Granary Row was born from a community planning session with over 500 people. There are retail shipping containers and a beer garden made of shipping pallets. The tenants range from from clothing stores to an art gallery, a bike shop, and even the local humane society. To top it off, there is also a performance venue for local artists and a community garden. The retail space has been drawing entrepreneurs that prefer smaller, more affordable spaces that will give them lots of exposure to a unique client base.

The goal of the project is to attract patrons to the area and to help “seed the neighborhood with a steady and diverse stream of creative and driven entrepreneurs.” It contributes to the larger goal of turning the district into a “vibrant, urban neighborhood” with walkable streets and “human-centered neighborhoods.” The project has only been open for a short while, but it’s already generating quite a buzz and bringing new energy to Salt Lake City’s downtown area. The community response has been nothing but excitement.
