A new 150-unit mixed-use residential rental community has broken ground near the Central Business District of Downtown Salt Lake City.
Dubbed Slate, the community is designed to be a transit-rich community that provides residents with a urban and car-free lifestyle. The project will rise five stories and include approximately 3,500 sf of ground-level restaurant and commercial space meant to encourage interaction and connectivity between residents and visitors alike.
Units will range in size from 346-sf micro units to 934 two-bedroom units intended to meet the needs of young professionals. Amenities will be located on the second story and include a courtyard with a spa, a two-level clubhouse, and fitness and wellness areas. The leasing, retail, and co-working office space are located on the street level.
“The commercial space, particularly as it extends further south on 200 West, will meet the purposes of the underlying zone by creating people-oriented places. The residential units on the upper floors are providing a housing type desired in this high-amenity area heavily served by transit,” said Nathan Sciarra, AIA, NCARB, Principal in KTGY’s Denver office, in a release. “The additional commercial space, art, and the extension of the metal panel and wall mural along the stair tower provide breaks in the façade and create visual interest.”
The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
