A less-than-eventful winter has helped Sugar House’s current construction boom continue through the winter months. There are six very different projects underway in the neighborhood which will bring new office space, commercial space, and almost 900 new residential units. The projects range from skyline-changing projects in the business district to missing middle housing in the neighborhood’s outer edges.
Excavation is complete and the below-grade construction has commenced on Westport Capital Parners’ Park Avenue development between Highland Drive and 1300 East just north of I-80. This new development replaces the former ShopKo and the large associated surface parking lot. The first phase of the project is underway and will include a University of Utah Health Center building and a 150,000 square foot office building. Both buildings will share a parking structure. The second phase will be a 180-unit mixed-use residential building at the west end of the project near Highland Drive.
Sugar House’s next largest residential project, Boulder Ventures’ Sugarmont Apartments, is now visible in the Sugar House skyline. Framing is underway on the project on McClelland Ave between Sugarmont Drive and Elm St. The eight-story project will have 352 units and sits just north of the S-Line and Fairmont Park.
The five-story, 126-unit apartment building, 21 by Urbana, is rising on the corner of 1000 East and 2100 South. The Gardiner Properties’ project is well underway and framing is underway on the fourth floor. The third and fourth floors are set back from the first three floors that are built up to the sidewalk.
