In Pictures: Progress on Marmalade area Missing Middle Projects

Three “for sale” Missing Middle projects are currently under construction in the Marmalade/West Capitol area.  According to, the Missing Middle refers to a range of multi-unit or clustered housing types compatible in scale with single-family homes that help meet the growing demand for walkable urban living.  These three projects: the Almond Street Townhomes, The Grove at Marmalade and the Marmalade Courtyards, will bring density to the area by adding a combined 59 new for-sale housing units to the neighborhoods just north of downtown Salt Lake City.

The Closest to downtown, the Almond Street townhomes are actively under construction.  The project by Garbett Homes is located between Almond Street and West Temple and 200 and 300 North.  Sizes of the 17 units range from 1,245 to 2,841 square feet and are listed at between $469,178 and $714,900.  Twelve of the units have already sold.  The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2017 or early 2018.
