The Chicago landmark Navy Pier will close again after having relatively few visitors because of the coronavirus pandemic, The Chicago Tribune noted.

The attraction will shut down again Tuesday, Sept. 8, and stay shut until spring in order to save money and protect the attraction's long-term financial health.

One new business may open, however. The new 222-room Sable Hotel atop an existing pier building is almost complete, and pier officials said it could go ahead and open while the rest of the pier is closed.
