Construction Update
1001 State Street, That 1001 Great Street

1001 South State

At least until the Michigan Avenue streetwall gets filled in, you’ll have a nice view of 1001 South State from Grant Park.

1001 South State, so named for its relative proximity to 1001 South State Street, continues to climb in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood. It’s been a favorite to watch for the colorful lines and pretty yellow crane. Throw in some wicked awesome glass on the curvy southern exposure, and we challenge you to walk by on a sunny day without stopping for a photo opp.

In case you’ve forgotten the deets, they follow here, along with some pictures of construction progress. Look for 1001 South State to start moving in renters before the end of the year.
