And it's in the front of the city. Great exposure to all.

Just seeing the cladding makes me wish the market/demand would be stronger so this building could be more than a thousand feet tall.

This building was originally planned to be a supertall. NIMBY pushback and feedback from the city led to this being less than 900 ft.

The nod to 60s style facades works better than I expected. Nice to see the inverted V column covered up too. I am getting tired of seeing those.

How absurd.

The developer is the one who decided against there wasn't a Chicago market for a supertall—before it was even shown to anyone. And then took five full years trying to line up financing to build this many units.

The city placed a limit on how tall buildings could be along that stretch of the Michigan Avenue Historic District, you know this, you were at the landmarks meeting, I saw you there.

Here is the testimony South Loop Neighbors offered against the guideline addendum:

Quote:
I’m Dennis McClendon of South Loop Neighbors. We’re the neighborhood association for the area including the south end of the Historic Michigan Boulevard district.

We’re very happy to see these guidelines finally adopted. We’re not very happy with 900-foot buildings.
Quote:
We reject the idea that the last couple of blocks of a historic district needs to act as some kind of transition to the city around it.
Quote:
What’s the danger from approving such tall buildings here? First, there’s the shadowing of Grant Park...
Quote:
What can possibly justify a height limit twice the size of the district’s tallest building?
Quote:
Preserve the scale of this landmark district; reject the 900-foot guideline.
Your own words...



https://chicago.curbed.com/2016/2/4/...toric-district

Quote:
This latest development is certainly consistent with a January 11th rumor that Helmut Jahn's supertall at 1000 S. Michigan was going to be cut from its proposed height of 1001 feet down to something in the mid 800-foot range due to concerns raised by Landmarks. The same rumor was confirmed later that day as an individual representing the globally-renowned architecture firm acknowledged that the design was going back to the drafting table and would ultimately emerge shorter.

That the building was cut from supertall status? We've known that for years.

Would the admins please correct 1000M's height on the Diagrams page? It still says 832 ft there.

BTW, I just realized that this will be the 7th building taller than 800' that Chicago has completed since 2018. That's pretty impressive productivity!
