1701 S 1100 East (Former Salt Lake Costume Building) has filed an application for a Planned Development to renovate the existing building into 19 apartment units. This is a Planned Development because they want decorative balconies and planters that project 18” into the required front and corner side yard, 5’ of additional building height, and 3 water tower stealth antennas on the roof of the building.

The SHCC has been given notice of a petition to rezone 1316 E Downington Ave. The request will allow a building up to 30 feet and the proposed project calls for 3 townhomes. The following documents were what is filed with the city and given to the SHCC. Unfortunately there is no rendering to actually show us what the project will look like or function with relationship to the neighborhood or the street. The developer will be at the August 21st Land Use & Zoning Committee meeting at Sprague Library. This meeting is open to the public and we encourage you to come and ask questions and get more information and give us feedback.
Rezone petitions will go before the Planning Commission for a recommendation and then go to the City Council for final approval.

The owners of the ShopKo block have submitted their proposal to SLC Planning for approval. They are requesting a Planned Development and Conditional Building and Site Design Review to build two office buildings with parking structures, and a multi-family residential building with ground floor retail.
The Planned Development review is related to the location of the two office buildings as they do not have frontage on a public street. New buildings in this configuration are typically required to go through Planned Development review.. Your comments and feedback regarding this point would be helpful to hear.
The Conditional Building and Site Design review is related to the buildings being over 50 feet in height. All buildings over 50′ in the Sugar House Business District-1 zone are required to go through the Conditional Building and Site Design Review (CBSDR) process. While the height is allowed in the zone, the overall project must be reviewed for compliance with the CBSDR standards and other guidelines from the Sugar House Master Plan. The developer has been doing putting together their proposal and you can see more at their website http://www.sugarhousehello.com. You can also read the Shopko_Input Letter and the information sheet given to us by SLC Planning.
The applicant will be coming to attend the Land Use & Zoning Committee meeting May 15th at Sprague Library at 6:00 pm.
