Sugarmont Apartments Construction Progress in Salt Lake City

Take a look at some new drone images we’ve captured of Sugarmont Apartment’s construction progress in 2019! Look at those great mountain views.

Sugarmont Apartments are located in the eclectic Sugar House Neighborhood of Salt Lake City. The Transit Oriented Development apartment complex will add much needed density to the area, replacing two existing abandoned warehouses. From the plaza, a pedestrian path intersects the L-shaped building and pulls the movement of people through the site with connecting paths to adjacent restaurants/bars. Amenities include a fitness center, 3rd floor pool with views towards Fairmont Park, a roof deck looking out to the mountains, and three additional courtyards on top of the podium that offer quieter reflection spaces.

May's Construction Recap

At Studio PBA, we have created a dedicated construction administration department. This creates a multitude of benefits for our firm. By devoting staff strictly to construction administration (CA), each project undertaken by our firm has a team member with intimate knowledge of current construction practices and methods. It allows for more attention to be paid to each project during construction, subsequently minimizing the need for change orders and troubleshooting. Having a dedicated CA team means that the lessons learned on other projects are implemented into the drawings in real time and we're able to take advantage of active learning on projects. Our firm is able to make this very seamless transition between the production department and CA department by having the production project manager involved throughout the CA process.

Summer of 2018 is poised to be a big one for our CA team.  We currently have over ten projects nearing construction completion and several more are slated to break ground this summer.  Our teams are on site almost weekly monitoring the progress of these projects, gathering great ideas, lessons learned, and photos of the progress.

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.

We have just gained access to a new EarthCam time lapse camera that is set up for Sugarmont Apartments, a large project with Boulder Ventures located in the Sugar House area of Salt Lake City.  This project will consist of 352 units over 2.86 acres with a pedestrian plaza and three floors of wrapped parking.  Although there isn't much to see yet, crews have been doing a lot of demolition, taking down a building that previously stood at this location and are moving around lots of earth to prepare for construction to begin.  Be sure to check back with this blog for updates as this project progresses.
