Only Legacy's penthouses lack windows, while One Museum Park West keeps on rising

Legacy at Millennium Park, 60 E Monroe St, Chicago One Museum Park West, 1201 S Prairie Ave, Chicago

Printers Row is a good location from which to view the progress of two of the only high-rises still under construction around downtown’s lakeside parks. From the rooftop deck of the Amli 900 apartment high-rise, we had a clear view of both The Legacy at Millennium Park (left) and One Museum Park West (right), both of which look a little different every time we see them.

The Legacy, located at 60 E Monroe St in the Loop, doesn’t have a lot of change left in it. We should have a good view of the finished product (from the outside, at least) within the next few weeks, as crews wrap the last two stories in sliver-blue glass. After that, it’s only a matter of time before homes start to close in the 72-story tower — deliveries are set to begin in late summer or early fall.

One-bedrooms at The Legacy are priced from the $480s to the $610s, two-bedrooms start in the $640s and go all the way up to almost $1.6 million, and three-bedrooms are priced from $1.15 to $4.25 million.

As I noted just a couple of weeks ago, One Museum Park West, 1201 S Prairie Ave, should be nearing its peak any day now. From Amli 900, it appears that the tower has nearly reached the height of The Columbian, its 46-story, orange-bricked neighbor to the west.

Among the more than 80 condos still for sale in the 298-unit tower are two-bedroom / two-baths priced from the $530s to $1.24 million, three-bedroom / two-baths priced from $1.06 to $1.31 million, and three-bedroom / three-baths priced from $1.6 to $2.14 million. Deliveries are slated to begin in early 2010.
