Riverview Bridge is a 1,000-foot pedestrian and bicycle bridge that crosses the Chicago River just north of Addison street to California Park helping create a nearly contiguous 2-mile long recreational trail.

This project was chosen by Chicago Architecture Center’s docents in a round one jury review from over 125 projects submitted during AIA Chicago’s Design Excellence Awards.

The public will vote for one of the five finalist projects in each of the eight project categories:


Community and Cultural


Hospitality and Retail

Multifamily Residential

Single-Family Residential


Tall Building
