SUSTAINABILITY AT 1000M
13 September 2018
At 1000M, we take pride in offering amenities you won’t find elsewhere in Chicago. From our Himalayan Salt Room to our Sky Terrace on Level 72, our features are unmatched in luxury and reflect an appreciation for all things of beauty. Our efforts in sustainability mirror this ethos and emphasize the preservation of our beautiful earth. Here are just a few ways our building remains conscious of our environmental impact:
Our residential water fixtures including sinks, showers and water closets are assessed for efficient water use. Storm water runoff is collected and stored to reduce the building’s impact on the city’s sewer system. And with our gorgeous views of Lake Michigan, we hope our residents will be inspired to take small steps to conserve water.
We’re reducing our impact on the environment through several strategies including redirecting construction and building waste away from landfills and selecting core building materials that contain high levels of recycled materials and are manufactured/harvested and supplied locally, within a 500-mile radius of the project site. 1000M is already making headlines for combining eco-friendly features with breathtaking design.
All in the Details
Our building includes vital details that create a more sustainable system. 1000M’s specifications increase energy efficiency by exchanging the energy from the exhaust systems to the 100% outdoor air system, allowing for continuous introduction of filtered outdoor air while minimizing the energy impact. Our on-demand, heated water is provided with maximum efficiency through a recirculated heat system, and high efficiency plumbing fixtures reduce the building’s overall water and sewer use.
Of all the beautiful things in life, our earth is the most precious. And in our place at the intersection of Chicago’s sprawling metropolis and Lake Michigan’s waterfront, 1000M is dedicated to providing residents with an immaculate living experience, without compromising environmental awareness.
