Facts

  • Cityfront Center is a master planned development in the Streeterville neighborhood east of Michigan Avenue. The development area is roughly bounded by Cityfront Plaza Drive, Grand Avenue, Lake Shore Drive, and the Chicago River.
  • Planned in the 1980s on lands formerly used by the Chicago Dock & Canal Trust, the area was built out over decades with different developers and architects. Today, there are only a handful of sites that remain to be developed.
  • A number of proposed developments were never built or fully realized as development busts put an end to the plans, including those for the Chicago Spire, a 2,000-foot condominium tower designed by Santiago Calatrava.
  • Public amenities include a full-length landscaped riverwalk, a similar walkway around the edges of Ogden Slip, and the unusual Centennial Fountain which shoots an arc of water across the river for 10 minutes on the hour.
  • The original master plan was developed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill of Chicago and Cooper Eckstut Associates of New York City.
