In the market for some new digs? Have a couple million saved up for a rainy day? You're in luck: two of the most expensive properties in the Chicago area have just opened up.

A 13,200 square foot Gold Coast penthouse was put on the market by Bill Wrigley, Jr., chewing gum heir and chairman of Wm. Wrigley Jr. Co. At $14 million, the property is the most expensive residential listing in the city, the Tribune reports. Wrigley also placed his Lake Forest 11,013 square foot mansion on the market for $14.5 million, giving the heir the distinction of trying to sell "two of the five highest-priced properties in the Chicago area."
