Another one-story commercial building is being replaced.  Crews have demolished the former City Creek Hearing Center on the 400 East block of 100 South to make way for construction of the 4Forty7 Apartments, a six-story residential development.

The apartments will replace the commercial building and an adjacent surface parking lot on 0.44 acres.  Unlike the previous structures, the 4Forty7 Apartments will occupy the entire parcel with limited rear and side yard setbacks.  Unlike most of the adjacent multifamily developments, the project will have no front yard setbacks and will be built right up to the property line on 100 South.

The development will consist of a two-story parking podium with four floors or residential units above.  The project will units will be market rate with a mix of 55 studio and 31 one-bedroom apartments.  The units will range in size from 400 to 650 square feet.

The parking structure will have just 49 stalls including several electric charging spots.  Most of the adjacent multifamily properties are older and do not include structured parking.  The project will include indoor bike parking and is within a block of four high-frequency bus routes, the 209, 220, 205 and 2 routes that run every 15 minutes on South Temple, 100 South and 200 South respectively.

Both the parking and main entrances will front 100 South.  A lobby and office will wrap around the parking structure at the ground level.  The project will include the standard amenities common to new construction, market rate developments.  Amenities will include a fitness center, hot tub, group room and dog run.  A narrow courtyard will separate the east and west residential wings above the podium.  The gym will open to the courtyard that will house the hot tub and dog run and overlook 100 South.  Because of the interior courtyard, all 86 units will have an exterior balcony or patio.

Construction of the parking podium is currently underway. The project is by the same team that developed the Maven District, a lifestyle and wellness district between Edison Street and 200 East on 900 South.  The Maven opened in October of 2017 and consist of three renovated and one new construction buildings with over 25 leasable commercial units.  The district is anchored by Maven Strong, a rebranding of 9th and 9th Pilates, and Maven Wellness, a mix of businesses that focus on health and wellness.
