Lopez bought The Whitman penthouse for $US20 million after her divorce from actor and singer Marc Anthony, which whom she shares two children, Emme and Max.
Lopez tried to sell the chic pad. Even after a price cut towards the end of the campaign, she had no luck, and has retained it.
A buyer with deep enough pockets can buy one of the apartments in the building, which is now on the market for $US13.75 million, the New York Post reports.
A resort-style Miami retreat
This Star Island paradise with water vistas was bought by Lopez and A-Rod in 2020, three years into their relationship, and 12 months before their split, for $US32.5 million.

The very private Mediterranean-style estate, in Miami, has a pool, a wine room, elevator across two levels, library, a cabana beside the pool, outdoor bar under cover and a dock.
Enormous water frontage meets the huge pool and al fresco entertaining area, with views across Biscayne Bay to the Miami city skyline.
A cute little LA cottage
Lopez and Rodriguez are the owners of a $US1.4 million cottage in Encino, an enclave of Los Angeles. The price of this one is modest compared to the cash splashed on other properties on their books.

Architectural Digest suggested the house, a single-level sweetie pie which they also purchased in 2020, could be an investment or a property for friends and relatives to stay in, given at the time they did the deal, the couple were mainly living on Star Island in Miami.
The sweet three-bedroom house was built in 1948 and had been treated to a sleek, minimalist renovation before the couple took the keys.
A whopping Bel Air mansion

The LA manor, which she snagged in 2016, has its own pub – yep! – and a cinema seating 30 people, plus a library, a 100-seat amphitheatre and a separate guest house.
Lopez’s Instagram followers will have occasionally caught a glimpse inside the colossal estate – she has previously posted video and pictures from the kitchen.
A traditional Hamptons getaway
For beach holidays, Lopez can hit the road to this Hamptons estate, which has a sauna, steam room, theatre, and pool and playground, set in oversized lawns.

The massive estate, in Water Mill, New York, is very private, set on its own cul-de-sac.
Lopez paid almost $US10 million for it nine years ago, and managed to get it for half the original asking price, Dirt reported.
The owners wanted $US19.5 million but it spent almost 800 days on the market, and they did the deal with Lopez for far less.
