Staying put in NYC, Yankees’ Aaron Judge buys Chelsea penthouse

Gimme Shelter can exclusively report that Aaron Judge, the captain of the New York Yankees, and his wife Samantha Bracksieck have moved into a new house.

The famous outfielder and Bracksieck, according to our sources, have pᴜrchased a Manhattan penthouse at the Cortland. The great outfielder rejected off a $415 million Padres proposal to stay with the Yanks, agreeing to a nine-year deal worth $360 million in December.

The brand-new Related structure is located at 555 West 22nd Street in Chelsea.

According to our spies, the professional player, who hιt an American League-record 62 home runs in 2022, has been seen entering and exiting the building where he is reportedly designing his ideal home.

A 45-game on-base streak, the longest by a Yankee in the previous 19 seasons, was also broken on Thursday by No. 99.

Three levels of the 25-story structure are dedicated to penthouses that have not yet been put on the market. According to accounts, Judge bought one of those floors and is currently finishing it. For his 6-foot-7 frame, the 7,000 square foot space has lofty ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, marble fireplaces, and views of the Hudson River and the metropolitan skyline. Although the pᴜrchase price of the property has not yet been disclosed, two separate flats on the building’s 22nd level recently sold for a combined $40 million, according to StreetEasy – and there is only one buyer, our sources add.

(There is also no information yet on whether Judge selected apartment number 99.)

After agreeing to a record-breaking deal with the Yankees, Judge stated that he made his choice alongside Bracksieck, his high school sweetheart whom he will marry in 2021, and that “the decision that was in our hearts, which is we belong in New York, we belong in this city.” Olson Kundig and Robert A.M. Stern Architects created the structure. The listing mentions that the amenities, which were chosen by Related Life to resemble a private members’ club, include a gym, a pool, a concierge, and more. Related chose not to respond.

When calls were made to Page Odle, president of PSI Sports Management, a representative for Judge, no one answered.
