YoChicago’s Joseph Askins reports in Construction Checkup: Legacy at Millennium Park on construction progress at Mesa Development’s Chicago residential condominium project known The Legacy at Millennium Park.
I confess I’m biased. I worked on contracts for this project with architect Solomon Cordwell Buenz and prime contractor Walsh Construction. Regardless of my own partisanship, or problems that may crop up in the Legacy’s design or construction, this building adds a superlative aesthetic complement to the Chicago skyline. Go see the photos and see for yourself. Better yet, watch this slideshow of construction through the end of September 2009….
And if you’re in Chicago at sunset, stop and gaze at how the sun and other edifices of the South Loop’s skyline reflect off the the Legacy’s mirror-like glass curtain wall. You might find yourself agreeing with me that it’s one of the most captivating views in the city.
