I meant more that there has never been a residential real estate price reduction. For example, homes on the North Shore have never lost ground unlike the luxury properties on either coast. Growth has been a constant....even if the increments are small some years.

Wow. That seems like a pretty low number. I don't think I'd get worried about a slowdown until that number starts to look 65 or 70. I guess that could happen overnight, though.

In terms of a slowdown in residential, I'll believe it when I see it. (not that you have made any such claims, Dan)

Well, dont know if it's good news to you but its a little good news for me but Emporis says this project has been approved as opposed to proposed. Or at least its shaded in as approved. Any way we can confirm this?

There is a nice ad for this bldg in Friday's WSJ (weekend section) with kind of a cool picture of it in the skyline. I like how it could look.

I have no scanner - does anybody have the Fri. WSJ and a scanner? Sorry.

I love this building as well...It reminds me of a slightly taller version of the hanckock tower in Boston...I feel very confident about this one going up because city hall is really backing this project

^ nah, 55 east monroe is a fine building, 311 south wacker is far more devastating to the skyline.

but either way, the legacy is a fine looking tower, she's on my top 5 most anticipated list.

Anderson was based in 55 West Monroe. I am going to agree with steely on this one, 55 East Monroe is a fine building that really makes for a good backdrop to the classical Michicigan Avenue Streetwall. Although I can't agree with you on 311 Dan, I just have a strong quarky fondness for the pink bitch.

^ This shows how diversed our taste for buildings is. I also like 311 S. Wacker and don't care much for 55 E. Monroe, but I really dig the Legacy at MP.

I have to agree with you Chicago3rd. 55 EM is far and away my least favorite building over 500ft in Chicago. It is just too bulky and classless and blocks the view of too many far superior buildings. And while not perfect I do like 311 SW. However LMP is far better than any of them and will be an asset to our skyline.

55 E Monroe looks like a big tombstone from Grant Park on Chicago's skyline. There is talk of converting the building to residential and altering its apprearance somehow. I can't imagine, but I'll reserve judgment until I can see some renderings. It is a classic....classically ugly.

Anyhow, is anything positive happening with the Legacy?

^ I think the residential conversion is going to make it worse. Much worse. There's talk of adding BALCONIES.
