It’s been about 4 years since plans for the Helmut Jahn designed condo tower at 1000 S. Michigan were introduced publicly, but after a long wait and a few bumps in the road, reports are out that construction is finally set to begin on Chicago's newest luxury high-rise next week.
Both Curbed and the Chicago Tribune are reporting that an official groundbreaking ceremony will happen on October 24th, and the event has been confirmed by the project’s developers.
When finished, the tower, called 1000M, will stand 74 stories high (896 feet) and have a major impact on the city’s lakefront skyline. The building will also have 40,000 square feet of amenities, including a pool deck, fitness center, music conservatory, and a Himalayan salt therapy room.
If all goes according to schedule, first move-ins at 1000M should be scheduled for 24 to 28 months after construction begins, which means late 2021 or early 2022.
