Has anyone seen the plans for the building renovation to the left in the photo? The one they are taking out the exterior wall? Will the entire building be done?

This project did a wonderful thing integrating itself in the existing footprint of the area. You can pass the building on Wabash without noticing it is there, while at the same time being a nice addition to the Chicago skyline seen from the park. One of the best projects at this moment in my opinion.

It looks like they've finished at least 1 of the 3 mechanical penthouse floors, so almost topped out.

One floor left to go

That's what we were told by Legacy's sales director, who also reported the project is about o87% sold and on track for move-ins starting in September. See more info and a current pic at YoChicago.
