Riverwalk View

Uploaded: November 07, 2015 08:29:57 | Entered: November 07, 2015 08:29:58


The City of Chicago, which is going broke, is spending $100 million dollars on fixing up the river walk along the Chicago River. The design plans include conceptual ideas for each of the six blocks from State Street west to Lake Street with distinctive identities and purpose, thematically named: The Marina (from State to Dearborn); The Cove (Dearborn to Clark); The River Theater (Clark to LaSalle); The Swimming Hole (LaSalle to Wells); The Jetty (Wells to Franklin) and The Boardwalk (Franklin to Lake).

The bridges over the river establish a boundary between each block, which allow for each to have a unique identity and landscaping. Each block will be linked by the continuous walkway along the river, beneath each bridge.
