  1. Now they just need to buy the neighborhood around it too.

    I can’t wait to check this place out when it’s built, even though I’m enjoying going to see them at Notre Dame with the family.

  2. 4 acres for 11.7 million? Wow. Makes my 5 in the NW burbs for 176k look really good.

    I agree that the neighborhood sucks. Maybe they make like the cubs and actually do just that with the area
