

Do you think that there is anything that could be done to prevent this development, or force them to reconsider allowing it to happen? If it doesn't have to be reviewed by the planning commission, I feel like it's a lost cause, but what do you think?

I'm already upset that the old In the Venue building is being replaced by an absolutely soulless, awful, stubby apartment building with minimal street interaction. These cultural spaces are being lost at an alarming rate.

Sure. The 2.5 number was an attempt to include all those variables. I have no clue. Maybe 1.5 or 2 is a better number?

I think 1.5 is likely closer to accurate. Most of the new stuff being built is either 1 bedroom or studio/micro units with fewer 2+ bedroom units.

Emigration Overlook

https://citizenportal.slcgov.com/Cit...howInspection=

12 luxury condos at the mouth of Emigration Canyon
860 S Donner Way, Salt Lake City, UT 84108
1.12 acres

I've seen this project before, so they must finally be ready to move forward with it.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Quote:
The Emigration Overlook project is the transformation an existing empty lot into a Luxury Condominium housing project. Situated on a west facing slope, the building will cascade down the hill to emphasize the unique character of the site and to minimize impact of the existing environment. The Project will also boast spectacular views from its rooftop terraces that will be full of lush landscaped public and private spaces. The carefully designed and verdant landscape will utilize native plant types to allow for low maintenance and to be drought tolerant and will minimize impact on the existing vegetation while enhancing the views from adjoining properties. The Architectural Design and landscape are simultaneously contextual and contemporary.

I had given up on this ever happening. If they're actually going through with this project then development really is going gangbusters in Salt Lake.

Bueno Avenue Apartments

https://citizenportal.slcgov.com/Cit...owInspection=#

Project Location: Approximately 129 S 700 East, Salt Lake City

Project Overview
Quote:
redevelopment property in the heart of Salt Lake City. This residential project will be an innovative apartment project for Salt Lake City. This building will be submitted as a “Rooming House” use under the zoning code. While being innovative, the character, design and public impact of the project will be consistent with a other existing uses and Multifamily Housing Developments in the area. This project will consist of 2 buildings: a single-story Amenity and Leasing Building, fronting 700 East; and the main 4-story apartment building on the interior of the site. The main a building will consist of 65 units ranging from 1 Bedroom to 4-bedroom units. These bedrooms will be individually leased to provide for attainable leases to residents, without seeking income restricted/government subsidized housing benefits. We believe that we can provide housing that has all of the amenities and high-end features as other new multifamily uses, while leasing at attainable rates for individuals at all income levels.

The project design takes into consideration the historical and existing uses surrounding this property. This is in a medium to high density area with several historic and older multifamily dwellings. Our design is intended to maintain the historic and residential feel while substantially improving the present aesthetics of this block. Our primary materials of brick, fiber cement and lap siding, in combination with traditional pitched and mansard rooflines will help this project to blend well with all of the surrounding uses.

This project will simultaneously improve the existing condition of this block and introduce much needed housing that thoughtfully meets the goals as set out in the City Masterplan.
Requested Applications


Existing Site Conditions and Surrounding Uses

Good article. I wonder how much more of these proposed projects will actually get built.

Of the ones mentioned in the article, I'd say they all have an extremely high probability of being built

I like that the Dakota Pacific, Theater Tower, and Kensington will bring a fresh design curtain to Downtown. While I like 222, 111 and, 95 S. State I think we've had enough of that window pattern. I hope we'll see that upcoming tower described at the southern end of Main as being a style akin to the NYC Bank of America design. That would be fantastic. Also, I hope the tower that will replace the Tavernacle will be a design hit. Wondering if the curse will be broken on the pending Northest corner of the 400 S. West Temple block. Now that getting underway would be a real miracle.

Right now, seeing projects like The Post District, West Quarter, Patrinely, Brinshore, and Moda Luxe actually materialize gives me a lot of enthusiasm for Salt Lakes downtown future.

To the west of Kensington Tower. It will be built on Regent Street and 200 South, where the old Eat a Burger once was.
