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.

Need more particulars? Certainly:

  • 41 stories
  • 440 feet tall
  • 397 units
  • 248 parking spaces on 3 semi-enclosed levels
  • 7,800 sq ft of retail space
  • 5th floor sundeck with outdoor pool
  • Green roof and LEED certification
  • Developer – Golub & Company with CIM Group
  • Design – Solomon Cordwell Buenz
  • General Contractor – Walsh Construction
