A downtown Salt Lake building constructed in 1927 and advertised then as “new urban apartments” was renovated and converted to condominiums 90 years after its initial construction. The Armista Apartments, 555 E. 100 S., was one of more than 180 “urban apartment buildings” erected in Salt Lake City during a time of rapid urbanization just after the turn of the last century. The original ad copy for the announcement of the new building back in 1927 read: “Splendid 3-room apartments, equipped with electric ranges and electric refrigeration — $40 to $42 per month.” Along with the exterior, the interior of each unit was restored. Units feature original hardwood floors, exposed brick, new kitchen and bath, off-street parking, in-unit laundry, and extra storage. The full bathrooms were restored to look like the originals, with honeycomb floor tiles, pedestal sinks, and full tubs. The Armista is listed on the Nation Register of Historic Places. It is located at 555 E 100 S between the University of Utah and Downtown Salt Lake City.
