Architectural Insight - High-rise architects are asked to provide high-density spaces that address environmental sustainability, amenity, and resiliency concerns.

Taylor Larsen - October 5th, 2020 | by UC&D Magazine - http://utahcdmag.com/2020/10/we-own-the-sky/

Emir Tursic, Principal with HKS Architects, leads the design of Kensington Tower, the 600,000 SF, 40-story residential building currently in design that will be located at the corner of State Street and 200 South.

Tursic says a key aspect on any high-rise design centers on efficiency. “These large-scale developments take a lot of resources,” he says. “When we make them as efficient as we can, we make them more sustainable, and that translates into construction efficiency and feasibility of the project as a whole.”

Architects like Tursic are thinking of sustainability in multiple ways. “Air quality is the threat that affects us [in Salt Lake City]—we do whatever we can to reduce the carbon footprint,” he says concerning the issue of sustainable energy and resource-use that comes from higher densities achieved by building vertically.

The other part of sustainability is resilience that foresees and mitigates present and future challenges—the sustainability of a well-designed, safe building that can last into the next century and beyond.

March’s earthquake reinforced this idea of sustainability, building upon a concept that HKS was already exploring with Kensington Tower, namely Performance-based Design. “We are doing site-specific seismic design instead of following prescriptive code requirements. We’re looking at the soil that the building will be on and designing to a maximum credible earthquake and customizing the structural design to meet that.”

The scale is also a test of architectural prowess, especially as Tursic and his team design what will become Utah’s tallest building. “Designing and articulating [high-rises] architecturally is a challenge. We want it to relate to the other buildings in the neighborhood.”

How will they do it? “The Kensington Tower modulates its massing to place the tallest portion of the structure away from other, shorter buildings, and steps down the mid-rise portion to relate to the scale of the adjacent mid-block development,” Tursic explains. The other trick with high-rise buildings is to articulate them in order to reduce their perceived scale and relate more to the human scale.

Height challenges of these building types are also a concern: “One foot taller on each floor and suddenly you’re building a whole other building on top of this one,” says Tursic. Finding the delicate balance in scaling correctly while maintaining efficiency is a key for any architect working on such tall buildings.

Other questions: how do you scale 40 floors and the hundreds of units going into them? “How do you design 377 residences—permanent homes for people—where each residence is as efficient and generous as possible?” asks Tursic.

The answers come in developing a variety of floor plates, or mixes of unit combinations that give each floor the variance that architects want. Tursic mentions the importance of creating an efficient vertical stack where the constraints imposed by mechanical systems are mitigated. “But providing different residence types that fit different unit mix and demographics is still important.”

It’s a tall task (I couldn’t resist) but one that the HKS team feels fully prepared for as they continue designing the tallest building in Utah. “Our market has matured,” Tursic concludes. “Salt Lake City is running out of space and the only way to go is up. […] We have this whole influx of people who want to stay downtown, and it’s exciting for the city to reach this new chapter in development.”

True. This plot of land has gone through...well...a few project proposals...


Site from 2015 BSL article

For a quick refresher for new members or those who may not have been aware:

Air Center - Cancelled
2013 version of Air Center
An eight-story mixed-use building with a nightclub, restaurant and three floors of office space.

2013 version of Air Center

2014 version of Air Center
https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/amb...own-salt-lake/
Quote:
A 400-foot mixed-use development (around 30-stories) called the Air Center...the podium, and lower tower levels will feature a hotel, restaurant, urban lounge, boutique market, spa and fitness center, event space, pool club and night club tentatively called FALLEN. The urban lounge will be called 7EVEN and will feature live jazz and a taps inspired menu serving locally-grown and organic ingredients.

The upper tower levels will include business space, apartments and luxury condos on the top floors. As is the custom in mixed used hotel buildings, residences will have access to all building amenities which according to Bretsheneider will include access to a fleet of electric cars and cruising bikes which residents can schedule to use free of charge.

2014 version of Air Center

Void Corporate Center - Cancelled

Then we got the Void Corporate Center. This was probably my favorite of the three failed projects. It would have been 22 stories and 268-feet tall.
BSL article: https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/sit...ower-for-sale/
Quote:
The building would have served as the corporate headquarters for The VOID, the company owned by the project’s previous developer, Ken Bretschneider. The VOID would have also included a 247-room hotel, a restaurant, urban lounge, night club, event space, spa and fitness center.

370 Millenium Tower - Cancelled

Millenium Tower would be a 27 story mixed-use building.
https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/cal...owntown-tower/
Quote:
he 370 Millennium Tower will include a mix of commercial office space, retail space, a hotel and residential condominiums.

