The Gateway, located in downtown Salt Lake City, is an ambitious mixed-use project including housing retail, restaurants, office space, parking, and entertainment facilities. Constructed on the site of the Union Pacific’s main rail yard, design and construction were on a very tight and critical schedule with the property’s grand opening set to precede the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.
This development sits in the up-and-coming area surrounding 900 South and 900 East in Salt Lake City. Nestled among popular eateries and quaint boutiques, the three-story project has commercial space on the ground floor with two floors of residential above, a residential lobby, and a parking podium.
Built in 1905, this historic Salt Lake City gem served as the city library for decades. The building was later turned into a planetarium, and the transformation caused many architectural features to be lost. When the planetarium exhibits moved elsewhere, the building sat vacant until fine jeweler O.C. Tanner purchased it to use as their flagship retail store.
