From Crains:
Helmut Jahn designing 86-story South Loop residential tower
By Dennis Rodkin
September 24, 2015

Architect Helmut Jahn is designing an 86-story South Loop residential tower that would resemble a stack of four tall boxes, with the widest at the top.

The glassy tower proposed for 1000 S. Michigan Ave. would contain 506 residential units and parking for 598 cars, according to plans that appeared on the city clerk's website late yesterday in advance of today's meeting of the Committee on Zoning, Landmarks and Building Standards.

The proposal surfaces less than two days after Miami-based developer Crescent Heights rolled out its plans for a pair of buildings topping out at 76 stories high a little more than a block south, on the southeast corner of Roosevelt Road and Michigan Avenue. That plan, too has a “starchitect”: Rafael Viñoly.

Together, the Jahn and Viñoly projects would raise the profile of the South Loop, where the tallest building now is the 62-story One Museum Park, completed in 2009.
