Tourists in Chicago may someday tour the skyline in glass aerial cable cars.
This ambitious project is a proposal by the firm David Brody Bond and envisions cable cars running high above Michigan Avenue.
The cable system would link Navy Pier, the riverwalk and lakefront with downtown Chicago. Designers say the system could carry up to 3000 people per hour along the route. Stations located near Millennium Park and Michigan Avenue would lift sightseers high above the streets– atrracting visitors while easing congestion.
Designed in collaboration by Davis Brody Bond and Marks Barfield Architects, the Chicago SkyLine is a sophisticated, environmentally friendly, aerial cable car that links Navy Pier, the Chicago Lakefront, and the Riverwalk with downtown Chicago.
