River North exudes a large number of restaurants, galleries, shops, boutiques and night spots. A former commercial area of Chicago, River North has been transformed over the past 30 years into an up-and-coming neighborhood of high-rises, converted multi-unit dwellings and lofts.

The Magnificent Mile, the Loop, Millennium Park are very close by. The gallery community is huge in River North, and it has been said that only Manhattan has a stronger gallery presence.[1]

The sound insulation includes two inch thick blow-in cellulose insulation in the exterior walls, and four and a half inch thick blown-in cellulose insulation in demising walls and all interior walls. Two layers of drywall are found on both sides of all demising walls.[3]

Navy Pier

Chicago's number one tourist attraction lies just a quick drive east of Superior 110. Navy Pier is a 3,300-foot long pier on the shoreline of Lake Michigan. Built in 1916 for $4.5 million, Navy Pier was a part of the Plan of Chicago by architect and city planner Daniel Burnham. It was planned to serve as a multi-purposed piece of public infrastructure, including a cargo facility, a place for warehouses, a docking facility for passenger excursions, and a place for public gatherings and entertainment. In its early days, the pier even had its own streetcar.

Today the pier is a huge tourist attraction, and exhibits everything from the Navy Pier Ferris Wheel, musical carousel, the Light Tower Ride and Wave Swinger, an old-fashioned thrill ride, miniature gold, and token-operated remote-control boats.[5]
