In January 2013 the former Chicago Bull Michael Jordan put his luxury 56,000 square-foot Chicago mansion on the market again for $21 million, after he failed to get the $29 million he asked for when he first listed it early in 2012. His Airness’s 56,000-square-foot Highland Park secluded compound was built between 1993 and 1995 and features nine bedrooms, fifteen bathrooms and an indoor regulation basketball court with “specially cushioned hardwood flooring” and “competition-quality high-intensity lighting,” according to listing details.
Other amenities include an indoor-outdoor entertaining and pool area, a putting green, a tennis court, a 15-car garage and a three-bedroom guesthouse. Chairman of the Charlotte Bobcats, Mr. Jordan had “23” on his estate’s privacy gate.
The price tag of this luxury crib is the second most expensive public listing in the Chicago area, following the 89th floor penthouse at the Trump International Hotel & Tower. Currently Mr. Jordan is spending much of his time at a 28,000-square-foot 11-bedroom estate in Jupiter, Florida.
