The Marina City, dominated by its twin 'corncob' towers, this mixed-use complex designed by Bertrand Goldberg has had a mixed history since its completion in 1967. The Condos that top the spiraling parking garage are quite popular and especially picturesque at Chistmastime, when owners decorate the scalloped balconies with a profusion of lights. The marina at the foot of the complex does all right in the summer, but much of the rest of the space, intended for stores, restaurants, a bowling alley and other recreational services, was mired in bankruptcy court until House of Blues opened in the long-dead theater.
