Little City

Little City, Inc., is a Utah Benefit Corporation formed in 2015 by longtime friends and Salt Lake City advocates Tim Sullivan and Michael Yount. Little City creates small, temporary urban real estate developments oriented to walking, transit, bicycling, and public space, with the goal of incubating larger, permanent, great urban places.

As Salt Lake City grows, budding entrepreneurs, makers, and small businesses struggle to find small, affordable space. We fill that niche, while simultaneously creating community gathering places for events, food trucks, beer gardens, and more.

Our Founders

Tim and Michael were friends and colleagues long before founding Little City. They met at The Salt Lake Tribune and immediately connected with a shared passion for storytelling, both written and visual, and their love of the Utah Jazz. Years later, both removed from journalism and serendipitously Avenues neighbors, the duo began plotting Little City during late night sessions wandering the streets of Salt Lake City, or over drinks in one of their backyards.

Tim Sullivan began his professional career as a journalist after graduating from Middlebury College in Vermont. He initially worked in Utah before relocating to Portland, Oregon. His coverage of cities and government for the Oregonian sparked a passion for city and land-use planning. He earned a master's degree urban planning from Cal-Berkeley and worked several years in Oakland, before returning home to Salt Lake City with his family. He now runs his own planning firm, Township + Range

After a decade in journalism, Michael Yount set out as an independent designer in 2007, founding his own firm, Y Design. He later served as the marketing director for Salt Lake City’s Jewish Community Center, before taking his current position in 2014 as creative director for the local design firm Third Sun. Michael spends as much time as life allows on one of his bicycles, watching his kids play sports, and figuring out ways to take more trips abroad. Although a lover of modern architecture, he and his wife live in 100-year-old Avenues home.
