Melo Drops Over $10 Million for Tamarkin’s High Line Condo

The Knicks may be having an abysmal run, but that’s not enough to stop Carmelo Anthony from scoring elsewhere. The NBA star is the newest owner of a unit in developer and architect Cary Tamarkin’s 508 West 24th Street.  The basketball star, together with his wife LaLa, picked up an $11 million, full-floor apartment at the High Line condo project, according to the New York Post. The apartments in Tamarkin’s 10-story building, which also includes a ground-floor retail space and a rooftop terrace, range from 2,000 to 3,300 square feet, as The Real Deal reported. Stribling Marketing Associates’ Millie Perry, Alexa Lambert and Cathy Taub had the listing. Melo, who was spotted checking out a penthouse at the Chelsea Enclave in October, will be able to use his new building’s gym — after he recovers from a knee injury — as well as a shared courtyard with a gas grill, the newspaper reported.
