Do you want to be the next Phil Cooley? This bundle of Michigan Avenue properties looks like a perfect place to start your single-block empire. There's an apartment of unknown size above a small bar, both of which look to be in decent shape. The bank might be another story, but even Slows was in terrible condition before renovation. Also included is the vacant lot in between, which is such an obvious spot for outdoor seating that it was surprising not to find any back there already.
