21 and View and Hightower Apartments
In the West region of the United States, we’re known for our sterling architectural engineering consultation services. We have performed such services for a plethora of different institutions and businesses, and on a variety of different property projects — whether that be for development, redevelopment, or assessment needs. Whatever your institution and/or business needs when it comes to architectural engineering, we’re here to provide it.
Indeed, among all those various development and redevelopment projects, we’ve tackled a host of apartments, apartment properties, and other residential properties. The design and implementation of the 21 & View mixed-use apartment and commercial development project in the Sugar House neighborhood of Salt Lake City, Utah was indeed one of these projects. Hightower Apartments was another.
21 & View
21 & View is a sustainable mixed-use apartment and commercial development in the Sugar House neighborhood of Salt Lake City, Utah. McNeil Engineering was able to utilize our landscape architectural consulting expertise in order to enact a vision for this contemporary site and the landscape design found within this prime piece of real estate, which overlooks the locally famous Sugar House Park.
The 21 & View site, which currently consists of two buildings containing 29 luxury apartments – and roughly 3,500 sq. ft. of commercial space connected by an open-air walkway is complimented by the sustainability of its structures.
Additionally, this site consists of a permeable parking lot, water-wise plant material, and a highly efficient drip irrigation system we here at McNeil Engineering developed.
The Hightower Apartments property, which was originally constructed in 1963, is in fact one of the earliest and tallest residential towers in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Hightower Apartments abuts the “prominent” Avenues district, which makes it ideally located near the University of Utah, Salt Lake Medical Center, and the Downtown Business District in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The Hightower Apartments and landscape remodel project began, at least for us here at McNeil Engineering, when we were commissioned all the way back in 2013 to re-design the site’s overgrown, outdated landscaping. This property also included the monument sign and porte-cochere.
The details behind developing these properties
We here at McNeil Engineering, in our capacity as the landscape architectural advisors on the 21 & View development project, ensured a multitude of amenities were added throughout the site, including bike racks, garbage disposals, ash urns, benches, raised planters, trellises and site lighting in order to accentuate 21 & View’s landscaping. Additionally, this site lighting also gave the added benefit of providing security to 21 & View’s residents.
21 & View, which is situated on the most convenient and scenic corner in the Sugar House neighborhood of Salt Lake City, Utah, provides an exciting new lifestyle development. It is indeed an exciting addition to the Sugar House neighborhood of Salt Lake City, Utah. Even within this secluded Sugar House neighborhood, the Salt Lake City skyline is prominent, which offers picturesque views of both the Wasatch and Oquirrh Mountain ranges.
As for the Hightower Apartments project, given tight budgets, our team of McNeil Engineering landscape architects envisioned a completed state of the Hightower Apartments and landscape remodel project which would rejuvenate the existing, outdated landscape. In turn, this redevelopment process would bring back the glory of this property’s mid-century modern style.
We provided computer-aided graphics, which helped the client visualize the proposed improvements to the Hightower Apartments and its surrounding landscape environs. This process also involved the seamless transition into the creation of construction documents.
