Downtown living—particularly in a loft high above the madding crowd—is coming into its own in Salt Lake City. If you’re curious about living the urban dream, a tour of the Broadway Park Lofts is an opportunity to see the possibilities.

Imagine a loft just steps away from Tony Caputo’s Market (and Frody’s butcher shop therein) and Carlucci’s Bakery. Get your bike tuned at Bingham Cyclery while you have breakfast at Bruges Waffles or a pastry from the Saturday Farmers Market across the street. How about dinner at Tin Angel followed by a Twilight Concert in Pioneer Park.

Who said SLC’s not hep?

OK, the bums in the park can be a downer, but that issue should take care of itself as the area becomes more vibrant.

So, take a break from work Wednesday (May 21) noon to 1:30 p.m. and have lunch at the Broadway Park Lofts, 360 S. 300
West and tour the setup. It's actually part of a Construction Specifications Institute confab, but the public is invited.  Check here for tickets and details.
