2020 Chicago River Blue Awards

Posted June 25th, 2020 by Cate Muller

M2 was thrilled to learn that our recent work on the Chicago Riverwalk East as been recognized by the Friends of the Chicago River organization and given the Silver Ribbon Award! These awards are given to projects in the Chicago River Watershed for their river-supporting characteristics.

“2020 award winners represent excellence in design, planning, and the creative thinking that is needed to realize our vision for a vibrant and healthy blue-green corridor.” – Friends of the Chicago River

M2 along with Site Design Group worked closely with the City of Chicago to create and implement a master plan to extend the river walk east and connect it to the lakefront path. Landscape improvements, along with generous seating and amenity areas have helped to transform the rivers edge and create a destination for locals and visitors alike.

Additional team members include dbHMS and David Mason Associates.

More information on all the winners can be found here at the Friends of the Chicago River website.
