Latin crooner Ricky Martin is renting a $32,500 a month, five-bedroom condominium unit at the Lucida building on East 85th Street and Lexington Avenue while in New York to play Argentine Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara in the Broadway revival of “Evita,” the New York Post reported.
Martin, who previously owned condos in both the Time Warner Center and 40 Bond Street, also toured the Upper East Side’s Empire and Isis buildings on his search for a temporary pad for himself and twin sons Matteo and Valentino, the Post said.
Dennis Mangone and Pablo Alfaro of Prudential Douglas Elliman represented Martin in the lease deal.
As previously reported, Martin is currently trying to sell his 9,491-square-foot mansion in Miami Beach, for which he’s asking $12.5 million. Rapper Jay-Z and wife Beyonce were said to have checked out the seven-bedroom home while home shopping last week. [Post, 1st item]
