Salt Lake City, downtown booming, brushes off conservative image -

Dynamic neighborhoods and high-rise living play against stereotypes of Utah’s capital - By Patrick Sisson
https://www.curbed.com/2018/3/20/171...ent-hot-market

It’s a proven formula for real estate success: Combine a thriving tech scene and downtown development with enviable access to nature, and residential property will boom...

...For those unfamiliar with Salt Lake City, Utah’s capital seems like an unlikely pick as an up-and-coming metro. Outside of assumptions about its conservatism, owing to its position as the seat of the Mormon church, Salt Lake City may offer only one frame of reference for those unfamiliar with Utah urbanism: a unique grid system, known as the Plat of Zion, that resulted in massive, oversized city blocks.

Those seeing Salt Lake City for the first time today would find a city, and downtown, starting to hit its stride. By many measures, Salt Lake City isn’t merely catching up with its peers, it’s booming. The Urban Land Institute ranked it the nation’s third-best market for commercial development in its 2018 Emerging Trends report, fueled in part by the big names relocating here (Goldman Sachs’s second-largest U.S. office is in town).

A booming regional tech economy, dubbed Silicon Slopes, includes homegrown firms valued at more than a billion dollars total, as well as offices for big names such as Adobe, Twitter, and Electronic Arts. Literally and figuratively adding runway to the region’s economic growth, a $3.6 billion airport renovation will open in 2020...

..The city seems to have hit critical mass. Salt Lake County, which includes Salt Lake City, is forecast to add nearly 600,000 new residents by 2065, according to a University of Utah study, a 50 percent growth rate.

“Compare it to Portland, Seattle, LA, and San Francisco, where everything has become expensive,” says Dave Ward, a developer at the Boyer Company, a partner in Liberty Sky. “Comparatively, Salt Lake City is easy to get around, has tremendous outdoor recreation options, and people can live near where they work. When you look at the quality of life and the ability to further a good career, Salt Lake has a pretty compelling argument.”

Salt Lake City continues to lead multifamily and industrial growth


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article Reports - Full Article @
https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/sal...strial-growth/

The Wasatch Front’s unprecedented growth in the multifamily and industrial markets should continue in 2018 according to CBRE‘s annual Salt Lake City Real Estate Market Outlook report. The publication highlights the performance of the local commercial real estate market during 2017 and provides insights into expectations for the year to come.

The report’s authors note that in 2018 a record number of multifamily units will be added to the market...The industrial market, especially in the Northwest Quadrant area is experiencing historic growth. According to the CBRE report, the number of new leases signed for buildings over 100,000 square feet nearly tripled the historical average. The report’s authors argued that the region’s industrial market shows no foreseeable signs of softening in the next year.

Salt Lake City is the greatest regional contributor to not just the industrial growth but the multifamily market as well. The report’s authors estimate that 8,099 multifamily units will open in 2018 in the state’s largest four counties, Weber, Davis, Salt Lake and Utah. Building Salt Lake estimates that Salt Lake City will account for 35 percent of those new units, with around 2,827 slated for completion in 2018. In comparison, Salt Lake City only accounts for just over 8 percent of the four counties’ combined population.

The Wasatch Front’s 4 percent rental vacancy will continue to drive new multifamily construction in 2018. CBRE authors estimate that there are 11,222 units under construction, Building Salt Lake estimates that Salt Lake City accounts for 33 percent of those units, with 3,646 units underway. Salt Lake’s share of under-construction units could increase this year as an additional 3,595 units are slated to start construction by 2019...


2018 Tailwinds

- Utah’s population was the third-fastest growing in the nation in 2017 at 1.9 percent. Job growth was 3.1 percent over the same period—160 basis points higher than the national average.

- Fiscal reform, including personal and corporate tax cuts, will leave more money in the pockets of investors, employers and consumers alike. In the short-term, this is expected to have a unique late-cycle stimulative effect on both the national and local level.

- The heightened level of commercial activity in late 2017 carries a momentum that crosses over into 2018, boosting the forecast for both real estate and the broader economy.

- Despite softening, Salt Lake will retain a position of strength relative to markets nationwide. This will continue to attract investors and businesses to deploy capital in Utah, further stimulating economic activity.

