Chicago’s latest residential developments shaping the Windy City skyline

1000M media spotlight on Wallpaper*


“Reaching over 250m high, 1000M is set to be one of the tallest buildings of Chicago’s skyline. Designed by German architect Helmut Jahn, the development sits at the south end of the Historic Michigan Boulevard District. The building takes design cues from the proximate Grant Park; carefully shaped, the east and west facades are gently curved, whilst triangular planes at the north and south give the building an elegant trim.

The interior floorplan is simply organised. Ground floor residential lobbies lead to a common amenity level above the 439-bay garage. Mixed typologies of condominiums numbering 421 wind up to the 71st floor. One set of homes, named the ‘International Collection’ (pictured) take inspiration from luxury tower homes in Europe. Nearby cultural institutions include the Art Institute of Chicago, Field Museum and Soldier Field.”
