Chicago Blackhawks star Jonathan Toews bought a condo in JDL Development’s No. 9 Walton for some $6.3 million, adding to the celebrity list there.

The three-time Stanley Cup winner joins Illinois’ richest man and a host of other big name buyers in the luxury condo tower at 9 West Walton Street in the Gold Coast, according to Crain’s. There were no details on the size of the unit or what floor it’s on.

Billionaire Ken Griffin shattered the record for most expensive home sales in Chicago when he bought the unfinished top four floors of the building late last year for $58 million. And the tower has dominated the list of top residential sales for the last year.

Other residents of the tower when the 38-story building is finished later this year will include Cubs outfield Jason Heyward, Bulls center Omer Asik and Ferrara Candy Company CEO Todd Siwak.

JDL’s Jim Letchinger confirmed to Crain’s there was a sale Monday in the $6.3 million range but declined to give any details.

Toews has played with the Blackhawks since 2007, winning the Stanley Cup in 2010, 2013 and 2015. In 2016, he sold a Lincoln Park mansion for $3.8 million that he had owned since late 2014, according to Crain’s. [Crain’s] — John O’Brien
