I made mention a while ago that with the sale of my house I have moved into a loft in downtown Salt Lake. While I would ultimately like to either build a new modern home or renovate a MCM home, I figured this was a perfect time to try out downtown living. The Patrick Lofts are located at 163 W 200 S in the old Patrick Dry goods building originally built in 1914. The lofts were completed in 2008 and feature 40 individual units, all of which are two bedroom and one bathroom. Units are right around 800 square feet. South facing units feature a great glass garage door that can be opened up to access a small balcony.
All the units have a lovely 13' high ceiling as you can see in the photo of the model unit above. The layout is compact with the private areas such as bedrooms and bathrooms being located in the back, and an open kitchen/living room in the front. They have a surprising amount of storage in them too, which is one thing I was worried about. I didn't have any problems getting all my stuff into the new place.
Lofts are currently for sale starting in the low 200's, or if you are like me and are not quite sure if you want to commit there is a lease option as well. Lease pricing seems extremely reasonable. I am paying $975 a month and that includes all my HOA's and water and sewer.
If you are interested in seeing a unit and getting more information about leasing or purchasing you can contact Gary Howard at 801-706-5866. He's a great guy and is very helpful. Plus I'd love to have a couple more cool neighbors.

And more shot's after the jump.

Great view of downtown. One thing I really love about the Patrick Lofts is how close they are to everything. They are literally 2 blocks from any downtown location from Gateway to Temple Square.
The building was converted to have a wonderful open air interior atrium.
