Westgate Lofts offers two unique types of loft living — Phase 1 penthouses/lofts and Phase 2 townhouses/lofts. The property includes 2 one-of-a-kind, historic warehouse buildings, connected by a beautifully-landscaped, private courtyard. All told, Westgate houses 72 individual condo units, ranging in size from 1 to 3 bedrooms.
Phase 1 features 9 two-level, luxury penthouses and 46 incredible lofts. The units range from 2 to 3 bedrooms, with 2 or 2.5 baths, and include private walk-out balconies with terrific city, valley and mountain views. Each unit features wood or bamboo flooring and unmatched designer kitchens, including Wolf and Subzero appliances, granite counter tops, glass tile, and custom cabinetry. The penthouses are highly secure, with locked-off floor access and garage parking. While the historic building’s original charm has been maintained, the 18-foot high ceilings offer an open warehouse feel. Exposed ductwork, brick and concrete add to the loft aesthetic. The building’s 100-year-old elevator shaft has been preserved to emulate an old mine shaft [modernized with see-thru glass walls]. Light abounds through the beautiful, seven-story atrium.
Phase 2 features 17 equally lovely lofts/two-story townhouses with exposed brick walls, wide-plank wood floors and soaring ceilings [15 ft. on the main level and 20 ft. on the upper]. The units range from 1 to 3 bedrooms, with 1 or 2.5 baths, and include large walk-out view balconies. Home/office designs with entries on both levels are available. Upgraded design features include kitchen islands with pendant lights, walk-in closets, and recessed lighting, to name a few.
Our Opinion: Located in the dead center of SLC’s entertainment district, Westgate is the ideal opportunity for environmentally-sound loft living. You’re incredibly close to any number of events, activities and restaurants that the city has to offer, including The Gateway, Energy Solutions Arena, concert halls, and art galleries (some located within the development itself). A TRAX stop is literally on your corner. Also well worth noting, in our opinion, is the project’s geothermal system, which used to efficiently heat and cool the units at Westgate. The system taps into the water table 300 feet beneath the city’s streets, enabling Mother Earth to do most of the work. Ultimately, residents will realize long-term cost savings on utility bills, paying anywhere from 25 percent to 75 percent less to heat and cool their homes.
