Our Progress: Renderings & Images

Navy Pier’s dynamic lakefront location has been a part of Chicago’s history since 1916. Now, we’re building excitement at Navy Pier and through stunning pictures and time lapse videos we’re capturing every second of it! View the reimagination through renderings and then see the renderings come to life in each photograph.

Phase I of our Pierscape redevelopment features important and exciting elements that will only enhance your Navy Pier experience. For example:

  • Did you know that most of the trees and plantings have been locally-sourced from within 50 miles and are native to the Chicago eco-region? Tree species include the Marmo Maple and the WOW American Sycamore.
  • Did you know a dazzling newly built illuminated grand staircase now leads you to Navy Pier’s iconic Centennial wheel?
  • Did you know we've finished our new and visually stunning Wave Wall, imagined and designed by famed architect James Corner?

Our progress on all of this and much more can be seen just below!

Be sure to check back regularly for updated images and, snapshot by snapshot, watch Navy Pier become reimagined every step of the way!
