Mall owner seeks to retain zoning

It's the height of Utah's construction season, but the only work being done on the former Cottonwood Mall site is removal of massive thistles and weeds along a nearby creek.

And that situation is not likely to change anytime soon, General Growth Properties Inc. spokesman Kris Longson told the Holladay City Council on Thursday.

"I wish I had further insights," said Longson, who represents the Chicago-based company that owns the mall property. "The market hasn't changed."

General Growth cannot move forward with its "European village" until consumer confidence returns in the housing and retail sectors, the mall spokesman said.
