Neighborhood Highlight: Federal Heights

Updated: May 23, 2023

Quiet streets and striking views of Downtown and the Salt Lake valley are the order of the day in Federal Heights, and though this neighborhood is tucked quietly into the foothills, residents here also benefit from close proximity to all the good stuff.

Federal Heights Neighborhood

Perched just above/next to the University of Utah, the area is plugged nicely into the foothills, making for a location that is both city friendly and trail-adjacent, be it for hiking or biking. Though there isn't much in the way of commerce, a quick 5-minute drive to the south or west will land on any number of great shops or worthwhile restaurants. And, since Federal Heights is the Avenues' immediate neighbor to the east, residents can benefit from the many small businesses that dot the area (Cucina, Kura Door, and Wildwood among them).

Federal Heights Homes

With styles ranging from new-build modern to Mediterranean and turn-of-the-century (among others), the homes in Federal Heights are as architecturally diverse as they are ideally situated above the city. Properties and lots here are on the larger side and tend toward higher purchase prices, but the views and location are tough to beat, and there are plenty of good schools in the area.
