A Chicago building once housing the Man's Country bathhouse is back up for sale, according to reports.
Developers had originally planned to turn the building into a condominium complex, but the property has been put back on the market, Uptown Update reported Sept. 5. Selling price of the building, located at 5015 N. Clark St., is just under $1.8 million.
The property was to be named The Renslow, after Chuck Renslow, the proprietor of Man's Country who passed away in 2017. Neighbors and developers reportedly could not reach an agreement on the design of the property.
Renslow owned a number of businesses and was especially active in Chicago Democratic politics in the '70s and '80s. He also published GayLife newspaper before that folded in 1986, and founded the annual International Mr. Leather competition, which this year celebrated its 40th anniversary.
A nearby street was named after Renslow in May.
