This is the SW corner of 2100 South and 1100 East in the Sugarhouse area of Salt Lake City, within walking distance of my house. Up until 2006 it was a busy business corner, with an eclectic collection of a dozen or so small, local businesses.
A developer bought up the property, moved the businesses out of there and leveled the entire corner, promising a corner with open green, retail, office and residential spaces. Then the Great Recession hit, the money dried up and the neighborhood was left with what has been named The Sugarhole. Only now is there again talk about putting something there, although downsized from the original plan.I give you “a neighborhood in transition”. The first and third pictures were taken in 2007, the comparison ones were taken this week. As things progress, if and when, you will probably get to see the continuing transition.
