Landscape-based Urban Design for Prominent Salt Lake City Center

Salt Lake City, Utah

Location Salt Lake City, Utah

Scope Landscape Architecture, Urban Design

Size 25 acres/10 hectares

SWA provided landscape architecture and urban design services for the nationally acclaimed City Creek Center redevelopment project in downtown Salt Lake City. The project is the largest mixed-use urban project to be built in the US in recent years. SWA’s design takes its inspiration from City Creek which once traversed the site. The iconic stream-like waterway provides a pedestrian-oriented green space throughout the property— the largest flowing watercourse built on-structure in the US. Other elements of the landscape design support the overall concept of urban living, with pocket parks, roof gardens, and landscape connections throughout the project. The project has received LEED Silver certification.
