Art and much much more!

Adam Kalkin – City Center Lofts

Adam Kalkin - City Center Lofts

There once was an old woman who lived in a shoe; unfortunately, it was extremely impractical in that it wasn’t very spacious and always smelled of feet. I think she would’ve been much more at home in the U.S.’s first Mid-rise container building, slated to be finished by March 2009 in Salt Lake City. The project, City Center Lofts, designed by container architecture expert Adam Kalkin, is considered eco-friendly thanks to it being constructed from 50% recycled content. Not only is this eight-unit super-condo located to plenty of Downtown SLC amenities, but is has a few added features of it’s own such as on demand water heaters, a green roof, tons of natural light and ventilation, and high performance windows. Did I mention the ground level will house an art gallery. Sounds like paradise on earth, minus the swimming pool. Now, I wonder if the folks who move in get first dibs on displaying their art in the gallery?
