1000M Highlights

Design Vision

1000M was designed by the late, luminary German architect Helmut Jahn and his company, Jahn/, which remains the architectural firm of record for the development. Jahn’s Managing Director Philip Castillo noted, “The building’s unique shape has produced fresh, innovative floorplates that are transformed into apartments with a refined touch. 1000M gradually widens at the northeast and southwest corners, allowing its floorplate to transition from an efficient rectangle at the base to an expansive parallelogram at the top, giving even the southwestern units prime views of Lake Michigan and Grant Park.”

Renowned Chicago-based interior designer, Kara Mann, designed the apartment and amenity area interiors. “Our goal was to infuse our expertise in luxury home interior design, into a building with scale, ensuring residents felt a sense of warmth and belonging throughout all areas of the building.” stated Savanna Linneman, Designer of Interiors at Kara Mann.

80,000 sq ft of Amenities

1000M Features the largest amenity package in the city. 80,000 sq ft of luxe community spaces span 8 levels, including the highest residential observation deck in the city located on level 73. Residents can enjoy lively social spaces and relaxing lounges. Both an indoor lap pool and a heated 3-season pool and deck allow for year-round swimming. Two floors of high-end fitness and wellness facilities rival many gyms, and an entire 10,000 sq ft floor of dedicated co-working facilities. “Everything you need is at the ready,” said Wessely.

Thoughtful Designer Apartments

Apartments at 1000M range from studios to 4-bedroom penthouses. And all residences feature the same Kara Mann-appointed luxury furnishings no matter the apartment or floor. “We’ve optimized every square inch of these plans,” stated Singer. “There’s lots of closet space with high-end custom shelving units, sleek kitchens with cabinet front appliances, and jaw-dropping views.”
