Among the tens of thousands of Cook County AG亚洲国际游戏homeowners receiving their latest property tax bills in early July, one will stand out as particularly hefty: the bill for more than $1.3 million in 2019 property taxes that billionaire Ken Griffin owes on his multistory Gold Coast condo.
Griffin, who heads the Citadel financial empire, paid more than $58 million in late 2017 for four floors of unfinished space at the top of No. 9 Walton. His past tax bills on the space were smaller, as they didn’t yet reflect the value of the finished property. The bill he received at this time last year was about $139,000, Crain’s found in records received from the treasurer under a Freedom of Information Act request.
