Eli Manning’s patience trying to offload his Hoboken condo certainly paid off, as the Postreports that it’s sold for $3.55 million–the biggest condo sale in the city’s history. The Giants quarterback first listed the waterfront spread at the Hudson Tea Building three years ago for $5.2 million, but after failing to find any takers, he put it up as an $18,000/month rental the following spring. Manning currently lives with his wife, Abby McGrew, and their three daughters in the more suburban Summit, NJ. He also dropped $8.5 million on a beachfront Hamptons mansion last year.
Manning lived in the Hoboken condo from 2008 to 2016, when the family decided they needed more space. But at 3,550 square feet, a combination of three units, the apartment is definitely not tiny. And with a southeast corner location, it benefits from gorgeous views of the Hudson River and NYC skyline.
Though the home is quite modern, it has more rustic details like exposed brick walls and wooden, beamed ceilings. The Hudson Tea Building was built in 1913 as the home of the Lipton Tea company.
The kitchen has cabinet space that stretches to the ceiling, as well as a breakfast nook.
The home has three bedrooms total, two of which are located in the “guest wing,” along with a playroom/office, two full bathrooms, and a laundry area.
The master suite also has an adjacent study and a walk-in closet/dressing room.
Former Tea Building residents have include ex-Giants star Jeremy Shockey, boxer Arturo Gatti, and ex-NJ governor and ex-senator Jon Corzine. The record-setting sale steals the top spot from a $3.3 million sale in 2015.
