What's new with NPM?

Greetings Navy Pier Marina Followers,


We hope you enjoyed your boating season and are settling in for some safe, yet enjoyable holidays.  We want to update you on the Navy Pier Marina project.


Despite all other governmental agencies and approvals being in place, we have not received our final permit to construct from the City Department of Transportation.  Please understand that we are working hard to finalize permitting and get construction started, but given Covid circumstances, we are required to delay the grand opening until Spring of 2022.  While this is disappointing to us at NPM, I can assure you that we are ready to proceed once the bureaucratic logjam has loosened.


We promised you periodic updates.  As an active boater I am as anxious as I know you are to have the opportunity to utilize The People’s Pier for transient mooring at Navy Pier as soon as possible – as Chicago and Navy Pier envisioned in the Pier’s Centennial Vision & Planned Development.


We will keep you updated as we learn more.  We appreciate your patience and continued support.  Help us to spread the word.  Follow us on FaceBook & Instagram and please, tell ALL your boating friends and boat lovers to sign up for newsletter updates so they will be the first to know, too!


We wish you a safe journey as we close out 2020 forever!  We pray for a safe and peaceful 2021 for all. 





Randy D. Podolsky, Manager
