In pictures: Central City projects creating mid-rise cluster

This week’s photo updates focuses on various projects in the Central City area of Salt Lake City (the neighborhood just east of downtown) that are progressing very quickly; the Newhouse Apartments are nearly finished, the Seasons at Library Square are almost framed out, wood framing has begun for the Hope Lodge and should soon begin for the Encore Apartments.

Now that construction has begun on the Seasons at Denver Street Apartments on 400 South near Coffee Break, a cluster of mid-rise buildings is emerging in this section of the city in and around 400 and 500 South between 300 and 600 East.   The four residential buildings under-construction are all within a few blocks of each other and will add a combined nearly 500 residential units to the neighborhood.
