The 65-story, 900-unit Marina City twin towers at 300 N. State Street, Chicago, opened in 1962, embrace the Mad Men era with their retro cement exteriors and circular shapes.
When they started excavating in 1960, they found remnants in the ground from the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. Not only has the building history beneath it, but Marina City also made a name for itself in Chicago and across the world with its corn-cob appearance and interiors which have almost no right angles. On each residential floor, a circular hallway surrounds the elevator core, surrounded by 16 pie-shaped wedges that make up the condos.
What is it like to live in the iconic Marina City in Chicago River North? Well, it's loud, but the highlight of living in the architectural icon is the units� outdoor spaces provided by the huge balconies.
