A new boutique apartment community developed by Lowe Property Group and designed by MVE + Partners has opened in Salt Lake City’s Sugar House neighborhood. The 59-unit, 100% leased Dixon Place features a modern and sophisticated style with nods to the area’s industrial and artistic heritage.
The six-story multifamily community is comprised of 49,039 square feet of rentable space, with 35 one- and 24 two-bedroom units. The 2,200-square foot ground-floor commercial space houses Lowe Property Group’s newest headquarters, which MVE + Partners also designed.
“Salt Lake City is one of the fastest-growing regions in the U.S. and an extremely promising area for multifamily real estate development,” said Pieter Berger, senior associate partner at MVE + Partners. “We are excited to complete a new design that reflects the rich history and culture of the Sugar House neighborhood while providing modern features and amenities renters desire.”
The community’s name pays homage to the Dixon family, who previously owned the property in the early 1900s and was one of the original settlers in the neighborhood.
“My wife’s great-grandfather, George Dixon, was one of the founders of Sugar House, and we are honored to pay tribute to him and the Dixon family for their contributions to the Sugar House community,” said Alex Lowe, principal at Lowe Property Group.
The community acknowledges the past with exposed brick and concrete while incorporating modern touches of glass and steel elements. Nestled in the heart of the Sugar House neighborhood, it is in close proximity to transit, outdoor recreation, shopping, art galleries, and a lively nightlife scene.
The units feature oversized floor-to-ceiling windows as well as washers and dryers. Amenities include a business lounge and conference room for remote workers, a fitness center, bike storage, a bark park, electric-vehicle charging stations, a coffee bar, and a pool table. A highlight of the lobby space is a two-story living green wall inspired by the mountain vegetation surrounding Salt Lake City’s desert environment.
“As a family business that has called Salt Lake City home for many years, we are excited to house our new company headquarters in Dixon Place while also providing a desirable housing option for the Sugar House neighborhood,” said principal Ben Lowe. “We are seeing MVE + Partners’ vision that honors the area’s past with a modern and sophisticated twist to come to fruition.”
Dixon Place is one of several projects that MVE + Partners has designed for Lowe Property Group. A fourth development, Post House in downtown Salt Lake City, is in the works with Lowe Property Group, Q Factor, and BCG Holdings.
