There was an application to demolish the 1.25-acre property that was initiated in September. Cristan Fadal told the outlet that it's possible that more than one home will be built on the lot.

The residential demolition permit application is still pending, as of September 23, according to an operations manager at the city council.

It will mark the end of the waterfront estate that sold in May 2021.

The highest price residential sale in the history of the Tampa Bay region was handled by the listing agent. The transaction history for the area shows that the record is still standing.

Jeter and his family lived in the mansion for almost six years before moving to Miami.

The New York Times reported in February that Jeter spent two years constructing a mansion on three adjoining lots. The house is one of the largest in the neighborhood.

Hank Steinbrenner made a comment about the baseball team's performance when he said that some players were too busy building mansions and doing other things to focus on winning.

In September of last year, the family moved into a condo in Coconut grove, which is an affluent neighborhood. He left his position in March.

The representative did not reply to the request.

Tom Brady and his wife, Gisele Bndchen, leased the home in 2020.

Brady moved to the area with his family after signing a two-year contract with the Buccaneers.

Though it's not publicly known how much Brady paid in rent, a real estate agent told the Tampa Bay Times in April 2020 that it could cost "$75,000 a month or more."

Brady said in an interview that he had privacy concerns because of the accessibility of the home.

I am a bit of a shy person. Brady said that his house is where he can relax. There's a lot of boats that have pulled up in front of the house. Brady's representative didn't reply to Insider's request.

The neighbors remember what it was like to deal with the constant stream of fans on the street for both Brady and Jeter.

Bryan Truex said that they used to park in his driveway to go to his house.

Fans have been showing up for one last look at the property in case the demolition happens.

Rob Nicholson said he heard that the mansion was going to be demolished. I wanted a final look at it. I am a fan of Tom Brady and the New York Yankees.

The property was previously listed for $29 million. The Bradys still lived there.

Stephen Gay, a listing agent, told the New York Times that the Bradys were aware that the Jeters were going to sell the mansion.

The property was sold for $22.50 million, which is $6.5 million less than the original asking price.

David Koche is listed on the warranty deed as the current owner of the property. Koche did not reply.

The property is surrounded by a six foot high wall.
