“Adios” is what he would like to say to this condominium.

Singer Ricky Martin has reduced the asking price of his apartment at 170 East End Avenue by $1.3 million, or 15 percent.

Martin put unit 7AB on the market for $8.4 million in August last year, but has now reduced it to $7.1 million, or $2,256 per square foot, Mansion Global reported. The singer and “The Voice Australia” judge paid $5.9 million for the 3,140-square foot pad in 2012, according to property records cited by the website.

Designed by architect Peter Marino, the apartment has four bedrooms, four bathrooms and a study. The eat-in kitchen has Sub-Zero, Wolf and Miele appliances and the 10-foot floor-to-ceiling windows provide both north and south exposures, according to the listing. Douglas Elliman’s Dennis Mangone, known for representing celebrity clients, is marketing the condo.

Demand for properties in Yorkville was expected to jump following the opening of the Second Avenue subway station, according to the website.

Last year, Martin, best known for the songs “Living La Vida Loca,” “Adios” and “She Bangs,” paid $13.5 million for a 11,300-square-foot home in Beverly Hills. [MansionGlobal] Miriam Hall
