Bronx native and superstar J.Lo is selling her duplex penthouse in the Whitman, a luxurious condominium conversion at 21 East 26th Street, for $26.95 million. Lopez, who currently stars in the television show “Shades of Blue,” first purchased the Nomad pad in 2014 for $20.16 million. As the New York Times reported, the four-bedroom apartment overlooks Madison Square Park, spans 6,540 square feet on the building’s top two floors, and includes an additional 3,000 square feet of outdoor space spread across four sprawling terraces. Though Jenny from the Block will be departing (and taking her Grammy pictured above with her!), the next owner can still hobnob with the building’s other A-listers Chelsea Clinton and NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon.
The spacious penthouse boasts high-end finishes, 12’4″ ceilings, wide plank rift oak floors and Italian marble slab bathrooms.
There’s a formal dining area, a living room and a kitchen that has stainless-steel Miele appliances (including that massive wine fridge!) and white custom cabinets.
Through three sets of French doors, a south-facing terrace can be found with views of the MetLife clock tower and the Flatiron Building.
Two separate staircases lead to the upper level, which is where the master suite and media room are located.
The master has a seating area, two marble baths, and a windowed dressing room. Three spacious terraces can be found on this level, with the master suite looking over 27th Street and the media room looking out onto Madison Square Park.
The Whitman Building was first built in 1924 as a showroom and later converted into four large condos in 2013. Stretching an entire block between 26th and 27th Streets, the units measure as some of the longest in the city. Amenities include a 24-hour doorman, a private, keyed elevator, and fitness center.
