Marina City, et bolig-/kommersielt bygningskompleks med blandet bruk, var et av de første store urbane høyhuskompleksene etter andre verdenskrig i USA, og fikk mye æren for å starte boligrenessansen til amerikanske indre byer da det ble åpnet i 1964. Ligger på 300 North State Street, på nordbredden av Chicago River, rett overfor Loop, består den av to 587 fot høye, 65-etasjers leilighetstårn, som inkluderer fysiske plante-penthouse-leiligheter, en 10-etasjers kontorbygning som har blitt omgjort til et hotell og en salformet auditoriumbygning som opprinnelig ble brukt som kino. Når de var ferdige, var de to tårnene både de høyeste boligbyggene og de høyeste armerte betongkonstruksjonene i verden. De fire bygningene, tilgangsinnkjørsler og et lite torg som opprinnelig inkluderte en skøytebane er bygget på en hevet plattform ved siden av Chicago River. Under plattformen, på elvenivå, er en liten marina for lystbåter som gir strukturene navnet sitt. Tidligere Notre Dame fotballstjerne og 1953 Heisman Trophy-vinner Johnny Lattner eide en gang en restaurant på stedet, med utsikt over elven. Bygget som en "by i en by", komplekset er for tiden hjemmet til House of Blues konsertsal, restaurant og bar, Hotel Chicago, 10 Pin Bowling Lounge og fire andre restauranter - Smith & Wollensky Steakhouse, Yolk, Katana og Dick's Last Feriested. Marina Citys tårn ble utpekt som et landemerke i Chicago i 2016, og har en symbolsk likhet med landlige maiskolber i Illinois, et komisk trekk som ofte har blitt lagt merke til i media. Boligtårnene har noen interessante funksjoner. Hva med den høye hastigheten til disse heisene? Det tar bare 33 sekunder å reise fra lobbyen på lavere nivå til de 61 takdekkene i gateetasjen. De to tårnene inneholder identiske plantegninger. De nederste 19 etasjene danner en synlig spiralparkeringsrampe som drives av betjent med 896 parkeringsplasser. 20. etasje inneholder vaskerom og treningsrom med panoramautsikt over Sløyfen. Etasje 21 til 60 inneholder leiligheter. Et 360 - graders friluftstak ligger på gaten 61 og øverste etasje. Leilighetene er uvanlige fordi de nesten ikke inneholder innvendige rette vinkler. En sirkulær gang omgir heiskjernen. Hver enhet ender i en halvsirkulær balkong på 175 kvadratfot som er atskilt fra stue med en vindusvegg fra gulv til tak. Hver enhet inneholder individuelle varmtvannsberedere, varme- og kjøleenhet og elektriske komfyrer. Marina City vil for alltid bli husket for det berømte filmstuntet da en bil kjørte av parkeringshuset i Steve McQueens siste film, "The Hunter", 21. september 1979.

Marina City, a mixed-use residential/commercial building complex, was one of the first major post-World War II urban high-rise residential complexes in the United States and was widely credited with beginning the residential renaissance of American inner cities when it was opened in 1964. Located at 300 North State Street, on the north bank of the Chicago River, directly across from the Loop, it consists of two 587-foot-tall, 65-story apartment towers, which include physical plant penthouses, a 10-story office building that has been converted into a hotel and a saddle-shaped auditorium building originally used as a cinema. When finished, the two towers were both the tallest residential buildings and the tallest reinforced concrete structures in the world. The four buildings, access driveways, and a small plaza that originally included an ice rink are built on a raised platform next to the Chicago River. Beneath the platform, at river level, is a small marina for pleasure craft, giving the structures their name. Former Notre Dame football star and 1953 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Lattner once owned a restaurant on the site, overlooking the river. Built as a "city within a city," the complex currently is home to House of Blues concert hall, restaurant and bar, Hotel Chicago, 10Pin Bowling Lounge and four other restaurants--Smith & Wollensky Steakhouse, Yolk, Katana and Dick's Last Resort. Designated a Chicago Landmark in 2016, Marina City's towers boast a symbolic similarity to rural Illinois corncobs, a comical feature that has often been noted in the media. The residential towers have some interesting features. How about the high speed of those elevators? It takes only 33 seconds to travel from the lower-level lobby to the 61st floor roof decks. The two towers contain identical floor plans. The bottom 19 floors form an exposed spiral parking ramp operated by valet with 896 parking spaces. The 20th floor contains a laundry room and gym with panoramic views of the Loop. Floors 21 through 60 contain apartments. A 360-degree open-air roof deck lies on the 61st and top story. The apartments are unusual because they contain almost no interior right angles. A circular hallway surrounds the elevator core. Each unit terminates in a 175-square-foot semi-circular balcony that is separate from the living area by a floor-to-ceiling window wall. Each unit contains individual water heaters, heating and cooling unit and electric stoves. Marina City will forever be remembered for the famous movie stunt when a car drove off the parking garage in Steve McQueen's last movie, "The Hunter," on September 21, 1979.

Spectacular building in the center of Chicago. Its shape, scale and contribution to the urban planning of the area is incredible, how it emerges from the River, the restaurant platform and the continuity of the towers in height.

Marina City was built in 1964 -- 1968 as a mixed-use, residential-commercial complex, designed in a modern, Expressionist style by an American architect and industrial designer Bertrand Goldberg (1913 -- 1997).

Two concrete 587 ft (179m) tall, 65-story Corn Cob Towers are unique in design: all condominiums and rental units don't have interior right angles, and all have semi-circular large balconies, providing spectacular views of the city. The group of buildings in Marina City is often called "the city within a city". The towers have a 19-story garage with a spiral parking ramp, on the 20th floor there's a laundry room and the gym. High-speed elevators provide a fast access to the upper floors of the towers. There's a famous House of Blues on the ground-level plaza.

