Overview of Salt Lake City
Salt Lake City is a corporate hub of the West
Salt Lake City is known for being the headquarters of corporations like Questar and Sinclair Oil, so it's very accommodating to business workers in all fields. Many of these large businesses, like First American Title, are located in the central business district just to the east of downtown near Central City. Having big corporations near Central City doesn't just mean that people living in townhouse rentals will have a short commute - it also means that there are plenty of other businesses nearby that service professionals, like restaurants, banks, copy centers and shopping.
Renting in City Central provides convenient access not only to these workplaces, but also to the City Library and other government buildings, including Capitol Hill to the north. To the east, the district is connected to the University of Utah campus by light rail along E 400 South. The rail also gives residents easy access to Salt Lake City International Airport - the 22nd busiest in the world - to facilitate business travel. Renters who prefer train travel to air can use the nearby Amtrak station. It has routes to San Francisco and California to the west as well as Denver and more connections in the east.
Not all work, Central City has fun too
After hours, residents can enjoy shopping at City Creek Center, an open-air business, retail and residential complex near Temple Square. In addition to high-end retailers like Brooks Brothers, Tumi and Nordstrom, City Creek Center has a variety of dining options for quick bites or sit-down meals.
For renters who want to get out of the neighborhood for dinner or drinks, there are plenty of options close to Central City townhouses for rent. The nearby downtown area is a great nightlife destination with bars and restaurants such as The Bayou, Bistro 222, Cucina Toscana and Tucanos Brazilian Grill.
Central City is also home to some of the best parks in Salt Lake City, where renters can experience nature, keep in shape or play some tennis. Victory Park, Washington Square, Artesian Well Park and Jefferson Park give residents nearby green spaces to enjoy, but the real unique parks are Liberty Park and Gilgal Sculpture Garden. Liberty features 16 tennis courts, a large pond and dozens of paths on an enormous plot of land. Gilgal Sculpture Garden features one-of-a-kind statues depicting a wide range of things, including a Sphinx replica and biblical sculptures.
