From Heated Pavers to Hotel Deals, Amenities Rich at City Creek

Published: 03/19/2012
'Concierge-style' » Center includes airline flight monitor and fountain shows set to music.

Word is out on the showy stuff: the retractable skylight roof, the 18-foot waterfalls and the glitzy shops, a third of which are new to Salt Lake City.

But City Creek Center's amenities run deeper than the 1,200-foot-long re-created creek.

Start with the underground heaters. Shoppers can navigate the wintertime slop without getting ice or salt on their shoes, thanks to a snowmelt system along the outdoor walkways. It is so strong, promoters say, that snow and ice will melt the second it touches the pavers.

Inside, expect a "concierge-style" customer-service booth, complete with an airline flight monitor. Three fountains, made by the Bellagio designers, will feature fire and water shows - and animations for children - choreographed to music.
