Bad boy Will Smith and family were spotted checking out a convertible two-bedroom penthouse at 640 Broadway earlier this week. The 2,200-square-foot corner unit in question features 12-foot ceilings, a 1,000-square-foot roof terrace that's accessed by a glass staircase, and an open layout. A source close to the celebrity told the NYP that while Smith liked the $19,900 per month loft in the 640 NoHo building, he found it wasn't private enough. The penthouse of the 1896 building designed by Macy's Herald Square architects DeLemos & Cordes has been on the market for over 100 days.
Smith formerly nestled in New York at the five bedroom, six-and-a-half bathroom fourth floor unit at BKSK's glitzy 25 Bond, which once asked $55,000 per month and makes the 640 NoHo penthouse look rather utilitarian. Maybe when Smith referred to the 640 NoHo loft as "not private enough," what he really meant was "not [the opulent] 25 Bond."
