As Salt Lake urbanists wait to hear about new details or groundbreaking dates for larger projects like the proposed convention center hotel, the Regent Street Hotel and other anticipated office and mixed-use projects, construction is still steady in downtown Salt Lake City, especially in and around 200 South.
There are four buildings underway, two hotels and two residential, within a block of 200 South between West Temple and 300 West. The two hotels will both be under the Marriott brand and will add a combined 259 guest rooms. The two apartment buildings, the Milagro and Pierpont Apartments, will add 269 total market rate units.
These projects along 200 South are just one phase in a much larger vision for the area that has the potential to bring new vibrancy to the downtown blocks between the Vivint Smart Home Arena and the downtown core on Main Street.
The 200 West block of 200 South, just west of the Salt Palace Convention Center, is expected to undergo a massive transformation. Over the next few years, the north side of the block will be almost completely redeveloped as part of the Block 67 project. The transformation of the south side of the block is well underway, led by a large two-building development by PEG Development that includes the AC Marriott Hotel and the Milagro Apartments.
The AC Marriott Hotel will have include 164 guest rooms in an eight-story structure. The seven-story Milagro Apartments will contain 182 market rate units and wrap a 325-stall parking garage and ground floor commercial space. The parking garage and entry plaza will be shared by both facilities.
