Commercial Club Building
1908-1910, Ware & Treganza
Mining magnate Samuel Newhouse donated this site to the Commercial Club as part of his plan to strengthen the non-Mormon south downtown. The Commercial Club was organized by Salt Lake City businessmen in 1902 to attract new businesses to city. This building was constructed as a luxurious gathering place for the club’s members. It once contained a swimming pool, banquet rooms, and game rooms. The loggia on the sixth floor and balconies on the third floor are typical of the Second Renaissance Revival style. Its polychromatic terra-cotta, inlaid mosaic tiles, and copper cornice make the Commercial Club one of the most colorful buildings in the city.
Located at 32 Exchange Place in Salt Lake.
This is part of the Exchange Place Historic District.
