Another look at the South Loop’s upcoming 1000M tower
19 July 2017
“The marketing effort for the planned 74-story residential tower at 1000 S. Michigan Avenue continues with a refreshed website, an bus ad campaign, and the unveiling of a couple of new high-res images. The new renderings, provided exclusively to Curbed by the 1000M team, reveal how the 832-foot tower, along with a handful of other tall buildings, will continue to fill out and reshape the Chicago skyline while delivering hundreds of new residences—323 to be precise—to the South Loop neighborhood. With Chicago’s JAHN tapped to design the tower and Kara Mann overseeing interior duties, the tower is certainly one of the highest profile projects of this development cycle.
The latest and most detailed look at the towers helps to illustrate the evolution of the tower’s design and its programming. While the exterior design has been changed dramatically from the boxy, modular look that was originally presented nearly two years ago, the newer curvy, shape with undulating sides and building width still speaks to the new wave of structural expressionism that has swept over Chicago in recent years. Still expected to make a striking visual impact on the city’s skyline, the modified project was approved by the city last year. Aesthetically, the tower shares similarities with the 780-foot 50 West tower that JAHN designed for Manhattan.”
