Revitalizing a lakeshore city with access to retail, riverfront, marinas, and parks.

Master Plan
Michigan City
Michigan City, IN

Michigan City is a town of 30,000 located on Lake Michigan and the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Because of its location, it is becoming a popular second home for many Chicagoans. To help revitalize the north end of the town, the City Planning Department commissioned the development of a master plan for a 20-acre site across from a large casino and hotel complex. The plan includes retail on part of the riverfront, residential, a river walk, marinas, and two new public parks. A special feature is an aerial tram that would fly over a tall sand dune that separates the site from the Lake Michigan beaches.

One of the proposed parks, the Charles K. Westcott Park, was realized in 2010.
