Also, The Grove will have membership in a “Master Association” due to its shared amenities (and outdoor plaza area) with the Marmalade Branch of the Salt Lake City public library and also the to-be-built mid-rise buildings north of the new library along the east side of 300 West. Specific details of this Master Association are being managed and will be implemented by Salt Lake City government.

What will the monthly HOA dues be at The Grove at Marmalade, and what items will be included in those dues?

The monthly HOA dues and budget for this community are still being finalized, but at this time we anticipate them to be no more than about $164 for each of the EAST floorplan homes and $200 for each of the WEST plan homes.  Listed below are currently planned items to be included in the HOA dues:

  • Exterior Building maintenance & Window Cleaning

When will The Grove at Marmalade be completed?

Anticipated completion of the first two homes is August 2018, with all homes planned for completion by January 2019.  The plan is to finish and occupy two homes, in a staggered sequence starting with #7 & #8 (in Aug 2018), followed by #1 & #2 a month later (Sept. 2018), then #9 & #10 (Oct. 2018), etc.  The only planned exception to this schedule and pattern is that we expect to deliver the remaining four homes (#5, #6, #11 & #12) in December 2018.  In all cases, when referring to any given month it is meant to be by the end of that month.  In cases where a Buyer selects a home scheduled for a later delivery, we may be able to fast-track its completion by a month or two depending on overall sales and other scheduling factors (weather, etc.).

Will some of the Residences be available to move into before the entire building of two homes is done?

Yes. We anticipate being able to obtain a “Certificate of Occupancy” on each residence individually.  This would allow us to Close and Buyers to occupy any individual residence before the neighboring home is completed.

Do homes at The Grove at Marmalade have security systems?

Yes. We plan on installing state-of-the-art security technology as a standard feature in all homes, with complimentary trial subscriptions for monitoring service for the first six months. Upgrades to these systems will also be available.

Will Google Fiber be pre-wired into all homes at The Grove at Marmalade?

Yes. Google has already installed their Google Fiber wiring infrastructure to The Grove property for later distribution into each home at The Grove that wants to use Google Fiber service.  This wiring has been done at no additional cost to the Buyer.  Google plans to connect The Grove at Marmalade to Google Fiber once they (Google) are ready to connect other areas in the neighborhood to their system.  We anticipate that there is a good chance Google Fiber will be active at The Grove at the time we are moving people in during late 2018.  Once activated, Google Fiber will make its services available to owners at The Grove on a fee-for-service basis.  The Grove has no control over when, if or under what terms Google Fiber will be offered at the community.

Will there be guest parking at The Grove?

No. There is abundant street parking in the Marmalade neighborhood area.

Will I be allowed to rent out my home at The Grove?

Yes, with restrictions of course.  In short, any owner may rent out their home to a tenant with a written lease of no less than six months as an initial term. Owners may not rent out less than the entire home to a tenant except under specific circumstances (see, “May I rent out a room or two to roommates” below).  Nightly and short-term rentals lasting less than six months are prohibited, as are subleases from one tenant to another.  The detailed answer to this question is contained in the CC&Rs for The Grove, which is a publicly-recorded document available online through the Salt Lake County Recorder's website.

May I rent out a room or two to roommates?

Yes, also with restrictions.  If an owner wishes to rent out a room or two to roommate(s) they may do so as long as they (the owner) also live there as their Primary residence, and so long as the other requirements of the CC&Rs are satisfied.  Renting out a room for less than six months is prohibited.  The detailed answer to this question is contained in the CC&Rs for The Grove, which is a publicly-recorded document available online through the Salt Lake County Recorder's website.

What are the approximate ceiling heights in the homes?

It varies quite a bit within each of the two floorplans and also from level to level and even room to room.  The reason for this is because the builder and architect want to always maximize ceiling heights while having to create ample space in the ceiling cavities for ducting, mechanical & HVAC, lighting, etc.  Below is information on estimated ceiling heights from the architect's drawings; note that in all cases it is approximate and subject to change without notice.

 Unit Numbers Level 1 Level 2 Level 3  
 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6  8 feet 8 inches 9 feet

10 feet (Master Bedroom only); remainder is 8 feet 

 
 7, 8, 9, 10  8 feet 2 inches 9 feet  9 feet   
11, 12 11 feet 9 feet 9 feet  

 

Will all of the power and communications lines along Arctic Court be burried underground during construction?

Yes.  On both the east and the west sides of Arctic Court all transmission lines are scheduled to be placed underground.  There will no longer be any poles installed on the street level along Arctic Court.

Will there be steps down to the private patio from the Living Room / Dining Room area in each home?

Yes.  We expect to have two steps down from each home's 2nd (mid) level Living / Dining room areas to the private patio, meaning there would be one step or small landing between the interior living area and the patio deck.  As required by building code, each patio’s poured concrete surface will generally be approximately 12 to 24 inches lower than the 2nd level’s interior flooring to allow for proper drainage from the patio without risk of water seeping into the interior living area.  This will also accommodate the extra height of any decking material and/or sub-structure that may be ordered by the owner which would sit on top of the concrete patio deck and add between three and six inches (generally) to the finished height of the patio.

What options will the homeowner have for the patio's walking surface?

All patios come with a standard poured concrete deck surface with a saw cut pattern, which are gently sloped to allow for proper drainage year-round off of the east and/or west ends of the patios.  Buyers will be offered a choice of keeping the concrete surface or upgrading to a high quality TREX Transcend style (Island Mist color) decking material which includes a mounting substructure that is installed above the concrete and then the TREX boards are attached to the substructure.  Buyers of the WEST floorplan homes have a second upgrade option available for decking material of a Belgard "stone finish" porcelain 24 inch by 24 inch paver.  Proper drainage for either upgrade decking material will be built in.

Will there be any options for a sun shade type of cover over part of the patio to create a shaded area to sit in during sunny days?

Yes.  For those who would like to have the option to create a shaded area on their patio we have specified a Vrienden side post umbrella upgrade, complete with power to a built-in light fixture to enhance night time use.  If this upgrade is ordered it will be installed with a "contractor base" which will be affixed to the concrete patio deck to a very clean and stable installation.  If either TREX or pavers are ordered they will be installed above base and leave only the sleeve exposed above decking material to slide umbrella post into for a nice custom look.

Will there be any fencing between one home's patio and the neighboring home's patio?

Yes.  A nice six foot high privacy fence, made of stained wood, is currently planned for installation between each private patio.  While the material or finish may change prior to installation, the builder will furnish and install a six foot high privacy fence between each two homes' patios.
