Westbank Riverwalk at a Glance
Why the Westbank Riverwalk?
Chicago’s Riverwalk has historically realized a 70% return on investment.
To date, the City has invested in Riverwalk East improvements that have spurred greater tourism, substantial private business investment, and increased the tax base substantially, but has yet to realize the potential of Riverwalk West.
An estimated 200 construction jobs will be created for the Westbank Riverwalk development. An estimated 330 jobs will be created to manage the Westbank Riverwalk facilities, tourism, and restaurants.
Riverwalk investments contribute to the quality of life in Chicago and improve our economic competitiveness as a city.
