Project Areas

To work efficiently and strategically, the RDA specifies certain areas in which to focus efforts by prioritizing projects and programs. Some of these “project areas” currently collect tax increment, while others are no longer collecting, but lingering redevelopment projects are still taking place. The RDA is also authorized to undertake affordable housing projects anywhere in the City. (More information on how the RDA funds such projects is available on our Affordable Housing page.)

Below is information on active full- and limited-use project areas and current redevelopment projects happening therein, as well as a list of Citywide Housing projects in which the RDA is involved.


Central Business District Project Area

As a key commercial heart of Salt Lake City, the Central Business District Project Area (CBD), guiding plans in this area are focused on economic development and growth through new commercial & housing development, building rehabilitation, and public improvements.

Citywide Housing

This is achieved through a number of ways including land assembly and resale, developer assistance, low-interest loans to non-profit developers, and expanding the overall housing stock of the city.
