Marina City Towers

Marina Towers, originally uploaded by Nat Hansen.

According to The Architecture of Parking, getting to a parking space on the 19th level of one of the Marina City Towers parking garages requires driving one kilometer each way up and down, "perilously close to a precipitous edge, steering wheel in a fixed lock" (p.225).

The parking structure, and the possibility of driving your car off the side and into the Chicago River, is on display in this clip from Steve McQueen's The Hunter.
