Known by his teammates and fans as “captain serious,” Blackhawks center Jonathan Toews has dropped an appropriately serious chunk of change on new Chicago digs. The athlete paid $6.44 million for a condo inside the luxurious No. 9 Walton tower, according to a source reported by Crain’s.
Although details such as the unit’s square footage and floor location within the building remain unclear, Toews’ purchase further establishes the newly finished high-rise from JDL Development as a favorite among Chicago’s rich and famous.
In January, billionaire hedge fund founder Ken Griffin paid in excess of $58 million for No. 9 Walton’s top floor levels plus $8.9 million more (according to a permit estimate) to finish the raw space. Cubs right fielder Jason Heyward purchased a 19th-floor condo in the building for $6.93 million this summer, reported the Chicago Tribune.
Toews made his professional ice hockey debut with Chicago in 2007 and has been with the team ever since, picking up a trio of Stanley Cup championships during that time.
Between his salary with the Blackhawks and his various endorsement deals, Toews has held the distinction of being the NHL’s highest-paid player for the last two years, according to SB Nation.
The 30-year-old Winnipeg native’s prior Chicago residences include a three-bedroom condo in Lakeshore East’s Regatta as well as a five-bedroom single-family home in Lincoln Park. The athlete purchased the latter in 2014 for $3.525 million before selling the North Side property for $3.825 million in 2016.
