With its proximity to both downtown and the University of Utah, the Central City neighborhood has been booming.  About 500 new residential units have been added to the neighborhood in the past two years with another nearly 400 units under construction.

On the 200 South block of 500 East, the Bonneville Apartments are nearly framed out.  The six-story building will include 158 residential units.  The units will be market-rate and amenities include: an indoor/outdoor clubhouse on the 3rd floor, an outdoor spa and gathering area with a fireplace, a demonstration commercial kitchen in the club room, an internet and coffee lounge, a game room with billiards, a commercial grade pet wash room, two off-leash pet runs, bike storage, washing facilities, a boardroom for resident use, a modern gym and a yoga room.

The building replaced a one-story office building previously owned by the University of Utah.  The building adds infill to the block, with the bulk of the building at midblock instead of along the street.
