In the midst of the NBA playoffs, Albert has listed his terraced Manhattan residence for $16.5 million, quite a few dollars more than the $2.393 million he paid for the place back in 1996, according to Curbed.
The apartment is one of 12 units in the desirable Columbus Circle building, and its listing details warn prospective buyers to beware of all the amenities this 3,500-square-foot gem provides, including the 1,500-square-foot terrace with a retractable awning that gives the apartment a huge boost for entertaining and enjoyment.
In addition, the lower level offers an eat-in chef's kitchen finished with top-line appliances. There's a mahogany paneled library complete with guest suite.
The upper level features a luxurious master bedroom suite with a stunning 180-degree view that
captures the southern midtown Manhattan skyline, the Hudson River and George Washington Bridge. There are 2 master suites, one of which opens into an exercise room.
In addition, the building is a full-service, white-glove condominium in the heart of the Upper West Side, delivering residents to the doorsteps of such notable NYC spots as Lincoln Center and Central Park.
As for Albert, the 72-year-old native New Yorker remains one of the most seasoned broadcasters of sports in the U.S., with decades of work as the voice of the New York Knicks, Nets and NBA.
