Good to hear that there still working on it behind the scenes

Does anyone have any idea when they could restart construction?

On their glazier side, they do mostly window wall work using OldcastleBE framing systems.

So, it sounds like this is still moving along behind the scenes. BV Glazing out of Canada is providing the unitized curtain wall frames for this project and my assumption is McHugh bought them direct and hired CK2 to install.
Looks VERY similar to 50 West St's curtain wall in NY... not surprising. I can't see if BV did 50 West St too, but it wouldn't surprise me if Jahn replicated a successful detail and manufacturer from another project.

The only difference is that some of the spandrels have horizontal fluting like the side of an L car, and they do appear to be stainless steel rather than aluminum, again like an L car. I dunno if that's what Jahn was going for, but it looks like the fluted panels will be used on the back of building facing Wabash and the L tracks, so He seems to like that material on a few of his more recent Chicago projects (IIT dorms, Mercy Lakefront SRO, etc).

Sorry I totally missed the last post of last page, mockup looks really cool.

Right, this building and that one are basically cousins. I'm a big fan of 50 WS, dig the blue color of this one though.

Yeah, I like this one (Chicago's) more. Quite a bit more, actually. If the two were brothers, I'd say 1000 is the bigger brother. Or at least the more talented one, haha.

Looking forward to this one getting built more than any other outside maybe One Chicago (if/when) It's going to look amazing on that area of G park. Very modern and classy, imo.

Imagine if the second NEMA tower got built, this area alone would have the skyline of a normal city.

I didn't expect to like the facade that much, nice. Hoping the glass in the mock up is what they use in the real tower. But looking at how 50 west turned out I have high hopes for the final product. I have far lower hopes for the actual completion of this project still though. Different from any other 800 footer in the city which IMO is a plus.

I'm still a skeptic on this project, but I would be happy to be proven wrong.

I think 1000M's design is superior to 50 West.

Very impressive, and has the top of 1000m been revised or is the picture just a better visual than what we have seen previously. Hoping for the best for this project, as it is one of my most favorite projects for downtown Chicago.

Still, looks like no curved glass on this one...cheapens an otherwise promising facade.

Agreed, first time I'm seeing that, does look pretty cheap. The mockup is a better indicator though and still looks pretty good.
