The Hardware District is a multi-phase, mixed-use market rate project under construction directly north of The Gateway, between 400 West and 500 West and North Temple and 300 North.
Developed by SALT Development, the project is two full blocks long and a block wide that is over 4 football fields long and two football fields wide.
The project includes three large residential buildings with 906 apartments, 42 townhomes and two commercial structures totaling 260,000 square feet of office space. The 4th West Apartments (in red on the site plan) and the dog park are completed. The Hardware West residential building is well underway and the Hardware East residential building is now rising above the ground. Construction timelines for the Hardware Station and Hardware Crossing commercial buildings have not yet been announced.
Another project designed by Architecture Belgique (see also 4th West and North Sixth apartments in the immediate area) is under construction on North Temple at 300 West. The project, the Skyhouse apartments, is just north of the Triad Center, south of West High School and east of the Hardware District.
While the 240 unit market rate development will not have any ground floor commercial, the ground floor residential units will have back patios along the street. The two floors of parking are currently under construction and four floors of residential units will sit above the parking structure that will also be wrapped with residential units on the elevations facing 300 West and North Temple.
