GALE STREET APARTMENTS
Salt Lake City, UT

Lowe Property Group & Q Factor
5 buildings | 580 units | 461,921 sf residential | 26,833 sf retail

This mixed-use project consists of five buildings with 580-units and 26,833 sf of retail within Type IIIA over Type IA construction. Located in the D-2 downtown area of Salt Lake City, this project will be a catalyst for fostering the development of a sustainable urban neighborhood. The five buildings of new construction are sited to retain existing adaptive-reuse structures to create the “complete block” of old and new. The design promotes a
pedestrian-oriented development with a strong emphasis on scale in an urban context.

July 30, 2020 - A to Z Historic Reconstruction

In addition to new construction, historic restoration, and adaptive reuse mixed in with the massive project continues.
The A to Z historic produce building is the first example completed.


Salt Lake City, UT | July 30, 2020 - https://www.cbre.us/people-and-offic...-reuse-project

The Salt Lake City office of CBRE has been selected to oversee leasing of the A&Z Building, the former home of A&Z Produce and adaptive reuse project in The Post District, a $300 million master-planned neighborhood development. Scott
Wilmarth, Nadia Letey and Melina Miramontes will oversee the office leasing requirement.

The A&Z Building is a three-story office building with a garden level, totaling approximately 36,000 square feet. Renovations are already underway, and the building should be ready for occupancy in September of this year. The renovation
transforms an old produce building into a space that unites the historic nature of the structure with a modern aesthetic, featuring exposed brick and beam finishes. The A&Z Building will share an above-grade parking structure with an
adjacent building and has a surface lot that can facilitate additional future phases of development.

"The Post District is a timely development that will redefine the western perimeter of downtown's Central Business District, and the A&Z Building is the first step in this paramount undertaking" noted Nadia Letey, first vice president of CBRE.
"Careful consideration has been taken in the master plan to ensure that the needs of the neighborhood and local businesses have been addressed, including space for housing, retail, and local artist installations in addition to the planned
office space."

The A&Z Building is part of The Post District, a major renovation in the area that aims to revitalize a 14-acre region bordering downtown's Central Business District. The Post District is a $300 million master-planned neighborhood development
with 580 new residential units and over 300,000 square feet of new and redeveloped commercial space providing creative office, walkable restaurants, cafes, shops, open green space, public plazas and more. The initial office developments
are taking place on the southern block of 500 South spanning from 300 West to 400 West.

Take a tour of the Post District, Salt Lake City’s new mixed-use neighborhood


Taylor Anderson Reporting - Full Article @ https://buildingsaltlake.com/take-a-...EMAIL_CAMPAIGN


January 17, 2023

...They call it the Post District, a new brand created precisely because it sits in an area that became left out and disregarded from other fabric in the city.

In a quick few years, the area between 500 South and 600 South and 300 West heading westward has risen from overlooked wasteland to a master-planned district that brings life where there was largely none in recent memory...



...Vacant land and warehouses have been redeveloped into a mix of retrofitted buildings and new mid-rises that now greet suburbanites as they enter the capital city by car from the west or move out from the east.

It’s largely thanks to work by a set of local developers and the area’s status as an opportunity zone, a designation created by a 2017 federal tax law that offers tax incentives to investors who spend capital gains on real estate.

BCG Holdings, a company owned by Brandon Blaser, is working alongside Sugar House-based Lowe Property Group, as well as Bridge Investment Group, on five of 10 new buildings that make up the residential portion of the Post District. Q Factor and Drumbeat, the teams leading the creation of Industry SLC to the south, joined BCG and Bridge to work on several others...





...Rather than one-off buildings scattered across town, what stands out about the Post is the speed at which hundreds of new units and space for multiple on-site retail and commercial outlets is coming online in a concentrated area...

...The buildings in the Post District are well-appointed with spaces that allow for sweeping views of Downtown and the Wasatch Mountains. Like many new urban buildings, they include things like fitness areas, rooftop pools, and grilling areas.

