Central Ninth Development


C9 LogoCentral Ninth lies in the middle of the east and west neighborhoods that have long been self-cultivating along 900 South. Central Ninth boasts a unique mix of charming bungalows and tree-lined streets with several bars, and an array of locally-owned restaurants. Central Ninth is home to long-standing local businesses like Henries Dry Cleaner and Kaiser Texas BBQ and neighborhood newcomers Atlas Architects, Blue Copper Coffee Room, and Sage's Cafe. With freeway entrances on two sides, the 9 Line bicycle lanes, and a light rail station at its heart, Central Ninth is one of the most accessible neighborhoods in Downtown Salt Lake City.

Future Development Opportunities

The first of five development Requests for Proposals (RFPs) were released in 2014 and developers selected. The RDA will release the additional RFPs during 2015 and 2016. For each, the RDA will be requesting proposals that contribute to the activity on the street and increase the number of people that visit, work, or live in Central Ninth through building design, scale, use, and programming. To learn more, see the following power point presentation: Central Ninth Development Presentation (PDF). See the schedule and property details below.

Community-Involved Redevelopment

The RDA has worked closely with the Central Ninth residents and business to plan for the future of this growing neighborhood business node. Community representatives will continue to participate in the selection of development proposals for each site in Central Ninth. The Central Ninth community developed the following narrative to help guide the vision for the neighborhood: 

The Central Ninth neighborhood has the rare quality of being simultaneously quaint and connected. Defined by front porches and single-family dwellings on tree-lined streets and a diverse array of restaurants, Central Ninth is also the home to many locally-owned service providers and small manufacturers. The heart of our neighborhood is characterized by unique gathering places; a coffee shop patio, the community garden, and a recently activated community center at the Local First Utah headquarters. Located just east of the Granary, and south of Downtown, no other area shares such easy access to Trax, the freeway, and city street corridors, as well as being walkable and bikable to the rest of the city. It's easy to get here and we welcome you!
