Thirteen years on from a city-led upzoning, the North Temple and Folsom corridors continue to attract developers.

At 52 South 800 W in the Euclid neighborhood, just steps from the Folsom Trail, a 89-unit, 5-over-1 single-use, market-rate apartment building is replacing two single-family homes and a duplex.

The new building is replacing houses at 52 S (built 1910), 54 S (1920) and 60 S (1905).

The new 6-story building on .38 combined acres will offer 30 studio and 59 one-bedroom dwellings. Parking will be located at grade within the podium, comprising of 34 car parking spots, a .38 to 1 ratio, and spaces for 20 bikes.

A quarter mile from the Jackson/Euclid Trax station and bus lines running on North Temple, and less than a half mile from UTA’s hub at 600 W and 200 South, the project should be able to attract residents living without a car.

Its propinquity to Downtown and to the Folsom Trail, which is undergoing transformation into a linear park that will eventually connect with the Jordan River Trail, is an additional reason developers have been flocking to the Opportunity Zone area along North Temple. Form-based transit-oriented zoning, TSA-UN-T in this case, is likely another.

The project is queued, but not yet scheduled, for design review with Planning staff and the Planning Commission.

Developer: Go West Development
