Autumn Approaches In Salt Lake City's Metro Mountain Parks

Downtown - Article Update - Kensingston Tower

By Katie McKellar@KatieMcKellar1 Sep 14, 2019, 3:05pm MDT for the Deseret News - https://www.deseret.com/utah/2019/9/...nsington-tower

..."Salt Lake City in coming years is expected to see a massive building boom, particularly when it comes to skyscrapers...“Kensington Tower will set the stage for a
live/work/play concept and will rival other major metropolitan areas across the country, helping Salt Lake City recruit new professional talent and attract top companies to Utah,”


SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City is poised to get another addition to its already fast-growing skyline — and this high-rise would shatter the city’s height record.

If approved, it will replace Carl’s Jr. restaurant at 75 E. 200 South. Towering at a total of 448 feet with 39 floors of luxury apartments, the proposed Kensington Tower at the corner of State Street and 200 South will bring Salt Lake City and Utah to new building heights if it wins approval from city officials.

“It will be the tallest building not just in Salt Lake, but the entire state,” said Molly Robinson, planning manager in the city’s planning division. “That’s pretty exciting. And the fact that it’s almost fully residential is even more amazing.”

Robinson said even city planners were “surprised” to see the proposed height, not knowing the developers — Boston-based Kensington Investment Company Inc. and architect HKS Inc. — would be so ambitious to reach for new heights with a residential building.

“We kind of expect our tallest buildings to be office space,” Robinson said. “That it will be 39 floors of luxury apartments — wow!”

Salt Lake City’s skyline. Salt Lake City Planning Commission

Salt Lake City’s current tallest building — the Wells Fargo Center — stands at 422 feet, which is 2 feet taller than the Church Office Building of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Under Salt Lake City’s new design review process, any height request above 375 feet in downtown’s Central Business District requires approval from the Salt Lake City Planning Commission. The Kensington Tower is expected to come before the commission in coming months, Robinson said.


“Poised to become one of Salt Lake City’s most coveted addresses, the Kensington Tower will revolutionize downtown living in Salt Lake City while expanding the downtown skyline,” designers wrote in a project narrative submitted to Salt Lake City’s planning department.

Kensington Tower would feature nearly 680,000 square feet of luxury apartments, a six-level parking structure, an “outdoor urban park,” a clubhouse, a fitness center, a work lounge with conference rooms, a rooftop pool next to a spa and wellness center, a 4,000-square-foot roof terrace with “panoramic views” of the Wasatch Front, and exclusive sky lounge access for penthouse residents, according to planning documents.

The building would be 412 feet, plus an additional 36 feet for a high-speed elevator and mechanical equipment penthouse, according to planning documents.

The tower will feature 380 units, including studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments, which will be “crowned with two levels of exclusive penthouse units,” according to a narrative of the project. It will also feature 40,000 square feet of communal amenities on three different floors to “create a unique vertical urban community,” designers wrote.

Designers also say the tower will feature an “extensive amenity program” with “unparalleled service support,” including 24-hour concierge, package delivery, dry cleaning services, a pet spa and other services “that will make the urban living experience convenient and uniquely luxurious.”

“Kensington Tower will set the stage for a live/work/play concept and will rival other major metropolitan areas across the country, helping Salt Lake City recruit new professional talent and attract top companies to Utah,” designers wrote in the planning documents.

Additionally, developers seek to make Kensington Tower an “exemplar steward of the environment.” Designers say the project will aim to “minimize its carbon footprint” through design, construction and operations and will promote electric vehicles and bicycle share programs. It will also seek LEED Gold Certification for design and construction.

Developers will also explore using “photovoltaic vertical fins” — or new type of solar technology along the side of the building” — with the goal to produce enough solar energy for lighting in all public and communal areas, designers wrote.

Salt Lake City in coming years is expected to see a massive building boom, particularly when it comes to skyscrapers. Utah’s capital’s skyline is poised to add at least six high-rise projects that are in planning or slated to begin construction. The Kensington Tower is the latest proposal, preceded by a 375-foot skyscraper proposed to replace the old Utah Theater.