The project will consist of a six-story parking podium with groundfloor retail and restaurant space. Atop the podium will be an amenity deck and the start of the actual commercial office space. The amenity deck would be available to the building’s office workers, hotel guests and condo residents. The amenity deck will include fire pits, jacuzzi, pool and outdoor event space.

As currently proposed, floors 6 to 17 will be reserved for commercial office space. The hotel will occupy floors 16 to 25. Floors 26 and 27 will have four luxury condominiums each.

New Development - 1625 W. North Temple (adjacent to Rocky Mountain Power site)

A 6 floor (1 floor podium + 5 floors) 111 residential unit development has been proposed at 1625 W. North Temple.
https://citizenportal.slcgov.com/Cit...howInspection=

Project Narrative:
Quote:
The proposed multi-family development at 1625 West North Temple will replace a vacant restaurant and surface parking lot with 111 residential units, associated amenity spaces, a retail space on the ground floor, with structured parking and secure bike storage facilities located behind the retail space. The 111 units include studios, one-bedrooms, and two-bedrooms, ranging from 450 to 950 square feet, divided up to meet market demand for the surrounding area. Amenity spaces for the development include a future co-working space on the ground floor, a lounge space and fitness center on levels 5 and 6, and a rooftop open space for lounging and grilling.






Nothing particularly special, though I do like that glass box/room at the top.

This project sits directly adjacent and to the west of Rocky Mountain Power's approximately 100 acres along North Temple which was recently announced will be getting redeveloped over the coming decade. The parcel is only 0.57 acres, giving a taste of the scale of what is possible on the Rocky Mountain Power site if it is developed to its full potential.



The project will be replacing a small one floor drive-through restaurant seen below.

Thanks for the heads-up on that project Blah-Amazing. Very excited how many projects are coming up on North Temple. There are several things I like about that project. One, that the narrow end of the building is placed at the main thoroughfare view. Also, like you pointed out, that glass box at the top corner makes for a much more attractive and interesting aesthetic. I'm also a big proponent of the many projects that are utilizing public art on their facades in the Salt Lake City area. Great that it's filling in a very underdeveloped lot, to say the least, especially considering it's No. Temple and the light-rail line just minutes to the airport.

This iteration will make for an attractive addition on the No. Temple TRAX line

Plus The Morton is about 1/3 full and Moda Luxe appears to preparing the buildings for demo in the near future. Lots of infill in that area.

Update, Sugar House District - Park Avenue Project


Latest ABIDrone Flyover - October 13th - The 40 Park Avenue Construction : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3dZtvkpnLo


Sugar House Park

https://i.pinimg.com/originals/e9/ca...6ce0a255d4.jpg


This enthusiastically welcomed development was formerly the giant parking lot of the big-box retailer Shopko. We all love getting rid of big parking lots.
Both the 80 and 60 Park Ave. structures are now completed. The 40 Park structure is progressing rapidly as you can see in the ABIDrone flyover

Under Construction - Updated Rendering - The 1240 Park Avenue Apartments

The updated rendering, showing front changes. They've also added an additional floor. This updated rendering was released a little over a month ago.

Park Avenue Developments

The buildings are replacing 9 acres of underutilized land near the heart of Sugar House. There are two new east-to-west streets to the north and south of the
development that will connect Highland Drive to 1300 East. The development will also include two new north to south throughways connecting Ashton to Stringham.

Sugar House - Crede Residential Launch Development - https://www.connect.media/crede-cott...ent-on-slc-mf/

Irvine, CA-headquartered CREDE broke ground on Park Avenue Apartments, a 238-unit multifamily complex in Salt Lake City’s Sugar House community. Developed in partnership with Salt Lake City-based Cottonwood Residential, the project is set for a Q4 2021 delivery.

CREDE’s Colby Durnin says, “Park Avenue Apartments will provide highly desirable apartments in the burgeoning Sugar House area. The economic growth of Utah and Salt Lake City in particular, have led to a strong need for new residential options, as more companies relocate or open offices in Salt Lake City.”

The mid-rise 238-unit project will offer studio, one and two-bedroom apartment homes. Each unit will include nine-foot ceilings, luxury vinyl wood plank flooring, upgraded cabinetry and stone countertops, with most units having a balcony or patio. The building will also feature 1,400 square feet of retail space, a fitness center, and a resort-style pool with an outdoor terrace that includes fire pits, barbecues and two hot tubs.
