In pictures: Five Central Ninth projects are nearing completion

There is a lot of residential development underway in Salt Lake City, and while so much of it can feel dominated by large projects with large footprints, in the Central Ninth it is smaller scale projects that are leading the neighborhood’s revival.  There are five projects under construction that are fully framed out and should be completed by the summer.  Those projects: 1015 Apartments, Central Ninth Place (phase one), Washington Street Townhomes, Greenprint Apartments (phase one) and the Jefferson Walkway cottage homes will add a collective 103 units to the neighborhood and are located on the 1000 South block of 200 West, 900 South block of Washington Street and 800 South block of 200 West respectively.

The Central Ninth neighborhood utilizes form-based zoning, which allows for minimal setbacks and encourages projects that engage the street.  In addition, there are no parking requirements for new projects in the Central Ninth neighborhood.  Of the five projects that are nearly completed, only one, the 1015 Apartments will include off-street parking.

Even though five projects are nearly complete, the neighborhood will still be busy with construction crews.  There are currently four projects in the early stages of construction (including the second phase of the Greenprint Apartments) and another four projects that should start construction later this year (including the second phase of the Central Ninth Place development).
