Navy Pier South Dock Renovation

Location: Chicago, IL
Client: Navy Pier, Inc.
Architect: Gensler/JFCO/Mason
Year Built: 2015

Navy Pier, Inc. (NPI) issued its Centennial Vision in June of 2011, a framework plan that outlined NPI’s long-term vision that would guide the redevelopment of the Pier. The scope of work included renovations to the South Dock, South Arcade, Family Pavilion, and Polk Bros Park.

Part of the South Arcade renovation included a new food court. The new space, located just below the renovated ‘wave wall’, now houses several food retailers including the Goddness and the Baker, Frankies and Big Bowl. Madison also completed the tenant build-out for the Margaritaville restaurant.

The Pier remained open to millions of people during construction.
