Alex Rodriguez buys pricey condo

Yankees super slugger and Miami resident Alex Rodriguez is going bayfront in his hometown. Rodriguez has bought a 3,200-square-foot penthouse atop the GranParaiso, a 53-story condo in Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood being developed by the Related Group. He’ll have plenty of sporty neighbors; others who have bought in the Paraiso complex include DJ and music producer David Guetta, Barcelona-born tennis star Arantxa Sanchez Vicario and San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili. They won’t have any trouble staying in shape.

Amenities at the four-tower, 10-acre planned community include a 100-foot pool, tennis courts, outdoor yoga and Pilates room, fitness center, spa and bowling lanes. In less virtuous moments, they can indulge at the Michael Schwartz restaurant and grab a smoke at the cigar bar. Penthouse units run $4 million and up. No word on whether Rodriguez will actually live in the condo. He’s also building a home in South Miami-Dade.

But he won’t have to decide for a while: The building is due for completion in 2018, after his current contract with the Yankees ends. A-Rod, as he’s commonly known, is making a comeback after a year’s suspension for his role in a performance-enhancing drug scandal. Earlier this season, he became the 29th player in Major League history to hit 3,000 hits. Currently he stands at 3062 career hits, with 686 home runs.
