Malina City is one of Chicago's landmarks. Two twin buildings in the shape of corn appear in almost all movies involving Chicago. It consists of two 61-storey, 179-meter (587-foot) high residential buildings, a saddle-shaped auditorium and a medium-height Hotel building, including theatres, gymnasiums, swimming pools, skating rinks, bowling alleys and some shops and restaurants. ?
Marina City is known as the Corn Tower because it resembles the corn cob in shape. It has become a landmark of Chicago successfully. It has appeared in a large number of related film and television works and brochures. The complex consists of two 61-storey, 179-metre-high residential buildings with a unique design of "Midtown". It includes restaurants, theatres, bowling alleys and wharfs for 700 boats.
I heard before I went to Chicago that the city's architecture was very distinctive, including the Corn Tower as a twin brother. It was only in Chicago that the official name of the Corn Tower was Marina City. It was only because the building looked like a corn cob that it was called the Corn Tower. These two buildings are really beautiful. They are situated on the Bank of Michigan River. Especially the parking lot is below the 18 floors of the building. There is no solid wall around them. The rear of a car is facing out. It is very worrying to watch. Should the driver fail to brake in time when parking, will he fall down?
Marina City is a place where almost all college students in aesthetic architecture come to make pilgrimages. The exterior is like a big corn, with a parking lot at the bottom and a house on top. It's the product of a new type of housing in the United States in the 1960s. The parking lot in the second half of the city is worth seeing to solve the problem of shortage of parking space in the city centre, and to upgrade the house so that residents can enjoy the sunshine (high-rise buildings in the city centre, low-rise sunshine is easily blocked).
I haven't been in, because it's opposite the hotel where I live, and I can see it every day when I go out. Below is the parking lot, above is the office building, very distinctive building. It's really a very special building. It's very shocking when you look at it.
Marina City is a famous landmark building in Chicago. I think it's worth spending time here. The surrounding scenery is very good. This double-storey building has a strange shape, a riverside corn house, a house price of $USD, a car parking in the middle of the upper class and a boat parking in the lower class.
Marina City, commonly known as the Corn Tower, looks like two big corn cobs. The building has a strange appearance. These two buildings are on the North Bank of the Chicago River, adding color to the Chicago River sightseeing. Many people take pictures here because the tall buildings with this shape are unique. The 60-storey building, with a dock below, has a spiral urban garage on the ground to the 18th floor. The parking fee in this parking lot is very expensive. Parking fees are expensive in downtown Chicago. The cheapest parking fee I see in an indoor parking lot is $13 per hour. The upper floor is an apartment. Apart from living at home, the building also has shopping malls, offices, cinemas and skating rinks, like a small city. Visiting the Corn Tower, you can take a cruise boat to look up from the river. You can also get off at State/Lake Station on the brown line, green line, purple line and orange line of the subway and walk to the Bataan-Corregidor Memorial Bridge to enjoy it on the bridge. Marina City is on the Chicago Riverside on State St.
