New Maggie Daley Restaurant Caught Up in Park Land Debate

April 7, 2015

Curbed Chicago reports on the debate over the new restaurant planned for the southern edge of Maggie Daley Park. Bob O'Neill, president of the Grant Park Conservancy believes the restaurant proposal extends green space via its roof in an "elegant manner." "You need to have amenities to get people to use parks or they'll be dead space," O'Neill says. "This is an airy, open restaurant with a green roof that's very sensitive to the location." O'Neill also argues that, contrary to the idea that we're losing green space, the city has actually been expanding them, claiming Chicago has added 100 acres over the last few decades.
