Neighborhood Highlight: Central City

Updated: Sep 29, 2023

This diverse neighborhood in SLC sits at the center of a handful of other equally amiable areas: Capitol Hill and The Avenues to the north, University and Harvard & Yale to the east, Sugar House and Liberty Wells to the south, and Downtown and Ballpark to the west. Along with multi- and single-family homes, condos, and apartments, this area is also in close proximity to so many of Salt Lake City’s best restaurants, parks, and shopping spots.

Central City Neighborhood

An eclectic mix of quiet residential streets and bustling local businesses, there are plenty of walkable pockets here. The Salt Lake Public Library and the Leonardo Museum are both great ways to spend an afternoon expanding your horizons, and Trolley Square is bursting with great local shops. Restaurant-wise, there's a sizable number to choose from—HSL and Yoko Ramen are both perpetual pleasers, and Banbury Cross is not to be missed. For shopping, head to Trolley Square or to the 300 Block of Broadway for some good vintage finds. If you’re looking to head to the University or Downtown, both neighborhoods are a quick drive away from just about anywhere here, but TRAX is your best bet, as it runs along 400 South.

Central City Homes

Central City is sandwiched between downtown SLC and the University, so it's a bustling neighborhood, to say the least. Overall, it's a diverse mixed-use/residential area, and you can expect to find condos/apartments alongside single family homes and office spaces, thought it has less of a quaint neighborhood vibe and more of a decidedly professional one. Over the last several years, a healthy handful of large-scale condominium and apartment developments have popped up along 400 South. Those looking to purchase in Central City will find a range of prices, with condos starting in the mid-200s and single family homes starting somewhere around $500k.
