Salt Lake City is currently seeking comments on the newly available Design Guidelines for Historic Apartment and Multifamily Buildings.

The guidelines are currently in draft form and provide information on best practices for maintenance, repair and sensitive alteration for current historic buildings as well as new construction within historic districts.

The design guidelines are written to provide information, advice and guidance for residents, owners, developers, designers and contractors, information and design review criteria for city staff and commissions, as well as providing an information resource for the community as a whole

The Design Guidelines for Historic Apartment and Multifamily Buildings in Salt Lake City have several goals.

  • To enhance the understanding of the history, character and role of historic apartment and multifamily buildings.
  • To provide information on best practices for maintenance, repair and sensitive alteration of historic apartment and multifamily buildings.
  • To provide design advice, guidance and review criteria for sensitive repair, alteration and addition to existing apartment buildings.
  • To provide design guidance and design review criteria for a new multifamily building in one of the city’s local historic districts.

More information can be found on the Salt Lake City Planning Blog or by downloading the draft guidelines directly (here).
