Michigan Avenue's 1000M Focuses on Inner Space
We don’t do a lot of news about interiors around here. But then we haven’t heard too much out of 1000M in a while, either. So that’s why we’re mentioning that the people behind Helmut Jahn’s new Michigan Avenue skyscraper have picked Kara Mann to kit out the inside of the 74-story tower.

Helmut Jahn-Designed Skyscraper to Rise on Chicago's Historic Michigan Avenue
Renderings have been revealed for a new 832-foot-tall skyscraper that will rise from a current vacant lot on Chicago’s historic Michigan Avenue. Known as 1000M, the tower has been designed by JAHN, the practice helmed by one of Chicago’s most prolific architects, Helmut Jahn. The 74-story building will feature a blue-green glass curtain wall subdivided with metal horizontal spandrel panels, and a metallic mesh crown hovering over a rooftop terrace.

Helmut Jahn on His Practice, His Career, and His Most Recent Chicago Project 1000M
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.

A detailed look at 1000M, Helmut Jahn's 74-story South Loop condo tower
As the yet-to-be-built 74-story South Loop skyscraper known as 1000M prepares to start marketing its 323 luxury condominiums, a pair of newly-provided renderings offer the best look yet at the upcoming Helmut Jahn-designed tower. The 832-foot building will feature greenish blue glass, metal horizontal spandrels between each floor, and a crown screened in metallic mesh. Previous—and far less polished—renderings also hint at an unusual exterior lighting element repeated along the tower’s northeast edge.

New Skyline sprouting in South Loop as luxury apartment hit-rise breaks ground
The tallest of the new buildings is an 832-foot apartment and condominium tower set for 1000 S. Michigan Ave. Approved by the city last year, the Helmut Jahn-designed tower is 200 feet shorter than originally proposed, but would still rank as one of the tallest high-rises in Chicago.

Site for planned 73-story tower sells for $17 million
Two New York developers that plan a 73-story residential tower on a vacant property across from Grant Park paid $17.2 million for the site, the latest in a series of deals that illustrate the real estate market's recent roller-coaster ride. A joint venture between JK Equities and Time Equities bought the parcel at 1000 S. Michigan Ave. last month from First American Bank, Cook County property records show. The site has been on a wild trip over the past decade or so, with its value soaring during the condominium boom, crashing after the bust and heading back up as the residential market bounced back.

Helmut Jahn's 73-Story South Loop Skyscraper Clear City Panel
Helmut Jahn's sky-high vision for the South Loop is one step closer to reality. The Chicago Plan Commission on Thursday approved the 73-story, Jahn-designed tower proposed for 1000 S. Michigan Ave. If built, the tower would be among the tallest near the rapidly changing southern end of Grant Park.

Helmut Jahn Proves Better Doesn't Have To Be Bigger
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.

Jahn Pulls a 1,030-Foot-Tall Rabbit Out of His Helmut
We’ve known for some time that a new skyscraper was coming to fill in the surface parking lot currently defiling 1000 South Michigan Avenue. Crain’s Chicago Business broke the news last month, and even told us that starchitect Helmut Jahn had been chosen to work his magic in one of the South Loop’s most visible gaps. But few could have predicted what would hit the City Clerk’s office today.
