Final cladding is wrapping up for a new 30-story apartment building at 1400 S Wabash Avenue in South Loop. CMK Companies, the developer behind the project, has announced that the tower has reached its full height of 350 feet, bringing 350 new residences to the area.
The tower offers a range from one- to three-bedroom apartments, with select units featuring private terraces located on the podium. Eight of the apartments will be designated as affordable housing and located on premises, while another 22 units will be subsidized off site. Residents will enjoy a host of amenities, including a top-floor lounge and an open-air rooftop terrace, providing extensive views of the city skyline.

Designed by Pappageorge Haymes, the building’s facade is made up of interlocking rectangles that are outlined with metal paneling. These rectangular components either jut out or recede from view, adding contrast and texture to the exterior pattern.
For those who drive, the development offers 105 parking spots on site, as well as 180 spaces in an integrated bike room. Access to the project site is just a short walk from bus service for Routes 1, 3, 4, 12, 29, and 62 as well as the Roosevelt station for the Red, Green, and Orange Lines of CTA.
The construction of the 1400 S Wabash Avenue tower is expected to be completed by this coming spring, with Lendlease serving as the general contractor and Pepper Construction as the concrete contractor.
