David Schwimmer has sold the Near West Side loft he bought back when “Friends” was still in its early years.
Schwimmer, who lives in New York, unloaded the three-bedroom, two-bathroom condo for $965,000, according to the Chicago Tribune. The sale price was a 15 percent discount from the $1.15 million Schwimmer listed the unit for in September.
Michael Rosenblum was the listing agent and public records do not identify the buyer, according to the report.
Schwimmer — aka Ross Geller — bought the condo in 1998, paying $425,000 cash, according to the report. The 2,300-square-foot fifth-floor unit features a balcony, a custom walk-in closet and hand-blown glass light fixtures.
The seven-story building at 850 W. Adams Street was converted into lofts in the 1990s. The hit NBC sitcom ran from 1994 to 2004.
Schwimmer’s ties to Chicago include co-founding the nonprofit Lookingglass Theatre Company.
He has also owned homes on both coasts. In Los Angeles in 2001, Schwimmer paid $5.5 million for an 11,300-square-foot mansion in Hancock Park. He sold the home in 2012 for nearly $9 million.
He now lives in the East Village in New York City, in a 9,000-square-foot, six-story townhouse he developed a decade ago. Schwimmer paid $4.1 million for a historic 1852 home at the site, then had it demolished as it was approaching landmark status. [Tribune] — Jacqueline Flynn
