Drone captures Chicago Riverfront [VIDEO]

This drone footage shows off a new promenade in Chicago's riverfront area, a year after it opened to the public.

According to an article featured in Dezeen magazine, Sasaki Associates, a design firm, and Ross Barney Architects transformed the area into a renovated public space, with fishing and kayaking spots.

The businesses hired Chang Kim to shoot video of the site, which he captured over two days. It was published on YouTube this week.

The full video combines the drone camera's aerial imagery with ground camera footage shot from a tripod mount.

"We've photographed the project several times now, but static photography doesn't place the viewer in the space quite like moving images can," the Sasaki firm told Dezeen magazine. "We couldn't be happier with how well this video tells the story of this project."

According to Sasaki, the only challenge was drone interference from nearby bridges and metal structures.

UAV regulations also prohibit flights over bridges, "so while we would have loved to do a single aerial pan of the whole project, safety requirements limited our ability to do so," the company noted.
