Located on State Street, Marina City is a commercial cum residential building complex spread across the city blocks. Designed by Bertand Goldberg in the year 1959, the Marina City complex took five years to get completely furnished. On completion, the complex emerged as one of the tallest reinforced concrete structure of North America. The twin towers were planned as a small city within the main city, with prompt availability of several facilities such as, swimming pool, restaurants, theatre, gymnasium, restaurants, ice rink, merchandise stores, bowling alley, and a large marina.
