255 South State Street

The new community at 255 South State brings a 190 unit mixed use development to the downtown urban core including much-needed affordable and workforce housing invigorating the neighborhood and creating a lively live/work/play environment. At eight and 12 stories, the two new towers will augment the city skyline by combining the elegant look of contemporary glass and sleek metal with the industrial feel of an artist loft community – which utilizes galvanized steel awnings and detailing, aluminum paneling and brick facades. The two towers create a public paseo from State Street carrying pedestrians from the urban streetscape through a commercial corridor, into a sweeping outdoor space that will host events, dining and concerts. The paseo is activated by a ground-floor food hall concept and community amenity space for residents and neighbors alike. The historic Cramer House, which will be restored and reopened as a unique culinary experience, sits directly on the public open-space component and will actively engage the public realm with an outdoor-dining component. The project was envisioned in partnership with the Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City with additional support from the City’s Housing and Neighborhood Development department, the Olene Walker Housing Loan Fund, the Salt Lake County and the Housing Authority of SLC.
