Chicago Legacy Millennium ParkChicago luxury real estate made amazing strides in 2012, and luxury home buyers have proven their love for The Legacy at Millennium Park here in town. Sales of Chicago luxury real estate rose 15% last year, driving inventory down to its lowest level since before the housing market fell apart.

And The Legacy at Millennium Park can absolutely attest to the surge in sales. Adds James Hanson, principal of Mesa Development LLC who developed The Legacy at Millennium Park, "Finding the home you want has a lot to do with timing. We were all victims of bad timing a few years ago, but today's buyers at the Legacy are finding that their timing is impeccable. In addition to market conditions that make this an ideal time to buy, we still have a variety of available floor plans and views."

Hanson says luxury sales really surged at The Legacy about midway through 2012, and the pace has been steady ever since. The Legacy is a Chicago luxury condo high-rise that is located at 60 East Monroe Street. The 72-story high-rise towers high over Millennium Park and features a variety of luxury condominiums with views of Lake Michigan and downtown Chicago. Here, prospective buyers can choose from a range of floor plans, including one-, two- and three-bedroom residences and five-bedroom penthouses.

Each Chicago luxury condo at The Legacy at Millennium Park features expansive living areas, high ceilings and gourmet-inspired kitchens with granite countertops and Sub-Zero, Wolf and Miele appliances. There are floor-to-ceiling windows that bathe each unit in natural light and offer the sweeping views mentioned above. And the upscale finishes include hardwood floors, marble-tiled baths, and Snaidero, Wood-Mode or Brookhaven cabinetry.

Building amenities include a heated indoor lap pool, sparkling whirlpool spa, state-of-the-art fitness center, 24-hour doorman, valet dry cleaning and package receiving, and two community rooms with adjoining outdoor sky gardens. What’s more, a skybridge connects The Legacy to a neighboring club giving resident club members direct access to all of the club's facilities.

But it’s location, location, location when it comes to Chicago luxury real estate, and The Legacy’s location along the cultural mile along Michigan Avenue is one of the best in town. There’s world-class shopping, dining, theater, art and recreational opportunities right outside the front door, so it’s no wonder their sales pace has been so fast and furious.
