Construction at 74-Story 1000M Condo Tower Appears to Restart

We just read on that some work is happening at 1000M:
One thing seems to be leading to another again at 1000M, the 74-story residential skyscraper coming to Chicago’s South Loop. Work on the Helmut Jahn-designed condominium tower was stopped in early June.

At the time, 1000M’s public relations company stated it was because construction workers couldn’t maintain a proper social distance during the COVID-19 pandemic while working on the foundation. A month later, it was widely reported that banking giant Goldman Sachs turned off the money faucet for this $470 million project. The Chicago Tribune reported that the skyscraper was on hold “at least until September.”

Now it seems that work is underway once again, as you can see in this photograph from YoChicago!, taken from the roof deck of 1000 South Clark this afternoon.

There are about a half-dozen construction workers visible in the picture, and compared to the shut down picture we showed you in July, some dirt has been dug, some equipment has been moved, and there’s some new heavy equipment on site that wasn’t there before, including an excavator.

 The will it or won't it back and forth for this high-profile building is exhausting.  Best of luck to them...but they have a long way to go!
