JAHN, the Chicago-based firm led by Helmut Jahn and Francisco Gonzalez-Pulido, has unveiled renderings of a long-rumored project in their hometown’s South Loop neighborhood. At 1,030 feet, the tower would be Chicago’s fifth tallest—or, as Curbed Chicago points out, sixth if Studio Gang‘s Wanda Vista project is completed first.
The 86-story JAHN project at 1000 S. Michigan Ave., whose renderings first popped up on the online forum Skyscraper Page, has not been formally presented to the public. According to Crain’s Chicago Business the tower will contain 506 units featuring a mix of condo and rental properties.
In the renderings the building dwarfs an adjacent 20-story residential high-rise with massing that widens as it ascends.
