Design Review & Planned Development

Pickle & Hide

Petition Number: PLNPCM2023-00187 & PLNPCM2023-00411

Zoning District: CG – General Commercial

Council District: D4 – Represented by Ana Valdemoros

Salt Lake City has received a request from Craig Henry with LRK, Inc., property owner representative, requesting Design Review approval to develop a mixed-use project at approximately 349 West 700 South. The site consists of eight parcels totaling approximately 2.55 acres (111,000 square feet). The subject property is located in the CG General Commercial District.

There are 141 residential units proposed ranging from studios to two-bedroom apartments. The project also includes small scale retail options and office space. A midblock walkway provides a connection between the existing Pickle and Hide buildings and the new development. The walkway goes from 400 West eastwards and then north to 700 South.

The development is 7 stories tall and includes two existing buildings (the Pickle & Hide structures) that will be adaptively reused for the project. The Utah Pickle Company building was constructed in 1893 and the Bissinger & Co Hides building was constructed in 1919. Design Review approval is required to increase the maximum building height from 60 feet to 89 feet.

Planned Development approval is required for the following:

  • A reduction in the parking requirements from 254 stalls to 163 stalls.
  • A reduction in the front yard and landscape yard area from 10 feet to 5’8”.
  • A reduction in the rear yard and landscape yard area from 10 feet to zero feet.
  • Request to locate landscaping on top of the structures instead of on the ground.