But the Post doesn’t ignore the ground floors for people who choose to visit. In addition to Level Crossing and Urban Hill, Blaser said the group is preparing to announce the arrival of another new restaurant that will be the second U.S. location for the unnamed spot...

Updates - The Alta Terra Project - Sugar House District - Under Construction


Update: https://www.sugarhousecouncil.org/co...tion-projects/
This two-part project is now under construction with foundations completed, and the structure is rapidly taking shape on the south site. The north site has now been fully excavated and will soon begin installing foundations. Vehicle/pedestrian access is currently restricted to the east end of Ashton Ave. The sidewalk along the frontage of the south side property will be closed for safety due to the heavy truck and machinery traffic entering and leaving the project and adjacent staging area.


Taylor Anderson Reports:10-story building approved in Sugar House - Full Article @ BuildingSaltLake:
https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/10-...EMAIL_CAMPAIGN)


Quote:
January 27,2022, Taylor Anderson for BuildingSaltLake.com - The Planning Commission approved the second in a pair of buildings coming to the southern end of the Sugar House urban core.

The commission approved the Alta Terra building, which will continue the buildout of what is known formally as the neighborhood’s business district, but which should be recognized as the area with the densest housing outside Downtown.

Alta Terra would bring 228 homes in a 10-story building at 1121 East Ashton, immediately east of Fairmont Park. The building will include space for retail in its ground floor, and the building will top 100 feet total.

Its sibling will be built across Ashton, bringing another 118 homes in a 94-foot building on what had been a vacant surface parking lot. That project was separated for administrative reasons and has already been approved.

In all, the pair will bring 346 new homes of various sizes to the neighborhood, which has nearly 2,000 apartments under construction or very recently completed.
Note: The Alta Terra will be replacing a parking lot and single-story structures, including a large 24-Hour Fitness Gym.

Theater Tower Watch - Site Demolition Complete and Awaiting Construction Startup

Photo By Atlas


Downtown - Updated Renderings for the Upcoming Pantages Tower Released


Copy Excerpts By Taylor Anderson @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/bui...citys-skyline/

New owners have released renderings detailing another building that will alter the capital city skyline.

The development will continue the ongoing and rapid addition of housing into Salt Lake City’s Downtown core, adding 400 apartments in a 31-story building that’s just shy of 400 feet tall...

...Hines previously has released conceptual drawings showing a 31-story tower with 300 units. The new documents submitted as a design review application for permission to build, provide many more details about what will be coming to the
100 South block of Main Street.

The apartments will include studios plus one- and two-bedroom units. Five penthouse suites will exist on the 31st floor.

40 of the new apartments will be affordable under the property transfer agreement the City Council, acting as the Redevelopment Agency Board of Directors, created in 2020. The affordable makeup includes 31 studio units,
five one-bedroom apartments, and four two-bedrooms, each with less space than their market-rate counterparts.

Affordable was defined as those making between 60-80% AMI, which in Salt Lake County would be up to between about $39,000 and $49,250...

...A new space being added, which is a park on top of a three-story parking garage and public plaza separating the new building from the Kearns Building on the south next door

It appears the park will be open to the public willing to trek up to it.

Pantages Park, whose name is an homage to the theater the building will replace, will sit on top of the parking garage that will include 261 stalls on four levels (one underground) that are accessed from 100 South or West Temple.

The park will be accessible by stairs fronting Main Street through an “open, landscaped, wide-corridor plaza.”

“The tower, and associated residential lobby entry, is also set back from Main Street (~10 ft), aiding in massing relief to the street wall and providing directional cues to pedestrian circulation towards the corridor plaza and public park,”
the developer wrote.

The corridors and park space are attempts to ensure the public is well-served and the building adds to the high walkability of Main Street at an important spot near the burgeoning Regent Street.

The 24-foot ground-floor level will have 8,400 square feet for retail, plus a lobby and leasing office.

The Lusso Phase I under construction and now the Lusso 2


Lusso Apartments


Address: 1025 W North Temple - A combined 278 market rate residential units.

