21st & 21st Update: In Photos

The northeast side of the intersection of 2100 South and 2100 East was the longtime home of the beloved Blue Plate Diner. We first reported in 2019 that plans were submitted to Salt Lake City for a mixed-use development on the site. The intersection currently houses a Speedway gas station, a dry cleaners, a couple of dental offices, an insurance agency, a drive-through bank, an office building, and the Neighborhood Hive.

Its most recent master plan, completed in 2017, is here.

The Twenty Ones – 2077 S 2100 E

The new mixed-use development, dubbed the Twenty Ones, will bring 108 apartment homes to the east Sugar House neighborhood, as well as a plethora of new retail options. Among them include Great Harvest Bread, Pvolve, Fiiz Drinks, Courtney Boutique, Heart’s Nail Spa, The Wick Lab, and a pizza restaurant from the Provo-based Heirloom Restaurant Group. According to the retail leasing agent Tanner Olson, most of the retail options will be open by late fall 2024.

The development, designed by AE Urbia Architects and Engineers, is split into two buildings, with the north building consisting of three floors of apartments, and the south building with ground floor retail and apartments on the second floor. Zoned Community Business (CB), with a height restriction of 30 feet, a special exception was granted for an additional three feet on the north building to allow for three stories. There will be underground parking for the residents and ground level parking for the retail, totaling 188 spaces. The apartments, made up of 27 studios, 67 one-bedrooms, and 14 two-bedrooms, are now accepting applications with prices ranging from $1,700 to $2600/month.

Located in the middle of UTA’s fifteen-minute Route 21 bus route, residents will have easy access to the Anderson-Foothill Library, Sugar House Business District, Sugar House Park, Central Pointe TRAX station, and the University of Utah. The development is also along High Valley Transit’s Route 107, which offers free bus service to and from Park City.

Although residents of the Twenty Ones will have easy, walkable access to the retail amenities, 2100 South can act as a hindrance to pedestrian activity. Safe street advocates have long plead for a safer 2100 South, though there are no current plans to address this portion of the deadly stroad.