Salt Lake City residents and visitors can expect a snarl of construction in coming years in the heart of downtown. If approved, the Kensington Tower will be just across the street from a 262-foot, 270-unit residential tower called Liberty Sky at 151 S. State and barely a block away from a 395-foot office building named Tower 8 coming to 95 S. State, directly west of the Harmons grocery store.

Robinson said the site of the Carl’s Jr. drive-thru is a fitting spot for a new Salt Lake skyscraper, right on the east edge of the downtown core and a desirable address for people wanting to live or work in Utah’s capital.

Because of its special height request, Robinson said the city’s new design review process, automatically sending additional height requests to the Planning Commission, will allow more “public scrutiny” for projects like Kensington Tower, noting taller buildings have a “larger impact in a variety of ways on our city” in both scale and housing density.

“This particular project is going to be such a visible contribution to our skyline,” Robinson said. “That has impacts on the image and quality of the city that we want to project beyond just Salt Lake City, but this is an addition to the postcard picture of downtown.”

The project hasn’t yet been scheduled for consideration in front of the Planning Commission, but Robinson said it’s expected in coming months.

Update, Sugar House District - Sugar Alley


Sugar Alley is a 186-Unit mixed-use development located in Salt Lake City’s prestigious Sugarhouse District. Class A amenities will be accompanied with 17,332 square feet of ground floor retail.


Rendering of the Eastern side of Sugar Alley as seen from Highland Drive. If you look in the upper right corner, you can see their other proposed project, Dixon Place, though in real life it wouldn't be visible from this angle, as the under construction Sugarmont Apartments would block that view.

This is a map from the cancelled Dixon Building project, so replace the 'Proposed Dixon Building' with the new Sugar Alley project. I thought it might help people 'get their bearings,' so to speak. The 'proposed apartment building' in the upper left side is the under-construction Sugarmont Apartment building.

Downtown Update - Garden Lofts - Under Constrluction


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/aff...al-garden-inn/

The site of an aging motel will soon be the home of downtown Salt Lake’s next affordable housing development. Demolition work has started on the Royal Garden Inn at the 100 West block of 600 South to make way for construction of the Garden Lofts Apartments, a proposed 272 unit affordable housing development.

Garden Lofts will be third downtown adjacent, work-force housing project by Wasatch Residential Group. The developers also built the Providence Place at the 300 East block of 100 South and the 600 Lofts at the southwest corner of the 600 South and State Street intersection.

All of the project’s 272 units will be reserved for residents earning 60 percent AMI (Area Median Income). The units will be a mix of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, the bulk of which will be one and two bedroom apartments. Rents will range between $725 for studio units to $1,065 for the three-bedroom units.

The Lofts will replace the two-story Royal Garden Inn on a 3.18-acre parcel that is completely surrounded by mid-rise hotels.

Dust is newly stirring up on the block directly south of the Arena in West Downtown. The PaperBox Lofts, a project of Clearwater Homes and PEG Development, is clearing its inner block-long site
for construction. The developers are in final arrangements with the city for building permits, and expect construction to take 18-22 months...

It looks like the block is set to become even more dense. Clearwater hopes to submit designs for an 85 foot,
140 unit residential project to the city soon enough for a late 2019 construction start.

Salt Lake City’s newest project, the Paper Box Lofts, will include 195 apartments and an ‘automobile vending machine’


https://www.sltrib.com/news/2019/03/...-citys-newest/
Developers began Tuesday to convert an old mid-block industrial site in downtown Salt Lake City into a project known as Paper Box Lofts, which will have three residential high rises, retail spaces, a visually
striking open plaza and a unique automated parking system.

Officials with Utah-based ClearWater Homes and PEG Development broke ground on the 1.99-acre property at about 340 West 200 South, just south of the Utah Jazz’s Vivint Smart Home Arena. When done,
the project will include 195 apartments.

