Brooklyn Nets point guard Ben Simmons is moving closer to the Barclays Center. The basketball star has entered contract for a combined two-unit apartment at Olympia Dumbo, a new 33-story residential development next to the Brooklyn Bridge. The apartment was listed for $13 million, as the New York Post reported, but the purchase price won’t be known until Simmons closes. While the Australian-born NBA star did not play in a single Nets game last season due to an injury, his new home in Dumbo is less than 15 minutes away from the team’s home court.
Simmons’ two units together measure 5,000 square feet and contain eight bedrooms, along with 325 square feet of outdoor space and incredible East River and Manhattan skyline views. Earlier this year, the former Philadelphia 76er sold his home in Moorestown, NJ for $5 million.
Developed by Fortis Property Group and designed by Hill West Architects, Olympia Dumbo contains 76 residences ranging from one- to five-bedroom apartments. As 6sqft previously reported, the tower has no more than six units per floor, due to its unique design, with the top of the structure containing a pair of full-floor penthouses.
The tower offers 38,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, with a focus on health and wellness, including a private tennis court, which probably attracted tennis star Naomi Osaka to tour the property, as the Post reported.
There’s also a private garden lounge, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a spin studio, a boxing gym, and private locker rooms on the ground floor; the 10th floor is home to a 60-foot indoor lap pool, juice bar, outdoor pool, and a children’s playground and “waterpark.”
