Newly engaged couple Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have found a buyer for their sky-high Midtown apartment, the New York Post reported Tuesday. The duo listed their pad at 432 Park Avenue–the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere–for $17.5 million in January, less than a year after they bought the three-bedroom apartment. It remains unclear who the buyer is and how much they ultimately paid.
Last spring, the couple, affectionately called J-Rod, bought the 4,000-square-foot unit at 432 Park for roughly $15.3 million. The apartment sits on the 36th floor of the 88-floor building and contains three bedrooms and four and a half baths.
Amenities of the unit include its own elevator, oak floorings, a library, and custom-designed eat-in kitchen. The building, designed by Rafael Viñoly, offers residents three full floors of entertainment and dining, as well as a fitness center, 75-foot swimming pool, billiards, and an 18-seat screening room.
They decided to sell the apartment after less than a year of owning it in order to search for something larger. “They love the building, but when their kids are all together, it’s too small,” a source told the Post at the time. “They need something bigger for the family.”
The recent sale comes as A-Rod enters the real estate industry in a slightly different way. Earlier this month, 6sqft learned that the former Yankee bought a 21-unit rental building in the East Village, his first purchase as a New York City landlord.
