WRIGLEYVILLE — The owners of the Chicago Cubs have added three more Wrigleyville rooftops to their roster as they launch an umbrella website for all 10 locations.

Wrigley Rooftops, owned by the Ricketts family, has 10 rooftop properties on Sheffield and Waveland avenues. The latest acquisitions are at 1010, 1038 and 1048 W. Waveland Ave., family spokesman Dennis Culloton confirmed Wednesday.

Beyond the Ivy, the company that sold the rooftops, felt "it was a good transaction, and everything went smoothly," said attorney David Kelley. "We're happy and we wish them luck."

As of Wednesday, the Beyond the Ivy website redirects to the new Wrigley Rooftops website.

Culloton and Kelley declined to release details on the sale price for the three rooftops.

Over the past year, the Ricketts family purchased six other rooftops. One year ago, 3639 N. Sheffield Ave., 3643-45 N. Sheffield and 1032-34 W. Waveland Ave. were sold. In May, the Rickettses bought 3637, 3617 and 3619 N. Sheffield Ave.

The fast-spreading reach of Wrigley Rooftops comes on the tail end of a court battle with the owners of two independent rooftops. While a federal judge dismissed the case in September, owners of Skybox on Sheffield and Lakeview Baseball Club are asking the judge to reconsider.

New attorneys for the two rooftops were not immediately available to comment on the status of the civil lawsuit.

On Wednesday, Wrigley Rooftops launched its interactive website, which provides a central location for fans to peruse all 10 rooftops and make reservations for the upcoming season. Prices start at $65 per ticket and include food, beverages and a view of the game from a skybox or indoor lounge.

The Cubs and Wrigley Field are 95 percent owned by a trust established for the benefit of the family of Joe Ricketts, owner and CEO of DNAinfo.com. Joe Ricketts has no direct involvement in the management of the iconic team.
