If the city gets the Olympics, this area would be redeveloped into residential and serve as the home to the athletes. The Chicago Tribune is reporting about controversy surrounding Mayor Daley?s office and developer Michael Scott Sr., an early member of the mayor’s Olympic committee, about a deal to develop land near a park earmarked for the Olympic games.
