Less than a year after dropping $15.3 million on a trophy pad at 432 Park Avenue, J-Rod (J.Lo + A-Rod) has decided to put the sprawling, apartment back on the market. First spotted by the Post, the place is now asking $17.5 million. The news comes just five months after the couple put their considerably smaller apartment at 15 Central Park West on the rental market for $11,500 a month. Why are they selling so soon? Though three bedrooms and 4,000 square feet sounds large to most, a source told the Post that “They love the building, but when their kids are all together, it’s too small. They need something bigger for the family.”
The 36th-floor condo has a private elevator landing that opens to an elegant gallery.
The corner living/dining room is 29′ x 29′ and offers both north and east exposures with Central Park and skyline views. Though the furnishings aren’t included in the listing price, the Post hears that they can be purchased if a buyer is interested.
A custom kitchen has a center island, marble floors and counters, white lacquer and oak cabinets, and stainless steel Miele appliances.
The corner master suite has a dressing area, two luxurious bathrooms, and a full hallway of closets that leads to a media room. Both additional bedrooms also have en-suite baths.
The Post’s source said that Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez–who each have two children from previous marriages–are hoping to find their larger home downtown. J.Lo is also selling her duplex penthouse at the Whitman, a condo conversion at 21 East 26th Street, for $26,950,000. The singer-actress first bought the Nomad four-bedroom in 2014 for just over $20 million.