SLC is gorgeous.

I'm curious though if there is prejudice against non-Mormans?

There isn't any prejudice against non-Mormons in the city. In fact, the City itself is actually majority Non-Mormon. in 2010, it was about 40% Mormon. With the current growth happening in the city, it is probably closer to between 30-35%.

The valley itself (Salt Lake County) is around 50-55% Mormon.

Mormons mostly migrated to the burbs decades ago. The stats you see bandied about are nowhere near reality. There or thousands of ex-Mo's like me wandering the streets of SLC who never bothered to take themselves off of the church records. I would say downtown is probably closer to 90% non-Mormon although there is a sizable daytime workforce that is Mormon. No complaints really, other than our legislature, which is a national laughingstock. A good chunk of the younger Mormon population is surprisingly progressive.

Salt Lake is a sneaky little party town really. Shhh. Don't tell anybody that the Mormons don't bite. Our freeways are getting too congested.

Downtown Adj. - More residential planned for the Target block


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/mor...-target-block/

...Developers, dbURBAN Communities, plan to build 67 townhomes near the intersection of 400 West and Aspen Avenue. The project, referred to as Dalton’s Edge will include 16 residential buildings and a clubhouse. The units will be rentals with a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, the bulk of which will be one and two bedrooms.

The units will be three-stories with a car garage on the ground floor, living space on the second and bedrooms on the third floor. Many units will also include roof decks.

According to planning documents, because of the adjacent industrial buildings and big box stores, the project’s architects have made human-scale design a priority for each building. The developers will use exterior materials to have the buildings reflect the industrial history of the Granary District. Building materials will be a mix of concrete, brick, metal, wood and glass...

...There is only one structure on the site, a deteriorating industrial garage. Developers plan to disassemble the structure and potentially reuse the materials in building the clubhouse. The clubhouse will be two stories with floor-to-ceiling windows and an outdoor plaza on the second floor. Additionally, the clubhouse will feature a vertical architectural element...

Downtown Adj. - Commission approves plans for women’s resource center


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/com...source-center/

One of the two proposed Homeless Resource Centers (HRC) has cleared its final significant administrative hurdle, clearing the way for construction to begin. On Wednesday, March 28, the Salt Lake City Planning Commission approved a Conditional Use request for the center proposed for the 100 East block of 700 South that will serve women experiencing, or at risk of homelessnesses...The city has started the demolition and building permit applications for both centers, proposed for 131 E. 700 South and 275 W. High Avenue. The 131 East Center will exclusively house and serve women. The 275 West Center will house both men and women...


Rendering of the proposed 700 South Homeless Resource Center. Image courtesy Salt Lake City public documents.


...AJC Architects designed both resource centers and the city will build both buildings to energy efficient standards. The resource centers will each provide 200 emergency beds and will share a similar layout. The resource centers will be two-stories with emergency beds, a large courtyard, dining area, kitchen, donation room, client services offices, clinical exam room, large hygiene room with showers and small retail area on the ground floor. The second floors will include a break room, conference room, offices and a computer workstation area.

The key difference between floor plans for both resource centers is that the High Avenue Center will have emergency beds and hygiene areas on both floors to serve men and women in separated areas.

The High Avenue center will front two small midblock streets, High Avenue to the north and Paramount Avenue to the south. Residents worried that having the main entrance to the center on High Avenue would create more safety issues than having the entrance on the longer Paramount Avenue...




Update: High Avenue Shelter Also Moving Forward

https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/sec...rative-hurdle/

The city’s second proposed homeless resource center is now moving forward after the Salt Lake City Planning Commission approved a conditional use request for the proposed High Avenue Homeless Resource Center (HRC). The center will occupy the 200 West block of High Avenue in the city’s Ballpark Neighborhood and will serve both men and women in a 200-bed facility...

Central City East - Commission approves Central City mixed-use project


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/com...d-use-project/

A mid-density mixed-use project is moving forward after the Salt Lake City Planning Commission approved the developer’s Planned Development request. The project, currently referred to as 6×6 Mixed-Use, will include the construction of a three-story mixed-use building and the renovation of a historic duplex just west of the intersection of 600 East and 600 South.

