600 Lofts

Located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, 600 Lofts brings much-needed housing to a section of the city dominated by car dealerships, surface parking lots, and hotels. The six-story building consists of 274 units in studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations that sit above a two-level parking structure. The units are predominantly rented to individuals earning around 60 percent Area Median Income (AMI).

Using House Trust Fund financing, the project was designed to meet ADA requirements and includes accessible units and parking. The large buildings are set directly adjacent to two major UDOT roadways and the sidewalks connect directly to the buildings. FOCUS civil engineers worked closely with the project team to provide design solutions that not only complied with ADA requirements but also worked with site grades for doorway access. Details such as where to place doors for ADA compliance were carefully coordinated with the architect.

FOCUS also redesigned a bus shelter on State Street to meet UTA design requirements for accessibility and use.
