OGDEN RISING: Scenes of Rejuvination
Published On: January 22, 2016 Posted by: Jeremy Peterson
Ogden continues to be a city in metamorphosis. Here are a few photos that illustrate the ever increasing investment in Ogden’s Downtown neighborhoods:
This victorian home located on the 26th block of Madison Ave. was converted into an unseemly triplex many decades ago.
Fortunately, a new owner renovated the property and restored it back to single family use. Quite a remarkable difference!
I listed and sold this property last year to an investor who wanted to restore this 1880s Victorian building. The building was abandoned and configured into a dysfunctional triplex at the time.
The work is almost done and the difference is amazing.
Back in the 1950’s, Stimpson’s market was a popular convenience store and ice cream parlor in the neighborhood. It transformed into a Carneceria along the way and then went vacant for the past few years.
Demolition crews just completed their work making way for new development.
A companion laundromat also appears to have met the same fate.
New apartments are already under construction at the corner of 25th St. and Adams Ave.
Meanwhile, luxury apartments are being built at the corner of 23rd St. and Washington Blvd.
The new Dee School at 22nd St. and Madison Ave. is nearly complete and should be ready for occupancy this next school year.
There is a lot going on in Ogden. More good things are certainly on their way!
