The Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City, or RDA, is putting forth two large pieces of land at-the-ready for redevelopment.

These properties are at 255 South State Street and 500 W. North Temple Street, which is the former property of the Overniter Motel.

Amanda Holty from the RDA and Annie Davis of the city’s Department of Economic Development joined us to talk about these properties and what they mean to the capital city’s economic vitality.

The RDA is currently accepting submissions from experienced developers who are interested in partnering up to design and construct mixed-use, mixed-income projects on these sites.

The redevelopment of these sites would provide ground-floor retail space and upper-level housing.

The City is committed to building housing for people of all income levels, so the RDA is requesting that the residential components of these developments include a minimum number of affordable units.

Both sites are also located directly adjacent to TRAX transit lines.

Submissions of qualifications for development of the State Street property are due on Monday, April 23, and submissions for the North Temple property are due May 30th.
