Yes, thanks for the as always great updates! A lot of good projects, and always enthusiastic about so many of the missing middle projects going on around town. Just one concern, and that would be not so sure about this design on S. Temple. The scale is fine, which I'm sure was paramount in the HLC's minds. But the design treatment is a big thumbs down. Not a big fan of some of the buildings on that specific street. Some of the contemporary designs on S. Temple are acceptable, passable or even quite attractive, because they have a definite note of high quality and sophistication, such as Governor's Plaza or the former IBM building. But a number are too faux and cheap looking for that street. To me, this one below is crossing that mediocre, unimaginative cheap line. I'm sure it's not the architectural firms fault. Probably the developer/lot owner is looking to cash in as easily as possible. This just won't look that good new, and it certainly won't age well when compared to its historic neighbors. This design below would be barely passable on a number of streets in Central Ninth. I wish they would treat S. Temple with a little more respect when it comes to the elemental treatment of some of these newer projects. I often agree with the city's focus on the scale of certain neighborhood projects. However, sometimes it seems as if that's their one and only fixation. Ugh, I mean look at that balcony treatment, among other problems.

I'm holding my breath and keeping my fingers crossed on the big Trolley Sq. apartment project. Hoping for something like those original renderings(Remember those, that was something to be enthusiastic about). Heaven forbid a cheap looking faux replica..


Rendering of the proposed 1117 E. South Temple apartments as designed by SH Architecture. Image courtesy Salt Lake City public documents. HLC approved three missing middle projects last week.

It doesn't have to be as elaborate at the front as this Tudor front below, but even just mimicking much of it's neighbor to the right would be a big improvement.



Below, an example of a Tudor balcony. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't have to be a Tudor design. There are any number of designs that would work much better at that scale for S. Temple. Even much of what is approved these days for Park City would be a much better fit.

Interesting. On my phone, which is how I view the site, they are up right. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

Perhaps I’ll switch the image url provider.
