It has been a busy construction year in Salt Lake City, with unprecedented growth, especially in multifamily and mixed-use developments. There are currently over 3,800 residential units under construction and another 3,200 more in development. But it is the development downtown that is of most interest to Building Salt Lake readers. Four of the five most read stories this year were about projects either in downtown or downtown adjacent, especially news on the Gateway’s possible revival. The sole non-downtown related story to make the top five was about downtown South Salt Lake’s redevelopment.
Here are the top five stories this year based on total views.
