Everyone knows about the perfect pair, J-Lo and A-Rod, and how successful they are. However, most people don’t know how the pair became so successful in the first place.
Before taking a tour of the very pricey home in the world’s tallest apartment building, it’s important to take a step back and look at the owners’ history as a world-famous couple…
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have been in a wonderful relationship for only two years. Even though they’ve been together for a relatively short time, they already feel like a couple that has been married for decades.
Alex even goes as far as to take selfies near her at her workplace, trying to be her biggest fanboy. But how did these two get so close together in the first place?
Way back in 2005, Jennifer was with her ex-husband Marc Anthony enjoying a baseball game. It was the New York Mets versus Alex’s team, the Yankees. Little did Jennifer know, this one baseball game was going to change her life forever…
At this time, Alex was also married to someone else. When seeing him bat, Jennifer saw something gleam within his eyes as the ball hurdled towards him. She knew right away that this man screamed determination.
After a decade, J-Lo was enjoying her time walking through Beverly Hills when she saw someone familiar. Jennifer admitted, “I almost yelled out ‘Alex’, but I am the shyest person when it comes to things like that.” She almost considered continuing her stroll instead of talking to him…
Jennifer said, “I could literally have just walked away but I walk over and tap him on the shoulder and say ‘Hey’… It was just one of those things where you feel compelled to do, something you wouldn’t normally do.”
When Alex turned around to see who tapped his shoulder, he was pleasantly surprised and excited to talk to her again. He knew that he liked her, but he wasn’t sure what he should say to her…
After quick thinking, Alex blurted out that she was beautiful and wanted to go on a date with her. Jennifer wanted to faint right then and there. It took her a few seconds to completely process what he just said…
Both were extremely nervous on their first date together, but they also had a certain thrill that they’ve never felt before. They knew that the life ahead of them was going to be treasured.
Even though they considered each other boyfriend and girlfriend, they weren’t quick to announce their relationship. In fact, they were hesitant to let the public know of anything they were doing together…
It wasn’t until March 8, 2017, that their relationship officially came out to the public. It was a new relationship that promised a lot of love and happiness, and everyone was excited.
“It’s obvious, we’ve been having a great time,” laughed A-Rod in an interview with the Cosmopolitan. “She’s an amazing girl and one of the smartest human beings I’ve ever met and also an incredible mother.”
After the day of their revelation, J-Lo and A-Rod started publicly going on dates more often. They even went to the city of love, Paris, where they visited the Louvre and had all sorts of fun.
Jennifer said “I understand him in a way that I don’t think anyone else could, and he understands me in a way that no one else could ever… We both had ups and downs and challenges in our 30s and by our 40s we’d both been through so much. And more importantly than anything, we had both done a lot of work on ourselves.”
After a long time of thinking, the pair decided to invest in a New York penthouse. However, this isn’t just any normal home. It’s in the world’s tallest apartment building, and they bought it for $15 million…
Of course, an apartment worth that much money must be that expensive for a reason. It has a list of many different things to do; believe me when I say it’s a very long list…
The apartment has a floor area of 4,000 square feet, more than four times the average size of apartments in the U.S. The address of the tallest apartment building it’s inside is 432 Park Avenue.
As for the rooms, the house includes four and a half bathrooms and three bedrooms. That by itself is rare to see in apartments. Of course, it also has amazing views of the city from wherever you look.
The house has an indoor swimming pool, where someone could relax or practice swimming. It even has extensive windows and aloft ceilings, making it the perfect place for pool parties.
It also has its own exclusive movie theater. One major thing that makes this classic theater different from normal theaters besides it being private is the fact that the owners are also free to play whatever movie they want. No tickets, no specific times, and no paying for movie snacks.
Room For Peace
There is also another room completely dedicated for massaging and relaxing, as if the indoor pool wasn’t enough already. After looking through these rooms, the price is starting to make more sense.
The hallway where people enter also leaves its first impressions. It has shiny wooden floors and a white storage space to compliment the walls. Oh, and don’t forget about the full bookshelves.
J-Lo and A-Rod even use their own workout room regularly; after all, the couple is known to capitalize on fitness. Complete with treadmills, exercise machines, and lots of dumbbells, they are sure to stay fit.
Of course, one vital room that leaves an impression in all houses is the living room. Designed to be symmetrical, it makes a great place for multiple people to relax, talk, and hang out together.
Elevator And Garage
They have their own private elevator for when they feel too tired from working out to use the stairs. But it doesn’t end there; they also have their own garage accommodations to avoid the hassle of finding a parking spot.
The dining area is another important room that people focus on more. This one has a dark backdrop to the side of a large window, creating a perfect contrast for people to enjoy their food.
Since Jennifer is a very busy woman who prioritizes work over everything else, she also has her very own business room. With a very elegant design and no distractions, she is sure to be productive there.
Real Estate Company
Which extremely talented group do we have to praise for making this utopia real? Macklowe Properties, a development group that made the UN Plaza, Metropolitan Tower, and many other beautiful buildings in New York City.
House On Market
While this is a very beautiful home, J-Lo and A-Rod feel that now is the time to end the investment and sell it. After a year of them owning it, it is now back on the market for a mind-boggling $17.5 million.
Who’s Gonna Buy It?
As for who has the money and interest to buy the home from them, nobody knows. However, one thing can be drawn from this: this definitely won’t be the last time Jennifer and Alex invest in a home, as they’ve both done it many times before.
