The NBA superstar has opted to rent rather than own

A Gold Coast mansion made famous by the 1980’s television show Webster is further boosting its celebrity status thanks to its latest tenant: newly-signed Chicago Bull Dwyane Wade. Designed by architects A.M.F. Colton and his son, Samuel K. Colton, the home dates back to 1885 and was most recently sold in 2011 to Randy and Steven of Fifield Development and Fifield Capital Partners for nearly $5 million. Following an extensive renovation, the 10,000-square-foot property has been on the market since spring seeking $9.5 million. According to the MRED, the home was delisted yesterday — the same day that news of Mr. Wade’s tenancy was first reported by Crain’s.

A Chicagoland native, the 34-year-old shooting guard previously owned a Fulton River District townhouse in Kinzie Park which reportedly sold for $1.7 million in 2014 as well as a 7,800-square-foot home in suburban South Holland that he previously shared with his ex-wife and children prior to the couple’s divorce in 2007. Facing foreclosure, the latter changed hands last month for just $300,000. The lease details of Wade’s new Gold Coast abode — such as his presumably stratospheric monthly rent — have not been publicly disclosed.
