The Bloomberg administration originally planned a stadium for the New York Jets at Hudson Yards. But instead of playing football there, Rob Gronkowski will be enjoying city views from his new apartment.
The Super Bowl champion tight end scored a new pad at Related’s 35 Hudson Yards for $7 million, the New York Post reported.
Though Gronkowski now plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom, 2,652-square-foot apartment will serve as his escape when he’s not snagging Tom Brady spirals.
“He was just here, supervising the furniture set-up,” a source told the Post.
Designed by David Childs of SOM, the building features interior designs by Tony Ingrao. The building also hosts a flagship Equinox fitness center and Equinox Hotel, SoulCycle, residents-only gym, playroom, business center, lounge and dining room and terrace with catering services.
The apartment itself has wide-plank oak floors and a windowed eat-in chef’s kitchen.
“It has always been on his bucket list to own property in New York City,” the source told the Post. “He’s here a lot in the offseason to relax and recharge.”[NYPost] — Sasha Jones
