Yankee Ichiro Suzuki Finds New Apartment in Harlem
Since Ichiro Suzuki moved out of his Upper East Side home, he has spent a good deal of time searching for a new place. Now his search has ended at 111 Central Park North, the NYPost reports. The building is a new construction in Central Harlem, where Malcolm X Boulevard crosses Central Park North/110th Street. The full-floor apartment was offered for sale or for rent. While the sale price was $9 million, Ichiro took the rent deal for $23,500 a month. That’s about half of what he paid at the Laurel, which was $40,000 a month for only 2,778 square feet. His new home has a whopping 5,400 square feet. Whatever he pays, money shouldn’t be a problem since he signed a new two-year, $13 million contract with the Yankees in December. Ichiro will also save a lot of time traveling to work because his new home at 110th street is conveniently close to Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.
Here are the relevant features of his new pad: Six bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, 100 feet of terrace space, and stunning views of Central Park, Midtown, Fifth Avenue and the George Washington Bridge. It’s on the 17th floor, has an incredibly large chef’s kitchen, a gigantic living room, and three terraces. Looking at the floor plan of the nine-room apartment is like looking at a labyrinth. It was recently renovated and contains pretty much everything Ichiro could have wished for—gallery, media room, wood floors, washer/dryer, home office, floor-to-ceiling windows, and more.
111 Central Park North is a full-service building that offers its residences a garage, a large fitness room, a courtyard, a rooftop deck, and a bike room.
Looks like Ichiro finally found his dream home. Congratulations!
