Before Johnny Damon heads down to Tampa in two weeks for spring training, the formerly scraggly centerfielder needs to take care of his Manhattan living arrangements.
But instead of moving into a ritzy building where other Yankees dwell, the $52 million man is looking to join the beautiful people in celebrity-packed One Beacon Court.
On Feb. 3, Mr. Damonâ€™s offer was accepted on a $5.9 million apartment, according to a source with knowledge of the deal.
Located on the 39th floor of the Cesar Pelliâ€“designed Bloomberg tower (with interior finishes designed by Jacques Grange), Mr. Damonâ€™s apartment includes three bedrooms and two and a half baths, as well as a dining room, windowed kitchen, and full city and park views.
The mixed-use building serves as Bloomberg L.P. headquarters and includes 105 residences beginning on the 32nd floor.
