SALT LAKE CITY - The Walker Center in downtown Salt Lake City celebrated its 100th anniversary on Thursday.

Construction on the building began in November 1911 and was finished 13 months later. The Walker Center first opened its doors on Dec. 9, 2012. At the time, it was the tallest building between Chicago and San Francisco.

The building features a weather tower and the different colored lights predict different weather forecasts. Solid red is snow, flashing red is rain, flashing blue is cloudy skies and solid blue means blue skies.
