The Morton

The Morton, an eight-story apartment building on the east side of the 200 south block of 200 East, is actively under construction.  The Morton is Seattle based-developer Timberlane Partners‘ first new build project in Salt Lake City.  The apartments will sit in between a mortuary and an existing smaller-scale apartment building.  The project will have 137 residential units with 1,400 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
