In Pictures: The scaffolding is coming down in Sugar House

Two of the largest projects under construction in Salt Lake City are nearing completion in the Sugar House neighborhood.  The exteriors are nearly finished as evidenced by the removal of almost all of the scaffolding with both projects having only select sections still surrounded by scaffolding.  While one project is emerging as a nice mixed-use development (Sugar House Crossing) the other is questionably designed and doesn’t visually fit the neighborhood (Liberty Village).   Unflattering architecture aside, both projects added density to the area and will bring hundreds of new residents into the heart of Sugar House.