The project will have five residential units and ground floor commercial space on 0.22 acres. The 2,188-square-foot new construction building will replace a one-story commercial building and 10-stall surface parking lot on 600 South. The building will include ground floor commercial space and one ground floor residential unit below two additional residential units.

The developers will restore a 119-year-old duplex that will be directly north of the new mixed-use building and will be accessed via a private driveway connecting to 600 South. In addition to interior and exterior renovations, the developers will update the eastern unit to modern ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) accessibility standards.

The developers designed the new construction building two resemble two attached structures to visually separate the ground floor residential unit from the ground floor commercial space. Two additional residential units will occupy the top two floors above the commercial space. The upper units will open to a second-story shared courtyard. All three units will be two-stories with two-bedrooms.

The commercial space will have a brick exterior and will have a slight setback from the sidewalk to accommodate outdoor seating. The project will include four angled on-street parking stalls, a pedestrian walkway to the west of the building to connect the rear duplex to the 600 South, and four off-street surface stalls at the rear of the mixed-use building...

This has to be one of my favorite little projects going on right now around town. What a difference a little tasteful rehab can make!!

Sugar House District - Adaptive Reuse


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/con...tume-building/

A long-vacant parcel is getting a new use while adding much-needed housing in the Sugar House neighborhood. Construction has started on the historic Salt Lake Costume Building. Developers, Salt Lake Costume Properties, Inc., are converting the building, on the southeast corner of the 1100 East and 1700 South intersection, into a 19-unit residential building...

...The three-story building’s exterior shell will be preserved. In September the Salt Lake City Planning Commission approved a planned development request that allows the developers to increase the building roof and ceiling heights by two feet. The developers plan to remove the hard stucco that covers the top two floors and will instead utilize a brick veneer for the all three levels.

Because the current building has very few windows, the developers will add windows and glass doors on all three floors to increase transparency. The top two floors will include exterior balconies. The developers plan to retain the iconic knight sign and incorporate it into the building’s renovation.

The proposed 19 units will be predominantly one bedroom apartments. The ground floor will have four units, three of which will be live/work units and one loft unit. The ground floor units will be walk-up units and will front 1100 East. The second and third floors will have eight and seven units respectively. The two, two-bedroom units will occupy the third floor...

Downtown Adj. - A third brewery is headed to the Granary District


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/thi...o-the-granary/

The Granary District is about to get its third brewery. Last month city officials approved a conditional use request for a small brewery and social club for the proposed TF Brewery. The brewery will be an adaptive reuse project, replacing a former auto repair shop at the 900 South block of 300 West.

TF Brewery will be the Granary’s third brewery to open in the neighborhood in the past two years and will be the fifth brewery in what Salt Lake City Weekly has dubbed the city’s Beer Mile.

Salt Lake has 11 active breweries: Red Rock, Salt Flats Brewing, Roha, Uinta, Utah Brewers Cooperative, Epic, Desert Edge, Fishers, Kiitos, Proper and Squatters.

By the end of the year, the city could have 12 active breweries...

Downtown - Back Alley/Parking Garage Access Regent Street now a downtown destination

SALT LAKE CITY — A few short years ago, Regent Street in downtown Salt Lake City was little more than an access road for business deliveries and the entrance to a multi-level parking garage for a few nearby companies.

Today, the once off-the-beaten-path thoroughfare is now one of the primary connectors between Gallivan Center to the south and City Creek Center on the north, placing it right in the middle of downtown's main entertainment district.

When the much-heralded George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater opened in the spring of last year, civic leaders hoped it would be the next jewel in the crown of the downtown business and entertainment hub — complementing City Creek Center, the 111 Main and 222 Main office towers, along with the new Broadway-style theater venue.

Thus far, the Eccles Theater has not disappointed, exceeding expectations and helping to generate residual prosperity for some its nearby roadways, such as Regent Street...

... said Paul Kuhn, executive chef and co-owner of Last Course Dessert Studio, 115 Regent Street.

"It's a great location as far as foot traffic," he said. "We're already seeing great results from folks going to the shows at the Eccles Theater and people coming in at lunch. "We're confident with what we have and we know the area," Kuhn explained.

He and his partner are familiar with the local restaurant and catering market, so they considered this foray to be one of great potential opportunity.

