Mayor Emanuel to announce Chicago Riverwalk developments
Mayor Emanuel is expected to announce the next step in the development of the Chicago Riverwalk Thursday.
The development plan focuses on six blocks surrounding State Street, where a continuous walkway will be built along the river.
Each block would have unique names and special attractions.
One block from Wells to Franklin would feature hosted lessons about the ecology of the river, and piers for fishing.
The Riverwalk will reportedly cost $100 million to complete.
