Relocating and need something really high end?  Baird and Warner’s Jim Kinney  , vice president of luxury home sales, recently listed the 13,200 SF goldcoast penthourse of Bill Wrigley Jr (chewing gum heir and chairman of the Wrigley Co.).  The price, an astonishing $14 MILLION.

The property is undeveloped space on the 8th floor of the Lucien Lagrange-designed luxury building at 66 E. Goethe.  The unit is a combo of three that he purchased for over $9 million some seven years ago.  The space has never been built-out.  Kinney was quote in a Chicago Tribune article as indicating “The penthouse includes two 1,500-square-foot outdoor spaces on the roof, plus six garage spaces… In addition, Wrigley is including architectural drawings that he commissioned for the space in the asking price.”

Kinney added, when asked about the building, that it is “a sort of Who’s Who of Chicago that lives there.  It’s a matter of the right timing to get the right match.”




The price dwarf’s the famous relo listing of JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie DImon’s $10.5 MILLION, which is in the same neighborhood, around the corner on tony Astor Street.
