    Thank you for sharing that. We were all dying to know your plans and what's lacking in order to keep you away. FYI, all the "secular" bookstores have gone out of business (Borders, Barnes & Noble, etc.)...I guess overpriced coffee and free WiFi didn't work out as a business model.

    Get a kindle like everyone else, or go to a "secular" library.

    No *secular* bookstores means I won't be there anytime soon.

    to CT98: use trax. Even without a lot of stores downtown it can be hard to get around by car. I find using the trax so much easier and friendly.

    Come to City Creek! Just make sure you give yourself time to arrive on time. Nobody thought to improve traffic flow into downtown. There are less lanes and more chaos compared to ZMCI Center/Crossroads days.

    Thank you for this article. We are coming up for the big event and wondered if it is best to use Trax or just drive downtown but we didn't know what the parking situation was at City Creek. Now we know. Can't wait to see the new development.

    Super excited about this! Downtown SLC needs to be revamped. It is much too beautiful a city to have remain semi-dormant. Hopefully City Creek will initiate a new shift on downtown entertainment, living, and night life. I applaud the local government for this Downtown Rising movement. The future of Utah is looking very bright. Also, we are very lucky to have the LDS church who has funded this whole project through a crippled economy. Hopefully this will cause a 'competition' between City Creek and Gateway. Gateway is no longer the only shopping you can do downtown; this is a good thing. With a new airport and direct access to downtown, or anywhere on the Wasatch Front, through TRAX/Frontrunner, I see a very efficient and well laid out city for the future.

    I'm sure to be there for the opening.
