No. 9 Walton is getting another famous resident
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 roughly $6.3 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 $6.934 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 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.
