Just over a decade ago KIER Construction teamed up with Big-D Construction to create a fabulous resort on the south end of the Las Vegas Strip for Wyndham Vacation Resorts. It is a Mediterranean style oasis on the outer edge of the pulsating light, theme park casinos, and “what happens in Vegas…” activities that make the strip so popular.
Today KIER and Big-D (KD Construction) have reunited to build two new, high end urban towers, and a row house that will add 453 living spaces to the block at 400 West and North Temple in Salt Lake City. This new community, called Hardware Village, is situated just north of Salt Lake’s historic Hardware Building.
West Hardware Village is on the rise and will house 267 of the new units. This seven-story building wraps around an eight-level parking structure with an amenities loaded sky deck. The first two floors are designated for fifty town home spaces and two hotel units for out of town guests to reserve. Top floor residents will be able to choose from forty luxurious penthouse spaces. The filling for this gourmet sandwich will be four stories of high end stacked flat units.
East Village will soon follow with 186 units contained in five floors of wood framed residential above a two-story concrete podium. Like the first building, East will wrap around a parking structure. Unlike the first building, the eight townhomes for East Village will be in a separate row house with four units stacked on top of four units. An interior courtyard with a fountain and a reflection pool will be shared by both buildings.
SALT Development and KBS are the owners of this beautiful new environment. Their goal is to create harmony between the iconic Hardware Building and the new Hardware Village towers.
The experts at Architectural Nexus have provided a design that is comparable to a five star, world class resort. Exterior finishes include a high percentage of brick, stucco, Cementous siding, Ipe Brazilian hardwood and cedar. The townhome spaces include polished concrete floors and walls. The West Village’s sky deck will host an infinity pool, outdoor fireplaces and gathering areas. Overall, the finishes promise to add the “wow” factor to this eclectic, downtown urban haven.
Another bonus for this already excellent site is its close proximity to the North Temple TRAX and FrontRunner Stations. Residents will be steps away from shopping, entertainment, outdoor recreation, and all that beautiful downtown Salt Lake City has to offer.
