Melo And LaLa Finally Find Some Comfy New Digs In New York

- By Bossip Staff

There’s no doubt that the Anthony’s have made some real estate agent VERY happy.

Carmelo and La La Anthony have snapped up a luxe penthouse duplex at the Hit Factory Condominium, the former recording studio where Stevie Wonder, Mick Jagger, Diana Ross and Notorious B.I.G. all laid down tracks.

The Knicks star and his reality-TV wife have already moved into the building at 421 W. 54th St., between Ninth and 10th avenues, sources say. The couple’s moving vans were spotted outside last week.

Melo and La La have inked a one-year lease at the address where John Lennon spent his final hours and Bruce Springsteen recorded “Born in the USA.” The studios were converted into a seven-story, 27-unit condo development, with six penthouse duplexes, in 2007.

Penthouses with private terraces at the Hit Factory rent for $14,900-$22,000 per month, according to, a real-estate Web site. Condos for sale go for $1 million to $4 million, the site says.

Real-estate brokers have been circling the Anthonys like hawks ever since Melo was traded to the Knicks in February. A citywide guessing game over where they’d land had them reportedly renting no fewer than four apartments on the West Side, at the Aldyn and the Ashley, according to other papers.

But now that they’ve finally found a home, the couple can get back to their busy schedules — or at least La La can, since the Knicks were eliminated from the playoffs. She’s been shooting her show, “La La’s Full Court Life,” for VH1, chronicling her move to New York. The show is a sequel to “La La’s Full Court Wedding.”

This actually looks like a very cool place to live. Not only for the convenience, but the address is part of music and entertainment history so it’s kind of fitting that a celebrity couple with the status of Melo and LaLa call it home. Congrats guys!


Here are a few pics of what the legendary condos look like:

    NYC and LA are the biggest real estate rip offs in America and probably the world. That little space is not worth all that money. I don’t blame them for only leasing and wish them luck finding a permanent home at a reasonable price.

    • hmm?

      Exactly! They’re going to wake up to loud taxis, rats at the front door, and did you see the outside of the apartment? I would just buy a mansion in the suburbs

    There goes the property values! Now all the white people will move out because they sure do not want to live around a family of gorilla Puertos. Can you imagine the horror when all of the Rican family members drop by for a visit?

    Lol your racism towards me is funny considering I never even mentioned my colour. How do you know I’m not some white woman looking down on you for your stupidity?

    Any person who can spew as much hate as you two are is obviously ugly inside and out.

    I’m not particularly a fan of Lala, but I can’t deny she is a beautiful woman. No colour is denied beauty and the sooner you learn that the sooner you will stop looking like fools.
