The Sean Herrick Apartments consist of 86 single-room-occupancy units. Preservation of this building required extensive seismic upgrades. Each room received new carpet, paint, window coverings, fixtures, microwave, refrigerator and cabinetry. Amenities provided for resident use include: laundry room, individual tenant storage and bike storage, computer room, community TV/game room and community kitchen. The exterior of the building was refurbished with new windows, doors, paint, brick cleaning, new awnings and a new marque sign.
The building formerly known as the Marion Hotel was renamed in honor of the late Sean Paul Herrick who believed in helping those less fortunate than himself. He demonstrated that belief by serving people who reside in the apartments today. This property is assisting Utah by housing homeless persons and contributing to Utah’s goal of ending chronic homelessness as well as preserving an Ogden City historic icon.
This is KIER Construction’s second time remodeling this facility. The first time was in the early 1990’s.
Ray Bertoldi of Bertoldi Architects orchestrated the design.
