City Creek Center in downtown Salt Lake City is a new 700,000-square-foot shopping and dining destination and one of the largest mixed-use downtown redevelopment projects in the nation. The center is located between South Temple and 100 South, and between West Temple and State Street, with Main Street running down the center. City Creek Center is just south of Temple Square.

City Creek Center features Nordstrom, Macy’s and more than 90 stores and restaurants, one third of which are new to the Salt Lake market. Some of the center's notable architectural features are a fully retractable skylight roof, a skybridge over Main Street connecting the east and west sides of the center, two waterfalls, a 1200-foot creek, three electronically controlled fountains, and a 5000-space underground parking structure.

City Creek Center is the only regional shopping center scheduled to open in the U.S. in 2012, and the first large enclosed shopping center to open in the United States since 2006.

The retail center is owned and operated by Michigan-based Taubman, and the office and residential portions of the project are owned and operated by City Creek Reserve, Inc., a development arm of the LDS Church. Shops and restaurants will be closed on Sundays, with the exception of the Cheesecake Factory and Texas de Brazil restaurants.
