Alta Gateway Complex Wins Development of the Year in Salt Lake City

SALT LAKE CITY, April 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Wood Partners, a leader in real estate development and construction, announced their downtown development, Alta Gateway Station, has been named "Development of the Year" by the Utah Apartment Association.

The Utah Apartment Association hires a secret shopper to shop all of the nominated properties. Properties are judged on the development design, comfort through features and amenities, how the development adds to the neighborhood and if it complements the surrounding areas well. The Utah Apartment Association also judged staff knowledge, customer service and the cleanliness and maintenance of the building. This is the first award for Wood Partners from the association.

“I grew up in Utah and am a graduate of the University of Utah. I have pursued development opportunities in the Salt Lake City market for almost 25 years and seen the tremendous growth and change,” said Director for Wood Partners Tim McEntee. “I am ecstatic that our first project in Utah is being recognized for our thoughtful design and best-in-class service that Wood Partners is known for.”

Alta Gateway Station is a transit-oriented community located next to The Gateway mall, which is in process of an extensive $100 million renovation. The Gateway features entertainment attractions like The Depot concert venue, Wiseguys Comedy Club, Megaplex Theatres and the Clark Planetarium. A new Dave and Buster’s restaurant and arcade, the first in Utah, is slated to open in May. The Gateway mall is the largest, open-air retail complex in Salt Lake City, and is quickly becoming one of the premier dining and entertainment spots for local residents, featuring local food trucks and events like the thriving Urban Flea Market. Alta Gateway Station is in an ideal location for young professionals to take advantage of the vibrant offerings in downtown SLC while having immediate access to multiple modes of transit including TRAX and FrontRunner.

“We’re thrilled that Alta Gateway Station has been recognized by the Utah Apartment Association,” said Clay Iman, director for Wood Partners, who managed the development from its early stages. “Our goal was to develop a project that delivered top-tier amenities while creating a sense of community, and our terrific on-site management team has really brought that vision to life.”

The 277-unit community, managed by Wood Residential Services, features studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans. Alta Gateway Station also features a rooftop deck with entertainment kitchen, pool and hot tub, cyber café, game room, wine storage, a clubroom, fitness center, bike/ski repair shop, dog wash and dog park.

"As American cities continue an upward trajectory toward reinvestment—one catalyzed by a growing population of people favoring concentration over sprawl—we are faced with the prospect of knowing thy neighbor a little better."  Camron Bridgford, one of Denver Infill's bloggers begins.  He starts by explaining how the benefits and attributes that make the cohousing community style more and more popular.  He then gives a great history of the structure, formally owned by Sisters of the Order of St. Francis.
