I hope the Sugar hole starts soon, are market station, more work on Fairbourne station or UPAC. Not having much to track on CCC anymore will leave a huge hole on the forum.

Hopefully we will stay busy tracking new businesses on and surrounding Main, as a result of CCC.

Honestly though, there will never be another single project that even comes close to the magnitude of CCC, in my lifetime.

Kind of, but lets be honest. Main Street has been somewhat of a ghost town for the last ten years and our downtown has been kind of lame. Hell even Boise had a better downtown feel then us. Its nice that we finally have a world class urban center right in the heart of downtown.

So I haven't posted in years, but I feel today of all days should be the day to post! I am super excited about CCC! I have been silently following its progress on this forum when I was living in Oregon and now living back in SLC I am proud to say I live in such a vibrant city! Ill be visiting tonight after work and just cant wait to see it in full fruition. Viva la SLC!!!

This is mainly to stop teenagers who dress weird from spending their entire day sitting in CCC scaring away shoppers, like the punks who used to congregate outside Nordstrom on Main near the bus stop.

I agree... were there any "surprise" stores? What impressed you the most? What wasn't quite how you expected? Come on... not all of us can see it in person today.

Let's see some photos of the "fire and water" fountain in action. I'd even like to see the storefronts that don't have anything in it yet. How did they put those together... 'blank white wall' like the typical mall?

Go to flickr.com and search for city creek center.

This is your forum eye-in-the-sky with a post-lunch update:

Tree people have been sited! I repeat: Tree people have been sited along with their Flower People counterparts! I just got back from a quick lunch stroll through: it is amazing and it is PACKED!

They've got musicians spaced throughout the Center. There were only two noticeably visible empty storefronts that i saw. Then again there is plenty to observe and distract. i concur that the view from inside the sky bridge is fantastic... or it would be if they didn't have a very talented cellist stationd right at the apex drawing a huge crowd.

If these crowds are an indication of how Christmas will be...

As for all you photogs out there, I wouldn't be too worried. As long as you're not carting around a tripod and blocking progress, you should be fine. I saw dozens of photographers of all stripes taking shots and lots of iPhone movies being made (especially around the fountain court at Nordstoms). Yes there were lots of security, but they were being more helpful than anything else I saw.

I only saw one flaw: The street-level crossing at the Main Street Station. I predict that before the weekend's out, there will be some sort of pedestrian accident with either Trax or a vehicle hit. Folks (pedestrians) were just breezing through without any regard to oncoming traffic or Trax... only a matter of time...

This is your eye-in-the-sky, signing off...

I noticed Anthropologie in some of the photos taken at City Creek - it says it is opening in the fall of 2012. They have a store at the Gateway currently, correct?

There is a paper note on the Crandall building that says "Chalkgarden" which, of course, stands for JMR-Chalkgarden. Looks like they're all signed up, but haven't done a ton on it yet.

Just got back.
Wow.
This place is very impressive, and very crowded today. The musicians and tree-people are kinda cool. I hope that a musician or two are a permanent fixture around that place. The fountains and creek are beautiful and everything is just as grand and impressive as we've all expected from photos.
My knee-jerk reaction thought was "I was wrong. The Gateway is dead."
But then I thought about it, and realized that I myself will still be spending more of my time and money at the Gateway. CCC is fantastic, and it's presence downtown is going to be incredible, but aside from visits to some of the eateries, and Harmons, I don't see myself spending a whole lot of time there (unless I can get one of those condos!... Holding out for the Cascade...) The truth is that it's just a shopping center. I'm not trying to take anything away from it-- it's great-- but unless I'm looking to spend 80 bucks on a shirt, I won't have much reason to go there, except maybe to take in the atmosphere.
On the other hand, I'll be going to the Gateway for movies or the Planetarium or before Jazz games just as frequently as I did before. I'm sure when I go to the premiere of the Hunger Games tonight, the crowds will have all shifted over the Gateway.
I do think the Gateway would be very wise to update their look a little a bit. It would be great if these two shopping centers could co-exist as almost a single destination, along with Main Street to create a reputation for downtown again being a shopping and lifestyle destination.
The skybridge was certainly successful at keeping people in the shopping center. Not too many strayed down main. Of course, CCC is the attraction of the day, so I assume it's just that. I'm sure all of downtown, and Main St. especially will benefit from CCC. Speaking of which, the awesome new barber shop on main was offering free straight-razor shaves. It was fantastic. That place is great. Check it out.
Lots of people taking pictures. And yet no one escorted off the premises or arrested. Odd.
All in all, so surreal after all this time to be there, standing in the renderings we've been following for years. Standing in T-Mac's photos. It's sure a stunning place. I look forward to seeing how it will now impact the city.

Congratulations to SLC and it's residents. It's been fun following the project's progress and learning from the members of this forum. My wife said that we need to go to SLC now just to check CCC out.

I'm going to wait til the first week of April when I have some time off work to check out CCC. And believe me, I will be taking lots of photos and videos. Maybe I'll get to be the first person to ever get kicked out of CCC.

He was simply giving an example of why they have the no loitering rule on CCC Property. So that those punks that used to hang out on Main all day, won't be able to hang out all day inside ccc premises.
