In Pictures: next phase in North Temple housing node is nearing completion

Construction is nearing completion on several large apartment complexes in the new housing node west of the intersection of North Temple and Redwood Road.  The three projects, the North Temple Flats, the Meridian and the second phase of the West Station Apartments, have topped out or are nearly topped out.  By the end of this year, 581 new units will be completed within two blocks of the 1940 W. North Temple TRAX Station. The projects are situated at the intersection of three main transportation corridors, the TRAX Green Line which runs to the airport to the west and downtown Salt Lake City to the east and Interstates 80 and 215.

North Temple Flats

The North Temple Flats will include 70 market rate and 98 income-restricted units in the four-story 168-unit apartment complex at the intersection of Redwood Road and the I-215 overpass. The first of the three buildings appear to be framed out with the other buildings under way as well.  The project will include 157 surface parking stalls that will be directly west of the buildings.

The Meridian

The 265-unit Meridian Apartments are nearing completion on North Temple just west of Redwood Road.  The project includes two L-shaped four-story buildings that wrap around a clubhouse and surface parking just south of Sutherland’s Lumber.  Exterior work is underway on both buildings in the market rate project.
