    This venerable mansion is a nice building, but the neighborhood is so bad, it cannot have any appeal today.

      Clearly showing your complete incompetence and ignorance yet again. This is PRIME Lincoln Park, literally around the corner Morningstar CEO built one the biggest / most expensive homes in the city. And a block up the street 2550 is one of the most expensive, luxury buildings in the city.

      The location across from, Lincoln Park location is unheard of. This block is single families, but yes there are high rises on the street due to the desirability and value of the lake / park front. The house requires a lot of updating and is taste specific so it will only appeal to certain buyers. The “location” has extreme positives but yes some would prefer a few blocks west surrounded by single family homes… while others would say I live on the Park / Lake Front… F u.

        Not so much my ignorance as my druthers. I should have said, “it cannot have any appeal today to me.” My bad. Whatever that great big gray monstrosity is right beside the mansion, it’s practically on top of it. Nice view out that side of the house. As for that park and pond across the street, forget it. Check out all those cars parked on the goddam street on both sides – they are not the rides of multi-millionaires, they belong to the lower and middle classes of the great unwashed, and if they are hanging out in that park it’s going to be busy, noisy, and potentially dangerous. I can’t speak for the Morningstar CEO, but normal oligarchs prefer not to rub elbows with mobs of the hoi polloi. Oh, and that marina just beyond the park – zoom in on it – no yachts, just a gaggle of very small boats. If this is a luxury neighborhood, what exactly is the attraction? Just arbitrary high prices? Maybe it’s those 2 open air, exposed parking spaces the listing boasts of. Not for my millions.
        Perhaps I’ve lived in the southwest too long. Here, because of the magic of urban sprawl we’re not piled on top of each other – the aggravations and annoyances inherent in high-density city life are greatly mitigated. The Wrigley mansion now appears to be at a mini-epicenter of lots of urban activity. It’s in foreclosure, the seller expects it to sell for just over half the $7+ million asking price, I doubt it will get much more than even half of the sellers dismal expectation. It went for well under $1 million 5 years ago. Seriously, with all the luxury housing available in the Chicago metropolitan area, would this be your first choice?
