Though they recently dropped $15 million on an apartment at 432 Park Avenue, the tallest residential building in the Western Hempishere, power couple Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have reportedly been shacking up in a smaller rental at the equally impressive 15 Central Park West. The celebrity-filled building is NYC’s most expensive condo, but what really makes this juicy is that A-Rod was allegedly banned from the residence for hosting several hookers while renting there in 2014. Perhaps the board feels he’s matured over the years, as he and J-Lo have secretly been renting a one-bedroom there for the past year, and with the lease expiring on September 1st (and the pair likely getting ready to make the move into 432) it’s now up for rent asking $11,500 a month.
The apartment is just over 1,000 square feet and has a living/dining room with a west-facing terrace (this means no Central Park views), a top-of-the-line kitchen with a breakfast bar and washer/dryer, and a large bedroom suite.
Their new home will be a bit of a step up. It’s 4,000 square feet and takes up half the 36th floor of 432 Park. It has three bedrooms, its own elevator, and a custom-designed eat-in kitchen. Sources tell the Post that “they’ve already been spotted working out at the gym there, and that Rodriguez has been holding meetings in the boardroom.”
So all around it looks like the real estate game has been a home run for A-Rod. Especially considering he tried back in 2016 to get back into 15 CPW with then-girlfriend Anne Wojcicki. As for J-Lo, she’s been trying for almost a year to sell her gorgeous duplex penthouse in Nomad’s Whitman condo. She bought the home in 2014 for $20.16 million and now has it listed for $27 million.
