Great shots, BVictor!

Legacy definitely would bring back life on Wabash St and Monroe St.

Those last two are superb. I didn't imagine the eastern side looking like that.

Can anyone tell me what floor of the Legacy I would have to be on in order to have an unobstructed view south over the 55 E. Monroe Bldg? Thanks.

Well, 55 E. Monroe is 582' and 50 stories. So maybe at about the 55th floor of the Legacy you'd clear 55 E. Monroe.

^ nope, the new drawing on SSP reflects the same design, just from a different angle. the image you're used to is the grant park facade, but the western facade (the one shown in the new SSP diagram) is quite a bit different, as you can see.

Just a preview. The base is unfinished and therefore conveniently out of sight.

And shame on you people for letting this slide to page 3.

I really hope so. This is one of my favorite proposals for the city. I love this building.

Well the website that used to be heritagecondos.com (the old Heritage at Millennium Park) site now redirects to a site for the Legacy. Given the way the Heritage sold, I would bet that this one won't have any trouble becoming reality.

Just a reminder about the Legacy:

Here's a nice rendering of how the Legacy will fit into the skyline as seen from east of Millenium Park

Is this the beginning? This scaffolding was spotted going up tonight where the Legacy is supposed to rise. All the stores along this stretch of Wabash have slowly but surely vacated their spaces.

How does the caisson-drilling and foundation work occur with these projects? Unlike many projects, which started from a parking lot or demolished an existing building, this one will preserve the Wabash facades. Do they simply put up scaffolding along the facades, and then carefully demolish the rest of the buildings? Then they are effectively left with an empty lot with "facade walls" in which to start building?

I assume it will be done in the same method as Heritage, but I didn't really follow Heritage's construction until the final months.

You're spot-on. They will brace the facades of the buildings that are being preserved, then demolish everything behind them and excavate/build as usual.
