Chicago as a International Waterfront Destination

According to Great Lakes Boating, there's a lot of excitement and optimism in Chicago, surrounding what someday soon will be transformed into Gateway Harbor. The old "Dime Pier" is set to become the center spine of the new harbor, which should have over 240 slips, including about 160 transient spots.

In addition, a second new marina at 31st Street, is also in the planning stages. Sheltered behind a 1,200-foot breakwater, the new marina will reportedly have space for between 800 and 830 boats. In addition to a 2.2 acre park, this marina is also set to include an underground parking garage and a restaurant. Now if they can just get a shuttle running to the Red Head Lounge, we'll be in business...
