“South Florida by the numbers” is a web feature that catalogs the most notable, quirky and surprising real estate statistics.

We do love our sports here at South Florida by the numbers headquarters. And September is an especially fun time of the year: the Marlins are winding down, the Dolphins and Hurricanes have just gotten started, and the Heat and Panthers check into the game next month. With that in mind, we are eternally fascinated by news about local celebrity athletes and their Miami real estate skills. Who will dunk on the competition this season, and who will get sacked? Let’s explore in this month’s “South Florida by the numbers.”

$32.5 million: Initial asking price for Heat legend Dwyane Wade’s 14,000 square foot North Bay Road estate in Miami Beach, just listed this month. Wade originally purchased the house in 2010 for $10.46 million. [TRD]

More than 15,000: Number of apartment units in the portfolio of the corporate umbrella firm led by former Yankees slugger, ESPN analyst, and J-Lo fiancé Alex Rodriguez. The company focuses on value-add multifamily real estate in secondary markets across the country, and will soon be moving from Coral Gables to Coconut Grove. [TRD]

3,800: Interior square footage of Major League Baseball Hall-of-Famer Mike Piazza’s new unit at the Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach. The former Met (and Marlin — for only five games) paid $5.6 million for the three-bedroom unit, and $585,000 for a one-bedroom “guest suite” elsewhere in the building. [MansionGlobal]

$2.3 million: Purchase price for Venus and Serena Williams’ Palm Beach Gardens mansion, which they built in 2000, and sold in March. Last year, Serena also sold a 2.4-acre vacant lot in Jupiter for $6 million, having purchased the land for $4.12 million. [TRD]

57: Once completed, number of stories at Missoni Baia in Edgewater, where Argentine soccer star Joaquin Correa put a condo under contract earlier this year. He will be joined by Colombian soccer star Miguel Borja, a player with the Brazilian club Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras. [TRD]

49(ers): NFL team of South Florida native (and 2019 second overall draft pick) Nick Bosa, who recently purchased a $1.24 million unit at 30 Thirty North Ocean in Ft. Lauderdale. The defensive lineman played four years at St. Thomas Aquinas High School, and joined his older brother Joey in the NFL this season. [SunSentinel]
