Granary District Planning

For several months in 2012, Blalock and Partners were actively engaged in the Granary District re-zoning efforts. These efforts, lead by the Kentlands Initiative, were geared toward revitalizing the Granary District of Salt Lake City, with hopes of “creating walkable, urban, human-centered neighborhoods.”  Design professionals from around Salt Lake City joined in the effort, and the Kentlands Initiative produced a comprehensive document— the “Charette Book”— outlining the team’s master planning recommendations for the Granary District.  This document was submitted to the Salt Lake City Zoning and Planning departments with hopes that it would be incorporated into the next update to the Salt Lake City Master Plan.  As a method of testing and promoting some of the recommendations set forth in the Charrette Book, the Kentlands Initiative constructed a temporary street market, dubbed Granary Row, located at 700 South between 300 West and 400 West.
