Joe Mansueto House

He lives in a $22 million mansion in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Magazine Architectural Record gained rare access to one of the most unusual and enigmatic new homes in Chicago. This sleek steel-frame mansion is on West St. James Place in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago and has an exterior that looks more like a Silicon Valley corporate campus than a single-family home. It was commissioned by billionaire Morningstar founder Joe Mansueto and his wife Rika, and the family made significant contributions to the University of Chicago library bearing their last name.

The process of turning the Lincoln Park property from a dream into a reality has taken some time. Plans eventually called for the Lincoln Park 2520 tower, designed by Lucien Lagrange, with 39 floors and 19 lots for new townhomes. In 2011, Crain’s reported that Mansueto was purchasing every one of the eight of parts on the north side of St. James Spot to construct a solitary, huge home. The following year, the project’s construction began.
