Back in July, 6sqft reported that Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis was renting out an $8,000/month penthouse at Midtown West‘s amenity-filled Sky, as well as renting out two more high-floor units for his brothers Martins and Janis. Perhaps due to the building’s Carmelo Anthony-designed NBA regulation-sized basketball court, another player for the team has followed suite; the Post brings news today that shooting guard Sasha Vujacic is living in an $8,200/month pad at the glassy slab tower, and he and Porzingis have been spotting shooting hoops together here.
The basketball court is part of a 70,000-square-foot recreation facility that also boasts gyms, three pools, a café, yoga and cycling studios, billiards lounge, and a spa. Other amenities include a motor court with a sculpture designed by Yayoi Kusama, a retail podium, pet spa, rooftop terrace, and fully landscaped courtyard.
At the price of $8,200, Vujacic (who was famously once engaged to Maria Sharapova) is likely renting one of the Vue penthouse units, which feature Italian-crafted kitchens, floor-to-ceiling windows, custom-built wood closets, oak floors, high-end appliances and finishes, and custom window shades.
The 60-story rental building was completed last year by the Moinian Group. It has 1,116 market-rate apartments and 235 affordable units.
