New renderings for West Quarter’s Phase 2 show impressive architectural and mixed-use ambition

One of the worst holes in Downtown’s urban fabric will be getting filled by the second phase of the West Quarter project, whose Phase 1, along with the Salt Palace convention center hotel a block away, is sprouting a downtown skyline west of Main Street. 

New renderings of the structures are out, and they are dramatic.

The 4.36 acres of Phase 2 of the West Quarter will front on 200 South, currently a dead zone of surface parking for the Royal Wood office complex at 230 West 200 South.

The project will offer 846 new residential dwellings in three buildings, the tallest of which will be 28 stories.

It also includes a 16-story office building (408,000 sf), as well as over 50,000 sf of ground-floor retail space. A 161-room hotel will be included in the 14-story residential building.

Parking will be provided in two structures, totaling 1535 stalls. The developers, the Ritchie Group and Garn Development, scored $15 million for structured parking from the state which the Salt Lake City RDA acted as a pass-through for.
