Rose Park, believe it or not, has historically been an area of the city that did things right - a mix of incomes and families.

This is why it's maddening to listen to our racist president talk about keeping low-income people out of the suburbs. What an insulting, nasty mindset to have and openly push.

You bring up a good point. Historically I think that was more true than now, but admittedly I left Rosepark (technically Fairpark) in the 90’s so I don’t know how diverse it is economically these days. I grew up between 5th and 6th North and about 1350 West. It was a fairly diverse neighborhood along many different metrics and I loved how small retail had embedded in many parts such as 5th North and Oakley, 6th North and 12th West, 1000 North and 14th West and 1000 North 9th West. We didn’t have to travel far to some giant retail complex to do our shopping. We would ride our bikes to rent a movie, get a drink etc. There was a shop called Earls on the corner of 5th North and Oakley (now La Tiendita) where we hung out a lot. Growing up there deeply impacted how I see the ideal city being laid out.

I’d mostly agree. Just sucks that any great potential an empty lot could have is usually eaten up by the developments we hate the most.

We all know that the shitty gentrifications are waaaay more common. Look at the Sugarhouse neighborhood and say no mo.

70-80+ mph wind gusts in SLC today. Trees and overturned semis are all over the roads and power is out in large parts of the city. Hopefully it doesn't endanger any tower cranes. I'm not really sure how much those can take.

Sugarhouse Park has around a dozen uprooted trees that I could see from the road. All in all I saw at least 20 uprooted trees on my drive into work today, from south Sugarhouse to Research park. And too many broken huge branches to count. 2 downed power/telephone lines across roads. Should have stayed home and sipped coffee all day.

What happened with the fleet block rezoning? I can't really find much about it in the past year.

Liberty Park was the same way. Salt Lake City got absolutely wrecked.

Tower cranes are designed to withstand really powerful winds. I would be more worried about trees and roofs in a windstorm than cranes.

Convention hotel concrete pour

Is that a second crane going up on the left side of the pic?

Wow, very nice house. I wonder if that big tree in front of it is still standing lol.

Unfortunately, the big trees at Liberty Park, Sugar House Park, and the U got savaged.

Henries Cleaners, the abandoned and contaminated building in the central 9th neighborhood is burning to the ground as I write this.

Two major much needed projects are slated for that contaminated site. That is if they can ever figure out how to afford to clean the place up.

The Slate - 148 unit mixed-use apartment project adjacent to the Central Ninth TRAX station in Salt Lake City.


The Sydney - 128 unit mixed-use brownfield redevelopment site adjacent to the Central Ninth TRAX station in Salt Lake City.

Those look pretty good. Hopefully we get some projects like that west of the Gateway someday.

It also looks like Utah is going to get its first Modern Market, a great fast casual place from CO!
