JLo finally sells Manhattan penthouse after seven years

Jennifer Lopez has sold her luxurious penthouse overlooking Madison Square Park, Manhattan, after several years of market fluctuation.

The duplex, located in The Whitman at 21 E. 26th Street, was last listed for US$24.99 million, although the final sale price and the buyer’s identity remain undisclosed.

Originally purchased by Lopez in 2014 for US$20.1 million, the property was initially put up for sale in 2017 with an asking price of US$26.95 million, according to the New York Post.

Despite its high-profile location and unique features, the penthouse has experienced several market entries and exits without significant changes in its asking price, as per records from StreetEasy.

The Whitman, a Neo-Georgian structure dating back to 1924, is known for its exclusivity and high-profile residents, including Chelsea Clinton and her family.

The building, which contains only four apartments, has also housed celebrities like NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon.

This sale comes amidst Lopez’s active search for a new residence in the Upper East Side with her husband, Ben Affleck.

The couple was recently seen exploring potential homes, hinting at their continued investment in New York real estate.

The penthouse itself is a showcase of luxury, spanning 608sq m with four bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms.

It features nearly 278sq m of outdoor terraces, including a croquet pitch and a putting green, complemented by a landscaped roof deck.

The interiors boast 12.5-foot-high ceilings, white oak flooring, and sophisticated design details like a skylight and Palladian-style windows in the great room.

A chef’s kitchen, complete with a breakfast bar and dual wine fridges, adds to the opulence, alongside a media room and multiple spa-like bathrooms.

Building amenities enhance the allure, offering a full-time doorman, a grand lobby, and private storage, ensuring both luxury and privacy for its exclusive clientele.
