Billionaire Jennifer Pritzker is continuing to cull her Chicago-area real estate portfolio, selling an Evanston mansion and listing a Gold Coast rowhouse in the same week.

Pritzker and her Tawani Enterprises own a number of properties in the Chicago area, most concentrated on the North Shore and in Chicago’s Gold Coast.

Last week she sold the 4,000-square-foot home on Judson Avenue in Evanston for $1.2 million, and on Tuesday she listed the 19th century rowhouse at 1234 North State Parkway in Chicago for $4 million, according to Crain’s.

The two homes are among several Pritzker has sold or listed in the past year, including a group of four North Shore homes she listed in May, and a Winnetka mansion she listed in February for $3.9 million.

Pritzker, who retired from the Army in 2001 as a lieutenant colonel, is part of the Pritzker family of billionaires that includes her cousins, Gov. J.B. Pritzker, and former U.S. Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker.

Jennifer Pritzker has a net worth of close to $2 billion, according to Forbes. [Crain’s] — John O’Brien
