VIDEO: Drone reveals the spectacular success of Chicago’s revitalized riverfront

One year after completion of Chicago Riverwalk, the lead architects—Boston-based Sasaki Associates—have released fascinating drone footage.

It reveals how successfully the Chicago Riverwalk has regenerated a once-dead part of the city, creating a delightful experience for the public.

It’s a great example of the revitalizing 3Re Strategy (repurposing, renewing, reconnecting) in action.

The Riverwalk repurposed an industrial waterfront to serve as a quality-of-life amenity, renewed it into a beautiful promenade, and used it to reconnect citizens to that most revitalizing of substances: water.
