I just love the colour of the glass! It makes a perfect contrast to the classic buildings.

Fine that there's such a tall and elegant skyscraper right west of Grant Park now.

And btw. - I just got aware of the recladding on Mid-Continental Plaza (to the left on BVictor1's recent pics) that has started in 2008... seems like this building is supposed to lose its early-70s-look.

edit: Emporis tells about conversion to condos of upper 15 stories ("The Park Monroe"), including balconies. That could possibly yield a strange hybrid next to the Legacy.

it looks that way because there's nothing around it to compare its height too

Yes, with only about 2 storeys do go, the Legacy outclasses the closer neighborhood by far... the tower must have over 240m now.

It's so dang skinny, but it looks incredible. And yes, it kind of does look like a supertall from some angles.

I worked on this building a few others on this site. I am a tech engineer for Walsh construction. I pretty much layout the building. It was a great building, I left around the 65th floor. They topped off last week iirc, wish I could have been there. I could prob get some pics from the top deck/roof once i get them.