The Lusso two-building residential project has joined the growing train of proposed and active construction along the North Temple transit corridor in Salt Lake City

Located at 1025 West, the SW corner of 10th West and North Temple will be completely transformed by the two structures of the Lusso apartments. It will bring a combined 278 market-rate units to the Euclid/Poplar Grove neighborhood, replacing the Panda Buffet building + parking lot and seven single-family structures to the south on Learned Avenue. Also, with the addition of Lusso Phase II, the 'El Asedero' Mexican Restaurant + parking lot is being replaced


Phase I Renderings

Downtown Update - Block 200 Conversion & Re-use Project


Taylor Anderson Reports - Full Article @ https://buildingsaltlake.com/downtow...s-latest-plan/

A hulking data center that has long created a pedestrian dead zone at 205 E. 200 S. would find a new life as a mixed-use building with space for hundreds of units under a forthcoming proposal.

The building’s Seattle-based owners talked with Building Salt Lake about the concept, which involves retrofitting the existing 350,000-square-foot building and adding a new eight-story structure on the property’s north end.


The proposal, the second announcement of a major conversion of a Downtown building in recent months, would bring 400 new rental units to the market and 10,000 square feet of retail in a building that would be unique in the market for a number of reasons. First of which is its 50,000-square-foot base.

“Initially, when you look at the building you think, ‘50,000-square-foot plate doesn’t scream multifamily at first blush,’” said Ned Carner, chief investment officer with Unico Properties. “We’re excited about it because you have this ability to create super unique units.”

Because of the existing layout of the building, which includes ceilings as tall as 19 feet, about half of the new units would be two stories. The ceiling heights in the other half are 17 feet and just shy of a two-story footprint. Those will have 17-foot tall ceilings, which is unheard of cubic space in most new-builds today. (For context, most new units often have 9-10-foot ceilings.)

“You kind of think about gutting the building down to a concrete shell and just rebuilding it,” Carner said. “We’re going to have a very, very well amenitized building.”

While the structure is only six stories above grade, the building reaches the same heights as some 12- or 13-story buildings and is considered a high-rise at 120 feet tall.

On top of that existing building is room for an acre of amenities. Renderings show a pool on the west side of the building, about half way up.

Units above the third floor will have spacious patios, said Gina Pfingston, a manager of investments and development at Unico.

“Those units have these patios that are so large they kind of feel like backyards,” Pfingston said. “We’ll have some turf and pavers. It’s going to have a kind of condo home feel to it.”

North of the existing building, on the site of a current surface parking lot, Unico plans to build an eight-story apartment building.

The conversion will help to anchor what has been a dead zone in the city’s urban core. The data center has long been one of two dead corners at the intersection.

Downtown Update - 218 West Broadway

Address: 218 West 300 South

The Basics: 7 floors + rooftop level. 88'-4" tall. 46 residential units. approx. 820 sq. feet of ground-floor retail. Architect: Axis Architects.


Project Rendering


Project Description (from developer):

The 218 W Broadway Apartments is a new boutique mixed-use project located on 218 W and 300 South, in the heart of downtown. The Broadway district is the center of the city’s entertainment district, with a mix of theaters, restaurants, and clubs. It is animated by its dynamic and unique street activity. Our project aligns with the Broadway District initiatives and promotes walkability as well as Urban density to help develop the downtown plan vision. In response to the major population growth that Utah is experiencing, this project will provide additional residential density and create a nexus for sustainable urban living, commerce, and cultural life in downtown Salt Lake City.

With its minimal and iconic architecture, this building will add to the fabric of the city and will reflect the vision of a strong and vibrant downtown. The livability of this area will be improved by providing additional housing units and commercial space and removing the old defunct dry cleaner. Our project will bring multiple housing choices, which aligns with the downtown plan. It is located on a very active intersection which will promote activity and bring life into this area of downtown.

