News: Hardware Village and Apartments

The February 2020 edition of Utah Construction and Design Magazine features a grand look into the newly completed Hardware Apartments in Downtown Salt Lake City. What was once a gas station, hardware store and the rubble of demolished buildings, has transformed into a village.

Design began with an early morning trip to the location in 2014. Doug Thimm, senior Principal at Arch Nexus, recalls watching people exit the frontrunner train and observing the eclectic mix of individuals it brought in. That’s where the idea for a village – Hardware Apartments – was born.

The east and west buildings together equate to 500,000 square feet of immaculate and unique space. “People are moving away from a suburban existence. They’re embracing the apartment life, the density, the connectedness. But how does that happen? It’s the amenities, it’s the changing attitudes.” – Doug Thimm.

When it comes to amenities, Hardware Village has no shortage. Start with the tranquil, passive spaces like the courtyards with tiered fountains, the library with historically inspired leather chairs, the rooftop spaces with fire pits and views of the city and Wasatch Mountains. The workout space is state-of-the-art too, with a rotating climbing wall, sauna, foosball and ping-pong wall. There’s a kitchen for group entertainment as well.

The design of Hardware Village conserves a precious resource for metro areas – space. Single family housing units place 5-10 homes per acre, where 100 units per acre exist at Hardware. The development met National Green Building Standards and includes proximity to transportation hubs.  Developers and designers were focused on all aspects of a sustainable community.