"I liked what (the city) did with (downtown). It was a good look," he said. "They're just trying to make it a nice area. We're very pleased with the look and approach they're taking and what we see in the future."

Kuhn said Regent Street has space to grow and is slated to add more new dining options in the coming months. It could become one of the top family gathering spots in downtown, he said...

...The Regent Street reconstruction project was born of many public meetings discussing what would soon become the spectacular new Eccles Theater, said Danny Walz, chief operating officer of the Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City....Noting the project is nearing the completion stage, Walz said the last piece of the revitalization effort is currently in the works. "The commission of a public art installation for Regent Street is the final element of the reconstruction, and is already underway,” he said. The city is currently in the final stages of its artist selection process for the public art piece...

MOVE HUB: World's Coolest Cities on the Hipster Index / 446 cities across 20 countries - Salt Lake City #3


"Another one of those just for the fun of it lists." Whatever, a fun diversion. Truthfully, Salt Lake City is progressing, changing and expanding its options dramatically in many ways, and I think for the better.


The Hipster Index: Brighton Pips Portland to Global Top Spot
by FREDERICK O'BRIEN - Last updated on 19 Apr 2018 - https://www.movehub.com/blog/the-hipster-index/

We pride ourselves on asking the important questions here at MoveHub. In this day and age there’s no time for frivolity. Serious times demand serious questions, and ours was, “What’s the most hipster city in the world?”
Our pretentious brethren deserve attention. It’s all they really want. So we rolled up our plaid sleeves and worked out exactly where to find them...



Photo by Nathan Dumlao on Unsplash

Last year’s US-focused project is something we’re proud of, but it was clear our methods could be improved. Lessons learned and public feedback have allowed us to go back to the drawing board and refine the process.

Our new, improved, alternative Hipster Index combines five data points: the number of vegan eateries, coffee shops, tattoo studios, vintage boutiques, and record stores per 100,000 city residents. Combined and weighted they produce
a Hipster Index score out of ten for each city. To prevent inflated numbers — and preserve our sanity — we excluded cities with populations below 150,000.

We looked at 446 cities across 20 countries. That’s 2,834 record stores, 7,772 vegan eats, 14,588 tattoo studios, 15,549 vintage boutiques, and 93,203 coffee shops covering a combined population of over 200,000,000 people. Serious.
Bloody. Business.


Check out the full results below.

1 Brighton and Hove UK 8.1632

2 Portland USA 8.1631

Downtown - Mid-density project moving forward in the Marmalade


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/mid...the-marmalade/

The Marmalade District is continuing its expansion with two adjacent developments moving forward by developers TAG SLC. The developers plan to build two adjacent residential buildings at the 300 West block of Reed Avenue that will add a combined 25 residential units. On April 11, the Salt Lake City Planning Commission approved with conditions a planned development request for the smaller of the two projects, a four-unit townhome project at 361 West.

The larger project will be a four-story, 21 units residential building that will be directly west of the townhomes. The projects, collectively referred to TAG Reed Avenue, will replace a single family home and a vacant lot on 0.35-acres.

The apartment building, at 365 West, will consist of three floors of residential above a groundfloor parking podium. All 21 units will be one-bedroom apartments. The building will have seven rental units per floor and will front Reed Avenue. Parking will be accessed via a small alleyway that will bisect both buildings...

Wasatch Community Gardens planning new Central City campus

Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/was...l-city-campus/

Wasatch Community Gardens (WCG) is ready to expand not only their reach but their flagship garden at the 600 East block of 800 South as part of their CityGarden project. The organization focuses on urban agriculture, youth mentorship and community education and plans to build a small campus directly east of their existing Grateful Tomato Garden...In their capital campaign post, the organization describes its vision for the CityGarden project as a an “urban agriculture hub that will house our offices, a commercial kitchen to use for youth and adult classes, a workshop space for our education programs, and demonstration gardens to help community members learn to grow and eat healthy food.”

There is a single family home on each of the three parcels. All three homes are in the Central City Historic District and will be preserved and converted into new uses. WCG will convert the home closest to the original garden into an education center. The home has a significant setback and the front yard will become additional garden space...

