Another South Loop Residential Tower Opens For Business

A few days ago, CIM Group, based in Los Angeles, made headlines around the world when it splashed out $240 million to buy Chicago’s storied Tribune Tower. In all the noise about the Streeterville purchase, another CIM announcement got lost in the hullabaloo. Specifically, that the new residential tower at 1001 South State Street is now open for business. It was co-developed by CIM Group of Chicago’s Golub & Company,...

It’s a New Skyscraper’s Moment to Shine

It seems like just yesterday we were getting e-mail complaints from people who could no longer park in the surface lot at the corner of Grand and McClurg in Streeterville because it was suddenly (to them) roped off.  Yesterday at 545 North McClurg Court, Moment, the 45-story residential tower that replaced the surface parking lot opened for business. Moment is Golub’s latest residential tower in downtown Chicago, designed by...

Neighbor News: Oak Park’s Newest Skyscraper Now Open

Promising the best of city life, without having to leave the suburbs, Vantage Oak Park is now open in the western suburb.

If that seems like a lot of parking, you’re right. But only 288 are for the...

Another Big Moment Reached as Moment Tops Out, Ditches Crane

Construction is far from over at the combined developments of Moment and Sienna Flats in Streeterville, but with the tower crane having been lowered and sent on to its next assignment, it’s easier to count down the days to completion than to count up the days from groundbreaking. Moment, the residential tower portion of the Golub project, is well over half-glassed. The 45-story tower will deliver 490 luxury apartments to 545...

1001 South State Approaches Glass-Full Status

Long List of Building Permits Signals the Start of Prairie Court

Patience. They say it’s a virtue. Whether or not that’s true, patience is a good quality to have when it comes to development around Chicago. Take this post from January, for example, when we walked to the corner of Prairie Avenue and 18th Street in the South Loop. We had no hunches. No tips from the tip lines. Not even a rumor to go on. But still we went, in the hopes something might be happening on the lot where the...

Slice of Life: 1001 South State. Just Because.

One of our goals here at Chicago Architecture is to help our loyal readers keep up to date on construction progress around Chicago.

Just two weeks ago, we tried to do just that, updating you on progress of Solomon Cordwell Buenz‘s 1001 South State, the 41-story apartment...

1001 State Street, That 1001 Great Street

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,...

Wait a Moment. Do You Know Sienna Flats?

We’ve done our fair share of coverage at Moment, the 42-story, friends-of-the-blog Solomon Cordwell Buenz-designed apartment tower in Streeterville. Chicago-based Golub & Company is delivering 490 luxury rental units to the site at 545 North McClurg Court, along with 5,200 square feet of retail space along the corner of Grand and McClurg. But just a second; there’s more to Moment. At 423 East Ohio Street, Sienna Flats...

Streeterville Tower Gets its Moment in the Sun

The Streeterville skyscraper now known as “Moment” looks like it’s about ready to top out, basking in what sun it can in these early days of winter.  Born as 545 McClurg Court, then renamed 410 East Grand, Moment was designed by friends-of-the-blog, SCB, and is getting dangerously close to its planned height of 42 stories and 452 feet. The photos immediately above and below were sent in by Joe Zekas at YoChicago! who...
