Hazlett, C., “A Green Light for Sustainability: Developer’s Aren’t Waiting for Government-Enforced Sustainable Building Codes. They’re Going Green Now,” Shopping Centers Today (August 2012) highlights a project in which the developer voluntarily elected to “go green” with Salt Lake City’s new City Creek Center.

According to the article, the shopping center, “which is the retail portion of a $1.5 billion mixed-use project called City Creek,” includes a fully retractable glass roof that “lets in natural heating and cooling” and other “environmentally friendly design features.” A sidebar, entitled, “The World Is Getting Greener, One Center at a Time,” describes the “greening” of shopping centers worldwide including “emerging regions like Southeast Asia and Africa.”
