The first phase of development in South Salt Lake since the S-Line opened is rising from the ground.  The first phase consists of two projects, the S-Line Townhomes and the Zellerbach Apartments, framing is underway on both projects on just south of the S-Line on 400 and 300 East.

The S-Line Townhomes development is the furthest along of the two projects.  The townhomes are framed-out with exterior materials now being applied.  The S-Line Townhomes consists of four buildings with eight units per building.  The townhomes are three stories each and will be a mix of two and three-bedroom units with a ground floor car garage.

The Zellerbach Apartments will occupy the entire northern half of the block between 300 and 400 East directly south of the S-Line.  The Zellerbach development will be four stories with 292 residential units at the site of the former Zellerbach warehouse.

Both projects are included in the East Streetcar Corridor Form Based Code zone.  The corridor consists of the four blocks between State Street and 500 East surrounding the S-Line Streetcar and Greenway. The corridor is divided into three districts: State Street Gateway, North Haven and 500 East Gateway.  The Zellerbach Apartments are in the North Haven district while the S-Line townhomes project is in the 500 East Gateway district.  Under the form-based code, projects must engage with the S-Line through building frontage, reduced setbacks and public space along the S-Line Greenway.
