A look at the new skyscrapers that will forever change Chicago’s skyline

A far-off look at the 1000M tower reaching into the skyline.


Chicago is the birthplace of the skyscraper, and this year, a new generation of towers shooting above 800 feet are changing the city skyline in an exciting way. 

Curbed Chicago recently shared a feature on this new, transformative generation of skyscrapers, including a highlight on 1000M. Here’s what they had to say:

This Helmut Jahn-created condo building at 1000 S. Michigan Avenue will make a sizable impact on Chicago’s southern skyline when it eventually soars 832-feet over Grant Park. The glassy 74-story skyscraper will replace a surface parking lot with 421 luxury condominiums with interiors designed by Kara Mann. 

Project developers Time Equities, Oaks Capital, and JK Equities are currently pre-sales mode and have listed a number of units including a South Loop record-shattering $8.1 million penthouse. Provided pre-construction sales are strong, 1000M could break ground in late 2019 and welcome residents in mid-2021.”
