Historic Northwest Pipeline Building Proposal Selection

Salt Lake City has selected Cowboy Partners/Form Development to redevelop the Historic Northwest Pipeline Building Site located at 315 East 200 South in Downtown Salt Lake City after a competitive, community-based selection process. 
Cowboy Partners/Form Development’s proposal includes the historic renovation of the Northwest Pipeline building and the construction of two new structures that will result in 248 new residential units on the property, including 65 permanent supportive housing units, 28 affordable units for those earning 40%-60% of the area median income, and 155 market rate units.  The proposal also includes 11,200 square feet of neighborhood commercial space and 1,210 square feet of rent-free space for a business that provides employment opportunities for chronically homeless individuals.
