Foundation work is now underway for a 30-story mixed-use high rise at 1400 S Wabash Avenue in South Loop. The developer CMK Companies plans for 299 total units atop ground-level retail. Replacing a long-vacant lot, the 316-foot-tall structure is poised to contribute to South Loop’s expanding high rise cluster.
The full building permit has finally been issued for 1000 S Michigan Avenue. As previously reported, the building will be a 73-story residential development, known affectionately as ‘1000M‘, and is being developed by Time Equities and JK Equities in South Loop. The building itself was designed by the late Helmut Jahn and plans indicate 738 total dwelling units, along with 320 on-site parking spaces. The units will be split into four tiers of design and will vary in size and amenities as the floors ascend. Future residents will have access to nearly 75,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space.

Resuming into the fourth spot of the 2021 Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown is 1000 S Michigan Avenue otherwise known as 1000M in the South Loop.

Developers Time Equities and JK Equities partnered on the skyscraper which recently secured financing to resume construction after stopping work early in the pandemic.
