Walkable communities are simply better.
Even in walkable, bikeable communities sometimes you need to get to far away places—like the bevy of nearby world-class ski resorts. Or one the many colleges or offices in the valley. Or if you’re real lucky—Hawaii.
NEVER FEAR. PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION IS NEAR.
Living Zenith is focused on the heart of Salt Lake’s downtown with projects in 3 hubs famous for their diversity of people, architecture, and business offerings—Liberty Park, Sugar House Park, and 9th & 9th. The eclectic nature and convenient access of these walkable communities make them ideal springboards for strolling to quality shopping, entertainment, and parks. Our walkable communities are ideal because they’re good for you, your neighbors, and the environment.
The Liberty Park neighborhood surrounds the city’s most famous and favorite park, offering picnic areas, children’s playgrounds, horseshoe pits, volleyball, tennis and basketball courts, a jogging path, and a pond with two islands. Tracy Aviary houses many rare and endangered birds.
Adjacent to the park are delightful small businesses while Historic Trolley Square lies a block north brimming with shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. Once a bustling trolley hub, it is now an iconic hangout with eclectic offerings and ambience.
The 9th & 9th neighborhood is perhaps the most walkable neighborhood in Salt Lake City. As with Liberty and Sugar House, individuals, couples, and families enjoy living amidst a variety of homes—from Tudor to Modern—as well as unique retail space. Enjoy boutique restaurants, quaint coffee shops, an Italian gelateria, a yoga center, and the Tower (Salt Lake City’s oldest operating theater). The annual 9th and 9th Street Festival arrives each fall offering live music and local food.
SUGAR HOUSE PARK
9th & 9th
Sugar House Sugar House, named after an historic sugar factory, remains one of Salt Lake City’s most beloved areas. Unique homes, tree-lined streets, and proximity to the UfofU/medical complex all compliment this neighborhood. The business district is dotted with independent clothing stores, coffee shops, restaurants, and studios, plus eclectic entertainment and quaint consignment shops. At the heart of Sugarhouse is the park—one of the largest and most beautiful in the city, comprising a lake, jogging/biking trail, soccer fields, baseball diamonds, and volleyball courts.
Throughout the country, residents consistently vote city parks as one of the most valuable amenities in their neighborhood.
Not only are parks good for recreation, they also are good for the soul and the environment. In fact, people who live near green spaces live longer and are happier. Our Living Zenith communities are strategically close to parks.
