Building on Burnham

Building on Burnham

By preserving, protecting and improving our natural areas, we are building on the blueprint of Daniel Burnham's Plan for Chicago.

Mayor Emanuel outlined the future of Chicago as a two-waterfront city in his second Bulding on Burnham address. Since 2011, 985 new acres of parks have been acquired and 5.5 miles of new waterfront access developed under Building on Burnham.
