According to a report in Chicago Real Estate Daily, Steppenwolf Theatre has purchased its next-door neighbor, an 18,000-square-foot Ethan Allen furniture store at 1700 N. Halsted. Steppenwolf executive director David Hawkanson declined to comment on the story, which pegs the purchase price at $6.4 million. According to a Steppenwolf spokesperson, "things are still being finalized."
