McHugh Concrete has poured concrete for eight of Chicago's 10 tallest concrete buildings

Nine-Hour Concrete Pour Precedes Going Vertical on 1000M Resi Project

McHugh Concrete has completed a nine-hour continuous concrete pour including nearly 4,000 cubic yards of concrete for the mat slab foundation for 1000M, a 73-story luxury apartment tower at 1000 S. Michigan Ave. in Chicago’s South Loop. 1000M is co-developed by Time Equities, Inc., JK Equities and Oak Capitals. 

This major construction milestone completes the foundations under the main tower of 1000M, which will be one of the city’s tallest apartment buildings at 788 feet when it delivers in 2025. McHugh Concrete has poured the concrete for eight of Chicago’s 10 tallest concrete buildings. 

“A mat slab pour is always a celebratory day because we can see the project really start to come together, and now we can start to go vertical,” said Rob Muzenjak, concrete superintendent at 1000M for McHugh Concrete. McHugh Construction is general contractor on the project, which was designed by the late Helmut Jahn.
