After a somewhat lengthy delay, the vacant lot at the corner of Clark and Chestnut is seeing action once again as crews work on a new townhouse project. Developed by Col. Jennifer Pritzker's Tawani Enterprises and designed by local architect Booth Hansen, the seven-home collection first broke ground in December of 2015 before going dormant for a number of months. Surprisingly, the residences at 111 W. Chestnut will be available for rent and are yet another example of downtown developers primarily backing rental projects over for-sale properties.
Just next door, the construction site for the upcoming Lakeshore LDS Meetinghouse continues to show progress. The 39,000-square-foot religious building was designed by Salt Lake City's Dixon + Associates. In addition to sanctuary space, it will also contain meeting rooms, administrative offices, an elevated outdoor terrace, and four levels of off-street parking. As things stand now, the seven-story religious structure is awaiting the remainder of its masonry cladding as well as its rooftop steeple.
