Mansion Global reports that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who made national headlines and became a campaign topic when he chose not to stand during the National Anthem, dropped $3.21 million on a luxury condo at One York in Tribeca. The 29-year-old NFL player recently listed his San Jose mansion for $2.895 million, igniting rumors that he’ll leave the team after this season. The sale in New York may add further fuel to the fire, but it actually closed in July through a family trust, prior to his August sit-ins.
The 1,733-square-foot, two-bedroom pad has 9.5-foot ceilings, large windows, wide-plank oak floors, 8-foot solid wood doors, and views facing south, east, and west. The open entertaining space has living and dining areas, as well as an uber-contemporary kitchen with full glass cabinetry and high-end appliances.
In addition to the two bedrooms–the master has an en-suite bath–the apartment also has a home office space and entry gallery with adjacent powder room. the bathrooms have whirlpool tubs and Calcutta Gold marble flooring.
Perhaps the biggest perk of living at One York is the Swiss-engineered, automated parking garage, the first of its kind in the city, that gives residents private parking spaces.
Designed by Mexican architect Enrique Norton of TEN Arquitectos, One York Street has drawn the attention of quite a few other celebrities. Rihanna checked out an $18 million apartment here in August 2014, and last September Rangers center Derick Brassard bought a $4.1 million unit, which he ended up selling a year later for $4.5 million.
Other amenities include a 28-foot heated pool on the sundeck, private health club, and individual temperature-controlled storage units.
