Named for its address, 1000 South Michigan has been in the works for some time now. Originally set to be a “supertall” building at 1,000 feet, the design has since been scaled back a bit. It’s now 852 feet tall and cantilevers slightly over its neighbors. Stepped boxes have been replaced with sloped sides and curved corners. It’s intended to both fit into its context and stand out—a sleek and confident building bearing the mark of an architect who no longer needs to flash.

The court of public opinion voted down the original plan as too tall for the Michigan Avenue corridor. But instead of merely lopping off a couple hundred feet, Jahn went back to the drawing board to create an entirely different look for the structure, replacing the stacked-block design of the first tower with a curving, twisting tower that actually widens as it grows higher. In fact, that twist would have 1000 South Michigan hanging over its neighbor to the north, 1006 South Michigan, a landmarked building that happens to also be owned by Times Equities, the developer of the Jahn tower.
