Toews In His Comfort Zone

from Judy Hevrdejs of the Chicago Tribune,

At the moment, though, Toews is sitting in his new condo, 30-plus floors above the hustle and grind and noise of the city on a cafe au lait-toned sectional, its long, comfortable stretches big enough for his 6-foot-2-inch, 210-pound frame.

The sofa — its view-blocking chaise relegated to another room by Toews — faces a 12-foot-tall wall of windows, offering up picture-perfect vistas of Trump Tower, the Wrigley Building, the Chicago River, Navy Pier and Lake Michigan.

“It’s kind of like your cave on top of the world with a view,” says Toews (pronounced tayvz). “It’s all very modern, it’s new, it’s young. I just really felt it fit my personality.”

It’s also quiet, peaceful and big — three bedrooms, three baths, 2,700 square feet — big enough for family and close friends. And exactly what the Chicago Blackhawks’ captain — one of the youngest in NHL history — wanted when he searched for his first home.
