Salt Lake Modern Homes Tour




Saturday, October 13, 2018

10 am to 5 pm

Westshire Neighborhood of West Valley City

Featuring the designs of architect Ron Molen and Research Homes. Not wanting the typical subdivision, Molen designed a neighborhood with a modern appearance that would be competitive on the housing market. What he created is a community who still love their homes and their neighborhood - and they want to share it with you! 

Most of the homes in Westshire were built in the 1960s, the neighborhood features a wide variety of designs, but a fluid aesthetic of Molen's modern style. 

On the day of the tour 3-4 private residences will be open to tour along with a map providing points of interest around the neighborhood.

This tour is a fundraiser for Preservation Utah - a local non-profit dedicated to historic preservation.

(The home pictured above is from our 2013 tour in Olympus Cove.)
