Ichiro Suzuki, a professional baseball player for the Miami Marlins who hit the 3,000-hit mark last year, listed his downtown LA condo for sale for $2.349 million. It’s also simultaneously listed for lease for $7,000 a month. Suzuki is playing both sides of the field in an effort to see what kind of takers he can get.
Suzuki purchased the unit about 10 years ago for $2.2 million, so not much of a profit would be made should he sell it close to his asking price.
The unit is located in the Biscuit Company Lofts building, which was originally built in the 1920s as a factory and recently transformed into a modern live/work space. The 2,030-square-foot condo still holds it original industrial feel thanks to its exposed brick walls and ductwork.
The open floor plan includes two floors of living space, including one bedroom, a large common living area, and a modern all-stainless steel kitchen with an industrial-sized fridge. Light hardwood flooring lines the entire space. The soaring ceilings create an incredibly light and bright interior space.
The loft-style condo’s single bedroom is located on the second level that is accessed via a floating staircase, as is the master bathroom. There are another 1.5 bathrooms on the lower level. There is also a separate laundry area with a stacked washer and dryer.
Perhaps one of the most impressive features of the condo is the private 1,000-square-foot rooftop patio that provides breathtaking 360-degree views of the city all the way to the Pacific, which can also be enjoyed inside through the oversized windows.
Building amenities include a modern lap pool, a double-height gym room, and a fire pit. The unit also comes with two parking spaces.
In 2015, the Japanese-born baseball player moved out of his Central Park condo in New York after leaving the Yankees in favor of the Miami Marlins. The full-floor unit has 6-bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, 5,400 square feet of living space, and 360-degree views of Central Park.
The 43-year-old ex-Yankee clinched the American League battle title twice and has made 10 appearances in the annual All-Star Game over his impressive 16-year career in the majors.
