With McHugh Construction leading the work as general contractor, construction has begun for a new indoor ride at Navy Pier called FlyOver (different from the Navy Pier Flyover infrastructure project), which will occupy 48,000 square feet. The project will occupy a 60-foot-high, 80-f0ot-wide volume of space that previously served as an IMAX theater.
The Chicago City Council has approved plans to add Illuminarium as an attraction at Navy Pier. Located in Streeterville, the new venue will be limited to the current Crystal Gardens space with no exterior addition or alterations being made. Illuminarium Chicago LLC is behind the proposal.
