One more vacant lot in the South Loop may soon become history, but it may be replaced by a building designed by star architect Helmut Jahn. According to Crain's, the noted architect is believed to be working on a new tower project for 1000 S. Michigan Avenue. It's still not yet clear whether the tower will feature condos or rentals, but the new residential tower will join a slew of other new projects that are well on their way to the neighborhood. Jahn has left his touch in many areas across Chicago, from the Thompson Center in the heart of the Loop to the new Joe and Rika Mansueto Library at the University of Chicago in Hyde Park, however having a new Jahn-designed tower in the South Loop could be a huge boost the area's architectural profile.
