Onetime home of
Bears great Sid Luckman
is For Sale

original article in Crain's Chicago Business by DENNIS RODKIN  ​

An apartment building in Ravenswood Manor where Chicago Bears great Sid Luckman lived in the 1950s came back on the market recently, offered as a potential conversion to a single-family home.

The asking price is just under $1.9 million for the 100-year-old brick building on Sunnyside Avenue. Built as two large full-floor residential units, it is now divided into four apartments, said Henry Schleichkorn, the Chicago Northside Realty agent and managing broker representing the property.

In his listing, Schleichkorn recommends turning the 8,900-square-foot building into a single-family home or up to six units as an investment property or live in one unit and rent the others.

"It would be spectacular," he said. With a loft studio on the top floor—now a rental unit—11 bedrooms and five full baths, "it could be turned into a great house."

Listing photos show several large window bays, painted wood trim throughout and well-kept hardwood floors.

Sid Luckman played for the Bears from 1939 until 1950, tapped by team owner George Halas to develop the T-formation offense and leading the team to four NFL championships.

Luckman and his family lived in the building from at least 1953, when his address shows up in a Chicago Tribune article, until 1957.
