The South Loop is poised to transform considerably in the coming years if all of the major tower projects proposed this year end up making it into the sky. However, for the time being, the neighborhood has a steady stream of construction projects keeping things interesting. Apartments are still dominating the South Loop (and most of the downtown area), however, there are some new condos in the pipeline. Here's a quick look at three of the South Loop's newest tower projects.
1001 South State
This SCB-designed apartment tower from Golub & Company has been in the works for the last several years but is quickly climbing into the sky. Permits were lined up in October of 2014, and now the we're able to get an idea of how this tower will look when it is topped out. When completed, the 40-story tower will bring 397 new apartments to the area.
1000 S Clark
This glassy highrise from JDL Development has also been under construction for some time now and has an exterior that virtually complete. Designed by Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, this 29-story tower is delivering 469 new rentals to the area.
Developer CMK Companies has had a very year this year and will continue to remain quite busy heading into 2016. Having wrapped up major construction on its 1345 Wabash condo project, the developer continues working on a new project next door.
