Jennifer Lopez is still Jenny from the block, it’s just a new block, in a tony $22 million apartment, in a Manhattan building that includes such neighbors as Chelsea Clinton and NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon. But she may not be spending much time there.

Lopez may be negotiating an extended Las Vegas residency similar to deals by Britney Spears and Celine Dion.

Various reports claim she’ll be performing at Caesars Palace or at Planet Hollywood. Shania Twain has been performing at Ceasar’s. Spears’ is scheduled to play Planet Hollywood into 2015.

In the meantime, Lopez will be able to kick back at a new $22 million pad in Manhattan’s trendy Chelsea neighborhood, both the New York Post and The Daily News reported today (Oct. 22).

The massive 6,540-square-foot pad has enough room for a private dance studio and then some because of it’s unique layout. The apartment occupies the top floor of a four-story building that contains one unit per floor.

Lopez’s apartment also has exclusive access to 3,000-square-feet of outdoor space on the roof. But she won’t have much privacy outside. Adjacent buildings are much higher and banks of windows look down on her space.

The apartment has a clear view of Madison Square Park.

Inside are four bedrooms and six bathrooms with top-end finishes throughout, according to listing agent Douglas Elliman.

The bathrooms are lined with imported Italian marble and the main rooms are finished in a bright-white, minimalist style. The building also has a gym and apartments are only reachable by a key-operated elevator with private landings.

Hopefully JLo is tech saavy because the building is wired with computer controlled heating, lighting and other systems.
