"As construction crews continue to pull the Chicago Riverwalk farther into the city’s iconic waterway, Sasaki Associates has released a short documentary about the $100 million transformation," reports Henry Malach. Assocrding to Malach, the documentary is "worth a watch because what’s happening in Chicago is more than your typical 'reclaiming public space' type of story."

In fact, writes Malach, "the Riverwalk will have a seamless path that connects its distinct segments: the marina, the cove, the river theater, the water plaza, and the jetty. Collectively, the Riverwalk includes new seating, floating wetland gardens, piers, and a water plaza."
