Lakers News: Carmelo Anthony offers NYC apartment for eye-popping price – All Lakers
Former Los Angeles Lakers forward Carmelo Anthony bought a condo in the Chelsea section of New York in 2015, about four years after his seven-year stint with the New York Knicks.
Anthony stayed with the Knicks through the 2016-17 season, but he bounced back a lot in the years that followed. He spent the 2017-18 season with the Oklahoma City Thunder and only played 10 games with the Houston Rockets in 2018-19. Melo failed to sign the following summer, but the Blazers called in November and Anthony proved he could still get buckets. He signed a minimum one-year contract with Los Angeles last season and averaged 13.3 PPG in 69 games.
Now, it looks like Anthony is ready to complete his break from New York. He put his 4,562-square-foot condo up for sale in 2020, but he couldn’t find a buyer. The apartment has now been fully renovated and is back on the market, listed at $12.5 million, according to Architectural Digestabout $1.5 million more than Melo paid seven years ago.
Listing agent Aaron Seawood of Triplemint says the renovations have significantly improved the home.

“The house now benefits from a complete refresh with a clearly defined flow and improvements ranging from an updated color scheme in the kitchen and selected spaces, polished stone throughout, designer lighting, oak floors solid white and quartered, and a custom wood slat wall in the master bedroom giving it a spa-like retreat feel.”
Anthony’s condo is on the fifth floor of a 2014 building designed by Cary Tamarkin.
You might think living in an apartment in New York is a cramped lifestyle, but that’s only for regular people. Look at this description of Carmelo’s house:
A private elevator provides access to the unit, where 10-foot-high ceilings rise above expansive gallery walls that once displayed the former New York Knick’s comprehensive art collection. The sleek white kitchen features Calacatta Gold marble and Viking appliances, including a six-burner stove, two dishwashers, and a wine cooler. Next to the kitchen, the media room houses a bar, a cigar cellar and a 500-bottle wine cellar.
Yeah, 4,500 square feet and 10-foot ceilings probably isn’t what you and I think of when we think of an apartment in New York. All it takes is $12.5 million and you could be Carmelo Anthony’s next condo owner!
