Former Chicago Blackhawks left winger Daniel Carcillo last week listed his two-bedroom, 2,500-square-foot loft condominium in Lincoln Park for $649,000.
An Ontario native, Carcillo, 28, joined the Blackhawks as a free agent in 2011 and was part of the squad that won the Stanley Cup in June. Less than a month later , the Blackhawks traded Carcillo to the Los Angeles Kings. Earlier this month, the Kings traded him to the New York Rangers.
The condo is in a 19th-century public school building that was converted into 12 loft condos. Carcillo bought it in July 2012 for $640,000.
The third-floor condo has three baths and a fireplace, 20-foot ceilings, large windows, hardwood floors, a kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, a sunroom and a private rooftop deck.
"It's a very unique, special building in Lincoln Park, with spaces that are different than your typical Chicago building on a 25-foot-by-125-foot lot," said listing agent Doug Horwich, of Prudential Rubloff. "And this unit has an amazing rooftop deck with city views. And the adjoining sunroom has great views as well. It's a really cool-looking, interesting space."
Edelmans' former co-op under contract
The six-bedroom duplex co-op on the Gold Coast that public relations pioneers Dan Edelman and his wife, Ruth, owned until their deaths in 2013 is under contract after being listed last week for $2.5 million.
Considered a pioneer of modern public relations, Dan Edelman founded his Chicago-based public relations firm in 1952 and built it into the world's largest PR firm. He died in January 2013 at age 92. Ruth was a major force behind the scenes, helping her husband grow the firm. She died in October at age 84.
The Edelmans' heirs listed the 5,100-square-foot co-op unit, which the couple had owned for 50 years, according to listing agent Meredith Manni Meserow of Koenig & Strey. Features include five baths, high ceilings and a grand master suite. The co-op is in a building built in 1929 and designed by architect Philip Maher.
The unit went under contract Monday. "The buyers are local and have great taste," Meserow said. "I know they'll do a fabulous job renovating this unit because they see the stately, magnificent architecture of this building and this unit."Copyright © 2015, RedEye
