Marina City, Chicago: 12 reviews and 16 photos
Marina City is located on North State Street, towering high above the banks of the Chicago River. To the locals, the twin towers are known as the "corn cobs", because of their obvious resemblance to giant stocks of corn.
Construction on the towers were completed in 1964 by Bertrand GoldBerg. At that time, the two 60 story, concrete buildings were the tallest residential buildings in the world. Home to 18 stories of parking, a bowling alley, movie theatre, restaurants, 16 floors of office space, over 450 apartments, a gymnasium, banks, swimming pool and skating rink, and a marina for equipped for a modest 700 small boats.
The Marina towers are a sight to see, and just one of the countless examples of the modern architecture that liters Chicagos skyline.
