This project consisted of the transformation of old Veterans Administration Hospital in the foothills of Salt Lake City’s Avenues District into the city’s first luxury condominium complex, The Meridien. The historic structure was originally built in 1924 on 3.4 acres. The 80,000-sq-ft project and its park-like surroundings afford owners a panoramic view of the Salt Lake Valley, the Wasatch Mountains and the Great Salt Lake.
The building is neo-classical in its design, with elements that are purely Georgian in heritage. The structure is graced by a variety of grand architectural elements, including a symmetrical facade, cornices and parapets and porticos. Garland embellishments on the tympanum frame a small, circular window, while keystones secure each window opening.
