Cubs Don’t Cooperate, Sandberg Lists his Co-Op

March 31, 2012

When the Chicago Cubs were looking for a new manager, I had hoped it would be former Cubs second baseman Ryne Sandberg, a favorite of mine as a kid. But he was passed over for the job, more than once, and he has expressed his disdain not only verbally but also through his Chicago real estate: Ryno is selling his Streeterville home.

Sandberg, who is now a minor-league manager with the Philadelphia Phillies, has listed his Chicago co-op for sale for $650,000.

That comes out to $260 per square foot for the 2,500-square-foot unit, which is located at 237 East Delaware Place, a pet friendly building situated just steps off Michigan Avenue in the heart of Streeterville.

The fifth-floor co-op includes three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, hardwood floors throughout, a wood-burning fireplace, a separate dining room and a laundry room.

Monthly association fees on the home are $2,228 and there is no parking included. The 2010 tax bill on the property was $8,655.60.

Sandberg bought the place back in 1998 and gave it a nice update throughout. It is his last property tie to Chicago. I really hope he isn’t shutting the door to coming back to Chicago sometime in the future.
