The 1 Big Reason A-List Celebrities Can't Buy in This NYC Building Fast Enough
Luxury and privacy seem to be at the top of A-list celebrities' real estate wish lists. Case in point: 443 Greenwich, an NYC apartment building loaded with amenities to support both a posh and discreet lifestyle. Since the overhauled landmarked building, originally a 19th century book bindery, was reopened as a residential property in 2015, it's been a magnet for superstars. Actor Jake Gyllenhaal is just the latest rumored buyer. He's said to be joining residents including Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, Jennifer Lawrence, Harry Styles, and Meg Ryan. That's a lot of pedigree crammed into one building — especially considering there are only 45 lofts and eight penthouses in the entire property, ranging from just over $8 million for a three-bedroom to $55 million for the sprawling five-bedroom Penthouse A.
In addition to the spacious digs — penthouses are 3,500-9,500 square feet and lofts will range from 2,000-5,000 square feet — the building boasts top-of-the-line amenities, such as a 24-hour doorman to ensure safety and a live-in resident manager always ready to be at your service. When it comes to exiting and arriving, tenants need not worry about prying eyes because underground parking, complete with valet, makes it easy to sneak in and out. For recreation, there's a 71-foot indoor swimming pool, a children's playroom, a 5,000-square-foot landscaped community rooftop terrace, a tranquil courtyard, a private fitness studio complete with men's and women's locker rooms, and even a Turkish bath! And for the wine connoisseurs among the set, there's a temperature-controlled wine cellar. Wow, we're beginning to understand why celebs are paying big bucks to get into 443 Greenwich!
