You were correct. The sales center opens the the public on this date which is the same day that One Museum Park west officially begins to market. The sneak preview for perspective buyers is tomorrow though.

Well, I just came from the Legacy sales center, and I must say tha business was booming. There was quite a crowd, and quite a few people putting down reservation deposits. I'd say that at least 200 of the units were reserved. They had a touch screen to see what units were available, and sales agents were passing around updates stats of what units were available to one another.

I was told that they hope to reach their quota of 50% by June, and this means actual signed contracts. 95% of the people that I saw today in the sales center were empty nesters. I saw only 2 or 3 younger people with minor kids there.

I did take some photos of the model, and I will post those tomorrow after I edit them.

It was also mentioned to me that there is another tower in the works that will be somewhere in the east loop. More information won't be available until next year, but to put it lightly, it will probably be taller then the Legacy

That's all for now.

it's great to hear that the saes center was so busy.

and that bit about an even taller east loop residential in the near future is quite intriguing. the spin-off success of millennium park continues to snow-ball.

New renderings




A soaring beauty.

I love that second photo especially. You can see how far in terms of design we've come along these past few years with Millennium Park, the Heritage, 1 South Dearborn, and now the Legacy.

This really is an awesome building. I hope it sells fast, like has been reported so far, and starts construction this spring.

^ Great news from one of my favorite new projects in the city.

Usually I prefer younger, more "hip" people in the city, but I actually like the idea that a lot of older, more established buyers will likely purchase units in this building. The Loop proper, other than the daytime office workers who whisk back to their suburban homes, needs a more established population of money-spenders beyond just the large pool of students that it has. This may eventually help developments such as Block 37 and others eventually pan out, and allow State Street to finally re-emerge as the preeminent retail strip that it once was.

My guess where the new tower will be is the parking garage at the corner of Wabash & Randolph St, where there is a Popeyes Chicken & luggage store. Its only a two - three story structure and if it is designed right will have amazing views of MP & the Lake. It would basically go right in between the Heritage and the Smurift Stone building.

I'm anxious to see the pics of the models. Maybe we'll get to see the actual shape of the building. All the renderings make it appear rectangular, but the floor plans show more of a pie shape with its nose cut off (so to speak).

I have to agree that this project will happen. A plus is that almost all the business' that existed on the Wabash part have lost their lease due to this.

You mustve been setting it up while I was posting. Thanks. Is it me or does this building model look chunky? Granted we havent seen these angles of it but still... Maybe my eyes arent looking at it correctly. Im not sure I like it as much anymore. I guess I still do. I dont know. Shit. Maybe I do. Yeah I like it. I think. Whatever...
