The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the revised design for 1000M, a planned residential skyscraper at 1000 S Michigan Avenue in South Loop. Fronting S Michigan Avenue, the project site is an infill site between E 9th Street and E 11 Street. Currently a stalled construction site, the development already has caissons in the ground. Time Equities and JK Equities are the developers behind the project.
Caisson work has kicked off for The Reed, a 41-story residential tower along the river in South Loop. Situated at 234 W Polk Street, the 447-foot-tall structure serves as the second phase of a larger five-building development by Lendlease known as Southbank. This masterplan was formerly occupied by a large grass parcel that had long been vacant. Underneath this land were a series of freight tunnels that have undergone a sealing process over the past few months, thereby allowing The Reed to proceed.
Photos show fencing and equipment in preparation for a new residential tower at 234 W Polk Street in South Loop. Known as The Reed, the tower will mark the next stage of a larger megadevelopment called Southbank. While the current prep work for The Reed is taking place further north from where its actual footprint will be, the work is still a critical first step for the development’s construction. Permits posted on-site show that Lendlease is sealing off old freight tunnels that run underneath the Southbank property, thereby allowing for foundation work to proceed on the tower site.
Renderings have been revealed of the updated design for 1000M, a residential tower located at 1000 S Michigan Avenue in South Loop. Located on an empty lot, the site fronts S Michigan Avenue midblock between E 9th Street and E 11th Street. Time Equities and JK Equities are the developers behind the project.
A zoning application was filed late last month with a revised design for the stalled 1000M skyscraper, located at 1000 S Michigan Avenue in South Loop.