There are also restaurants, hotels, retail outlets and boat slips at Marina City complex, which is located at the Chicago River bank (Near North Side neighborhood), across from Chicago Loop, and can be easily accessed from the Wabash Avenue Bridge.

It is always enjoyable to see and visit Marina City -- an architectural marvel and iconic site in Chicago. Marina City looks spectacular in the evening hours, as well, and Corn Cob Towers are considered to be the most recognizable structures in Chicago.

Marina City complex was designated Chicago Landmark in 2016.

Unique architecture and buildings with historic importance. Built in the 1960s and located right on the Chicago River in downtown, this building complex is not only famous for its unusual design but was the first urban high-rise development that was meant to encourage people to move back into the city. It was a futuristic self-contained "city withing a city" providing all the amenities that you need in one place including a theater, gym, swimming pool, ice rink, bowling alley, stores, restaurants, and even a boat marina. It became the model for other developments in cities throughout the US. Great views by strolling along the Chicago Riverwalk or even better you can go on an architecture boat tour on the river.

Been here on the 39th floor for a year now. I LOVE IT. Although every person has there individual tastes and opinion I feel this location and building cannot be beat. Especially for the price. Nobody has balconies this size. They are huge. I'm facing the river and I can see Lake Michigan I can see all the way up and down the river in both directions. I can walk to the greatest theaters, restaurants, Riverwalk, lakefront and museums. It doesn't have some of the amenities newer buildings have. There is no pool. The workout room is a workout room, not an expansive gym. It has about 10 treadmills a set of free weights one bench and a few other pieces of equipment. There's rarely more than one person in there. That works for me. The elevators are fast. The employees are kind. I always feel proud as I walk up to the building. Not to mention House of Blues is in my basement lol. I'll let my pictures speak for themselves. Oh...the roof top is open, hosts movie nights weekly, often supplying beer and pizza. This is old school, real deal Chicago.

Today, downtowns across the US are experiencing a Renaissance in large part due to what this historic property did, bring mixed-use residential to the city. Prior to the 1960's downtowns were office, public, finance, commercial retail and industrial property uses. Today, residential and mixed-use are dominating cities and providing most of the growth.

This development was one of the first attempts to bring people back to downtown on a 24/7 basis. The "Corncobs" as they are affectionally known look to maximize living space while also offering urban amenities like parking garage. While the building's Jetson style futuristic design may not be as prevalent, the concept has been wildly successful, thus just another trend stetting structure in Chicago. Today the property has been swallowed by larger buildings around it. However, it still has a prominent location on the Chicago River which is where we saw it on our Architectural Boat Tour. And yes there actually are some marine amenities associated with the complex, thus the name.

I see I'm in a big minority here, but this is my opinion.
Contrary to that my wife likes them.
First we saw these two corn cobs on our architecture boat tour. Guide explained these were the first self sufficient buildings in a city effort to bring people back downtown. They had everything packed in these corns from the garage on lower levels (that's definitely the ugliest thing), washing facilities and gym to residential apartments further up.
Next morning we walked the Riverwalk and I stared for some 5 min trying to like it.
No way - looking the whole picture with other buildings around they look like unfinished yet or like they ran out the funds to put the final glass facade.

Chicago is known as a city of architecture and one of the most unique and most visible and most significant structures is Marina City. Located at 300 North State Street, overlooking the Chicago River, it is a mixed-use residential/commercial building complex. Designed by architect Bertrand Goldberg, it occupies almost an entire city block. Completed between 1964 and 1968, the complex consists of two 587-foot, 65-story apartment towers. It also includes a 10-story hotel and a saddle-shaped auditorium building that originally was used as a cinema. Beneath the twin towers, at river level, is a small marina for pleasure craft, giving the complex its name. When finished, the two towers were both the tallest residential buildings and the tallest reinforced concrete structures in the world. Built as a "city within a city," with a marina, bowling alley, ice rink, swimming pool, gymnasium, theater, retail shops and restaurants, with a base of parking, it has become a primary model for urban development in the United States and throughout the world and has been widely copied in many cities internationally as an effort to reverse the pattern of white flight from the city's downtown area. The two towers contain identical floor plans. The bottom 19 floors form an exposed spiral parking ramp operated by valet with approximately 896 parking spaces. The 20th floor of each tower contains a laundry room and gym with panoramic views of Chicago's Loop. Floors 21 through 60 contain apartments, 450 per tower. On the 61st and top story is a 360-degree open-air roof deck. The apartments are unusual in that they contain almost no interior right angles. Each unit terminates in a 175-square-foot semi-circular balcony separated from living areas by a floor-to-ceiling window wall. Interestingly, every single living room and bedroom in Marina City has a balcony. In addition, the towers are noted for the high speed of their elevators, a joy to residents in tall buildings. It takes about 33 seconds to travel from the lower-level lobby to the 61st floor roof deck. In the 1960s and 1970s, Marina City was known as the popular home of former football star Johnny Lattner's restaurant.

Iconic Chicago architecture at its best. Who doesn’t love these structures? You can get good views from a boat tour(we took Wendella) or from the south side of the river off of Michigan Avenue. These are photos you keep forever.

Da serie queria morar nesse lugar, eis que você está caminhando pela cidade e se depara com esses prédios lindos, com essa arquitetura incrível e super diferente. Nao tem como passar desapercebido, muitos turistas param par tirar fotos, e um prédio residencial e inclusive dá pra ver os carros na garagem que literalmente ficam no meio do prédio.
