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. The Belvedere was built in 1919, and was originally a hotel that was meant for long-term stays. It has the special designation of being on the National Register of Historic Places, and was converted into condo units in 1978.
The Belvedere lobby feels like that of a 5 star hotel. It has black and white checkerboard marble flooring, a grand crystal chandelier, and is lined with mirrors, like the palace of Versailles. This particular unit on the third floor is being rented furnished, with original Charles and Ray Eames, Milo Baughman, Mies van der Rohe, Harry Bertoia, Heywood Wakefield, and Edward Wormley furniture. The fabulous abstract and pop-art pieces will also remain. The condo features exposed brick walls, mid-century modern and industrial lights, exquisite concrete floors, a milk-crate closet, and a truly one-of-a-kind kitchen backsplash that is made from the backs of University of Utah lockers. High ceilings, and four large windows make this condo feel spacious, but it also has a very cozy feel. A building riddled with this much history and style is bound to be a fantastic and inspiring crash-pad for any want-to-be city dweller, entrepreneur, writer, artist, or musician.
The building is secure, and is accessed by key fobs. The building is not pet friendly. Utilities such as water, sewer, gas, garbage are included. Available June 1st.
