The muscular Material Girl won't have far to go for a workout.
Madonna is adding a floor to her new $32 million Upper East Side triple-wide townhouse, and it will be mostly taken up by a gym, city plans show.
The addition will add 1,614 square feet to the East 81st Street mansion, bringing the total square footage to 13,847, not including the cellar. The home also has a 3,000-square-foot garden.
She is also tearing up the existing bedrooms and baths, creating a new master suite on the third floor with a boudoir flanked by a giant walk-in closet and a master bath. There will be a hair salon across the hall and a separate closet for her luggage.
There is a second master bedroom on the same floor with master closet for her boy toy du jour.
In total, 10 bedrooms are planned and 13 bathrooms. The first floor has a drawing room and what is labeled on building plans as a "security living room" with adjoining bar.
The Georgian-style mansion also includes an elevator and two-car garage in what is described as the basement level, but is actually the ground floor. Madonna is adding a wine cellar and playroom one flight below.
Building permits filed with the city so far put the cost of renovations at $1.7 million.
