SoMi ApartmentsThe glassy new tower proposed for 1326 S. Michigan has officially received the “okay” from the city to begin construction, according to a new report out from Curbed Chicago that also outlines only the foundation permits have been issued to this point. 

One of several major developments that will no doubt change the landscape of Chicago’s South Loop in the coming years, 1326 S. Michigan will rise 47 stories once finished and add 500 more apartments to Chicago’s rapidly expanding inventory of downtown rentals. 

Dubbed “SoMi”—at least for now—1326 S. Michigan was designed by Chicago-based Solomon Cordwell Buenz and will also include brand new retail space along Michigan Avenue, as well as parking for 190 vehicles. 

 Local developer Murphy Development has teamed up with LA-based CIM Group to build 1326 S. Michigan, which is also the same California firm behind Marquee at Block 37, another upcoming apartment project at 1000 S. State, and also the new owners of Chicago’s famed Tribune Tower.
