FWIW, Cafe Molise is very good. I do like that there are so many non-chains that have popped up on the borders of CCC over the last decade or so...some great dining options downtown now that didn't exist when I worked down there.

We *do* need some more restaurants within CCC though.

Fine and costly apparel
The Salt Lake Tribune

Quote:
I love City Creek Center, Utah’s fashion HQ. I like that Nordstrom and Macy’s carry high-end brands unavailable elsewhere.

Yet, due to Pat Bagley’s March 22 cartoon contrasting the LDS Church’s mall and Temple Square, as I walked through on opening day I pondered the Book of Mormon’s warnings about exquisite clothes. The scriptures’ ideal is a classless, equalitarian society, and it damns things that divide us:

• The evil antichrist Nehor "began to be lifted up in the pride of his heart, and to wear very costly apparel, yea, and even began to establish a church after the manner of his preaching" (Alma 1:6).

• "The people began to be distinguished by ranks, according to their riches and their chances for learning" (3 Nephi 6:12).

• Moroni warned our day: "For behold, ye do love money … and your fine apparel … more than ye love the poor and the needy, the sick and the afflicted" (Mormon 8:36–37).

• "And thus there became a great inequality ... insomuch that the church began to be broken up" (3 Nephi 6:14).

Heathen that I am, I worship at City Creek Center, which undermines the mission of its owner.

What is going on today... I was going to walk over to CCC for lunch... But the parking lot block is full so I'm worried it's packed... It doesn't look like anything is going on at the delta center... Maybe it the salt palace or the church :/ either way I bet CCC is packed

Ok lets try not to get another CCC thread closed. It's bad enough we lost haft of the CCC development history ( over 5000 posts ) of the old thread.

Well, since the original CCC thread was closed for just this sort of dialog, I guess now that CCC is open, we'll end up closing this thread with the same.

Ah well.

More Main Street business!


(my photo)

Story...

"City Creek, unlike the malls it replaces, will have stores whose shopfronts face Main Street, says Jeff Barnard, owner of clothing boutiques JMR and Lolabella. He’s a veteran of the mall scene, having had stores in the Cottonwood Mall, which was torn down, and Trolley, which he left for Crossroads, only to then move to Gateway. Now he has two stores in Gateway, where rents average $40 per square foot. “Sometimes I think City Creek will crush Gateway, sometimes not,” he says. Either way, the key for a retailer, is to be “real careful you sign a lease with mobility so you don’t get trapped in a shopping center in decline.”

Barnard was in negotiations with City Creek for years. Taubman offered a leasing deal of $82 per square foot, which would incrementally rise to $125 over 10 years. Barnard didn’t necessarily balk at how expensive it was. “The way I look at it, you’re paying for more volume.” Nevertheless, he couldn’t afford it, and came up with an ingenious way of being part of City Creek and the seeming Main Street revolution without paying the exorbitant rent.

On Aug. 1, he will open a 5,500-square-foot store in the Crandall building, on the corner of Main and 100 South, called Chalk Garden Co-op, the title a nod to 1959, when his parents opened the Chalk Garden clothing store."

Nice... On a related note... I wonder what they are going to do with the foundation on that side of the building... There use to be steps and an entrance there... So it's not restorable like the south side... Unless they restore the entrance.

How sweet it is for downtown right now. It's a bit premature to say this, but it really looks as if a new era has been ushered in. Can't wait for the Starbucks to open either—I would totally rather have something local like Beans and Brews or Coffee Garden, but I realize the value a coffeeshop has in the city center.

It's too bad that Mathew Landis was ripped off and the company running Landis Aveda stole his name.

He originally started Landis Aveda with some backers, but they cheated him out of the company and even his own name.

I think they're still in discussions with Starbuck and nothing has been finalized yet (at least this is what someone had posted earlier). If signed on, does anyone know where it will go? Will the Starbucks take over the Subway retail space on the South side of the Crandall Building?
