6th and Main has seen dramatic changes over the past few weeks as it has risen vertically. The downtown Salt Lake City project began just over one year ago in June 2020.
The project is divided into two phases. Phase one includes levels 1-2, as well as the east half of levels 4-8. For this phase, the team is currently closing in the roof and working on MEP rough-in. Phase two of the project includes level 3, the west half of levels 4-8, a courtyard, and pool. These areas are currently in the framing stage. Within the next couple of weeks, drywall and windows will be installed, beginning on phase one. Scaffolding will also be set up in preparation for stucco on the exterior of the building.
At its completion, 6th and Main will feature 170 luxury residential units, ample retail space, a street-level lounge, business centers, a fitness center, pool, spa, clubhouse, and indoor/outdoor roof terraces for events and gatherings.
Throughout construction, the project team has faced some challenges due to the tight site. The property limits reach within feet of a neighboring apartment complex and warehouse. Additionally, the north and west sides of the project sit adjacent to two busy boulevards in Salt Lake City. Power lines run above both of these streets, presenting hoisting challenges.
The team also has to work around material procurement issues due to COVID-19 and other delays. To help with this, when certain materials cannot be procured, the team requires the supplier to provide explanatory documentation and alternate options for the material. This has helped the team stay on track and keep the client informed.
Even with these potential setbacks, the team has worked hard on this impressive project. Thanks to the team for their passion and dedication!
