  • Insulated glass units with selective solar coating providing high visible light transmittance and low reflectance to satisfy occupant comfort and meet energy standards.


  • Post tensioned concrete floor slabs are stabilized with an innovative ­­­buttressed core lateral system designed to resist the maximum wind forces expected over a 700-year interval. Exterior columns shift at each level and floor slabs increase in thickness with building height to accommodate the extended size of upper levels allowing for column-free interiors and open unit layouts.
  • Occupant comfort is optimized through rooftop liquid slosh dampers minimizing building motions, which may occur during large wind storms.
  • Drilled concrete caissons up to 8-foot in diameter and 100-feet deep bear solidly on dolomite bedrock.


  • Two groups of 3500-pound capacity residential elevators will serve the building.
  • All residential elevators will have stops at Level 1, the Parking Garage, Levels 2 to 10, as well as the Amenity Floor at Level 11.
  • Two 500-foot/minute low-rise residential elevators will serve the Avenue Condominiums, Levels 3 to 19.
  • Three 1200-foot/minute high-rise residential elevators will serve Levels 20 to 71 and the Amenity Floor at Level 72.
  • Service needs for moves and maintenance will be handled by a 4000-pound capacity 1200 FPM elevator that will act as part of the high-rise group for normal passenger operation and swing out for service needs. This elevator will also serve as the Fireman’s Emergency Elevator.


  • Residences will feature enhanced sound control at walls and floors to provide a high degree of privacy between residences and from floor to floor.
  • Mechanical and plumbing systems utilize noise and vibration control technology.


  • 1000M is registered with the USGBC, United States Green Building Council, and will be a LEED Certified Building. This certification is based on the following parameters.


  • All interior materials including paints, adhesives, sealants and coating have been vetted for harmful volatile organic compounds (VOC’s). Outdoor air is carefully filtered and delivered to each residence to minimize pollutants, allergens and dust.


  • Building energy use is reduced through efficient systems, such as high efficiency heating and cooling, domestic hot water heating, demand control ventilation, and use of LED lighting. Within each of the residences many of the appliances meet and exceed the EPA ENERGY STAR program requirements for energy performance.


  • The residential domestic water fixtures including sinks, showers and water closets have been assessed for efficient water use. Storm water runoff is collected and stored to reduce the building’s impact on the city’s sewer system.


  • 1000M’s environmental impact on the surrounding community and region will be minimized through several strategies; such as redirecting construction and building waste away from landfills, selecting many 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.


  • The building’s HVAC and lighting systems will be inspected, functionally verified and reviewed by a third party commissioning agent for system performance and proper installation.


  • Residential units will be heated and cooled by energy efficient water source heat pumps. Residents will individually control each heat pump through programmable thermostats. Heating and cooling will be available 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. All controls will be completely digital technology and include multiple temperature setbacks and allow for on-demand heating and cooling all year long.
  • Air distribution from the heat pumps will be through a ducted supply air system acoustically designed and strategically placed in select units.
  • Living Room areas will include hot water baseboard heating for improved winter comfort and additional energy efficiency in select units. Heating will be controlled automatically by the same thermostat controlling the heat pump.
  • Fresh air will be tempered and distributed directly into each living unit after going through a high efficiency filtration process and dehumidification/humidification treatment.
  • Ranges will include a high capacity multi-speed kitchen exhaust system ducted to the exterior in select units.


  • Residential units will each receive a metered service directly from the utility company, ComEd. Each service will be dependent upon the unit size ranging from 100 to 250 amps. Spare circuits will be available for future modifications.
  • Media services will be prewired from the unit Network Interface Device (NID) to each designated location within the unit. Each Living Room and each Bedroom will receive (2) CAT-6 data cables terminated in a finished wall plate. The NID will have the proper infrastructure for the Internet provider to install a fiber service to each residential unit.
  • Bedrooms, Master Bathrooms and Kitchens feature USB ports.


  • Energy efficiency is increased in this building by exchanging the energy from the exhaust systems to the 100% outdoor air systems. This allows for the continuous introduction of filtered and conditioned outdoor air into the building and the exhaust of unwanted air while minimizing the energy impact.
  • On-demand, heated water is provided with maximum efficiency through a recirculating heat system.
  • High efficiency plumbing fixtures are used to reduce the building’s overall water and sewer use without imposing a noticeable effect on product performance.
  • The heating and cooling systems have been calibrated to perform with the building’s glazing systems optimizing daylight and views without sacrificing comfort or thermal performance.


  • The building will maintain two connections to the city’s water distribution grid to prevent a water main break from interrupting water service to the building.
  • Multiple fire pumps will provide adequate pressure to assure fire protection service throughout the entire building.
  • All units will feature automatic sprinklers, smoke detection and carbon monoxide detection.
  • Emergency Standby Power:
    A diesel fuel emergency generator will provide essential service in a power outage to maintain life safety systems, supervised elevator service, security and telephone equipment.
