In Pictures: More affordable housing is underway near downtown

While Salt Lake City officials debate over the best way to increase the city’s stock of affordable housing, three downtown adjacent developments are underway that will increase the number of units reserved for residents earning less than the Area Median Income (AMI).  Each of the three projects, the Bodhi Apartments, Moda Granary Place and Public Open, is nearly or completely famed out and is within two blocks of downtown Salt Lake City.  They will add a combined total of 326 units, 275 of which will be income restricted.

Bodhi Apartments

The five-story Bodhi Apartments on the north side of the 700 West block of South Temple will have 80 units, 60 of which will be targeted to several low-income groups.  Five of the unit will be reserved for the chronically homeless, nine will be reserved for people with diagnosed mental illness, nine for people with mobility issues and the remaining 37 units will be set aside for residents earning less than 50 percent AMI.

The development is a partnership between the Housing Authority of Salt Lake County and Missouri developer, the Vecino Group whose motto is “Housing for the Greater Good”.

The Bodhi Apartments are just west of the Gateway and a block from the TRAX Green Line Jackson/Euclid station.
