Taraji P. Henson Lists Condo in Chicago High-Rise (EXCLUSIVE)

Location:
Chicago, Ill.
Price:
$1.525 million
Size:
2,159 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms

Taraji P. Henson is in the mood to lighten her real estate load and listed a three-bedroom and 2.5-bathroom pied-a-terre condominium on a high floor of a glass-clad, two-towered high-rise complex in Chicago’s affluent Streeterville neighborhood at $1.525 million. The three-time Emmy nominated “Empire” star, nominated for an Oscar in 2009 for “The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons,” purchased the 2,159-square-foot apartment almost 2.5 years ago for $1.408 million.

With freshly refinished dark brown hardwood floors and an aggressively neutral paint scheme, the Windy City aerie features a wedge-shaped living room with a faux fireplace and a wall of windows fitted with electronic shades plus an ample dining room that comfortably seats eight or ten and an open-plan kitchen with dark chocolate colored cabinetry, speckled dark taupe granite counter tops and medium-grade stainless steel appliances. All three bedrooms, two with newly installed cream-colored wall-to-wall carpeting and the third with hardwood floors, have electronic black-out window shades and a small, shard-shaped and glass-railed balcony off the dining room will surely frighten the socks off acrophobics but nonetheless offers a spectacular, bird’s eye view over Lake Michigan, the Navy Pier and the Ohio Street Beach.

Henson, who has a handful of high-profile projects in the hopper including the bio-drama “Richard Pryor: Is It Something I Said?” and the titular role in the upcoming action/thriller “Proud Mary,” substantially upgraded her residential circumstances in Los Angles last year with the $6.45 million, off-market purchase of a secluded residence perched on a private hilltop above Laurel Canyon. The veteran actress additionally owns a Spanish-style residence in the hills above Glendale, Calif., she bought in 2002 for $431,000 and recently made available as a rental at $4,750 per month as well as a 4,200-square-foot three-story, vaguely Moorish villa in the hills above Beachwood Canyon she acquired in 2010 for $1.695 million and, after almost two unsuccessful years on and off the market at steadily declining prices, currently has available at a recently reduced ask of $2.598 million.
