He won’t be cashing any paychecks from the New York Yankees this year, but the embattled Major League Baseball superstar is still finding ways to get paid.
The currently suspended slugger has turned a small profit after flipping a luxury unit at the Mei Condominiums building in Miami Beach. The Wall Street Journal reports the sale of the condo closed last week for $2.575 million, with his sister, Sotheby’s International REALTOR® Arlene Susy Dunand, representing him in the deal.
He paid $2.1 million for the property last year and spent a considerable amount to update the unit, which included commissioning designer Briggs Edward Solomon to oversee a complete overhaul. The baller had asked $3.2 million when he first began shopping the unit in December, but eventually lowered the price to slightly less than $3 million in January.
The 1,725-square-foot floor plan has a modern, whitewashed design that includes hardwood flooring, custom contemporary finishes and a wall of windows overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. A modernized kitchen features custom cabinetry and top-tier appliances, such as an espresso maker and a wine cooler.
Additionally, the unit was outfitted with a number of smart-home features and flat-screen televisions. Outside, a long patio area faces the water.
Residents of the Mei Condominiums building are also granted access to a number of perks: valet parking, a private fitness facility, a pool and spa.
