Brooklyn is crawling with celebrities these days, from Michelle Williams in Ditmas Park to Lena Dunham in Brooklyn Heights, and it looks like another notable actress is ready to come into the fold. The Post reports that Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o was spotted eyeing several condos in new Prospect Heights condo 550 Vanderbilt, one of the first buildings to come to fruition in the neighborhood’s Pacific Park megaproject.
A tipster says that while Nyong’o scoped out three different residences in the building, the apartment that most caught her attention was a $2.89 million three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom pad covering nearly 2,000 square feet. The apartment comes with a corner living room, Carrara marble kitchen island, 10-foot ceilings, and a corner master suite with a walk-in closet and en suite bathroom.
Residents of the COOKFOX-designed building will have access to a shared terrace, library, and gym, to name just a few amenities. In addition, the building is situated in the under-development eight-acre park that will connect the new neighborhood. Move-ins are slated to begin later this year.
