Fox Sports personality Colin Cowherd dished out $3.25 million for a condo in downtown Chicago.
Cowherd and his wife, Ann, bought a three-bedroom, 3,200-square-foot unit in the 70-story Park Tower off North Sheridan Road, Crain’s reported. The sale comes out to roughly $1,015 per square foot.
Linda Levin of Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty represented the sellers, whose identities are shielded from public records. Annie Flanagan of @properties represented the Cowherds.
One of Chicagoland’s priciest residential sales of last year occurred in the same building, when billionaire Ken Griffin sold his 8,000-square-foot 66th-floor condo for $11.2 million, or $1,400 per square foot.
Cowherd’s condo, on the 25th floor, was previously owned by Dennis FitzSimons, former chairman and CEO of the Chicago Tribune. FitzSimons and his wife, Ann, acquired the condo in 2010 for over $2.62 million, selling it eight years later for $2.9 million. Those buyers held onto it until Cowherd’s purchase.
The Park Tower condo features a remodeled kitchen, modern amenities and breathtaking views. Its east-facing windows provide panoramic views of the water tower, pumping station, and nearby parkland stretching out to Lake Michigan. The unit also includes a covered balcony.
The purchase comes amid speculation stirred by Colin Cowherd himself regarding the future of college football standout Caleb Williams and his potential reluctance to join the Chicago Bears. However, Cowherd quickly backtracked on his statements, attributing them to the Bears’ historical struggles and the team’s unfavorable reputation among quarterbacks.
