curbed is reporting that construction has officially begun!

Construction begins on Helmut Jahn’s 74-story tower that will alter the skyline
1000M is happening

By Jay Koziarz Updated Dec 2, 2019, 1:43pm CST


Chicago’s current tally of 33 high-rise buildings under construction can add another large project to the mix as crews officially break ground on the 74-story, Helmut Jahn-designed skyscraper known as 1000M.

Although co-developers Time Equities, JK Equities, and Oak Capitals hosted a groundbreaking ceremony in October, work at 1000 S. Michigan Avenue didn’t start in earnest until the last weekend of November—after the project landed its first building permit.

Seeing foundation rigs move dirt should go a long way to alleviate doubts about the project, voiced by publications such as Crain’s. Concerns included questions about the market supporting high-end condos at this location as well as doubts if the slow-to-start project would get off the ground amid concerns of a possible economic downturn.

Awesome, one more 800+ footer for Chicago, assuming there won't be any unpleasant surprise in the next couple years.

it's a little hard to believe 1000M is really going U/C after more than four years of waiting.

when i first joined this forum 20 years ago, most of the towers pictured below didn't exist.

what a transformation! this view all on its own would be a MAJOR skyline in 90% of the US.

Financing has been secured from Goldman Sachs and reported on last week. I wouldn't be surprised if this topped out in two years and forumers were still doubtful.

SD- That photo is missing The Paragon. Three completed high-rises so far. Maybe five if NEMA2 gets built.