Under an agreement with the city’s Redevelopment Agency, which has helped subsidize the project, developers will keep 36 apartments affordable to residents making 60 percent of the area median income.


Sixty percent of the area median income would be $31,700 in annual earnings for an individual, $36,200 for a household of two people and $40,700 for a household of three, according to data from Salt lake City.

With its affordable housing, new parking, green space and midblock pedestrian walkways, Mayor Jackie Biskupski said Paper Box Lofts “will benefit our whole community.”

The project is also expected to extend the city’s downtown core further westward and improve pedestrian access from the traditional downtown to The Gateway. Salt Lake City-based ClearWater and PEG,
based in Provo, said the first residences of Paper Box Lofts are expected to be completed by spring of 2021.

Officials with ClearWater and PEG praised the help provided by city officials and the RDA in overcoming challenges with the property’s long, rectangular shape in designing what ClearWater CEO Micah Peters called
“a multifamily project we haven’t seen in this city before.”

Downtown’s latest housing project draws its name from Utah PaperBox, a privately owned packaging company founded in 1914 that occupied the site until it relocated in 2013 to new headquarters
at 920 South 700 West.

The PaperBox property, which is adjacent to a light-rail station, runs the east-west length of that block and has frontage on both 300 West and 400 West, giving it the equivalent of “two front yards,”
according to city documents.

One of those, the development’s east frontage on 300 West, will feature an open plaza with prominently displayed public art, serving “as a type of ‘calling card’ or ‘stamp’ for the entire project by providing
an engaging and colorful mural” painted on the side of its main parking structure, city documents say.

ClearWater and PEG have contracted with VCBO Architecture in Salt Lake City for design of the PaperBox project. Rimrock Construction is the builder.

The project is a leap forward for the Depot District, a westside area spanning Salt Lake Central Station and land west of The Gateway and designated by the city as blighted and in need of redevelopment.

ClearWater and PEG say the Paper Box Lofts’ first building, on 300 West, will have 95 residential units, and the second, on 400 West, will have 85 units. The third, smaller structure will have four residences.

Nearly half those will be one bedrooms, with the rest studio and two-bedroom apartments. Up to 14 units in the larger buildings will provide both working and living space, known as live-work or flex apartments.

Paper Box Lofts will also boast roughly 146 parking stalls, with about 96 of stalls those built into a large, multi-level parking structure designed to automatically stack and retrieve cars dropped off by their drivers.

Peters likened the system to “an automobile vending machine” that will essentially stack cars seven levels high. This is thought to be the first time such an automated parking system, made by an Oakland
company called CityLift, has been deployed in Salt Lake City.

Councilwoman Amy Folwer, who is also chair of the RDA board, called the new system “incredibly exciting” and said it could help the city meet a range of parking needs downtown.

ClearWater Homes has built several recent projects in the downtown area near the PaperBox site, including Broadway Lofts, just north of Pioneer Park, and Paragon Station, a 38-unit luxury condominium project
just south of the Utah PaperBox site.

PEG Development is owner and developer of two new hotels, Hyatt House and Marriott Courtyard, north of the PaperBox parcel, as well as the Milagro Apartments, at the southwest corner of 200 West and
200 South.

FCC names Salt Lake City one of two US cities to test 5G

2 KUTV - https://kutv.com/news/local/fcc-name...ies-to-test-5g


Salt Lake City is now at the center of helping develop one of the world's newest technologies. Wednesday,

SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) — Salt Lake City is now at the center of helping develop one of the world's newest technologies. Wednesday, the Federal Communications Commission announced Salt Lake as one of two test beds to develop 5G.

Salt Lake and New York City are the only two cities in the country the FCC has designated innovation zones to test 5G.

“I think it's going to be pretty cool, it's going to make some big changes in the world,” said Dan Young, a technology expert and owner of PC Laptops.

Salt Lake's innovation zone is about four square miles over three connected areas, including the University of Utah and part of downtown.

Telecom companies will test the technology here and study the data collected to tweak 5G.

