In the summer of 2010, before the NBA’s Miami Heat began the “Big 3 Era,” Heat guard Dwyane Wade purchased a brick-lined townhouse in the River West district of Chicago.
Being a native Chicagoan, the $1.425 million purchase seemed innocuous at the time. It was only when the All-Star guard hit the market the following year, at a time when the hometown Bulls were flush with cash, that the purchase began raising eyebrows. Wade would re-sign with Miami, putting worried Heat fans’ minds at ease, and would team with Chris Bosh and LeBron James to capture two NBA titles over the next three years.
Fast-forward to today and the 10-year veteran is now looking to part ways with his Kinzie Park town home. According to our friends at Busted Coverage, D-Wade is asking $1.799 million for the Canal Street residence.
Built in 2000, the riverfront residence can be found across the Chicago River and near the East Bank Club. Spanning more than 3,900 square feet of living space, the luxury townhouse boasts a host of amenities that range from a state-of-the-art kitchen with wine cooler and wet bar, to a rooftop terrace with views of the river.
A custom master suite comes complete with its own fireplace, marble flooring, a steam shower and a soaking tub. An additional fireplace is found in the living room, and the property also has a two-car garage.
Prior to a standout career at Marquette, the 6-foot-4 guard was a graduate of Harold L. Richards High School in Oak Lawn, Ill. A nine-time All-Star, Wade was selected fifth overall by the Heat in the 2003 NBA draft and has helped Miami to three NBA championships over the past decade.
