What a difference one week and one No. 9 Walton condominium sale makes.
On the strength of Chicago Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward’s $7.2 million sale of his 19th-floor unit at JDL Development’s Gold Coast tower, the five priciest homes that sold in the city this week more than doubled last week’s total.
The two condos and three single-family homes that left the market totaled $16.7 million. That far exceeded last week’s $6.7 million tally, which represented a low point in a luxury market that has been battered by the coronavirus.
This week’s list included two single-family homes built in the early 1900s and a more recent construction that has a four-floor elevator and 300-bottle wine cellar. In addition to No. 9 Walton, which is in the Near North Side, two homes are in Lincoln Park, one is in Kenwood and another is in Lakeview.
Price and property details were found on Redfin, from July 13 to 17.