Downtown Adj. - Large townhome project underway in the Ballpark Neighborhood

Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/lar...-neighborhood/

Kensington Avenue between Main and State Streets already has a diverse amount of amenities, including a costume shop, microbrewery, two Asian food markets and a restaurant. Later this year the block will also be home to new residential units. Construction is well underway on the M15 Lofts, a 20-unit townhome project at the northeast corner of the intersection of Kensington Avenue and Main Street in the Ballpark Neighborhood.

The M15 Lofts, by Axis Architects, will be for-sale units with both two and bedroom homes available. The townhomes will range in size from 1,331 to 1,576 square feet. Each home will be three-stories with a two-car garage on the first level, kitchen and living space on the second and bedrooms on the third. Each unit will have a master bedroom and balconies on the second and third floors.

The project consists of two buildings with 10 units in each. One building will front Main Street to the west while the second building will front a small alleyway to the east. Parking in both buildings will be accessed via a small private driveway that bisects both buildings.

The units will be setback from the street level to allow for small, private gated front yards. Most units will also feature a bonus room at the main entryway...

Commercial real estate on historic pace, report says

by Jason Lee https://www.deseretnews.com/article/...port-says.html

SALT LAKE CITY — Industrial leasing in Salt Lake County has topped 1 million square feet for the sixth consecutive quarter, a new report stated.

It is the longest run on record for the county, according to CBRE’s Q1 2018 MarketView. The report showed lease activity impacted by sustained increased development levels during the first three-month period of the year. Thus far, industrial developers have applied for 1.3 million square feet of speculative industrial permits and the initial phase of the Salt Lake City Port Global Logistics Center was also announced.

The new project is planned to be a 3,000-acre logistics park in the northwest quadrant of Salt Lake City with phase one slated to consist of 10 buildings totaling approximately 7.5 million square feet, said CBRE senior vice president Jeff Richards.

"Salt Lake’s industrial market has experienced remarkable growth in the recent past and it shows no signs of slowing down,” he said. “With the announcement of the Salt Lake City Port Global Logistics Center, the local industrial market has potential to increase in size by 39 percent in the future. This is just one example of the extraordinary momentum occurring in Utah’s industrial segment right now."...




Report says Salt Lake City among 'toughest' housing markets for millennials

SALT LAKE CITY — While the Beehive State can boast one of the most robust economies and housing markets in the country, that strength has created a challenging circumstance for young would-be homebuyers, a new report says.

According to California-based realtor.com, a combination of low housing inventory, escalating real estate prices and increasing demand have made San Jose, California; Seattle; Salt Lake City; Minneapolis; and Omaha, Nebraska, the toughest areas in the country for prospective millennial homebuyers this spring...

..."Especially in the last year, you look at the economy growing at about two times the pace of the U.S. average," he said. "The other part is the city itself is becoming a place where people actually want to put down roots. That's where we're seeing some of that millennial demand build up in the last 18 months."

He added that the area's lifestyle options are helping to make the city more attractive to the millennial population, something that should continue for the foreseeable future...

Downtown - Curbside View, Recently completed Liberty Crest Development

Hmm, from the curbside Liberty Crest looks pretty cool. Like the wood treatment.

Liberty Park District - Demolition underway for new mixed-use development


Isaac Riddle Reports - Full Article @ https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/dem...e-development/

Demolition is nearly complete of two former commercial structures at the southwest corner of the 500 East and 1300 South intersection. Jolley & Jube Investments, have demolished the two buildings to make way for construction of the proposed Wells Mixed-use Development.

The proposed mixed-use project will replace the two commercial buildings on 0.39 acres with two, two-story buildings with 12 residential units and 14 commercial units. In March, the Salt Lake City Planning Commission approved the developers request for reduced front and side yard setbacks to allow the project to build up to the sidewalk level on both 1300 South and 500 East.

Both buildings will be mixed-use and will be separated by two walkways, surface parking and landscaping. The north building will front both 1300 South and 500 East and will have two restaurant and four retail spaces on the ground floor. The second floor will have four one-bedroom apartments. Each apartment will have one and one-half baths and a balcony. The building will have a significant amount of glazing on both floors with floor to ceiling windows that will increase the building’s transparency at the street level.

With the approved setback reductions the developers hope to activate the street level and have applied for an outdoor dining permit for the restaurant spaces...
