Salt Lake City — Taubman is preparing for the opening of the only regional shopping center in the United States this year, its 700,000-square-foot City Creek Center.
Salt Lake City — Taubman is opening the only regional center in the United States during 2012 on March 22. The 700,000-square-foot City Creek Center is anchored by Nordstrom and Macy’s, and features a host of innovative features. A 1,200-foot long “creek” flows through the center, with two 18-foot waterfalls en route. The center also features a retractable roof, the first in the nation in a shopping center. A 140-foot skybridge over Main Street allows shoppers to connect to shops, creating a seamless flow between two city blocks. City Creek Center’s outdoor walkways are heated to protect shoppers during wintertime. The Macy’s building at the center features the restored facade of the historic ZCMI department store, which occupied the site for many years. The center is located across the street from Temple Square of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), Utah’s most popular tourist destination.
