New development replaces blighted area in North Salt LakeMar 01, 2021 12:02PM ● By Becky Ginos
NORTH SALT LAKE—The property along Hwy 89 where the old Rice and Strand building and Hughes RV site once stood is now slated to become a new mixed-use development.
“The developer just submitted a revised application,” said North Salt Lake City Manager Ken Leetham. “It will have four buildings. The first building will be commercial on the bottom and residential apartments on the top. The other three buildings will be multi-family residential. It will be nice.”
The plan calls for 246 units total, he said. “The property is about five to six acres. Chili Amour has indicated they would like to stay in North Salt Lake.”
Leetham said the city had ordered the old building to be demolished. “There were broken windows, graffiti and a homeless element. It was becoming a blighted area.”
The proposal will still have to go through the approval process, he said. “It will have to go before the city council. We’ll have that on the agenda in the next few weeks.”
