A Chicago trader has reportedly purchased the Esquire Theatre in the city's Gold Coast neighborhood.

The theatre closed in September 2006.

The Chicago Tribune reports that Don Wilson, Jr., the owner of Chicago-based DRW Holdings, LLC, has acquired the property.

There had been plans to demolish the theater and build a boutique hotel and luxury shops on the site, but that never happened.
