With deflatgate behind him and another Super Bowl win under his belt, Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady is looking to upgrade apartments. The Post reports that he and supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen may be trading up from the 11th floor spread at Tribeca‘s 70 Vestry Street they bought for $20 million in August to a $35 million unit on the floor above. Why? The speculation is that Brady wants to be on floor 12, the same number as his jersey. Perhaps it’s pure ego or superstition since his jersey was recently stolen after the big game. Either way, the Robert A.M. Stern-designed building won’t be complete until next year, so the power couple has some time to make a final Hail Mary.
The unit in question–12N–was last listed two months ago for $29.5 million. It has five bedrooms, a 1,900-square-foot terrace, a 31-foot corner living room with a fireplace, and beautiful Hudson River views. Their current unit is also five bedrooms and a similar square footage, but doesn’t have the outdoor space.
Sources told the Post that Brady and Bündchen were attracted to the building’s privacy since it has a covered porte-cochère entrance. The uber-health conscious pair was also likely drawn to the host of amenities, including an 82-foot lap pool, sauna and steam room, and cycling, yoga, and pilates studios.
There was some surprise that they didn’t opt for the building’s $65 million penthouse, but the couple also owns mansions in Los Angeles and Brookline, MA, as well as a large apartment in One Madison that they’ve been renting out for $40,000 a month for the past few years.
