See photos from inside Salt Lake City’s newest office tower

The 10-story, 320,000-square-foot 650 Main building opens amid a spurt in high-rise, high-end construction.

After nearly two years of construction conducted under pandemic conditions, developers with the Houston-based Patrinely Group have opened a new high-end office tower in Salt Lake City.

Called 650 Main, the 10-story building near the intersection of 600 South and Main Street adds about 320,000 square feet of well-appointed office space — including a large lobby, about 4,600 square feet for retail outlets, large floor plans, 10-foot-high ceilings and ample views of the Salt Lake Valley — to a rapidly growing downtown business district.

The glass-clad structure was designed by HOK, a worldwide firm headquartered in St. Louis. And in a special deal involving Salt Lake City and its Redevelopment Agency, the Utah Transit Authority is building a new TRAX station nearby.

Officials with Patrinely Group — and its San Antonio-based partner in the project, USAA Real Estate — have said they envision another office building similar in size on adjacent land at 645 W. Temple, though the construction timeline is unclear.
