Most people agree that it will be a number of years before the next luxury condominium tower is built in downtown Chicago. And that means it’s going to be a long time before a collection of amenities can rival those available to luxury homebuyers at The Legacy at Millennium Park.
The Legacy, which offers one- to three-bedroom condominiums and a couple of remaining penthouses, includes one of the most luxurious and unique assortments of common-area amenities of any building in Chicago. Residents at the Legacy experience the ultimate luxury lifestyle without ever having to step outside the building.
Like many luxury buildings, the Legacy features an indoor swimming pool. However, unlike most buildings, this pool has incredible views of Millennium Park and Lake Michigan. Low voltage lighting illuminates the pool from above with a rotating palette of colors. And the pool area also features a large whirlpool spa overlooking the park, as well as men’s and women’s locker rooms with steam rooms. Next door to the pool is the Legacy’s health-club-quality fitness center featuring cardio equipment, weight machines and dumbbells. Residents can hire a personal trainer to train them in the building.
For homeowners who like to entertain, two hospitality rooms on the 42nd and 60th floors, offer large gathering spaces, comfortable seating and full kitchens. Adjoining these two areas are expansive sky-garden terraces with breathtaking views of the lake, park and city. There is also a landscaped sundeck on the 15th floor with outdoor furniture including chaise lounges and oversized chairs.
Homeowners at The Legacy also benefit from a number of convenience-style amenities the building has to offer, including the 24-hour doorman, onsite concierge desk offering valet dry cleaning and package receiving, and a bicycle storage room.
But the Legacy’s most unique amenity is its connection to the University Club of Chicago, one of the oldest private clubs in the city. With a sky bridge on the 13th floor, residents never have to walk outside to get to the club. Homeowners who are club members have direct access to all of the club’s luxurious facilities, including a state-of-the-art fitness facility, overnight guest rooms, year-round events and outings and a number of restaurants for casual and formal dining. Residents of the Legacy who are not members of the University Club can also enjoy certain privileges, such as access to hotel rooms for guests, access to catering services and the club’s tournament-quality squash courts. The University Club is an independent private-membership club with admission governed by its own policies and bylaws.
