Another home-buying opportunity has surfaced in President Obamas neighborhood, this time right next door.
The owners of the famously vacant land next to Obamas home in Chicagos Kenwood neighborhood are trying to sell the 50-by-150 lot at 5050 S. Greenwood Ave.,for $899,000.

Where’s Dave McGinniss when you need him?
It'd be best to make it a park and allow OWS'ers to live there in their tents.
(Mostly OT, but) I doubt Obama will end up living in THAT location for long, if at all, post-White House. He’ll find something more palatial. (And by the way, I don’t blame him. Ex-Presidents need protection and a degree of seclusion.) A Hawaiian estate, perhaps, and another home in an urban area, but probably nicer than even this one in Chi-town.
If I read this correctly, Secret Service mows Barry’s lawn?
I thought it was owned by Rezko’s wife — did she sell it?
She paid $625,000 full price — so the Obama’s could get a $300,000 discount on their home.
Then later sold a strip of it for $100,000 to the Obama’s.
so if 10000 people chipped in 10, it would make a wonderful HQ for Free Republic, an enormous cross, etc...
The owners of the lot purchased it in 2008 for $675,00 with plans to construct a 8,000-square-foot home there but never moved forward with it. The architectural drawings for that potential home are available, too.
it’s nice when men carry a bag for a LADY, BUT she is NO lady
That would probably not be unusual. Rather than trying to make sure some lawn-mowing agency with shifting employees are always secure, it’s probably easier for the SS to just mow the lawn.
I don’t have a problem with the SS doing that. The agents are always on site and usually bored to tears, especially when the protected person is always out-of-town, 99% of the time.
It’s just the Secret Service doing what is easiest to address.
But, see the video I posted above.
They may have bought it from Rezko’s wife. See the video.
love that idea!
A guy putting a Golf Planet store there could make a killing.
Will do, but I’ll try it later in the day.
Might be a perfect place to build a couple windmills.
Where are the Occupy hoards when we need ‘em?
An 8000 sq. ft. single story house would fit perfectly with a foot to spare on all sides.
A lot sized at 50 X 150? We could probably squeeze in a few single wide trailers as housing for poor unwed mothers.
Those folks have a hard enough life. Having Obama as a neighbor would be a unnecessary additional burden for them to have to endure.
I like urban agriculture myself. Locally grown pork in particular.
I think a hog confinement facility would be a good fit.
Check your math.
Damn dyslexia! The lot will fit perfectly in the house.
Kinda reminds me of ads on TV when I was a kid offering a deed to “one square inch” of land in Alaska if I remember correctly. I used to visualize a house suspended on a one square inch steel support column.
Get a bunch of folks to purchase it,
Erect a gallows and hang a manny quin with a striking resemblance to obammy and see how that flys!!
