About

Downtown Rising is a nexus between public and private interests in advancing community goals for Utah's urban center. Downtown stakeholders commit to unfinished projects from the original Downtown Rising vision as we identify new priorities for Utah's Capital City and celebrate 10 years of development in downtown Salt Lake City. Throughout the last decade Salt Lake City has seen a significant increase in development, from City Creek Center to 111 Main, these and other developments have played a crucial role in improving the vibrancy of downtown. The Downtown Alliance is proud to take part in making downtown Salt Lake City a better place to live, work, and play. 

Vision

Downtown Salt Lake City is Utah's center for innovation and prosperity. Dynamic, welcoming and green - our Capital City belongs to everyone.
