SALT LAKE CITY | Kensington Tower | 448 FT | 39 FLOORS



https://www.deseret.com/utah/2019/9/...nsington-tower

Quote:
SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City is poised to get another addition to its already fast-growing skyline — and this high-rise would shatter the city’s height record.

If approved, it will replace Carl’s Jr. restaurant at 75 E. 200 South.

Towering at a total of 448 feet with 39 floors of luxury apartments, the proposed Kensington Tower at the corner of State Street and 200 South will bring Salt Lake City and Utah to new building heights if it wins approval from city officials.

“It will be the tallest building not just in Salt Lake, but the entire state,” said Molly Robinson, planning manager in the city’s planning division. “That’s pretty exciting. And the fact that it’s almost fully residential is even more amazing.”

Robinson said even city planners were “surprised” to see the proposed height, not knowing the developers — Boston-based Kensington Investment Company Inc. and architect HKS Inc. — would be so ambitious to reach for new heights with a residential building.

Oh geez, a Kensington?! I certainly hope this turns out substantially better than the piece of crap they built in Boston! It's a top nominee for my city's worst high-rise of the decade! The SLC one has better proportions at least. Boston's also has terrible quality/color glass, and the siding resembles soggy cardboard. The crown is probably the worst in the whole city. Let's hope they have learned A LOT considering this would be SLC's new tallest building!

I'm excited to see this one move forward. The news has been good lately with the planning commission approving the height requests.

More info and renderings here

But of a bummer that it’s not set to begin for at least a year.

I think it has something to do with the Carl's Jr. lease not expiring until the end of next year.

This is the site, taken today. Definitely a prime spot for a tower.

We received word that ground breaking was delayed due to the pandemic, but is anticipated to begin in the spring of 2021.
