This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
It was wonderful to experience the official opening of the new Alphagraphics corporate headquarters in downtown Salt Lake City earlier this year. The building is beautiful and quite a change from what it was over a year ago.
Well, those penthouses are now open and available to purchase. In fact two have already sold. They're known as The Plaza. Altogether, the structure includes nine penthouses that overlook Gallivan Center, downtown Salt Lake and the building's large rooftop patio.
I recently had an opportunity to tour the penthouses. The two-story structures feature open, airy living with a clean, contemporary look. Interior designer C. Dwight Wood explained that the design combines the logic of loft living in New York with brand-new construction. Each penthouse features European-style cabinets, stainless steel countertops, top-of-the-line appliances and bamboo flooring. Views of the city and the surrounding Wasatch Range can be seen through the floor-to-ceiling windows or from the private balcony of each unit. Outside, the rooftop patio features a beautiful garden, complete with flowers, lawn and two large hot tubs.
Living at The Plaza certainly has its advantages. Many of Salt Lake's best restaurants, shopping stores and finest entertainment are within walking distance. A similar setup in Manhattan would cost millions. The Plaza penthouses atop the Alphagraphics building start at less than $350,000--a great value for upscale living in the center of downtown.
