Jennifer Lopez And Alex Rodriguez Are Selling Their NYC Penthouse After Just Ten Months

By on January 22, 2019 in ArticlesCelebrity Homes

That didn't take too long. After just ten months in what the New York City penthouse, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are looking to sell the 432 Park Avenue penthouse at $17.5 million in search of "grander digs downtown," as reported by Page Six. But don't worry, the sale doesn't mean anything is amiss in J-Rod Land.

Instead, a source close to the couple explains that the relatively hasty sale doesn't reflect any dissatisfaction with the penthouse, but more the fact that with two kids each the space doesn't really reflect their long term needs. The source explains:

"They love the building, but when their kids are all together, it's too small. They need something bigger for the family … They love the services, the amenities — they use the gym, they use the boardroom for meetings. But for the size of their family, they need something much larger."

Speaking of those amenities, here's a YouTube video highlighting the deluxe services and perks offered by the building, including a screening room, pool room, spa, sauna, swimming pool, and even a library. Check it out:

They're asking $17.5 million for the property, a slight bump over the $15 million they paid for it back in March of last year. And if you're a prospective buyer who loves the idea of keeping J-Lo and A-Rod's furniture for yourself, more good news: The source says that "it's magnificently furnished. The furniture is not included [in the listed price], but if someone would like to buy it furnished, they can."

Interestingly, this isn't the only property Lopez is trying to sell at the present moment. She's also unloading another luxury penthouse located at the Whitman building on East 26th Street overlooking Madison Square Park. She bought the penthouse back in 2014 for a reported $20.16 million, and now she's looking for $27 million – all the better to finance whatever sprawling family home she and Rodriguez have in mind.
