City Creek Center shopping salt lake city

City Creek Center was created from one of the largest urban development projects in the West Rocky Mountain area, called “Downtown Rising.”  Essentially, Salt Lake City tore down and rebuilt 20 acres of the downtown area to create City Creek Center which now includes 500,000 square feet of retail space filled with over 100+ different retailers.

City Creek Center is within 5 miles of every one of our Salt Lake City apartment communities and less than 2 miles from our Nexus on 9thSeven65 Lofts, and Axis at 739 communities.

This is one mall you need to visit for shopping in Salt Lake City.

2. The Gateway
400 W 200 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84101

The Gateway is a beautiful outdoor mall with stunning daytime and nighttime views, a real bonus for shopping areas, with 44 shops spread throughout its street and upper level.

The Gateway doubles as a great place to walk around with friends or family due to its pleasing setting and lighting with great landscaping and attractive architecture.

The Gateway is less than 10 miles from all our Salt Lake City apartment communities and as close as 2 miles for our C9 Flats and Axis at 739 communities.

If you are looking for a beautiful place to shop around and catch up with someone, then make sure to add The Gateway to your list for shopping in Salt Lake City.

3. Trolley Square
602 E 500 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84102

Trolley Square was built in 1972 as a trendy shopping center with brick and wooden floors and winding hallways.

It houses over 45+ retail spaces in a unique shopping center which was once used to hold street cars from the days of the street car system in Salt Lake City.  Large barns for storing these cars have been converted into retail space, but have kept much of the unique infrastructure, to create a shopping mall with lots of convenient places to shop while being able to take in and appreciate some creative and ingenious architecture.  They also have a wonderful theme during the winter holiday season which makes Trolley Square a hit destination for sightseeing, too!

This shopping area is one of the closest to our apartment communities being less than 3 miles from all our Salt Lake City properties and within walking distance of Seven65 Lofts.

This is a fun shopping center to check out for all your shopping in Salt Lake City!

4. Sugar House
