Preservation at Work Project House
Utah Heritage Foundation is continually looking for new ways to help communities realize the benefits of historic preservation. Many of Salt Lake City’s historic neighborhoods have seen an increase in homeowners rehabilitating historic homes and creating pockets of revitalization.
Utah Heritage Foundation has partnered with the Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City (RDA) to make a difference in our historic neighborhoods. Officially titled Preservation at Work, these projects will create lasting economic value in a neighborhood revitalization area while also allowing Utah Heritage Foundation to utilize the project for on-site rehabilitation demonstrations. Information and registration for workshops will vary depending on the topic and length of the workshop.
Located between 300 West and the freeway, Pugsley Street has already seen some of the benefits of historic preservation and the completion of the first project house, located at 571 N. Pugsley Street, has helped to propel preservation efforts in this neighborhood.
Our second project with the RDA is located just west of the new Marmalade Branch City Library on Arctic Court. The second project has two components: rehab of a historic 1913 home and construction of a new compatible infill home on the vacant lot next door.
Once the projects are completed, a preservation easement will be put in place, and the house will be sold. Any revenue from the sale will be used towards the next rehabilitation/demonstration property.
