Sometimes I struggle with selecting images to post on the blog because there are too many great ones. This project definitely falls into that category. This is 1001 South State in Chicago Illinois. It's currently the newest high-rise to grace the already amazing Chicago skyline. 1001 is a 40 story residential tower designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz and constructed by Walsh Construction.
This Apartment building has it all, from swimming pools and work out facilities to a bike repair room and a dog run. There are expansive greenspaces on the 5th floor as well as pool and grill areas. This glass-clad building is full of curves and angles giving countless viewing variety to the residents. It seemed like every space we photographed had a completely different view of the Chicago Skyline or Lake Michigan.
It's located in the South Loop which is one of Chicago's fastest growing neighborhoods and also includes 7,800 square foot of street level retail space. The building is breathtaking and can been seen from virtually all angles throughout the south loop.
The image above is an example of a two bedroom apartment facing south west with fantastic views of Lake Michigan.
