What I like about the Bench Tower Condos
The views. And I don't just like them, I love them. The Bench Tower Condos offer some of the best views you can find anywhere in Salt Lake City. The skyroom is one of the most amazing amenities I've seen in any condo community, and I've see a lot of these. I also like that they have an onsite property manager. This makes the community safer and more convenient. You will also notice that the building is very well built. It just feels very quiet and solid. The location is also very good, especially for outdoor enthusiast because there are hiking and biking trails so close that you can take off on an adventure right from your condo.

What I don't like about the Bench Tower condos
If you are not going to use the amenities that Bench Tower offers, you would be better off buying in another community in SLC. The HOA fee is high unless you will be utilizing the amenities that you are paying for. The location is good if you like the hike and bike, but if you are commuting to downtown, there are other communities that are closer for the same price. These condos are relatively small. You can get more square footage for your money elsewhere. Skyroom at the Bench Tower Condos in Salt Lake City

Who will like these condos?
If you are looking for a luxury condo near downtown Salt Lake City but not right in the city and you want a resort-like community with lots of amenities, this community could be a good fit and you should pick up your phone and call me right now. If you want a large condo for a low price or you do not use the amenities that the Bench Tower offers, you will be better suited looking elsewhere. I'd suggest taking a look at our list of condos in Downtown Salt Lake City.
