$40M mixed-use development in downtown SLC breaks ground
Salt Lake City— MVE + Partners (MVE), a leading architecture, interiors and planning firm, today announced it has broken ground on 6th & Main, a landmark 283,936-square-foot mixed-use development in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City. Designed for Salt Lake developer, Lowe Property Group, the 8-story structure will include 10,100 square feet of commercial space and 141,149-square-feet of residential apartments. Designed to revitalize the downtown region and infuse a new level of sophisticated urban living, 6th & Main will open for leasing in Fall 2022. Zwick Construction was selected as the general contractor for the project.
Situated at the gateway of downtown, 6th & Main will feature prime ground-floor commercial uses and much-anticipated community conveniences. Key amenities include a two-level fitness center and rooftop clubroom and viewing terrace that will be oriented at the focal corner of 600 South and Main Street to create visual appeal from the street level. These community spaces will also be positioned to complement the iconic massing of the adjacent Grand America – the city’s largest hotel – providing an incredible framed view of the building and downtown skyline.
“We’re honored to work with Lowe Property Group on another mixed-use development designed to help rejuvenate the downtown area,” said Pieter Berger, senior associate partner at MVE. “Built within walking distance to public transportation and complete with walkable amenities, 6th & Main will become a main artery to all that Salt Lake has to offer.”
The 170-unit residential community will include a mix of modern studio, one and two-bedroom market rate apartments for young professionals and small families. Additional resident offerings include a street level lounge, co-working space, parking garage, a fitness center and pool and spa. A centralized community, 6th & Main is located within minutes from Interstates 15 and 80, and within walking distance of Salt Lake’s eclectic shopping and vibrant nightlife scene.
“We are thrilled to have started construction on 6th & Main,” said Ben Lowe at Lowe Property Group. “With Grand America, Little America, and the currently under construction 650 Main office tower on the adjacent corners, as well as a new TRAX stop coming in adjacent to 6th & Main, we believe that the intersection of 600 South and Main Street will soon be one of the most desirable intersections in Salt Lake City. We appreciate working with MVE and Zwick Construction on what we believe will be a beautiful and fitting addition to this primary downtown intersection.”
Boasting a modern, urban design 6th & Main will include natural materials, exposed concrete and contemporary design features that appeal to young professionals and apartment dwellers. MVE will also design the interior spaces of the project.
“We continue to see tremendous interest in downtown Salt Lake City as a hub for business, residents and cultural attractions, said Ben Kolendar, director at Salt Lake City Department of Economic Development. “As the urban core in the state, we welcome developments like 6th & Main which serve as a gateway for all amenities we have to offer while also providing much needed housing in the downtown area.”
In addition to 6th & Main, MVE is working with Lowe Property Group on several other revitalizing mixed-use projects in Salt Lake City, including Sugar Alley, an 8-story, mixed-use community in the Sugar House District; Post House Apartments, consisting of five buildings featuring 580 residential units, and Dixon Place, a boutique, 59-unit, mixed-use property slated for completion in 2021.
