The Wall Street Journal reported the actress and the retired baseball player had picked up the unit for $15.3 million in 2018.

The couple’s 4,000-square-foot pad with three beds and 4.5 baths is on the 36th floor. In addition to views of Central Park and the city skyline, it offers an eat-in kitchen, living and dining room, a corner master suite, and a library.

According to the New York Post, the couple were sold on the luxury amenities, including private parking, a personal chef and resident dining room serving three meals a day, a gym with yoga and Pilates, and private elevators.

Lopez is also selling a penthouse apartment she bought in 2014 for $20 million. She recently relisted the 6,000-square-foot unit with 3,000 square feet of terraces overlooking Madison Square Park for a hefty $26.95 million.
In California, Lopez picked up a property with 8 acres in Bel Air in 2016; that had a price tag of almost $40 million, according to Variety.
And just months after the couple had purchased the New York City love nest that’s now up for sale, A-Rod listed his Hollywood Hills home for $6.5 million.
