When he’s not busy winning titles as the second-best tennis player in the world, Novak Djokovic is apparently quite the architecture aficionado. The Serbian athlete told the Wall Street Journal that he’s a big fan of Renzo Piano; earlier this year he bought a unit in Piano’s Miami beach project Eighty Seven Park, and he’s now gone into contract for two condos in the starchitect’s under-construction NYC venture 565 Broome SoHo, where sales launched this past September.

The 30-story, twin-tower Soho development, Piano’s first residential venture in the city, is expected to be completed in 2018. 565 Broome’s director of sales Stacy Spielman wouldn’t specify exactly which units Djokovic bought, but she did say they’re both two-bedroom units, more than 2,000 square feet, and on upper floors where prices start at $5.4 million. She also noted that they’re not adjacent, so combo plans aren’t on the table.

Interiors will have white oak floors, custom-designed white oak cabinetry and Balsatina lavastone countertops in the kitchen, and Calacatta Caldia marble slab walls and heated floors in the master bathrooms. Some units will also boast large private terraces with 25-foot private saltwater pools.

Of his recent purchases, Djokovic said, “I love the design of these two buildings and their location is fantastic. Both New York and Miami are on my travel list every year and it will be exciting to have a place to come back to.”
