Northerly Island
Northerly Island is a 91-acre man-made peninsula on the shores of southern Lake Michigan in Chicago that was a part of Daniel Burnham’s 1909 Plan of Chicago to reclaim the lakefront for the public. The construction contract was awarded in September 2012 using a combination of U.S. EPA-managed GLRI, USACE, and nonfederal funding. The nonfederal partner is the Chicago Park District.
