It's apparent we've been harping on the whereabouts of this modernist Bucktown green machine for quite some time as it bounces on and off the for-sale market. This must be what it feels like to lead a paparazzi lifestyle. It's just that strange things keep happening to this LEED Platinum-certified four-bed, built in 2010 by developer Tom McGrath. The original listing swan-dived its way from $2.5M to $1.39M. For a long time McGrath's green claims were unsubstantiated, but the promised LEED designation did arrive. The next odd event was the overnight re-listing of the property for $1.799M— a move that screamed flip but that the listing agent explains as an unexpected transfer: the owners "would never sell" otherwise. Well this time the market was ready for the radical "open tree house" vibe, and produced a buyer willing to pay $1.525M.
