Celebrities in NYC Go for Luxury New Dev Digs

“Which Celebrities in NYC Are Snapping Up New Dev Properties?” The New York City gossip mill is abuzz with talk about Jennifer Lawrence, Matt Damon, and Gigi Hadid calling luxurious new developments home. The intrigue isn’t just about the luxury spaces these stars inhabit; it’s about the tantalizing prospect of sharing your daily life with Hollywood royalty. Imagine running into Jennifer Lawrence at the on-site gym, catching a glimpse of Matt Damon in the lobby, or spotting Gigi Hadid soaking up the sun at the rooftop pool. In a city where people pay a premium for exclusivity and social status, it’s the potential star-studded interactions that are making NYC’s new constructions projects the subject of conversation.

443 Greenwich

443 Greenwich is a prominent residential building located in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan. Originally constructed as a warehouse in the 19th century, it underwent a conversion by MetroLoft to become a collection of upscale residences. The building maintains its historic architectural features while integrating modern design elements. With amenities like a private courtyard and a spacious lap pool, 443 Greenwich offers residents a blend of historical charm and contemporary luxury. Its prime location in a vibrant neighborhood adds to its appeal as a distinctive residential option in the city. And appeal it has, to a whole range of top-tier celebs!

Jennifer Lawrence

A resident for over 5 years, this February the A-list actress made headlines by parting ways with her apartment in the star-studded and notably private Tribeca building. Property records indicate that the transaction was finalized at $9.75 million. Interestingly, the unit found its new owners in the form of three shell companies, all legally registered in Las Vegas.
Remarkably, this sale marks a financial gain from the actress’s initial investment of $9.03 million when she acquired the 3,100-square-foot unit in 2017. However, it’s worth noting that the final sale price falls short of the ambitious $11 million she initially sought when she enlisted the assistance of Compass’ Pamela D’Arc to list the property last June. Following a series of adjustments, the asking price was eventually lowered to just shy of $10 million before the successful transaction took place.

Jake Gyllenhaal

Like Lawrence, the handsome Hollywood hunk got himself a pad at 443 Greenwich back in 2017. He paid slightly less for his: $8.7 million, but his apartment still packs a punch. We’re sure the 2,868-square-foot living space has delivered on everything the star requires.

Meg Ryan

The building’s immunity to paparazzi scrutiny can be attributed to its privacy-centric features, encompassing a 4,000-square-foot interior courtyard, underground garage, and porte-cochere. Additional advantages comprise round-the-clock doorman service, valet and on-site manager assistance, a dedicated children’s play area, a generous 71-foot indoor swimming pool, a meticulously landscaped 5,000-square-foot roof terrace, and a fitness facility complete with a Turkish steam bath.
This all sounded good to Meg Ryan, who plonked down just over $10 million for an apartment back in 2017.

Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel

More comings and goings. Justin Timberlake is making a move from his Tribeca penthouse, bidding adieu to the trendy neighborhood. The accomplished pop star recently finalized the sale of his residence at 443 Greenwich Street, as per a report from the Wall Street Journal. In this off-market transaction, the spacious four-bedroom unit spanning 5,400 square feet changed ownership for a substantial $29 million.
Back in March 2017, Timberlake and his wife, actress Jessica Biel, acquired the property for $20.2 million. However, recent property records reveal that Penthouse G within the esteemed building was discreetly sold by an entity affiliated with Timberlake in December.
The buyer’s identity remains undisclosed, skillfully sheltered under the moniker Menemshovitz NY Realty—a corporation registered in Delaware. Douglas Elliman’s Tal Alexander facilitated the purchase on behalf of the buyer, orchestrating this noteworthy real estate endeavor.

10 Bond Street: Gigi Hadid

The Hadid sisters aren’t afraid to drop a chunk of change on New York real estate, as Gigi’s swanky apartment within throwing distance of Washington Sq. Park shows. Encompassing 2,085 square feet, this property boasts a configuration of two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, an ideal layout for the model and potentially a roommate. The architectural and interior design has been deftly curated by Selldorf, who harnessed the concept of modern elegance, aligning seamlessly with the preferences of a millennial influencer with a substantial Instagram following of 20.8 million. Throughout the apartment, a contemporary monochromatic color scheme of black, white, and beige further emphasizes the sleek aesthetic envisioned by Selldorf.
Upon entry to the second-floor apartment, one is greeted by expansive 10-foot 10-inch ceilings, while the mahogany-framed windows, measuring an impressive eight feet in height, contribute to the sense of grandeur. These substantial windows usher abundant natural light into each room, and for those moments of desired shade, electronically-controlled window treatments and automated lighting systems cater to personalized preferences for ambiance.

220 Central Park South: Sting

Sting officially joined the ranks of 220 Central Park South’s distinguished residents, having secured an opulent penthouse within Vornado’s exclusive and highly coveted Upper West Side condominium. The esteemed British musician acquired the penthouse for a substantial sum of $65.75 million, culminating in a sale that concluded in mid-July. Hot damn!
Sting, alongside his wife Trudie Styler, marked their presence early on as discerning home seekers within the luxurious Billionaires’ Row tower. The buzz surrounding their interest in the property began circulating as far back as 2016. The couple’s chosen apartment spans an expansive 5,800 square feet, housing three bedrooms and boasting both northern and southern exposures. This top-tier residence occupies the pinnacle of the “Villa” segment of the development, a distinct structure situated directly ahead of the soaring 950-foot limestone tower, conceived by the renowned Robert A.M. Stern.
Notably, this marks Sting’s second venture into Robert A.M. Stern’s artistic tributes to limestone. Previously, the musician had been a resident of a custom-designed penthouse at 15 Central Park West, which he sold for a considerable $50 million in 2017.

1 West End: Bruce Willis

Back in 2018, Bruce Willis and his wife Emma Heming embarked on a “downsizing” journey. The couple acquired a distinguished Upper West Side condominium near Lincoln Center for $7.9 million, a property that measures 3,055 square feet. This represents a considerable reduction from their previous abode, a spacious duplex adjacent to Central Park, spanning 6,000 square feet.
Their 37th-floor apartment comprises four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, basking in ample natural light thanks to 10.5-foot ceilings and expansive floor-to-ceiling windows. The living and dining room combination extends for more than 32 feet, creating an open and inviting ambiance. An eat-in kitchen, ideal for more relaxed home dining experiences, is a separate space offering imported walnut cabinetry, slab marble countertops, and polished chrome fixtures. This transition to a more streamlined residence showcases the couple’s evolving lifestyle preferences.

River Lofts: Meryl Streep

After a year and a half of endeavors, Meryl Streep successfully secured a buyer for her Tribeca penthouse. Alongside her husband, sculptor Don Gummer, Streep embarked on the quest to sell their four-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom residence at River Lofts in August 2018, initially listing the property for a substantial $24.6 million.
However, even the esteemed Meryl Streep is not immune to the ebb and flow of New York’s real estate landscape. Ultimately, the penthouse commanded a final sales price of $15.8 million, marking an $8.8 million reduction from its original ambitious asking price. Furthermore, this transaction falls short of the most recent valuation of $18.25 million, underscoring the intricate dynamics of pricing and negotiations within the city’s real estate realm.
