Chicago-based JDL Development recently celebrated the grand opening of 1000 South Clark, a new 469-unit luxury apartment tower in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood and a joint venture between JDL Development and New York-based iStar.
The 29-story building hosted a reception where approximately 300 guests were invited to tour the studio and one-bedroom models – designed by Crate & Barrel, West Elm, Room & Board and Interior Define – along with more than 43,000 square feet of amenities.
“We are so pleased to officially open our doors and showcase all that 1000 South Clark has to offer residents,” said Yale Dieckmann, executive vice president and chief investment officer at JDL Development. “It was our goal with this project to set a new standard for luxury apartment living, and I’m happy to say we’ve exceeded even our own high expectations.”
Guests at the grand opening were treated to hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, music by DJ Rock City, and a photo booth. Those who visited all five amenity floors were entered into a drawing for a $500 gift card from Chicago-based custom sofa maker Interior Define.
Currently 60 percent leased, 1000 South Clark includes studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units ranging from 512 to 2,730 square feet. The community features six three-bedroom rental townhomes, each with 3.5 baths and attached two-car garages. Townhomes average 2,635 square feet.
In total, it offers 43,000 square feet of amenity space, including a 20,000-square-foot outdoor terrace with grilling stations, an indoor/outdoor pool and rooftop running track; a 10,000-square-foot state-of-the-art fitness center; basketball and racquetball courts; and a virtual golf simulator and putting area.
The community features multiple gathering areas, including a penthouse roof deck, library lounge and wine bar, chef’s demonstration kitchen, game room and billiards lounge, neighborhood bar room with customizable beer taps, news room and media lounge, and board room and business center. The building also has an automated package retrieval system and on-site valet dry cleaning. A four-story garage attached to the west facade of the tower will provide parking for 327 vehicles.
The community also offers residents the latest in pet amenities with a landscaped outdoor dog park and Bark on Clark, a full-service, privately run pet care and boarding facility operated in partnership with Sit! Pet Care – the first of its kind in any residential building in Chicago.
