Utah Power – Southeast Substation
In 2004 Utah Power expanded the Southeast substation and the three houses shown below were removed. These homes were constructed by Kimball & Richards Building Company as part of the Highland Park Subdivision at a time when the population of Salt Lake City was approximately 93,000.
By 2004, the Salt Lake City population had increased to nearly 179,000, increasing the demand for electricity and necessitating the expansion of the Southeast substation. Prior to their removal, members of the Sugarhouse community were invited to salvage items from the bungalows such as bricks, doors, windows, moldings, flooring, light fixtures, etc.