“Normally, you could have like 100,000 within one kilometer, right. Now, with 5G, you can have a million users within that same kilometer,” Young said.

5G will be used by governments, businesses and individuals.

In Utah, “there are more computers per household and technology items than almost any other state in all of the country, so what a perfect test place for this new technology,” Young said.

A team at the University of Utah is running the project. They installed towered nodes on buildings all over the testing area that will eventually connect everything from toothbrushes to smart cars.

“But the cool thing here in Utah is we'll be able to test a lot of that early and see what kind of cool things we can create with it,” Young said.

Experts are not entirely sure when 5G will be rolled out to the masses, but the innovation zone starts Wednesday and will be in place for five years.

5G stands for Fifth Generation. First Generation gave us the technology to text, Second Generation introduced the web on phones, 3G allowed us to go on social media, and 4G introduced the ability to stream.




SALT LAKE CITY FASTEST-GROWING FLEXIBLE OFFICE SPACE MARKET IN US

Utah Buisness - https://www.utahbusiness.com/flexibl...-space-market/

Salt Lake City—Salt Lake City is the fastest-growing flexible office space market in the U.S., according to a new report from CBRE.

The market’s flexible-space inventory grew to 772,000 sq. ft. by the end of Q2 2019, an increase of 350,000 sq. ft., or 82.9 percent, from a year earlier. Flexible space now accounts for approximately 1.6 percent of Salt Lake’s total office inventory, up from 1.1 percent a year ago... For purposes of this report, “Salt Lake City” includes Salt Lake and Utah counties.

“A year-over-year inventory increase of nearly 83 percent is substantial, even with the understanding that flexible office space is a growing market segment that is just beginning to gain real traction in our Salt Lake,” noted Lloyd Allen, Managing Director and Principal Broker of CBRE’s Salt Lake City office. “This report makes it clear that in the greater Salt Lake market, the tech and startup industries are closely tied to the flexible office space growth. This type of office space allows companies the greatest amount of agility as they grow and adjust their business strategies.”...

I haven't heard if UTA is actually buying battery-electric buses or just testing them, but this infrastructure is permanent, which is a very good sign. .

Covering more than 2 acres of prime downtown real estate... The Exchange is a joint venture between Giv Development, a local development firm, and Domain Properties, a New York based real estate firm. Both organizations focus on building and enhancing the surrounding community, in addition to the physical development. It was designed by KTGY Architecture + Planning. As part of the City's Civic Campus, this mixed-use development will sit just east of the Salt Lake City Public Library. The Exchange is planned to include 216 market-rate and 196 affordable residential units, which will add much needed density to the area. The number of units will total 412 units. Current plans have more than 20,000 square feet of street-front retail space. This ground floor space will be anchored by an international food hall and marketplace in partnership with the International Rescue Committee’s Spice Kitchen business incubator program. Other notable features of the development will include “The Shop at Salt Lake City”, Domain’s innovative co-working and business accelerator platform. The 30,000-square foot space will offer amenities and programming aimed at stimulating entrepreneurship, small business development, and community engagement. The proposal highlights the use of art and green space and commitment to energy efficiency and will be a great addition to the Civic Campus.

Why Salt Lake City's Wasatch Front Metro has a ‘once in a generation’ opportunity unique to any other place in the world

SALT LAKE CITY — It’s an opportunity that’s been described as “once in a generation,” “unprecedented” and “unlike anything, anywhere else.”

And now, an 11-member state board begins the work of overseeing how to make the best use of the 700-acre Draper prison site set to be vacated sometime in 2022 when the new facility, currently under construction in west Salt Lake City, opens for business.

The attributes that have driven the accolades include the size of the property, its location in the center of one of the fastest-growing areas in the country — one that has also become the epicenter of Utah’s booming tech economy — and that the entire parcel is owned by the state. Taken together, a well-executed redevelopment plan could become one of the biggest economic leverage opportunities Utah has ever encountered, according to experts.

