To appreciate the beauty of good architecture, one need simply to admire the built world around us. But what about the partially-built world?
At The Chicago Architecture Blog, we know good art when we see it. And what we see going up at 1001 South State Street is a feast for the eyes. The 41-story residential project in the South Loop from friends-of-the-blog Solomon Cordwell Buenz is well underway, and we were fortunate enough to choose a perfectly sunny day to pay a visit.
We’ll be sad when the pretty yellow crane is gone, but in its place will be 397 apartments, including studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. Completion is expected in 2016.
