New downtown development will be Utah’s first standalone automated parking system

Local News

Salt Lake City will become home to Utah’s first standalone automated parking system.

It’s being called, “Paperbox Lofts”.

The mixed-use development will include 195 apartment units, retail and restaurant space, a park for public use and a 10,000-square foot “pocket park,” open to the public.

As part of an effort to alleviate parking woes, developers are putting in a 7-level, 112 parking space mechanical lift system.

When people arrive, they will pull in and park on one of the six platforms and after they leave their cars, the cars will be taken to their designated spots. When tenants come back to retrieve their car the will swipe a key fob and the system will deliver their vehicle.

Of the 195 apartment units available, 39 will be designated as affordable housing for people earning 60 percent or below the area’s median income.

The development will be less than a block from Vivint Smart Home Arena, home of the Utah Jazz.

The co-developers say they also have plans to improve surrounding roads and walkways as part of the project.
