It looks like the In the Venue building is already being torn down.

In the Venue was a concert venue in the Depot District that the awful "Central Station West" development is going to replace if they get approval from the Planning Commission.

Basically, they want to reuse the design of the nearby "Central Station" apartments and they can't do that without getting an exception to the part of the code that says "no giant concrete walls along the street." The new building also will have no active ground floor use.

Some nice drone shots of the construction at Rice-Eccles on Utehub today:

I don't understand why In the Venue is being torn down before the Central Station West apartments are even approved. What a disappointment.

Orlando, it's this building:

It may not be a notable building architecturally speaking, but it's been a hub of Salt Lake nightlife for a long time.

I was downtown yesterday and snapped some quick pics for project updates! Apparently I am out of touch posting on here and the images from photobucket have their lame logo on them, so I apologize in advance!

You can definitely see the core of the convention center hotel being formed and rebar being put in place.

A new apartment building has been proposed in the center of a block near 800 East and Ramona. The project will include one 3-floor building with 17 residential units. I don't think they have settled on a name yet, since in the documents they refer to it as Windsor Court, Sugarhouse Commons, and Sugarhouse Windsor.

The address used in the document was: 1966 S. Windsor Street

And commence NIMBY's in the area losing it over this development.

The Village at North Station - Design Review

A large apartment complex has filed for a Design Review. https://citizenportal.slcgov.com/Cit...howInspection= The project will be replacing a portion of the Diamond Parking lot near the airport (though it sounds like this portion hasn't been used for a while).

Project Description
Quote:
Gardner Batt & Architecture Belgique Inc. are proposing the redevelopment of 1925 W North Temple which is the current location of Diamond Airport Parking.

The new 769-Unit 100% Affordable Housing development will be replacing the non-conforming Diamond Airport Parking Site.

This 7 apartment building and 1 amenity-building complex will include a block style layout with a private main drive from North Temple that continues south and east through the development connecting back onto the South End of Orange St. This development aims to bring a lively pedestrian friendly residential component to the TSA-MUEC Zone. Midblock walkways along with typical sidewalks allow pedestrian transit within the development helping to create a neighborhood style feel.

I was about to defend the NIMBYs, but this actually looks pretty appropriate for a commercial adjacent structure. There is a wonderfully productive mulberry in that lot, which I'm sure will be cut down for this though. Unless the wind storm already got it, that is.

Edit: I was slow to post. I was referring to the Windsor street development above. As to this one. Great to add a ton of units to the west side on the transit line, but I don't like that it is 100% affordable. Not that it is likely to become Cabrini Green, but I think mixing in affordable with market rate leads to better outcomes.

INDUSTRY Parking Garage

Here are some of the projects that I was unaware of:

Industry and another partner Qfactor are making plans to develop the block to the east of Industry's newly completed warehouse office adaptive re-use.

The thing I find most interesting about the parking garage is that it includes a large climbing wall and gym as part of it. Also I love that they are retrofitting the parking structure so that it can be turned into housing units in the future.

From the BSL article https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/the...kL5CNZkJtCoVj0
Quote:
As INDUSTRY’s next-gen office space on 500 West comes together, it is building with its partner Q Factor a seven-story, 927-stall parking garage in the middle of the block between 500 + 400 West and 600 + 700 South.

Their proposal is requesting relief from the 60 ft height restriction and requirements for front and rear yard setbacks, and is nearing a hearing with the Planning Commission for design and planned development review.

Q Factor’s Jesse Dean told us that the garage is being built with sprinklers and a high floor-to-floor ratio that will allow its easy conversion to multi-family residential in the future if the area’s transit options grow.

The convertible design has cost the developers approximately 30% more than the typical 18,000-$20,000 per structured parking stall.

The parking garage is intended to service all of INDUSTRY’s planned construction in the District, plus Lake Union Partners’ adaptive reuse project on the southeast side of the block, on 400 West and 700 South.
I also pulled the images from engine 8 themselves, since I they are larger and clearer then the ones from BSL. https://www.engine8designs.com/climb...et76ry9r8v5vg6

This is another example of packing the west side with 100% affordable housing developments. I agree they should be mixed income, and should have a maximum of 50% of the units affordable, so that they are not cementing into place census tracts of inter-generational poverty, and overwhelming local schools with more kids below the poverty line.

The Village at North Station is trash. It is suburban dev at its worst with a design that maximizes investor profit while leaving the city to hold the bag for decades to come. This will turn into a frequent source of police calls and will be blighted within years. It uses no urban design principles integrated or flow. With that said I LOVE Industry more and more.

I was just thinking the same thing after I checked out the address. Anyone who is unfamiliar with the street, check out Google Maps with photos on this one, and you'll see what we mean. I'm thinking there shouldn't be a problem with nimby's, given its location and immediate surroundings.

I was just wondering the same thing today. Maybe UtahPlanner, Makid or someone has an idea. Seemed like construction was imminent, then suddenly it all came to a halt.

Hopefully, The Village won't turn into a huge ghetto block, but instead with a few adjustments in the approval process, a good opportunity for the city to provide severely needed decent affordable housing. I agree that there should be at least some percentage of mixed-income. In addition, often the future outcome of renter quality in a large complex like this very much depends on who the owner of the property is and its management team. If the city is smart they'll do some serious due diligence on the owners and management during its approval process, along with serious followup after the project completion and tenant move-in. Remember, affordable doesn't have to mean vagrant. Nowadays, affordable can mean a lot of things, from school teachers to health care workers, or many hard-working people in the services industry. Even here in Los Angeles, owners have a lot of latitudes when it comes to who they rent to. The problems usually occur when owners either are out of sight/out of mind and or they fail to hire a highly reputable management company with an excellent track record. A good management company will do some serious pre-rent follow-up on tenant track records.

Ditto to loving The INDUSTRY development.

I agree with Always Sunny. I hope this doesn't get off the ground - North Temple has enough issues as it is.

Does anyone know what this building on Edison will be? It's a reuse of an old building with an addition on top.

It's being converted into a mixed use building with light commercial and 8 apartments.
