Actor Taylor Kinney, who plays Chicago Fire Department Lt. Kelly Severide on NBC’s “Chicago Fire,” has negotiated, paying $2.75 million in March to buy a three-bedroom, 2,750-square-foot condo in the 45th floor of a New East Side Tower of Duracell CEO Thom Lachman and his wife, Rhonda.
Kinney, 41, has lived in Chicago for a long time and, in addition to “Chicago Fire,” has played the same role on the television shows “Chicago Med” and “Chicago PD.” In 2017, Kinney paid $1.22 million for a 3,380-square-foot apartment in a renovated loft building on the Near West Side.
Now, Kinney has purchased a unit closer to the lake. And the New East Side is a neighborhood Kinney has lived in before, as he leased the Aqua Tower before buying the Near West Side loft in 2017.
Recently renovated through a gut rehab, Kinney’s new 45th floor unit is in a building that was built in 2007. It has three bathrooms, an open floor plan, solid walnut floors, quartz and marble countertops, custom cabinets High-gloss grabill, handcrafted hardwoods Integrated, unobstructed views of Millennium Park, Monroe Harbor and the Chicago skyline.
The Lachmans had paid $2.73 million in 2017 for the condo. They first listed the unit in September 2021 for $3.35 million and then lowered its asking price in February to just under $3 million.
Nicholas Colagiovanni, who represented Kinney in the purchase of the New East Side, did not respond to a request for comment. Kinney’s Near West Side loft unit is not currently on the market.
Kinney’s new unit on the New East Side had a property tax bill of $33,989 in fiscal year 2020, plus $1,577 per month in homeowners association dues.
