An 18-year-old man is facing charges after allegedly breaking into Michael Jordan’s $15 million mansion in Chicago.
The home intruder at Jordan’s old mansion, which is known as “Legend Point,” is expected to appear in court on April 20, being charged with two counts of criminal damage to property and one count of criminal trespass to occupied residence, all of which are misdemeanors, The New York Post reported.
No One At Home
The Highland Park mansion, which has been unoccupied since 2012 was the target of an April 4 break-in. Neighbors alerted authorities, who reportedly found 18-year-old Raiden Hagedorn on the 56,000-square-foot property.
There also have been reports that a second person, a minor, was also taken into custody.
Jordan put the property up for sale in 2012, but got no takers. It was originally listed for $29 million. Since then, the asking price has been reduced several times and now stands a little under $15 million on the marketplace.
The residence has nine bedrooms, 19 baths, an indoor basketball gymnasium, an infinity pool, a tennis court and a cigar room.
Construction on the mansion, designed by architect Richard Landry, began in 1991, and was completed in 1995. The main entrance gate features Jordan’s famous No. 23 jersey.
The property was recently used for a music video shot for the Travis Scott song “Franchise.”
Whoever buys the $15 million mansion reportedly would have to pay about $136,000 a year in property taxes on the estate.
Jordan’s Real Estate Portfolio
Jordan, 60, has several residences, but his primary residence is a 28,000-square-foot mansion in Jupiter, Florida. The mansion is located in The Bear’s Club, a luxury golf community that Jordan helped develop.
The property has eleven bedrooms, a pool house, a basketball court, a tennis court and a cigar room. Jordan also has a private Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course on the property.
In addition to his Florida mansion, Jordan also owns homes in North Carolina and Utah. His North Carolina home is a 12,310-square-foot estate located in the upscale suburb of Cornelius, while his Utah home is a 9,574-square-foot ski-in, ski-out property located in Park City.
A six-time NBA champion, Jordan’s time with the Chicago Bulls spanned from 1984 to 1993 and then from 1995 to 1998. The five-time NBA Most Valuable Player retired in 2003 after playing (2001 to 2003) for the Washington Wizards. Jordan, who has a net worth of $2 billion, is also looking to sell his majority stake in the Charlotte Hornets. According to the Daily Mail, his stake in the NBA team is worth $1.7 billion.
