The Ricketts family continue their game of real-life Monopoly in Wrigleyville.
Danny Ecker of Crain's Chicago Business reported Wednesday the Ricketts have purchased three more rooftop buildings across the street from Wrigley Field.
The Cubs owners now claim nine of the 16 rooftop venues on Sheffield and Waveland. A little over a year ago, the Ricketts owned zero rooftop properties.

The three recent Ricketts purchases include the Beyond the Ivy rooftop buildings at 1010 and 1038 W. Waveland Ave. and the Sky Lounge Wrigley Rooftop at 1048 W. Waveland.
Ecker did not have valuations for any of the three sales.
After a nasty dispute with the rooftop owners over an effort to install video boards at Wrigley was finally settled, the Ricketts have been aggressive over the last 13 months:
It's interesting the Ricketts have not bought any of the buildings directly behind the video boards, as they essentially don't have much to offer right now with the structures now blocking the view.
