In Pictures: Wilmington Gardens creating mid-rise skyline in Sugar House

Wilmington Gardens is adding some height to Sugar House.  At seven floors, the project links the mid-rise cluster between Wilmington Avenue and 2100 South on 1300 East to the emerging cluster surrounding the Sugar House Monument Plaza.

The project is also significant for creating another entrance into Hidden Hollow park.  In the center of Wilmington Gardens will be a plaza that will provide access to Hidden Hollow from Wilmington Avenue.  Retail space will front the plaza, creating a greater pedestrian experience in this section of the neighborhood.

The area could see even more density soon if the proposed 10-floor, 1202 Wilmington project realized.
