A first look at the Kara Mann-designed interiors for 1000M

Construction on the upscale Michigan Avenue tower is expected to begin next year

While the anticipated construction start for 1000M is still several months out, the team behind the high-profile tower project for the South Loop has just offered us a first look at the interior finishes for the sleek glassy tower on Michigan Avenue. In June, the tower’s development partners Time Equities, JK Equities, and Oak Capitals announced that Kara Mann had been selected to lead the interior design for the tower. New renderings highlighting the interior finishes for a residence offer a first impression of Mann’s vision for the tower project.


The yet-to-be-built 74-story South Loop skyscraper has been marketing its 323 units for the last several months via morsels of new information and images of the tower. And while we have become quite familiar with Helmut Jahn’s evolving design for the curving 832-foot building, the interiors have been under wraps until now.

The planned construction start in 2018 means that 1000M will face stiff competition in the high-end market, as construction continues on the other upscale for-sale residential projects like the Vista Tower in Lake Shore East and Related Midwest’s One Bennett Park tower in Streeterville. However, the capping of Grant Park with designs from Helmut Jahn and Rafael Viñoly will certainly add some new star power to Chicago’s skyline.
