About the property

850 Sq. Ft. Loft Condo With Mountain Views In The Heart Of Salt Lake City

If you have been surfing VRBO for the perfect Salt Lake City property, you needn’t look further. You have just landed on the jewel of loft condos in downtown Salt Lake City (327 West 200 South). This beautifully renovated urban chic condo is within walking distance of the Gateway Shopping Center, Energy Solutions Arena, and Salt Palace Convention Center.

Salt Lake Valley’s light rail system (Traxx) is on the corner and has a stop coming from the airport two blocks away. It is five blocks from Temple Square and the new City Creek Shopping Center. With all of the 'Big City' conveniences, it's hard to believe that there are a dozen world class ski resorts within an hour’s drive. If you're looking for the perfect base camp for your next Utah ski vacation, this condo could be the ideal fit.

As of this writing (Jan 2014), this condo has undergone a COMPLETE makeover by one of SLC's most sought after designers. With new paint, carpet, hardwood floors, cabinets, quartz countertops, appliances as well as a total re-do of the bathroom. There was not a single thing in the apartment that was not replaced. It is BRAND NEW!

The condo has been professionally decorated resulting in an open loft feeling you will be hard to find at this price. Secure parking, WiFi, full size washer/dryer, DirecTV and more.

Why Jennifer Thornton chose Salt Lake City

As a young married couple attending the University of Utah, we fell in love with downtown Salt Lake City, and always talked about being able to buy a little 'Urban Cabin' one day in the center of SLC. In 2008, we were fortunate enough to find this beautiful little condo, and have absolutely loved it. Whenever we are looking for a little escape from Suburbia, it's nice to be able to head to the 'Big City' for a couple of days. We love being within walking distance to all of the arts, restaurants, and entertainment in SLC.

What makes this condo unique

Our building sits in what is called the Warehouse District of SLC. The building is over 100 years old, and is the original home of an old toy manufacturer. The building was converted to condos in the 1990's but retained much of the original architecture. The exposed brick and beams make it one of the most unique condo buildings in SLC. We literally searched every condo project in SLC before we settled on this building. It's so unique. We just love it. You can't beat the location either. We are literally walking distance to everything in downtown SLC.

A lovely loft in SLC

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in SLC for a convention and found this condo very well located within walking distance from the Salt Palace Convention Center. Location is a thing, but it doesn't make everything. This place was also charming, with a nice decoration and all the amenities we were looking for. The check-in was made super easy by the manager and everything was just perfect for our entire stay. Highly recommended!

I stayed at this beautiful loft during a medical conference and the location was perfect - just two blocks from the convention center. This was a perfect alternative to a hotel room.

Modern, Clean, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the perfect place for me to spend a week in SLC. It has a great kitchen to cook in, and the layout of the rest of the apartment is very comfortable. And the building was very quiet too. I loved it.
