Developers share details on the building that will replace the historic Utah Theater and alter Salt Lake City’s skyline
More than a year after the City Council agreed to give its historic theater on Main Street to developers, the new owners have released renderings detailing another building that will alter the capital city skyline.
The development will continue the ongoing and rapid addition of housing into Salt Lake City’s Downtown core, adding 400 apartments in a 31-story building that’s just shy of 400 feet tall.
Details for the proposed Main Street Apartments come after years of hand-wringing over the Utah Theater and the gift of the dilapidated building to the Hines development group.
Hines previously had released conceptual drawings showing a 30-story tower with 300 units. The new documents, submitted as a design review application for permission to build, provide many more details about what could be coming to the 100 South block of Main Street.