The building façades are oriented towards 300 S, 200W, as well as the alley to the North to respond to the unique site conditions. The façade design is visible on all 3 sides by pedestrians as well as vehicular traffic. The 300 S façade includes ample glazing along the street level which helps activate the fourteen-foot-tall storefronts to encourage pedestrian interaction and visual interest. The upper levels contain the residences, which consist of junior-one bedrooms as well as two-story lofts on the top floor.

The building mass has been divided into a grid system that is both simple and elegant. The angled walls provide privacy to the units and allow different viewing angles. The façade essentially expresses outside the viewing apertures that are available to each residence from the inside. The grid brings organization to the façade and reduces its elements to a human scale. From the inside, the grid allows for an intimate experience of the City in each dwelling unit. The main façade is facing South and provides expansive mountain views, while the North façade opens views of the downtown skyline. The building consists of high-quality durable materials which help add to the character of the Architecture. The Large volume will be constructed of fiber cement board panels and glass. The lower commercial volume will be clad in a perforated metal façade to help create interest during the daytime as well as the night.

The 218 W Apartments will add a unique character to this City block and will help strengthen the connection between the Broadway and the central business district. Our project allows direct access from 200 West which will also augment the pedestrian and traffic flow from Poplar court. This will help the flow of traffic through the inside of the block and will help improve the alleyway conditions on the Northside of our site.

Downtown Update - Lotus Republic


Luke Garrott Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/80-...cs-urban-core/

East Downtown will soon see new residential construction along the South Temple – 100 South corridor. At 25 South 300 East, Lotus Republic will add 80 market-rate apartments to what may already be the densest residential area in the state.
The News Spy

The podium + 5 story mixed-use building will house 56 micro (460 sf) and 24 1-bdrm (740 sf) units. The project provides 80 parking stalls for a 1 : 1 ratio.

On the ground floor, 1168 sf of retail space will house the Republic Taphouse.

It will replace the former single-story Utah College of Massage Therapy and more recently Cortiva Institute building. Think Architecture of Sandy is the architect.

Update - University of Utah Rio Tinto Mechanical Engineering Building - 'Phase III' Completed

It's already a really cool building and I'm excited to see the program and facility continue to grow.

The Phase III addition will add more than 22,800 sq. ft. to the existing complex. Phases I and II, completed in 2015, created a modern, sustainable, LEED Gold-certified home for the Department of Mechanical Engineering. During construction, the mechanical and structural elements were put in place for a four-story addition that will essentially "infill" the center of the building. Approximately 6,000 square feet at the ground level of the addition will be programmed for an innovation lab with instructional space, building bay, and maker space with laser cutters, 3-D printers and other equipment needed to take student projects from concept to completion. A variety of naming opportunities are available for this project as well.

Rendering outlining the addition of Phase III

The now completely renovated Rio Tinto Kennecott Mechanical Engineering Building at the University of Utah goes well beyond the adage of “what’s old is new again.”
The completely remodeled building is not just bigger and newer, it’s also much safer, more energy efficient, and the latest example of the U’s efforts to build one of the most sustainable campuses in the country.

University of Utah President David W. Pershing and College of Engineering Dean Richard B. Brown express their gratitude to Rio Tinto Kennecott and alumni of the engineering college for their support of the four-year construction project, which turned the 62-year-old building at 1495 E. 100 South into one of the safest and most sustainable structures on the U campus.

“As I walked through the new Rio Tinto Kennecott Mechanical Engineering Building, it’s hard to even imagine its former incarnation,” Brown said.

The $24 million renovation has become the new home for the college’s mechanical engineering department with nearly 60 offices, 11 student study areas, six conference rooms, and 12 research labs. The project was completed using all non-state and private funds, including a lead gift from Rio Tinto Kennecott.

The University of Utah engineering school gets $50 million and a new name
A new 'Computing and Engineering Building' and scholarships are coming to the John and Marcia Price College of Engineering.


https://www.sltrib.com/news/2023/01/...chool-gets-50/



Utah philanthropists John and Marcia Price put the University of Utah’s College of Engineering in the driver’s seat Tuesday with a $50 million donation that will fuel scholarships and a new building.

