Taubman Centers chief operating officer Bill Taubman said those stores will help bring people to downtown Salt Lake City who might not come otherwise.
For several years, retired barber Don Brown has been photographing the rise of City Creek, shooting more than 1,000 photos of the 20-acre development for his private collection. One recurring thought during the economic downturn has been how fortunate Salt Lake City has been in its efforts to revive downtown.

Bring your canine friend (on a leash!)
City Creek Center has gone to the dogs.
The mall is one of several operated by Taubman Centers Inc. that allow dogs in the common areas.
“I think it’s a great idea,” said Sheri Rosenblatt of Park City, who was at City Creek Center Thursday with her two standard poodles.
A mall employee welcomed her and handed her a “Canine Code of Conduct” card, she said. The mall also furnishes guests a list of stores that welcome dogs.
Dogs at City Creek Center are required to be on leashes and aren’t allowed in the Food Court, in restaurants, on escalators or in the mall’s landscaping or water features, a mall spokeswoman said. Owners are responsible for cleaning up after their dogs. The mall even provides stations throughout the property with the tools for the job.
Taubman chief operating officer Bill Taubman said each of his company’s shopping centers that allow dogs periodically reviews policies to ensure that those who bring their dogs and those that don’t are both happy.
"This is going to give the city a big economic boost," he said. "It’s a good plan that perhaps other cities could follow to get us out of this economic crisis."
The massive City Creek project has been 10 years in the making, with construction taking nearly four years. The mall is part of the larger City Creek project, which includes offices, condos and apartments, and was built by the development arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
City Creek Center, which is owned and operated by Taubman Centers Inc., will have about 90 retailers and restaurants in 700,000 square feet of space, including anchor stores Macy’s and Nordstrom. The mall is bounded by West Temple, South Temple, State Street and 100 South.
