Finally it has started. BTW this is not cooler than the Boston Hancock - that is one the finest postwar towers in the world, the epitome of glassy modernism. I'll put the Park Michigan up there if & when it is built.

^Yep. For those who don't know, a few older buildings previously stood on this site. They were demolished and their facades will be placed onto the Legacy once it's complete.

Those are some nice pics by ChicagoShawn. That's a wierd method they're using for those facades. Anyways, construction appears to be coming along nicely.
