Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon might be at the top of his game, but he’s no longer living at the top of The Coloradan.
In early September, the hockey star sold his penthouse unit on the 19th floor of the condominium building at 1750 Wewatta St. for $3.1 million, according to public records.
That’s $100,000 less than he paid for it in 2019, the year the building next to Union Station was completed.
MacKinnon purchased the unit through an entity called Shane Falco Trust, a reference to Keanu Reeves’ character in the 2000 comedy “The Replacements.” He listed the unit for sale this May, asking $3.5 million, records show. Tamara Cooper of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty represented MacKinnon in the sale.
The Avalanche chose MacKinnon first overall in the 2013 NHL draft. In eight seasons with the team, he has 210 goals, 350 assists and three All-Star Game appearances.
Eric Hochstein, former CEO of Fremont, Nebraska-based International Spices, bought the property from MacKinnon on Sept. 2, records show. A week later, he leased it to another professional athlete for nine months at $18,000 a month, according to buyer’s agent Susan Chong with Iconique Real Estate.
Sean Devine with Slate Real Estate Advisors represented the new undisclosed tenant.
“The goal is to lease it out for the next few years until the buyer figures out what he wants to do with the property in the long term,” Chong said.
The two-bedroom, three-bathroom unit is one of seven penthouses on the top floor of the building. Interior designer Anna Lambiotte of Studio Lambiotte selected the finishes, custom furniture and décor for the penthouse.
It features a 187-square-foot balcony accessed via NanaWall accordion doors, a large primary suite with a fireplace, walk-in closets and a spa-like bathroom, and a gourmet kitchen with a marble waterfall island, custom cabinetry, and top-of-the-line, built-in Sub Zero and Wolf appliances.
“The home itself was always touted as the best home at The Coloradan,” Chong said. “It’s on a corner with unobstructed views of the pool deck, city, Union Station and southern mountains.”
