Hobbs+Black Project City Creek Center Receives Multiple National Awards

January 8 2014

ANN ARBOR, MI – City Creek Center, an urban retail shopping center in Salt Lake City, UT received the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) Gold Design and Gold Sustainable Design Awards during their conference held earlier this month in Scottsdale. The centerpiece of a 23-acre mixed-used complex, City Creek Center opened to the public in March, 2012. The redevelopment of this urban site transformed the downtown area, bringing in new office, housing, shopping and parking opportunities.

Over the course of the five year schedule, fifty different individuals from Hobbs + Black worked on this project, in collaboration with two owners and three general contractors. Complexities included integrating new structures with existing buildings and restoring and reinstalling two historically important facades. The urban site features a creek with 18-foot waterfalls and trout, three fountains, and immense retractable skylight roofs which afford visitors a sheltered and day-lit shopping experience year-round at over 100 stores covering 760,000 SF of retail space.

As a winner of the ICSC 2013 United States Design and Development Awards, the project will automatically be entered into ICSC’s Global Design and Development Awards competition, the "VIVA” (Vision, Innovation, Value, and Achievement) Best-of-the-Best Awards. ICSC’s VIVA Best-of-the-Best Awards honor and recognize the most outstanding examples of shopping center design and development, sustainability, marketing, and community service worldwide. The winners will be announced during RECon, the ICSC’s annual convention in Las Vegas, NV, held in May 2014.

Previously, City Creek Center was named the 2012 Best Mixed-Use Building by the Precast Concrete Institute. The American Council of Engineering Companies recognized the project with a 2013 Engineering Excellence Honor Award.

The ICSC is a society of real estate developers, architects, lawyers, and other industry professionals involved in the development and operation of shopping centers throughout the world.
