Status Update: The Legacy at Millennium Park

If the Waterview Tower ever gets completed, I'd like to think that this is what it would look like.  The Legacy at Millennium Park spent a couple of years trying to restore and preserve some pretty nasty retail storefronts.  Now that it's free to rise upward, it is; and at quite a pace.

There are three reasons I like this building:

  1. It echoes the art deco-era towers that sit in front of it along Michigan Avenue
  2. It helped with the massive clean-up of Wabash Street that's turned it from a scary alley into the beginnings of a neighborhood.
  3. It blocked my old bosses view from her condo.  Suck it, Diana.
