Marina city is a complex of two cylindrical towers near the Chicago River. Due to their unique shape, the towers are locally known as the ‘corn cobs’.

Two 60-story towers built in 1964 by Bertrand GoldBerg, a student of Mies van der Rohe. It is a lively complex of apartments, recreation facilities, offices, restaurants, banks, a theater and 18 stories of parking space. The complex even boasts a dock at the Chicago River underneath the towers.

    Having lived in Chicago all my life, it is a pleaure to see a different angle on the Marina Towers. One of the coolest shot of them I have seen. Nice angle and zoom.

  • Well, you live in a beautiful city Adam! I saw Chicago for the first time on this trip, we loved it, with the river running through it. Thank you for your comment. =)
