Chicago Native Son and Former Bull, Jabari Parker Emerges as Buyer of Historic House on Prairie Avenue

An interesting buyer has emerged for a historic property in the Sloop (via Chicago Tribune):

Former Chicago Bulls forward Jabari Parker, a native son who led Simeon Career Academy to four straight state championships, paid $2.3 million for an eight-bedroom, 10,660-square-foot vintage mansion in the Prairie District on the Near South Side.

A South Shore native, Parker, 26, began his NBA career with the Milwaukee Bucks and then played for the Bulls for one year. He now plays for the Boston Celtics.

The house is a beaut, but curious to see what his plans are for the prominent property.  If you recall, we posted about this sale back in January and before it was know who the buyer was, the real estate agent said that the buyer "intends to use the house as a single family home".

Welcome to the Sloop Jabari and crew!
