Westside affordable housing anyone could love

By Katherine Pioli

The Giv Group, a Salt Lake-based team of developers and planners, is working on a new affordable housing development they are calling Project Open that will offer along with single bedroom units a limited number of art studios, available for approved residents.

The development is planned for Salt Lake’s Guadalupe neighborhood, 355 N. 500 West, and will include features designed to attract not only artists but those interested in environmentally conscious living. The Giv Group is expecting the new apartment complex to be 100% solar-powered and its proximity to public transit, a third mile from Trax and the FrontRunner, will help commuters travel without their cars. Plans for the pet-friendly complex also include a community clubhouse, fully equipped gym, sun decks, community gardens, an electric vehicle charging station and bike repair stations.
