Construction on the $1 billion City Creek Center project in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City is progressing on schedule slated for completion in Spring 2012. The project is the only new retail development project in the Salt Lake City area that isn’t plagued by budget shortfalls or construction stoppages due to the current economic climate. This is in large part due to the stability of the financier, Zion Securities–which is the for-profit arm to the LDS Church.
