VISION

On the tenth block of South Michigan Avenue, directly across from Grant Park and steps from Lake Michigan, sits one of the last undeveloped parcels of land in the Historic Michigan Boulevard District.  It has taken the extraordinary vision of a Chicago-savvy, development team — comprised of Time Equities, JK Equities, and Oak Capitals — to envision a remarkable future for the site. Through a multi-year process of bold planning and a relentless passion for leading-edge architecture, a spectacular new residential Grant Park condo skyscraper takes its place among cultural masterpieces and natural wonders.

ARCHITECTURE

JAHN, led by internationally-renowned architect, Helmut Jahn, has designed the 832-foot residential skyscraper. Jahn’s design for 1000M is inspired by the site’s position at the intersection of nature and city. 1000M gradually widens at the northeast and southwest corners, allowing its floor plate to transition from an efficient rectangle at the base to an expansive parallelogram at the top, giving even the southwestern units prime views of Lake Michigan and Grant Park.

INTERIOR DESIGN

KARA MANN, led by acclaimed designer and Chicago native, Kara Mann, has created the interior layouts and finish selections for the 1000M residences, as well as the amenity spaces and public areas. Mann is known for creating environments that draw from her background in fashion, art and design by reimagining the possibilities of spatial design. Her designs for interior spaces interpret the sophisticated vernacular of the building by imbuing them with an intimate feeling.
