Riverfront is situated in South Salt Lake alongside the Jordan River. The community features beautiful single-family homes in the rambler and two story design style, and is highlighted by spectacular views of the Wasatch mountains range.
The area is ideally located between I-15 and I-215, making an easy commute to a majority of the valley; easy access to downtown, the airport, and both the University of Utah and Salt Lake Community College.
South Salt Lake is comprised of a total of 6.9 square miles bordering West Valley City, Millcreek, and Salt Lake City. The area was first incorporated in 1938 out of a need for utility lines and additional public services including a local post office and fire station. Salt Lake City offered to annex the area but would not have been able to provide needed services for a few more years. Not more than two days later, citizens took matters into their own hands and created a separate town, immediately filing plans for public works.
This same spirit of ingenuity and independence drives the community today. Over the last few years, several startup craft breweries have set up shop in South Salt Lake. Redevelopment efforts of the downtown area have made the area more walkable and accessible via FrontRunner public transportation. With the population growth, the area has become more diverse, encouraging more ethnic restaurants and shops to open. A great example of this diversity is seen in Salt Lake Chinatown, a 5.7-acre shopping center development.
