Salt Lake City Neighborhoods: Capitol Hill

Updated: Mar 25

Salt Lake’s Capitol Hill neighborhood is named—obviously—for the state’s striking capitol building that sits atop it. Built between 1912 and 1916, the Neoclassical revival, Corinthian-style building is a beacon in the elevated streets between the Avenues and Downtown. And, though Capitol Hill is just minutes from all the shopping, eateries, and late-night life of Downtown SLC, it’s also sidled up to City Creek Canyon and Memory Grove, lending some unique outdoor opportunities to those nearby.

Capitol Hill Neighborhood & Local Businesses

These walkable streets are primarily residential, so you won't find many restaurants or shops nearby, but Arlo is a well-known and delicious exception on Center Street that offers a fantastic menu and quaint patio. That said, just down the hill (a 5-10 minute walk to the south), you'll find downtown Salt Lake City, where you can take advantage of countless bars and restaurants, theaters, pedestrian friendly seasonal events, and concerts. Marmalade, a quaint area nestled up to the west side of Capitol Hill, offers more shops and restaurants, and both areas are less than 10 minutes to I-15, where it’s a straight shot to so much of the Wasatch’s finest offerings, so residents here aren't short of options in any direction.

Capitol Hill Home Styles & Prices

Thanks to this area's proximity to City Creek Canyon and Memory Grove, residents here have easy, year-round access to some of SLC’s favorite trails and picnic spots. One of our city's more elevated neighborhoods, many Capitol Hill homes have access to stunning views of downtown Salt Lake and the Great Salt Lake to the west. Property types here run the gamut, from mansions to cottages and everything in between, but as the district itself is on the National Register of Historic Places, there are plenty of historic homes here too. One of our city's oldest and most distinguished neighborhoods, you can expect to find homes priced higher here than in other areas. Plenty of condo developments offer spaces from the mid $300s, but single family homes are more likely to be above $700k, with many larger or more modern properties north of $1M. Directly to the east, some Marmalade homes may be slightly more affordable, though this area is quickly catching up to its neighbor in demand.