The Utah businessman and his wife had earlier committed $15 million from the Price Family Foundation toward construction of a new building for its nationally recognized computer science school. That later grew to be the largest donation the engineering school has ever received, and one of the largest ever on the U. campus

The announcement was made Tuesday afternoon at the U.’s Warnock Engineering Building in a ceremony attended by Gov. Spencer Cox, U. President Taylor Randall and Utah legislative leaders.

“The University of Utah has an international reputation for innovation in engineering and computer science. Marcia and I want to help ensure that opportunity for this and future generations,” said John Price.

“This is going to cause another inflection point in the ascent of the college and the growth of Utah’s booming technology sector,” said U. Engineering Dean Richard Brown.

Randall said the gift means the U. is joining the “elite” group of schools that have named colleges of engineering.

“We need more engineers. We desperately need more engineers,” said Cox, who called it a “red letter day” for Utah....

Downtown Update - Redevelopment, Seismic Upgrades, Renovation and Restoration of Historic Temple Square Campus Continues. Timeline and 2023 Updates Below

Current Temple Square setup. Note in upcoming plans how the structures fronting the Temple at the north and south will be demolished and replaced in different positions in their relationship to the Temple itself. The more modern structures that now front the Temple on both sides will be removed and new structures with a more historic vibe will be constructed to the sides of the Temple. This will open up the iconic structures approach. Landscaping and water features will also be redeveloped, again affording the historic Temple improved site lines. Also, a significant part of the redevelopment will be subterranean structures and seismic upgrades.

Church President Russell M. Nelson announced the pioneer-era temple will close December 29, 2019, and will remain closed for approximately four years while undergoing a major structural and seismic renovation. The temple is expected to reopen in 2024 with a public open house.

“This project will enhance, refresh, and beautify the temple and its surrounding grounds,” said President Nelson. “Obsolete systems within the building will be replaced. Safety and seismic concerns will be addressed. Accessibility will be enhanced so that members with limited mobility can be better accommodated.”

The surrounding area on Temple Square and the plaza near the Church Office Building will also be affected as existing buildings are demolished and the area undergoes renovation and restoration. The existing annex and temple addition on the north side, which were built in the 1960s to add needed support facilities and more sealing (marriage) rooms, will be demolished and rebuilt.

Downtown Update - The Worthington Tower Watch Timeline

Taylor Andersen Reporting - Full Article @
https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/sal...ne-on-the-way/

...The tower that will replace the existing Broadway Place will be 31 stories tall. It will bring 359 residential units to the area on 26 of the 31 stories, leaving 5,800 square feet of space for ground-floor retail and 359 parking stalls on four stories above ground...

...The Worthington Tower “builds on the vision of community leaders who developed the goals of programs like ‘Downtown Rising’ and is one step forward in ensuring Salt Lake City remains the primary cultural, financial, legal and government center of Utah,” Matt Lusty, a representative of the group, told Building Salt Lake on Wednesday.

It will continue two ongoing trends Downtown: new, skyline-altering skyscrapers, and an impending swell of people living in the city center...



The new tower on the northeast corner of 300 South 200 East will replace a
one-story building and local retailers with a 31-story residential building. Rendering courtesy of Worthington.

Downtown Update - Astra Watch Timeline



...This construction project will bring what has been billed as the state’s tallest tower thus far, adding hundreds of high-end luxury rental apartments in the Downtown core.

At approx. 448 feet, the Astra Tower would inject 380 units into the core of Downtown, across from the Gallivan Center. It is one of over a dozen new high-rise projects in various stages of the development pipeline and or construction in the downtown area.

Update - Colony B Micro Units - Light Rail Adj. - The Ballpark District


Luke Garrott Reporting - Full Article @
https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/aff...-next-to-trax/

Non-profit housing developers are nearly set to begin construction on a 140-unit, five-story micro-unit apartment project at 228 W 1300 South in Salt Lake City, directly adjacent to the Ballpark (1300 South) Trax station.

Called Colony B, the $21 million building will offer 106 of its units at “deeply affordable” rates, between 25-50% AMI.

