I know it's not easy to get a new bridge approved but hopefully Willow goes forward. That's really the best pedestrian route to the L (at Armitage).

Things feel pretty active down there right now -- lots of construction sites and stuff going on.

1665 N Throop St has a permit that's pending, so that'll kick off the Steelyard

One thing that sticks out in the renders, the first image, is the water taxi. Since moving to NYC, I have come to appreciate the ferry system along the East River. It's both a fun and surprisingly useful way to get to Manhattan and Brooklyn from my neighborhood in Queens.

With the Lincoln Yards, the casino, the 78, and other developments along the branches, the water taxi system can help fill in some additional public transportation gaps. It's not a cure-all, obviously, but it helps. And it is fun.

Yeah, I think if Chicago embraces the water taxi, it could really change the feel and identity of the city. Originally the public lakefront did this, and more recently the Riverwalk has been a huge change to the feel of downtown. If the North Branch riverfront really gets developed with commercial/residential/retail like this, I think this could be how many people remember and associate with Chicago.

100% agree with this. I'm really hoping once the next phase gets going, along with the casino, the city starts investing into the North Branch. There's so much potential here.

Also, maybe I'm being greedy, but I really hope we get a couple cool signature towers in this development. Not necessarily signature in terms of height (supertalls, etc), but signature in architectural style. Given how apart from downtown this development is, and it's visibility, I would hate to see a good opportunity squandered.

Sweet! I walked by the development recently and noticed the life sciences building still has some work left to be done. It was so crazy to stand there in front of the vast open land and try to imagine this all fully built out.

And an incredibly inefficient use of taxpayer dollars.

Fiscal year 2021 the East River Ferry subsidy, per rider, was $12.88.

Meanwhile subsidies for MTA subways were $1.05 per rider. MTA buses? $4.92 per rider.

Perhaps Chicago is doing a little better since the fare is higher and the service is minimal by comparison. Does anyone have metrics to share?

Chicago Water Taxi is a private company. (Operated by Wendella). It doesn’t actually receive taxpayer subsidies.

They pay the city to lease the docks, though sometimes the city will sponsor a new vessel purchase.

When Chicagoans discuss expanding the Water Taxi service, it’s about building new docks. Wendella ultimately decides whether it’s a desirable route or not.

Does the East River in NY freeze over for 2-3 months of the year?

Yea, that's the point. Water taxi's in Chicago are more novelty than utile. A good thing but nothing that can be relied on on a yearly basis like in NYC. Just don't seeing it taking off much more than that.

Hover craft. They use them in Dnemark and the Netherlands. They can go right over the ice in winter. If there was a high speed hover craft flying down the Chicago river in January I'd be on it every day and I dont even work anywhere near the river.
