SALT LAKE CITY -- From the roof of the Key Bank Tower construction workers look like ants, but you can see exactly how the City Creek Center will look.
From the huge rectangles that will be Nordstrom and Macy's to the hundreds of apartments and condos, even the spots for the water features and open space can be seen.
"The shape of things to come is clearly visible now," said spokesman Dale Bills, as he points out the spots where 80-plus shops will be.
"For City Creek overall, we're at a point now where it's topped out," he said. "We're not going any higher and we are largely formed in."
The glass pedestrian bridge over Main street and the retractable roofs over the retail areas are impressive.
"The next 18 months, as we get ready for retail grand opening, are finishing out interiors," Bills said. "We do have a few things left to close in and finish with exteriors, but as I said the shape of things to come is clearly visible now."
To the southeast all the dirt being moved around at site of the future Harmons grocery store is clearly visible. It should be finished by late 2011, with more living space open in the middle of 2011. Bills says the whole development is set to open March 2012.
