Chicago Cubs right-fielder Jason Heyward paid nearly $7 million for a 19th-floor condo in a new Gold Coast tower that has been racking up high sale prices.
Heyward paid more than $6.93 million, via a legal entity registered to him and his parents. The sale closed in late June and was entered into public records July 5th, according to the Cook County Recorder of Deeds.
The same day he bought the condo, Heyward took out a $4.5 million mortgage, according to the recorder. That suggests he made a down payment of about $2.43 million, or 35 percent of the purchase price. The sale was not listed on the multiple-listing service, so it’s not known whether he worked with a real estate agent.
Heyward, who joined the Cubs at the start of their World Series-winning 2016 season, has an eight-year, $184 million contract with the team. He hasn’t lived up to expectations, based off his contract, but his speech in Game 7 of the World Series which helped motivated the Cubs to beat the Indians made him signing worth every penny.
