Claude Giroux buys in Rittenhouse

Claude Giroux recently bought a condo at 10 Rittenhouse Square, according to the Philadelphia Business Journal.

Claude Giroux is the latest big name to move into the prestigious 10 Rittenhouse Square building.

Philadelphia Business Journal is reporting that the Flyers captain purchased a unit on the 29th floor of the 33-story condo building in Rittenhouse Square.

Giroux, who previously lived in Old City, spent $2.2 million for the home located at 130 S. 18th Street, according to the Journal.

Some of the other big names who live in the red brick building are Brian Roberts, CEO of Comcast Corp. and Eric Foss, CEO of Aramark Corp.

Luxury amenities in the building include a pool and spa, a 13,000-square-foot amenity floor, and a hospitality suite.

Giroux made headlines recently for getting arrested in Canada for grabbing the buttocks of a police officer. An Ottawa police officer said earlier this month he does not expect Giroux to face any charges for the strange incident.
