World Landscape Architect published an article on the recently completed Chicago Riverwalk. The Riverwalk reunites a 1.25 mile long stretch of reclaimed waterfront space along the Chicago River, reconnecting the city with its riverfront.
“This project capitalizes on existing infrastructure, bringing people to the water’s edge and enabling them to walk along the river continuously without needing to move up to the street level to cross to the next block,” said Sasaki principal Gina Ford, ASLA in the article. “The end result is an ecologically sensitive design that improves water quality, enhances visitor experiences and serves as a revenue generator for the city.”
