The Depot District, also known as the Gateway District, stretches from 400 West to I-15 (~700 West), and North Temple to 400 South. Its history as a transportation hub on the west side of Downtown is still apparent today. But its recent emergence into a mixed-use, dense urban neighborhood is unmistakable.
Four under-construction projects are pictured in this story.
•Alta Depot, 565 West 100 South
•The Rio, 210 S. Rio Grande Street
•CINQ, 203 West 200 South
•Asher Adams Union Pacific Hotel, South Temple at 400 West
Let’s take a look at their construction progress.
But first, looking east from 600 West, let’s take a flight from 250 South to North Temple, ending with a peek north at the Hardware District:
Asher Adams Hotel
The Asher Adams hotel will incorporate the Union Pacific Depot in offering 225 rooms plus food + beverage and conference space.
At the corner of 100 South and 600 West, the 288-unit, market-rate Alta Depot is taking real shape.
Immediately to the north of the Old Greektown TRAX station, at 530 West 200 South, the 203-unit CINQ is making its statement to the street.
At 210 S. Rio Grande Street, the seven-story, 210-unit Rio will offer about a quarter of its homes to people earning 60-80% AMI. It sits on the former site of the 1000-bed Road Home emergency shelter. Across Rio Grande Street is St. Vincent DePaul and the Wiegand Center, which provide homeless services.
