Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen Will Be Moving

Vanity Fair // Aug 02, 2016

It must be hard, if you were Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen (yes, already this is a preposterous thought experiment), to restrain yourself from just snapping up a property in every single place you visited that seemed at all appealing. (“Aw, this is a nice town,” Gisele might say, as they drive through the countryside. “Should we buy a house in it?” we imagine Tom responding, blithely.) With the enormous resources they have, issuing restraint must be difficult.


So that makes news of their recent real-estate purchase somewhat surprising, and impressive. Per Page Six, the pair have snapped up a “$20 million-plus” apartment in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood (the building—designed by Robert A.M. Stern—overlooks the Hudson River). Now, while Tribeca is, of course, quite chic—fellow celebrity residents in the neighborhood include Taylor Swift, Bradley Cooper, and Jennifer Lawrence—and the apartment is reportedly 5,000 square feet, and comes with a “sprawling terrace” and “offers stunning views,” and while the building is outfitted with a “82-foot lap pool,” as well as studios for cycling, yoga, and pilates, it is not, it turns out, as “aggressive” a purchase as the pair might have made. No, the Post reports that the pair “modestly” did not decide to purchase the “top $65 million penthouse in the building.”


So that means there is some other occupant in this building (which also is attractive to the pair due to its “covered porte-cochère entrance” for residents, per Page Six) that is living in the $65 million penthouse, who could theoretically run into Tom Brady on the elevator and say, with a wry grin, “Hey, got enough space in your pad down there?” as a “joke,” and theoretically have the grounds for making that sort of jab (though, anyone choosing to even so much as tease Brady or Bündchen is perhaps not the canniest of individuals).


Brady and Bündchen currently have a New York apartment in the Flatiron district, but will reportedly be giving up that spot once the new Tribeca apartment is finished undergoing construction, in 2018.
