Mets' Piazza Offers South Beach Condo
Mike Piazza may have retired from baseball this year, but he's been busy in Florida real estate. The former New York Mets catcher has listed his condominium in Miami Beach's South Beach neighborhood for $4.9 million, soon after buying an eight-bedroom house for $10 million in the same city. The three-bedroom condo, with terraces and panoramic views, is in the Murano at Portofino development on South Beach's southernmost tip.
Mr. Piazza, 39, bought the 3,300-square-foot condo "raw" for $1.75 million when it was built in 2002 and designed it in a contemporary style with limestone floors. The building has a pool, tennis courts, a gym, a concierge and access to a private beach club.
The new house of the 12-time All-Star and his wife, Alicia, a former Playboy Playmate he married in 2005, is 9,600 square feet. The property has 100 feet on the water in the Sunset Islands neighborhood. The couple also own an apartment in New York. Jill Eber and Jill Hertzberg, of The Jills of Coldwell Banker, have the listing.
