The Planning Commission approved a new project that would expand the Central Ninth development corridor further east, building out more along the brand-new 9-Line Trail. 

The project, located at 30 West 900 South, intends to bridge the gap between the new and growing Central Ninth neighborhood and the Liberty Wells neighborhood, placing itself between numerous older uses, including many car lots. 

The original design called for more units of a different breakdown, but the outside details and designs of the project have stayed the same since the application was first submitted early last year. 

The new design lists 145 units, 30 less than the original application, but still maintains the same ground-floor retail spaces ideal for food services. 5,500 square feet of retail space and 2,000 square feet of office space would be provided in total. 

Due to its proximity to transit and the 9-line trail, the building would have 83 parking stalls, as well as bike parking options for residents.  

30 West required a design review process due to its length and height, as it is located in a D-2 zone. The project was approved as long-term plans see the area height increasing and more development to mimic similar heights. 30 West would be seven stories in total, reaching approximately 88 feet with the parapets.

Unit Details 

  • Studios: (456 SF – 485 SF): 57 units
  • One Bedrooms: (571 SF – 682 SF): 78 units
  • Two Bedrooms: (1164 SF – 1196 SF): 10 units
  • Total units: 145 units
