Ex-Groupon CEO Andrew Mason Cuts Final Ties With Chicago, Selling Loft
By John Dodge
CHICAGO (CBS) — The former CEO and co-founder of Groupon has put his Chicago loft up for sale, cutting the last vestige to his career here.
The three bedroom, three and a half bathroom loft comes with the usual high-end amenities and includes a rooftop deck with a pool and a three-car garage.
The listing describes “unreal designer finishes throughout [and an] incredible kitchen with white lacquer cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and granite counters.”
In January, Mason unloaded his lakefront Evanston home for $4.07 million, according to the Tribune. The five bedroom mansions sits on nearly an acre of land along Lake Michigan.
The co-founder of Groupon served as CEO until his board fired him in February, 2013
The firing came one day after the company had reported a bigger-than-expected loss and gave a weak revenue outlook for the current quarter. The guidance had fueled investor worry that people are getting fatigued with the online deals.
He has since moved to San Francisco with his wife.
