I enjoy those buildings. Very cool design of this building. It look like Corn Cob Towers. I always know it is in Chicago.

These buildings are two of my favorite buildings in Chicago. Love the design, something I've never seen before. I also get to look at them every day as we are staying across the street. We took the architecture boat tour of the city, which told...More

Quite spectacular views of the twin Corn Cob Towers and from those towers. We visited this unique high-rise residential complex long time ago and were shown one of the condos -- the aerial 360 degrees views of the whole city and its suburbs were fascinating....More

Marina City is unique and wonderful. During the last two years, I have had the privilege of viewing the two towers on my way to work at a neighboring office building. The sight of such extraordinary architecture along the Chicago River never grows old no...More

We did not go into Marina City, but sat across the river from the buildings and watched the sun set. The buildings are spectacular and just really cool to see. Definitely worth a visit, if only to take pictures of the buildings!

Marina City is one of Chicago's more unique skyscrapers. While most of them have something, in Chicago or elsewhere, that is similar, there's nothing like Marina City. It's also placed along the Chicago River, making it one of the many great buildings along that stretch.

There are so many parking garages in the area. We parked around Ohio and Wabash and paid $150 for three days, which was a better rate than what the hotel would have been.
