Hollywood It-girl Jennifer Lawrence is on the prowl for a Tribeca pad, and checked out a few ultra-exclusive apartments in the neighborhood last week. In addition to scoping out the penthouse of 140 Franklin Street, Curbed has on good authority that Lawrence also took in a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom model apartment at the "paparazzi-proof" conversion at 443 Greenwich Street.
The building isn't only impenetrable by the paparazzi, but also by nearly any kind of photographer. But as sales push on in the building, interior photographs from the CetraRuddy-designed conversion have finally come down the pipeline. The photos are the first real look into the project and deliver on everything its renderings promised, from marble and schist finishes, acid-etched glass, 8-inch oak parquet floors, and antique bronze and stainless steel accents.
The apartment toured by Lawrence is a 4,241-square-foot model apartment with four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms. Although this particular unit, 2A, isn't on the market, 3A is and is asking $14.4 million.
The swankified 1880s book bindery-turned-condo has been an easy sell among the monied elite. "We're creating an environments that is genuine TriBeCa yet also paparazzi-proof," MetroLoft principle Nathan Berman said in a statement. Those private amenities include drive-in, drive-out underground parking and a second lobby for residents wanting to take private elevators. The building also features a central courtyard only for building residents.
These exclusive features have appealed to the notoriously private and celebs alike, like the "international sports star" a source confirmed to Curbed as the buyer of the building's $54 million penthouse. The penthouse is currently vying for the title of Downtown's Priciest Digs and, depending on its closing price, may take the title from Walker tower's $50.9 million penthouse.
