Sex Sells: No home for Playboy?

Sex Sells: No home for Playboy?

A few weeks ago we covered the return of Playboy to Chicago. Now it seems that the return has hit a snag...

Crain's Chicago reports that local businesses in the area of the proposed new mansion were not happy about neighboring with Playboy.

“We had a lease that was done earlier this month, and I chose not to move forward with it,” said Fred Latsko, who owns the mansion near Dearborn and Division streets. “It wasn't in our best interest to put them in that building because of the other restaurants (on the block). I think a lot of people didn't like the idea.”

Playboy declined to comment but it seems like they are exploring several options despite the setback.

Dorothy Claybourne is a corporate business woman, entrepreneur, and independent artist working in Chicago.
