South Salt Lake, Utah: The Hub Provides Opportunity for Persons of Mixed Abilities

HUD User publishes a series of case studies based on federal, state, and local strategies that increase affordable housing opportunities and support sustainable community development. The projects and community development efforts featured in these reports have demonstrated innovation through a multitude of partnerships and initiatives.

The Hub of Opportunity is a transit-oriented development providing accessible and affordable housing in the city of South Salt Lake, Utah. More than housing, the Hub consists of commercial and employment training spaces that support residents and community members, especially residents experiencing a range of physical and mental disabilities. Designed to be an inclusive space that integrates individuals and families regardless of age, gender, or disability status, the development features a mix of low-income and market-rate units. The project’s signature component is the NextWork Academy, a live-work space that supports young adult residents on the autism spectrum in learning to live independently.
