The transformation of downtown Sugar House is progressing. Not too long ago, the broken-down Sugarmont Apartments in the heart of the business district was the subject of a dispute with a contractor, its ramshackle dressing flapping in the wind. Now its exterior finishes are being applied.
The COVID pandemic may have slowed down, but hasn’t stopped any of these projects in and around the commercial heart of Sugar House.
It wasn’t until August 2020 that this 341-unit Boulder Ventures apartment project was still on hiatus due to disputes with contractors, the stench of its neglected potty holders adorning the sidewalk as well as banners aspiring to an unlikely opening date.
A 59-unit project by Lowe Property Group at 2170 S. McClelland St., Dixon Place, is also nearing completion. Here’s what it looked like in August:
Sugar Alley Apartments
The 186-unit Sugar Alley development by Lowe Property Group will also house 16,000 square feet of retail on the ground floor.
Park Avenue Development
The nine-acre Park Avenue mixed-use development on the former Shopko site is nearing completion of its final phase. The 238-unit apartment building located at 1240 E. Stringham Ave. will join the University of Utah Health Sugar House’s completed satellite medical center and a 150,000 square foot office building.
Sugar City Apartments
On the site of the former Snelgrove Ice Cream at 850 East 2100 South, 270 apartments are on offer.
Sugarmont Place Apartments
A four-story, 77-unit apartment building at 2195 South 900 East has been proposed by Harris Architecture and Spanish Fork-based developers. It’s on the NE corner of 900 East and Sugarmont Drive at S-Line Streetcar.
A mixed-use development by Rockworth Companies and AE Urbia Architects has cleared final design review to the City Planning Commission. Its 107 units will be located above and behind 21,000 square feet of retail space at 2100 East and 2100 South. It will replace some legacy businesses, including the Blue Plate Diner.
