David Axelrod Looks to Sell Sloop Condo at The Grant

Do you want to live like a high-profile political adviser?  Well now is your chance (via Chicago Tribune):

David Axelrod — a former White House adviser and current head of the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics — and his wife, Susan, listed their three-bedroom condominium on the 44th floor of a South Loop high-rise Jan. 19 for $1.65 million.

A longtime political strategist and former Chicago Tribune reporter, Axelrod, 65, is known for helping advise Barack Obama’s successful 2008 presidential run. He then served as a senior adviser in the White House from 2009 until 2011.

David and Susan Axelrod paid $1.64 million in 2018 for the 3,000-square-foot condo in The Grant at Roosevelt Road and Indiana Avenue, so they don’t appear to expect to make much of a profit on the home, if anything.

If you're unfamiliar with Axelrod, you probably have been purposefully ignoring politics.  Anyway, we weren't aware of his (short-lived?) residence in the Sloop, but with views like this it's easy to understand why he and his wife were drawn to this unit:

The unit looks very nice, but nothing over the top in our opinion.  But that view...
