For those readers who haven’t been to Downtown Salt Lake City in a bit, we spent last week catching up with the construction progress of ongoing projects we’ve been covering. From the Depot District on 600 W and I-15, to 500 E in East Central, the flurry of activity continues.

Here’s our photo update of Downtown projects under construction, starting from the west.

Depot District

At the intersection of 600 W and 200 S, tax-credit and micro apartments are taking shape. Central Station East (center, first photo) is occupied, while its cousin to the west, on the corner, has finished its concrete podium. To the west of 600 W is property owned by UTA, north and south of 200 S. The framed building is Greenprint Gateway. North of 200 S, the CINQ and Alta Depot projects are well under way.

The massive 277-unit Gateway 505 (originally Wood Partners, then sold) apartments along 500 W are about to get some sizeable neighbors. CINQ’s (dbUrban) 203 units will front 200 S and 500 W, incorporating the historic Central Warehouse. Alta Depot (Wood Partners), fronting 100 S, will add 288 apartments. Photos by Luke Garrott.

In the Depot District at Rio Grande St and 200 S, the site of the former Road Home emergency shelter, the Rio (dbUrban and Hamilton Partners) will offer 210 dwellings and 4000 sf of retail. Photos by Luke Garrott.

West Downtown

The Olive (CW Urban) fronting Pioneer Park at Broadway and 400 W, is getting its finishes. Photos by Luke Garrott.

On the block to the north, the yellow and red accents on the Paperbox Lofts means they’re getting closer to showtime. The excavation fronting 200 S is another project by ClearWater Homes, the Zephyr Lofts. Photos by Luke Garrott.

La France apartments, and ‘The Courts” cottage-style development behind, soon to be demolished, still stand west of the old Henrie’s Cleaners at 218 Broadway (300 S). A 43-unit project by Axis Architects is finishing with demolition of the former dry cleaners. Photos by Luke Garrott.

On the block to the north, The West Quarter’s first phase is really taking shape at 100 S and 300 W. Photos by Luke Garrott.

Heart of Downtown

255 S State (Brinshore Development) is bringing some allure. Photo at the Moda Luxe scraped site (with Ken Sanders Rare Books banner) left to right: 255 S State, The Warhol adaptive reuse (with bananas), and Liberty Sky. Photos by Luke Garrott.
