Description Downtown's Share (Chart III) As part of the national trend, decentralization of retail activities has already occurred to a large degree in the Convenience lines-- drugs, eating, automotive, etc. This is to be expected, since these services should be provided close to where people live. Currently, however, several large shopping centers springing up in outlying areas are based around major department store branches, junior department stores, and variety and apparel stores. This latter trend is at the direct expense of Downtown Salt Lake City. The result is that Downtown's share of metropolitan area sales has dropped from 35.8% in 1948 to the present 20%. Further sharp decreases will be felt in department store, variety and apparel categories during the next five years as a result of the shopping centers currently planned for completion during this period. This will drop Downtown's over-all share to 15%, after which it is expected to level off. Total Retail Sales for Downtown (Chart IV) In terms of dollar volume, however, there will be a continual expansion of Downtown activity. Dollar volume will at first remain somewhat constant, due to the increasing percentage absorbed by the new shopping centers as they open; after this five-year period, however, even though the percentage remains constant, the dollar volume is expected to rise steadily to almost double by 1985 (from $109.4 million to $204.9 million) . Floor Spaces (Chart V) Within the study area (6th South to Capitol, 1st West to 2nd East) floor spaces should generally double by 1985 for the following activities: Retail: from 2, 050, 000 sq. ft. to 4,100,000 sq. ft. Supporting services and general commercial: 1,200,000 to 2,300,000 Wholesaling and warehousing: 890,000 to 1,700,000 Financial: 460,000 to 880,000 General office and business activity: 1, 200, 000 to 2, 100, 000 Government: 640,000 to 1,200,000 Utilities: 140, 000 to 320, 000 -23-
