It’s been four years since 1000M, a 74-story luxury condo tower located on Chicago’s South Michigan Avenue, was first announced. But after a recent ceremonial groundbreaking ceremony, the project is finally close to starting construction, according to the project’s developers Time Equities, JK Equities, and Oak Capitals.

The 832-foot-tall, Helmut Jahn-designed building welcomes residents and visitors via a two-story Michigan Avenue lobby that includes a social lounge and art installations. A sun deck on level 11 includes space for outdoor yoga, an aquamarine pool, a fire pit, and a garden. Also on level 11 is the library lounge, which holds a curated collection of classic Chicago literature surrounded by panoramic views from the adjacent terrace. 

 

1000M entrance

 

A sky terrace located more than 800 feet above Michigan Avenue and equipped with telescopes offers views of Grant Park, Lake Michigan, and the surrounding city. Other amenities include the 1000M spa that features a meditation room, plunge pools, a steam room, a beauty bar, and a hydration station; a private dining room on level 72; and a 24/7 fitness room with programmed fitness classes, personal training, and advanced equipment.

1000M penthouses

 

Located on floors three through 19 are the Avenue Residences, which offer views of the park, the lakefront, and the Cultural Mile. Floor 20 features the Terrace Residences, which were designed for a seamless integration of interior and exterior space. Each Terrace Residence has two terraces, one located off the master bedroom and one of the living room. Dubbed the International Collection, floors 41 through 47 are being reserved for micro units that range from 325 sf to 850 sf. The idea was to create highly efficient condominium plans similar to those found in luxury towers throughout Europe, Asia, and Canada. 

 

1000M lobby

 

Floors 22 through 40 and 48 through 69 are the Sky Residences, These units offer the best views of Grant Park, Lake Michigan, and the Chicago skyline. The Sky Residence views are only surpassed by those of the four 5,491-sf penthouses located on floors 70 and 71.

Currently, the plan is for construction to begin soon with a completion date of some time in 2022.
