Anyone seeking a luxurious approach to urban excitement found the perfect place to call home with the opening of 4th West. Salt Development envisioned these downtown Salt Lake City apartments to reclaim an area that had incredible untapped potential, creating a resort atmosphere within a district undergoing a boom of residential reinvigoration. With almost 500 units, 4th West is likely the largest single-building apartment complex in Salt Lake City’s history.
The structural and interior design of 4th West takes cues from the area’s unique historical background. Timeless architecture serves as a versatile canvas, playing host to aesthetic accents that draw inspiration from the warehouses and horse stables that once occupied the plot.
A Closer Look at the 4th West Sky Lounge
The rooftop of 4th West is called the Sky Lounge and offers an experience all its own. Residents can swim in the zero-edge lap pool or soak in the all-seasons spa, the perfect way to relax after a game on the multi-sport athletic court. Ample deck seating, fire pits, and grilling stations offer fun places to gather with friends while enjoying panoramic views of the SLC skyline and Wasatch Mountains.
This photography project focuses on The Clubhouse, a stylish indoor gathering area that overlooks the Sky Lounge and shares its incredible views. The Clubhouse is equipped with a professional demonstration kitchen along with reservable event and dining spaces. Visually, this area is a fantastic showcase of the design and architecture elements that make 4th West so distinctive.
You can see the industrial warehouse influence expressed through the smart use of materials. The face of the bar island is clad with bold wood planks, the weathered finishes standing out with high decorative contrast. Exposed rivets dot the supports, a theme continued along the back of the stools. Satin-finished stainless appliances serve as a perfect complement.
Sleek modern materials serve as the perfect counterbalance to the warehouse elements. The smooth granite bar top, the glossy white countertops, the silky cabinet faces, the bright open spaces – all this comes together to ensure the kitchen area maintains the sense of contemporary luxury that gives 4th West its high-end appeal.
Pictured on the right is a small example of the type of artwork to be found throughout 4th West, simple on-theme pieces that emphasize material.
While the kitchen itself uses a dark and modern theme, the dining area embraces rustic elegance. The farmhouse benches, Louis-style chairs, and bold pedestal tables all feature weathered natural finishes for a light and welcoming look.
The gorgeous Sky Lounge clubhouse is only one of many gathering spaces available to 4th West residents, each one with a distinct blend of warehouse revival and modern luxury themes.
More About 4th West Apartments Downtown SLC
The complex at 4th West offers downtown Salt Lake City studio apartments, one-bedroom apartments, and two-bedroom apartments. The prices are some of the highest in the area – starting at just over $1000/month for the studio apartments all the way to over $6500/month for the spectacularly appointed High Country penthouses.
Despite the sky-high costs, the leases were snapped up at record pace. The reason just might be the incredible luxury amenities only 4th West can provide. Apartments are furnished with quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, high-tech Nest thermostats, with enviable kitchen islands and dazzling sky lights in some of the larger floor-plans.
Residents can enjoy the sports bar with its big-screen golf simulator, putting green, billiards table, and shuffleboard table. Business-minded residents can catch up on emails at the WiFi lounge or coffee bar, or even take advantage of the fully equipped conference rooms and rental office spaces. Even four-legged residents have a place to call their own with the dog grooming station and gated paw park.
Behind This 4th West Photoshoot
I got access to photograph the "sky lounge" for these downtown Salt Lake City luxury living apartments in order to capture the kitchen that one of my clients put in. When I was done, I took the opportunity to snap a few more photos of the lounging areas. Looking out at the pool made me quite jealous – it's a huge pool, it's out in the sun, and you have the whole view of downtown Salt Lake City while you sunbathe and relax.
Everything inside this development is new and clean. The staff were on the top of their game, showing people around while I'm taking my stills. Hearing one of the price points from the tour guide made my eyes pop, but it makes sense with all the amenities you get while living here.
Capturing these photos was a long process. I believe I spent 2 and a half hours to capture 11 shots total.
