(Salt Lake City-AP) -- No Nordstrom, but maybe Target? It could happen.
The Salt Lake City Planning Commission voted five-to-four to approve a re-zoning plan allowing large retailers at The Gateway.
But upscale fashion retailers like Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue would have to stick to the Main Street area.
The plan still has to go before the Salt Lake City Council.
Last month, the City Council voted against high-fashion retail department stores at The Gateway, but indicated it might allow more value-oriented stores there.
Nordstrom wanted to move to The Gateway and has said it will close its store in the Crossroads Plaza on Main Street when its lease expires in 2005 if it doesn't.
The Gateway's developers were relieved by last night's vote.
