In Pictures: Transit-friendly townhome projects in Sugar House

Over 500 new residential units have opened in the Sugar House neighborhood since the fall of 2104.   While these mid-rise projects bring density to the Sugar House Central Business District, just outside of the CBD are two townhome projects that are less intrusive than larger scale developments, yet add density to areas dominated by single family detached homes.

Townhomes and smaller scale multi-family developments, often referred to as the missing middle, can enhance the walkability of a community and provide the density needed to support mass transit.

The S-Line Townhomes and the 24th and 9th Townhomes both have direct access to transit.  The S-Line development,  directly faces the S-Line Greenway and streetcar at 800 East.   The 24th and 9th project is on the 209 Bus Route, a high-frequency bus that runs on 900 East.  Both projects are within a few blocks from the retail nodes along 2100 South.

Listen to Episode Two of the Salt Lake on the Street podcast to learn more about the missing middle.
