1000 South Clark is Officially a Thing

1000 South Clark.  Or maybe not.

Two weeks ago we took a bunch of disparate facts, laid them out on a table for you and with Judge Wopner’s certainty declared that the preponderance of the evidence pointed to the existence of a residential tower coming to 1000 South Clark Street.

Now it’s official.

Crain’s Chicago Business has spoken with Jim Letchinger of JDL development and confirmed that he is trying to put up a 469-apartment residential tower on the site, designed by Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, next door to the South Loop Target store.

There are still a few details to be worked out, like financing, but Mr. Letchinger seemed very confident in his quotes to Chicago’s business newspaper of record. He wants to start moving dirt in less than two months and have the place open by the end of next summer.

  1. Fantastic!
    Great to see movement out of the same “hot” areas.
    Let’s continue to push development and repopulate neighborhoods that need it.
