Columbus Community Center’s “Hub of Opportunity” is an innovative, transit-oriented, 200,000 square-foot commercial/residential development that will bring together a unique combination of community services, employment opportunities, and community living for individuals with disabilities.
The project is located at 3900 S. West Temple, adjacent to the UTA Meadowbrook TRAX station in South Salt Lake. This innovative project is a community-based, mixed-use development that provides opportunities for individuals with severe disabilities to be good neighbors, tenants, consumers, and taxpayers.
The Hub is an economically sustainable enterprise that leverages all the best from our community—economic growth, public transportation, quality of life, vibrant neighborhoods, community support, and family involvement. It provides a centralized location in Salt Lake County for individuals with moderate to severe disabilities who are often the most isolated in our communities, and it can be replicated in other counties along the Wasatch Front.
Because this will be one of the first of its kind in the country, other communities will be looking at the project as an innovative, replicable model of community living.
The entire project includes 157 residential units, and it will be built from the ground up with accessibility and integration in mind. The project will be designed to enhance access and “visitability,” where residents, families, and visitors have barrier-free access to the community and each other.
Of the 157 units, 110 units will be designated as affordable housing and the remainder will be market-rate apartments. Individuals with disabilities will be fully integrated into the community living side-by-side with neighbors that reflect the demographics of our community, ranging from those with severe disabilities to families to young professionals.
Columbus will provide seamless program supports and services to ensure individuals with disabilities can leverage paychecks, subsidies, and entitlements in a way to ensure safe, integrated living in the community. This includes basic supports that many of us take for granted like accessible transportation, life-skill training, and vocational training.
This project could be replicated on any TRAX or major bus line along the Wasatch Front, and portions could be replicated in other Utah communities outside of the Wasatch Front.
