26 Jan Sugarmont Plaza
UPDATE: This project was approved by the Planning Commission on January 22, 2020. Now it needs to go to the City Council for final approval.
Sugarmont Plaza is the area where the old DI was at 2234 Highland Drive. Adjacent to it are 3 parcels, which house the old SLC Fire Station #3 (currently the temporary Sprague Library). and a utility building. The addresses are 1085, 1094 and 1104 E Simpson Avenue. The properties are intended to be assembled into all one parcel with the RDA-owned DI parcel and used for a future development. Once the properties are sold to the RDA they would need to be rezoned, probably to CSHBD1 Sugar House Business District 1, so that both parcels have the same zoning.
The Sugar House Community Council has long held out that this parcel would be retail on the first floor and affordable housing on the other floors. We have built well over 1000 units in the area in recent years and only about 100 are affordable units. That is unacceptable. Go here to see the staff report that was reviewed by the Planning Commission.
