The Hub of Opportunity
About the Project

The Hub of Opportunity is a transit-oriented, 200,000 square-foot commercial/residential development that opened it’s doors on the Spring of 2020.

Located at 3900 S. W. Temple adjacent to the UTA Meadowbrook TRAX station in South Salt Lake, this innovative project is a community-based, mixed-use development that  brings together a unique combination of community services, workforce development opportunities, and community living for individuals with disabilities.

• The Hub provides much-needed accessible, affordable housing: 156 total units, with 110 units designated as affordable housing and 16 units designated as a part of the NextWork program.

• The building serves as a replicable and innovative model of integration, employment, transit, and housing for individuals with disabilities.

• The hallmark of the Hub is the NextWork Academy of Independent Living, a live/learn program for young adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
