Over 1000000 according to mine at

cm the north bench during the last 12
months In that time It U ert mated
that between WO and 400 new building
have Men acted In that part of th
Us and theM bulMlivg range in
price from J3WO up to as high as tiny =
In 17 a few yean after the boom
price of property In that quarter ot
the city dropped alnvwt out at night
there wut no demand and the property
lay an If dead and the reaction bas
been disappointingly low up to with in
threw or four yuan ago when th ro
came a change and the prict have
gone upward In Ian and bourns
During the last year they havr 1
all > Cfld probably not more than I j r
cent and yet the price of kola up I hdC
are considered sldl low M compared
with thoM of residence property an
other part of the city The elevated
site out or the smoke and awn from
the noten of the city and yet nj < > vu g
all city comfort and convenience su > h
as city water electric light street ar
service and store delivery make of the
north bench a particularly desirable
art of the city In which to pn < l half
ones time every U hour of the day
Jots can till bn had up there for tm
low tui WOO theM being the lees de
sirable far up on the hill with north
frontage But loin on thn north bench
do not mean 26 feet but 40 to 4U4 feet
frontage With south frontage prob
ably none can be Ind even as far north
OR Thirteenth for IBM than 600 to < 600 I
West and cast fronts are sought after I
almost an eagerly as south front
The south view up there twpeclnJIy at
night Is unique with Its double firma

Another feature which will old ma

another boost this spring
One mom reuron why iota command
higher prices up there In on account of
the limited awes which is not more
than half a mile In width by a mile In
length This limited s of a neces
sity follows the old law of mipply and
demand a abort supply Invariably
causing a rise In prim The Intrinsic
value of tho lots may be not a whit
better than in other quarters but tOO
fact that the limited supply doubles or
trebles the number of buyers ever has
an upward tendency and yet present
prices are fI < LId by oon rvatrvcs to bo
cheap compared with what they will be
by full Today there are not less than
40 new houses In tourse of construction

many more are In contemplation Dur

Improvement work at Highland Park
during the past week has been connned
to three main varlets of operation
the grading of streets the planting of
trees and tho buildIng of houses
The work of britiKttis the streets to
city grade la of Itself no small Item
for there are something like 10 mUM
of streets In Highland Park What
might be classed as the rough work In
tho grading Is now nearing completion
The aim of the contractor has been to
get the greater amount of the earth
removed to wh rn he wonted It before
attempting to bring any of the street
to that uniformity and neatness of ap
pseranco which they will aswim when
they have been made to conform In all
respects to the demand of tho city en
Ono reason for this of course nan
been that If any streets wore finished
la fora the rough work had been com
pleted it would not bo Itrft In suuh
good shape as It will be on account of
the heavy teams passing and reese
Ins over it while tho remainder of the
Improvement work III going on Fifty
teems with all mirts of heavy equip
ment are at work on the streets con
ntantly and that of itself means a very
considerable amount of trying traffic
The work of planting trees Is nearing
completion for the season The season
Itself precludes further activity In this
regard and the dwMre has been to com
plots the Improvement work on all the
streets before too many trees have bern
planted to Interfere with the graders
und the men laying the cement A <
ready about ZOo of the total of TOM
tree have been planted lining the
streetn of the tract as far east as Dear
born the D street of the tract Fr
the streets of Highland Park have
names whose Initial letters ant In al
phabetlcal order
Excavations have been completed by
tho Kimball IU < harts Building company

to be built this summer on which work
will noon be under nay
Kimball A Richards report that tho
sales of property have been going ahead
at a rapid rate all week and they insert
that the advantagM of the location and
the Improvements Installed on it have
appeab to every visitor who has seen
the tract
Uptodate the real estate demand
In Bait Lake this season has been
practically centered on lots In the
suburban subdivisions with only here
and there a sale of Importance In the
business district Of course one sale
of business property would counting
dollar for dollar equal a whole week
full of suburban lot purchase and in
the aggregate the sales of business
frontage will far exceed the sale of
lots In Salt Lake this spring but so
many people are Interested In and
making these small Investments In
city lots that It gives to the casual
observer the trend of Interest in that
direction Now Im looking for an
unexpected turn of things said a
real estate man this week People of
moderate means are making most of
them purchases but many who have
money at their command have been
buying up and platting tracts them
selves and the latter are the ones I
look to to turn about and put their
money In business property which the
record will prove Is a surer and
quicker source of proflt than residence
property And If a man Is able to 1m
prove his buxlnesj property It U
vastly more profitable than rents from
Over 100000 will be expended In the
new hotelgarage building being erected
on the northwest corner of Second
South and Second FAst streets by J C
Lynch The building Is OxSS feet the
entire lower floor to be occupied by the
Studebaker automobile people under tho
management of Mr Qulgle the upper
two stories to be for hotel purposes
The front la of Utah stone brought
from tho Castle Gain quarries the
main part of the building U of buff
irlok Marren taker are contractors
for the stone and masonry work The
expectation Ig to have the building
completed early In May The loner
part will be so constructed on to pre
vent as far a II possible the noise from
the auto reaching the hotel above
The president of the National Asso
ciation of Real Kstate Exchanges In a
recent oddrese d llver d bofora the
American Civic association of Detroit
made some surprising statements that
may be of Interest to tho Salt Lake In
vestor He emphasized tho value of
building restrictions saying among oth
er things the following
Time was when the real estate man
believed that to bo successful In the
handling of a new section of a oily It
waa necessary that tho purchasurs of
the property bo given unrestricted prlv
legea to dispose of their holdings as
they saw fit True the subdivision
with building restrictions was occa
sionally heard of but in most instances
restricted subdivisions wero usually In
high class sections where only the
man of means was ablo to select n
home site and bemuse of his means
was able to thus protect himself against
hn future
What la the situation today It has
como to pans that the subdivision that
caters even to the modest workingman U
or the man of small and limited meats
must provide restrictions as to the na
ture of construction that will be per
mitted In that section and restriction
that will preserve the Ulnrlct along
Units of homelike beauty
The real estate man who does not
assure the workman and the mechanic
that for Instance no machine shop or
cheap business place going to drop in
alongside of him some dayho does
not assure his client that hH neighbors
homes will not bo of no Interior a grade
that they will provo an eyesore that
them house next door will not be built
out near the sidewalk line nnd thus ob
struct his viewthat real estate man Is
going to experience no little difficulty
In disposing of his subdivision

Utah resources continue to come In tu
the Real T > tats association Clumber
of Commerce and other organizations
and to business firms and many Indi

Increasing every year which shows
that the people are looking to Utah
with a favorable eye and a desire and
Intention to make this state their home
If they can bo satisfied with the lands
or the openings for business houses or
manufactories Those letters come
from all parts of the United States
but more particularly from the Mis
souri and the Mississippi valleys where
there reems to be a state of unrest
which grows stronger as the years ad
vance The large Irrigation openings
In various parts of the state and many i
more tracts on the eve of being opened
INch of hlch ban distributed ten of
thousands of booklets and newspa
per notices favorable to Utah togeth
er with the Influences at work prompt
Ing the Innumerable Inquiries nil will
have a tendency to ultimately bring a
great many new settlers and invest
