Salt Lake City, UT
Pipeline Lofts delivers a contemporary mixed-use enclave dedicated to the community and provides needed housing to the downtown area. This urban infill site was home to a large parking lot that serviced a single-story building, which was demolished for construction, and a nine-story historic building, which was required to remain on the site. The historic building, previously dedicated to office use, underwent both exterior and interior renovations transforming it into eight-stories of residential over one-story of retail. A deep desire to give back to the community drove many site planning decisions from the creation of a public plaza and art space to the design of three distinct housing types, market-rate, affordable and permanent supportive housing. All three buildings incorporate alternative uses on the ground floor including social enterprising spaces, small business development space, food and beverage, and retail.
