A-Rod buys $ 9.9M co-op after ‘begging’ for board approval


He almost couldn’t swing it.

Alex Rodriguez shelled out $ 9.9 million for the Central Park West cooperative – after initially being refused by the building board, the Post may report.

According to sources familiar with the transaction, the former Yankee and businessman “made a big mess about it” and “begged” for the unit until they got it.

“He almost didn’t accept and begged the board to accept him,” one insider explained to The Post.

“He was angry and then he said ‘yes’.”

According to a separate source, the board did not want A-Rod’s “reputation”.

“This is a typical white-glove Central Park West co-op,” the source said. “No one with celebrity status wants to live here. That’s not what they’re going for. ”

Rodriguez, 46, bought the three-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom unit from real estate developer Jordan Vogel. Vogel’s representatives did not respond to a post request for comment. Rodriguez’s representatives did not immediately return a request for comment.

Records show that the 42-year-old Vogel initially bought the second-floor unit for $ 6.75 million.

Pictures show the palace building on the west entrance of Central Park, directly across the street from the Natural History Museum.

“This is the crown jewel of legendary architect Emery Roth, and is one of the most prestigious addresses in the entire city,” the list says.

Rodriguez insisted on board approval for the unit despite a clear flaw.

“It’s shocking that they want a place on the second floor. It’s not private. I think it’s a big mistake,” the source said.

In the past, Rodriguez was embroiled in a scam when the photographer was taken Photo of him rogue Shot through the window of his NYC penthouse, on the toilet of his bathroom, he shared with former Jennifer Lopez at the time.

“I’m definitely not suing,” Rodriguez Said in June 2019. “For one thing, I’m going to do my best there! I wasn’t ready for the film. That’s what it is … I need to invest in some good blinds, and I think I will.”

However, according to insiders, Rodriguez was not distracted by the level of the new corner unit and “liked the updates” in Beresford.
