Things are looking up for downtown South Salt Lake and the city’s S-Line corridor. The area was formally a food desert until a new Winco grocery store opened earlier this month. Additonally, the area’s residential population is booming with three multi-family developments (Hi-Grade, Ritz Classic, and Zellerbach) under construction and the recently completed Moda S-Line Townhomes.
The Hi-Grade Apartments are a five-story mixed-use project on the west side of West Temple between Commonwealth Avenue and Utopia Avenue, just south of 2100 South. The affordable housing development is next to TRAX, Shades of Pale Brewing and Pat’s Barbecue. The project, in South Salt Lake’s planned Downtown District, will include 100 apartment units. The project will feature ground floor parking structure, 1,500 square feet of commercial space and a fitness center for residents.
The planned centerpiece to the South Salt Lake Downtown District is The Crossing development. The first phase of this project, the new Winco Grocery store, is now open for business just south of 2100 South on Main.
The store is surrounded by a sea of surface parking despite being conveniently located directly north of the South Salt Lake S-Line Station. In addition to the Winco grocery story, future phases for The Crossing development include two new multi-family complexes and additional retail pads along State Street.
When built out the city envisions the downtown district, the area bounded by 2100 South, Interstate 80, State Street and 200 West, to have 3 million square feet of office space and 2,600 residential units.

The Ritz Classic Apartments are a five-story, 287 unit multi-family project that sits just off State Street behind some retail directly south of the S-Line in South Salt Lake. Developed by ICO Multi Family Holdings, the commercial real estate arm of Ivory Homes, the project is designed to interact with the S-Line Greenway through multiple entrances and complementary landscaping.
