We take a look at ongoing projects in the Granary District along 700 South, as well as the 13-acre assemblage to the north – the Post District – that is beginning to take some shape on 500 South.

Despite serious dysfunction in urban design – due to the rights of billboards, highways for streets, and out of date zoning – the area’s momentum is undeniably impressive.

Here’s our update – in pictures.

The corner of 400 W and 700 S. The Evo campus, by Lake Union Partners, is getting a glow and some tenants. The former Rico foods warehouse is complete in its renovation on 700 S.

At 500 W, Industry indeed has activity – a major food + beverage provider, office tenants attracting food trucks, and of course, construction crews. These shots are between 700 S and 600 S, which is an off-ramp for I-15. Photos by Luke Garrott.

The Silos affordable housing project at 425 W 500 S by Giv Communities has completed its financing package – and the developer tells Building Salt Lake that the block to the south is likely to see significantly more action from a partnership between Giv and Lowe Development Group.
