ELITE STREET | By Bob Goldsborough | Aon Corp. Chairman Lester B. Knight has paid $3.2 million for a unit in a new luxury high-rise on the Gold Coast.

A former Baxter executive who founded RoundTable Healthcare Partners, Knight is one of the highest-profile buyers in the 60-story building, where units have closed for as much as $8 million. Another big-name buyer is former Chicago Mercantile Exchange CEO James McNulty, who recently paid $6.9 million to buy the entire 37th floor.

Knight declined to comment on his purchase, which closed May 7.

    Why does anyone care? Why does the Trib run this People magazine type of stuff…..because it is becoming People magazine–or worse?

    Well, if you are going to write this stuff, at least tell us WHERE the super condo is.
