Chicken Kitchen Owner Sells Brickell Property, Buys Pablo Escobar’s House

Cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar’s former home at 5860 North Bay Road has been sold to Christian de Berdouare, the owner of the Chicken Kitchen chain, for $9.65 million.

Berdouare just cashed in on the $7 million sale of an 8,000 square foot parcel in Brickell to Ugo Colombo and Vlad Doronin. Berdouare’s company bought that property in 2004 for $1.89 million.

Berdouare told Reuters that he plans to tear down the North Bay Road home, which was built in 1948.