San Francisco-based architecture, engineering and urban planning firm HOK has worked on large-scale redevelopment projects around the world and was retained by the state as a consultant to help create a vision for how to best reutilize the prison site. Brian Jencek, HOK’s director of planning, told lawmakers last year that the chance to redevelop the prison property was a standout, even when viewed through a global lens.

“It’s Incredibly unique,” Jencek said. “I think that you’re onto something incredibly powerful here. I know of no other area where so many people are concentrated in such a tight corridor that has, suddenly, such a large available piece of land.

“What major American — even international city — of this density has such a large, contiguous developable site at the center? It just doesn’t happen.”
Jencek’s presentation came amid two years of work gathering public input, analysis and data to help create “preferred scenarios” for the prison site as well as thousands of acres of other undeveloped tracts in and around the Point of the Mountain area in south Salt Lake County and northern Utah County.

That planning scenario calls for a mix of residential, office, retail and light-industrial uses for the prison site, as well as robust, new public transit connections including light rail and bus rapid transit. The hoped-for anchor for the site would be a world-class research/educational facility that, according to a report released by the Point of the Mountain Development Commission, could become a magnet for talent and further investment.

“A nationally recognized research presence creates a ‘wow’ factor that attracts employers and employees and contains open space that is appealing and important to residents,” the report says. “Research and technology transfer also boosts job growth, as does the skilled workforce that is trained there.”...

...Consultants said a Draper prison redevelopment done right will lead to tens of thousands of jobs — located proximate to employers — housing that is both affordable and attractive to those seeking a walkable, urban neighborhood vibe and a surrounding community rife with green space and recreational opportunities...

Salt Lake rent prices still skyrocketing despite apartment construction ‘explosion’


Katie McKellar - Deseret News https://www.deseret.com/utah/2019/9/...nt-rent-prices


Construction continues on the Quattro apartment building in Salt Lake City on Friday, Sept. 20, 2019. Rents in Salt Lake County — and other counties along the Wasatch Front — are on a steep upward trajectory, according to a new report from the University of Utah’s Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute.

Downtown Update - The Morton (~250 S 200 E):


BuildingSaltLake.com - https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/con...wn-apartments/ The Morton is Seattle-based developer’s, Timberlane Partners, first new construction project and third property in Salt Lake City. The developers own the former Artspace shops on the 300 West block of Pierpont and The Mercer, a four-story 73-unit residential building on the 500 East block of 300 South.

According to the developer, the apartments will be designed with an open floor plan with floor to ceiling windows. Most of the amenities will be at the penthouse level and will include a clubroom, fitness room, yoga spaces, pet terrace and grooming room and a community rooftop terrace.

The Morton will replace a 0.63-acre surface parking lot just north of the Russon Brothers Mortuary. The $21.5 million, 120,000 square-foot project will consist of 137 residential units and 1,400 square feet of retail space. The project includes a two-story parking podium with ground-floor retail below six stories of residential space. The project will have 100 parking stalls, 0.73 parking spaces per unit, and the units will be a mix of studio and one and two-bedroom apartments.

The Morton will maximize the lot size and will be built right up to the street level and to the adjacent buildings to the north and south.

The request is found at
here.


Salt Lake City’s new convention hotel will be a 28-story tower of glass and textured aluminum bursting out on the city skyline, slim and rectangular with gently rounded edges, about 725 guest rooms and
huge digital billboards on both sides of its grand entrance on 200 South.

Scheduled to open in spring 2022. the hotel will be woven into the southeast corner of the Salt Lake Palace Convention Center on 200 s.
West Temple.

Its design echoes the Salt Palace's distinct cylindrical towers with curved ends on the hotel's vaulting guest room tower, while its spacious ground floor lobby, restaurant and corner market on 200 South will seek
to bring a sense of around-the-clock vibrancy to the downtown area.




Additional info from the planning submission document about ground floor use.