For a resident making 25% AMI, a studio (324 sf) will rent at $351/mo and 1-bdrm (520 sf) at $359. At 50% AMI, those rents are $736 (studio) and $792 (1-bdrm).

34 of the building’s units will rent at market rate.

Update, South Central - City Loft Apts. - Light Rail Adj. - Under Construction


Taylor Anderson Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/gra...using-project/


File Article - The urbanization of 1700 South in Ballpark in recent years is set to continue with another project that would replace an industrial warehouse with 237 rental housing units. The five-story building would replace multiple industrial buildings adjacent to the UTA TRAX line, though there’s no station stopping the light-rail trains that will pass the new housing. Ballpark residents could see changes quickly. The developer, Wasatch Residential Group, has received permits to both demolish six industrial buildings and start construction. Once built, the new apartments will join the rush of new apartments and owner-occupied townhomes recently built near 1700 South Main Street in Ballpark. This will be the highest-density project of the bunch...


Pictured, former buildings now demoed along TRAX Light-Rail line, Courtesy BuiildingSaltLake.com


...Preliminary drawings for the 1700 South Apartments appear to show a building set back 10 feet from the street. The longest facade will run along the TRAX line between 1700 South and Harris Avenue to the north. A new fire road will run from an existing curb cut on the property’s west side and curve past three internal courtyards until it reaches Harris. The drawings show a parking garage entrance located within the property.

Downtown South - Update, The Slate and the Sloane Projects - Under Construction



August 17, 2021

Taylor Anderson Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/bui...s-main-street/

Central 9th continues its rapid march toward urbanization with the latest ground-breaking this week that will continue framing out the neighborhood’s main street along 900 South.

The demolition this week of the former Henries Dry Cleaners comes after years of delay due to contamination and delays from dealing with the state and may have overshadowed progress next door.

The parcels between 200 West and Washington Street (~250 West) have been a crucial underutilized space in what has otherwise become a fast-growing urban neighborhood on the fringe of Downtown. That began to change this week
with the demolition of a burned-out building and the ground-breaking of two separate but related projects.

The two projects will not only bring space for hundreds more people living in the small neighborhood, but they’ll also expand the growing retail and dining space that already makes Central 9th a space worth visiting on par with 9th & 9th and other small retail-led neighborhoods in Salt Lake City.

The ground-breaking along Washington marks the beginning of the Slate, a mixed-use project that will be the first built and over the coming 1.5 years. It will bring a five-story mixed-use project near the 900 South 200 West TRAX station.

The Slate will add 150 new units with ground-floor retail space to continue the neighborhood’s build-out. It will be the first of what will become two buildings between 200 West and Washington Street in the next two to three years.

Slate makes up what may become the western boundary of multiple developments between 200 West and Washington Street. East of the alley is the burned-out shell of a former Henries Dry Cleaners... (Site is now remediated and the construction of The Sloane is progressing).



The Slate - 150-unit mixed-use apartment project adjacent to the Central Ninth TRAX station in Salt Lake City.
19 studio apartments - 115 one-bedroom apartments - 18 two-bedroom apartments - 58 parking stalls - 22 bike spaces - 3,530 square feet of ground-level restaurant and commercial space.

Update, Under Construction And Adjacent To The Slate Project Is The Sloane Project


Taylor Anderson Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/bui...s-main-street/

Next door to the above Slate Project is the Sloane(formerly named 'The Sydney')...Urban Alfandre has plans for the parcel that had been held up by the Department of Environmental Quality due to ground contamination caused by the dry cleaner until this week.
Bulldozers this week demolished the cleaner, which had been severely burned at some point over the past year.

Alfandre must remediate the surrounding soil before breaking ground on that 88-unit mixed-use project, known as the Sloane.

Together, both Alfandre properties will frame an activated alleyway and continue the build-out along 900 South near the TRAX station.



The Sloane - 88-unit mixed-use brownfield redevelopment site adjacent to the Central Ninth TRAX station in Salt Lake City.
