Breaking news: CNN anchor Don Lemon has sold his condo at 2280 Frederick Douglass Boulevard for $969,000, according to 6sqft.

Lemon bought the apartment in 2014 for $889,000, netting him a tidy little profit. The anchor and host of “CNN Tonight” won an Emmy Award for a story he did on the real estate market in Chicago, so it makes sense he would make savvy real estate purchases.

According to the listing, the unit he sold is 859 square feet and has one bedroom and one bathroom. It has south and east facing views, imported tile and a mosaic in the bathroom, a custom wooden vanity and “thermostatically controlled fixtures for spa bath/shower capability.” There’s also a pretty nice rooftop with a barbecue grill, where the new owners will be able to mingle with their neighbors (including Lemon, who owns the unit next door, which he bought in 2013 for $1.5 million).
