New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis is taking up residency in a Hell’s Kitchen luxury tower,reports the Real Deal. The 7'3" rookie sensation has rented not one but three apartments within Moinian Group’s 71-story tower, Sky, located at 605 West 42nd Street (it’s also NYC’s largest rental tower). Porzingis allegedly snatched up a corner penthouse for himself that was asking $8,000 a month and rented the other apartments for his two brothers.

Perhaps it was Sky’s NBA regulation-sized basketball court, said to have been designed by Porzingis’s teammate Carmelo Anthony, that appealed to him. Or maybe other amenities like the indoor and outdoor pools, billiards room, private green space, and glorious views of the Hudson River helped sealed the deal.
