Marina City

Architecture in Near North & Navy Pier

The twin corncob towers of Marina City are an Instagram favorite for their futuristic, cartoony look. Bertrand Goldberg designed the 1964 high-rise, and it has become an iconic part of the Chicago skyline (check out the cover of the Wilco CD Yankee Hotel Foxtrot). And yes, there is a marina at the towers' base.
