Lathrop
The scenery outside the buildings, designed by legendary landscape architect Jens Jensen, will be fully rehabilitated and updated  by landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh (MVVA)– including an iconic swath of green space known as the Great Lawn.  MVVA recently completed Maggie Daley Park and the 606 trail, both in Chicago.  In addition, Lathrop's relationship to its waterfront will be completely rediscovered.  The current configuration of Lathrop largely turns its back on the Chicago River, which borders the site to the west and south but provides little pedestrian access or recreational amenities.  The revitalization will embrace the shoreline with the installation of a riverwalk – equipped with a kayak launch – that will serve as a community mecca and a natural oasis.
