Mesa Development Introduces World-Class Amenities At The Legacy At Millennium Park

When it comes to amenities in today’s new-construction condominium buildings, what was once an extravagance has become de rigueur. So in order to offer a truly unique experience at the Legacy at Millennium Park in downtown Chicago, the building’s developers created a distinctive roster of amenities to complement residences, many of which top the million-dollar mark.

“With the Legacy, our intention is to deliver not just a home but a lifestyle. And thanks to the building’s location, design and other factors, we’ve had the opportunity to incorporate some unique amenities that help achieve that goal while providing residents with a one-of-a-kind experience,” said James Hanson of Mesa Development LLC.

Located at 60 E. Monroe St. in Chicago’s Loop, The Legacy is a 72-story luxury high-rise overlooking Millennium Park, Grant Park and Lake Michigan. Two- and three-bedroom luxury condominiums in Chicago at the Legacy are priced from $620,000 to $2.225 million, and one remaining penthouse is priced at $3.6 million.

One of the most unique amenities at The Legacy is its connection (literally) to the University Club of Chicago*. The building is linked to the century-old landmarked club via a skybridge more than 100 feet above street level, giving residents who are club members direct access to luxurious facilities and services, including multiple restaurants and event spaces, sports facilities and a private hotel.

Meanwhile Legacy homeowners who are not members of the University Club can still enjoy certain club amenities, including catering services, tournament quality squash courts and access to hotel rooms for visiting guests.

“Beyond the first-class facilities, the historic, cultural and social benefits of the University Club are very unique. To have that just an elevator ride away is something you won’t find in any other condominium building in the city,” said Hanson.

For homeowners who enjoy entertaining, The Legacy has two hospitality rooms on the 42nd and 60th floors with large gathering spaces, comfortable seating and full kitchens. Adjoining each hospitality room is an outdoor sky-garden terrace featuring stunning views of the city, parks and lake. A 15th floor sundeck provides a third outdoor space for residents to enjoy.

“The ability to host a large outdoor gathering more than 400 or 600 feet above the city, or to just come up and enjoy the fireworks on a Wednesday night, is another singular experience for Legacy homeowners,” said Michael Golden, co-founder of @properties, the exclusive sales and marketing firm for The Legacy at Millennium Park.

Like many high-rises, the Legacy also features a heated indoor pool, whirlpool spa and professionally equipped fitness center. However, unlike many buildings, these areas overlook Millennium Park and Lake Michigan, so homeowners can look out onto the bustling landscape as they exercise or relax.

Legacy residents also benefit from an enhanced level of security and service, thanks to a number of convenience-style amenities, including package receiving and valet dry cleaning services; a full-time on-site manager, and two doormen on staff during peak hours. The lobby has a fireplace, comfortable seating, and a rotating art exhibit featuring works by students from the neighboring School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

“Luxury has every bit as much to do with service as finishes and facilities,” said Hanson. “Our goal is to create a community with enduring value, and that’s something we’ve achieved with exceptional services and amenities.”
