NEW YORK - Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez, who is leaving his 30,000 pounds-a-month rental bachelor pad at swanky 15 Central Park West, is set to move in a 6-million-dollar apartment in a building embroiled in a bitter dispute with the state Attorney General’s Office.
Sources say that A-Rod loves plush 15 CPW but that the pad is not “private enough.” It was up for sale while he was renting it and potential buyers and gawkers were disturbing him by poking around too much.
Now he has made a deal on a 35th-floor, five-bedroom condo at The Rushmore, a new building at 80 Riverside Blvd. on 64th Street with twin 41-story towers and Hudson River views.
The building, which is built by Extell Development, include amenities like a fitness center with indoor pool and a surrounding park with a nearby baseball field.
“We are thrilled to have Alex and his family buying at the Rushmore. He loved the building, the park and the water views, but we think that the clincher was the baseball field outside the front door,” the New York Post quoted Extell as confirming the A-Rod deal. (ANI)
