New York Yankee captain Aaron Judge has bought an apartment at a brand new luxury condo in Chelsea, possibly his home for at least the next nine years. According to the New York Post, the American League home run leader bought a condo at The Cortland at 555 West 22nd Street, a tower designed by Robert A.M. Stern near the Hudson River waterfront.

Judge, who hit 62 home runs last season and set a new American League record, agreed in December to a nine-year deal with the Bronx Bombers worth $360 million.

Sources told the Post that Judge, along with his wife Samantha Bracksieck, bought one of the penthouses found on three levels of the 25-story building. These units have not been marketed publicly yet, but the Post reports two units sold together for $40 million. According to the sources, the baseball giant is currently “building it out” to create a dream home.

The Cortland is the first collaboration between Robert A.M. Stern Architects and Seattle-based Olson Kundig. SLCE is the architect of record.

Developed by Related Companies, the Cortland’s facade features a mix of red brick, metal, and RAMSA-favorite limestone, with over one million handmade and hand-laid bricks to give it a historic vibe, as 6sqft previously reported.

Amenities include a huge health club with a 75-foot lap pool and private yoga and fitness studio, a pilates studio, a court for squash and basketball, and the “Crow’s Nest” lounge which features a virtual sports gaming experience.

There’s also a private rooftop terrace with seating and spots to grill. For the younger residents, the building offers a double-height playroom, a game room, and a kid-friendly pool.

Another privacy perk for residents who happen to be in the limelight include a tucked-away 24-hour-staffed brick motor court that is connected to on-site parking.

Sales launched last April for the building’s 144 residences. According to CityRealty, there are 13 units currently listed, ranging from a $2,750,000 one-bedroom to a $25,000,000 five-bedroom home.
