Sneed hears former Mayor Richard M. Daley and wife, Maggie, are putting their South Loop house, which they reportedly bought for $400,000 about 15 years ago, on the market for a reported $1 million plus.
Background: Mrs. Daley, who has been heroically battling metastatic breast cancer for several years, has a difficult time climbing stairs, and the couple has been living in a downtown apartment more conducive to that issue.
Not sure if a downtown apartment means one in the Sloop or one somewhere else. Regardless, sad to hear this news. Although many people have many different feelings towards our old mayor, he was definitely instrumental in the South Loop's rise.
