Sugar House & Harvard/Yale

Sugar House has come a long way since refining sugar beets in the 1920's and hosting Salt Lake's first prison in the 1940's. Largely made up of schools, a library, and a furniture district in the 1950's, Sugar House is now a successful commercial hub of office space, shopping, condos, gyms, and restaurants including a couple of microbreweries.

The residential neighborhood runs from the commercial zone of 2100 South to approximately 1300 South and from 800 to 2300 East. Although, if you ask three different longtime residents of Salt Lake or Sugar House, you will likely get three different answers.

Just blocks from the center of Sugar House, a leafy tree-lined neighborhood known as the Harvard/Yale area contains architecturally-pleasing English Tudors and California Bungalows, as well as other early 20th-century Frank Lloyd Wright inspired "Arts and Crafts" homes. Quiet, walkable, and classic, this neighborhood also boasts small popular commercial cross-streets at 1500 East & 1500 South and 1300 South & 1700 East with restaurants, delis, an independent bookshop, and more. Convenient to the University of Utah and with some of the best schools in the city, you can't beat this area for urban living that feels like a small town community.
