Modern Luxury Chicago Best New Development: 1000M
Edgy Yet Sophisticated Designs by Kara Mann

As can be read in their January 2018 print edition, they write, “When 1000M comes to fruition in 2021, it will be one of the city’s tallest buildings and will occupy the last piece of undeveloped land in the Historic Michigan Boulevard District overlooking the lake and Grant Park. Renowned German architect and longtime Chicago resident Helmut Jahn has envisioned a graceful tower with soft edges that optimizes views from every unit. All 323 interiors and the 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor common spaces are under the direction of Kara Mann, who has brought her edgy sophistication to all of the finishes and layouts. Amenities include a hotel-style pool and sun deck with cabanas and loungers, a spa with a meditation room, plunge pools, a beauty bar and hydration station, a library lounge, a music conservatory and Club 1000 on floor 72—a sleekly designed space that brings the outdoors in and features a massive black stone fireplace, unique green walls and a full-service bar. Construction starts later this year, and we think it’s fair to say that it will change the landscape of Michigan Avenue and beyond.”

Thank you to both the NAHB and Modern Luxury Interiors! We are incredibly proud here at 1000M and look forward to what’s in store for the future.
