Living Zenith at Liberty Park

Located at 1172 S 400 E Salt Lake City, UT the first Living Zenith community represents the culmination of years of research, innovation and development excellence. The first truly Net Zero community in Utah, each of the six units in this community presents unique energy efficiency and build materials that puts these homes in an entirely new category when it comes to quality of living.

With a modern Euro-aesthetic and a choice of elegant but enduring and tasteful design throughout each home presents beauty and comfort that are worthy of the accompanying energy efficiency and sustainable materials selections.

The first home was completed in January of 2017 with the full community scheduled for completion in the summer of 2017.

Arlington Park Community by Redfish Builders

Arlington Community

Redfish addressed the question of the “missing middle” with these high-end townhomes near the UofU. Six snug brick homes on a private hillside that filled a niche for strategic infill through thoughtful use of space. While other builders and realtors scoffed at this approach, Redfish broke new ground and these haute homes sold before they were even built. Since then, similar townhomes have cropped across SLC.
