City Creek’s Challenge

Being developed under the title Tower 8, City Creek’s newest addition to the Salt Lake City skyline is a 24 story office tower that opened in the Fall of 2022. They need a name, brand, and leasing strategy that would be fitting of this forward-thinking monolith of architectural beauty.

Our Solution

Ultimately named after the building address, the identity hides a tilted number 8 (Tower 8) created by the 9 and 5. To help cut through the clutter of yet another leasing brochure, we concepted and created a lifestyle magazine to tell the new brand story in a compelling way.

While working to build the brand story for 95 State at City Creek, it became abundantly clear that the entire four block section of Downtown Salt Lake City, and most importantly the office buildings within it that needed leasing, could all benefit from a brand story that expounded on all the benefits the micro district could provide. In parallel with new architectural and development work on the lobbies and amenities of the four largest office buildings in the district, we built a City Creek brand for the district.
