Fun With Urban Planning

New, 6 comments

To mark this week's congregation of urban planners at the APA's national conference in Chicago, Streetsblog has built a "quick-and-dirty guide" to local planning highlights and lowlights. Among the bad is the Greenway Self-Park in River North, housing 715 cars and a tower of wind turbines that hardly ever rotate. There's also "Chicago's Dumbest Intersection" — Michigan & Randolph, where getting to and from Millennium Park is a daunting task. Among the good are the reinstated Queen's Landing crosswalk, planned Riverwalk extension, and the new Morgan CTA station. The lone "ugly" nominee is the Lakeshore Trail bottleneck at Navy Pier. Check out the author's case for each. [Streetsblog, photo: Kevin Dickert]
