High-Rise Downtown Belvedere Condo For Rent

Price: $1,050/month

Property Details: 400 square feet | 1 bedroom | 1 bathroom

Bri’s Perspective: The Belvedere is a highly desirable and prestigious building. It is equivalent to a New York style high-rise condo, but is right in the very heart of downtown Salt Lake City. The building is located next to O.C. Tanner, the Eagle Gate, City Creek, Harmons Grocery, TRAX, a wide variety of restaurants and shopping, and is just blocks away from the State Capitol.

It has the special designation of being on the National Register of Historic Places, and was converted into condo units in 1978. Continue Reading

I was impressed, and absolutely blown away! Continue Reading
