|Lakeshore Property (Formerly U. S. Steel South Works), 1987
The shoreline on the South Side of Chicago that was laden with steel mills for most of the twentieth century is just beginning to be transformed. The South Works Steel Mill, located ten miles south of the loop between Rainbow Beach and Calumet Park, occupied a mile and a half of lakefront property. In 2004, the city of Chicago was working with South Chicago to develop public space along that stretch of lakefront.