Parking will be below ground and will be connected to the already existing Salt Palace parking. The ground floor is meant to be continually engaging and thus will have the following:
1. A corner cafe/market on the corner of 200 South and West Temple with public seating area.
2. A restaurant/bar fronting West Temple.
3. Lobby entrance on West Temple between the corner market and the restaurant.
4. Drop off and parking entrance as well as another lobby entrance fronting 200 S.

Downtown Update - Quattro Apartments

Another underutilized corner of Salt Lake City’s 400 South Corridor is about to drastically change. Crews have demolished the one-story former Rent-a-Center and Papa Johns buildings to make way for the Quattro, a seven-story,95-unit mixed-use development at the northeast corner of the 400 East and 400 South intersection.

The project is by developers, Wadsworth Development Group and dbUrban Communities and was designed by IBI Group.

The Quattro will consist of a two-story concrete podium below five wood-framed floors. The project will have a mix of studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments the majority of which will be one and two-bedroom units.

The ground floor will house 2,355 square-feet of retail space, a sales office, lobby, mail room, storage area for bicycles and structured parking. The apartment and parking entrances will front 400 East, while the retail portion will front 400 South.

Floors two to seven will house the residential units and residential amenities that will include two fitness areas, two hot tubs, a fire pit, lockable storage units and a clubroom. The project will also include two amenity decks, one at the third level that will overlook 400 East and one on the seventh floor that will overlook both 400 South and 400 East. The seventh-floor deck will be partially covered and will include the hot tubs, fire pit and seating area.

Update Central Metro - Loveland Living Planet Acquarium
Nine-acre expansion will feature VR-based interactive exhibit, 7,000-seat outdoor theater,
five-story conservation center, and 165-foot-tall piece of rock ’n’ roll history.


By Court Mann for the Deseret News https://www.deseret.com/entertainmen...eland-aquarium



...The attraction? A massive stage originally used for U2’s “360° Tour,” formerly referred to as “The Claw,” which will become the centerpiece of the Draper aquarium’s outdoor plaza. Starting sometime between Monday, Sept. 23, and that following weekend, the 190-ton, 165-foot-tall stage will be erected...

...It’s been a long time coming: Loveland Aquarium broke ground for the addition last October, and it had already been in the works since late 2014/early 2015. The stage was initially scheduled to go up in fall 2018 or spring 2019. In a recent interview with the Deseret News, Andersen said the stage has undergone numerous structural modifications since it was transported to the site last winter. This includes numerous large steel frames — “and by large, I mean they weigh about 10,000 pounds each,” Andersen said — being redesigned to handle Utah’s snow loads. These modifications also involved making the structure more windproof and earthquake proof.

The plaza and its accompanying stage are phase one of the aquarium’s ongoing renovation project. As the Deseret News previously reported, phase two will be the aquarium’s expanded Science Learning Campus, which will be 80,000 square feet, with a five-story Asian cloud forest habitat. Other features will include an endangered species conservation center, interactive science stations, new indoor and outdoor animal exhibits, laboratories, classrooms and a banquet and conference center.




Underground, right beneath the former U2 stage, will be an interactive “Eco Command Center” for simulated team-building activities.

The entire new plaza, Andersen said, is currently scheduled to be completed sometime in November. He said the aquarium will host a plaza-lighting ceremony around that time, but “to open it up when there might be a foot of snow on the ground doesn’t make a whole lot of sense,” so the official plaza opening will probably happen next spring...



The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium’s new plaza stage, which previously belonged to U2 for the band’s 360 Tour, is under construction next to the aquarium in Draper on Thursday, Sept. 19, 2019.

Fairbourne Station is truly at the center of it all. It sits at the hub of a unique intermodal transportation network including freeways, public transit and high traffic roadways. This optimal positioning places Fairbourne a mere
10 minutes from the Salt Lake International Airport and downtown Salt Lake City, and just 40 minutes from several of Utah’s renowned ski resorts. By providing a multitude of reasons to visit and a wealth of ways to get here,
Fairbourne will be a destination for visitors of all types, for a variety reasons, all year-round.
