Omni was thrilled to accept Friends of the Chicago River’s Silver Ribbon Award celebrating our team’s visionary Wild Mile Plan.

Our framework plan revitalizes a one-mile stretch of the Chicago River near Goose Island. The plan includes the world’s first mile-long floating eco-park. Through these innovative design strategies, the Wild Mile plan aims to restore habitat and create new educational and recreational opportunities along the river’s edge.

This exciting vision was the result of a months-long, multi-disciplinary collaboration between Omni, Urban Rivers, Skidmore Owings & Merrill, the City of Chicago Department of Planning, O-H Community Partners, Tetra Tech, d’Escoto Inc. and valuable input from the community.
