Looks like the rumors were true: multi-hyphenate performer/former boy-band heartthrob Justin Timberlake and his wife, actress/kid-friendly restaurateur Jessica Biel, have indeed purchased one of the pricey penthouses atop 443 Greenwich Street.
The couple was reportedly checking out units in the building earlier this year, but according to city records, the deal is done. Timberlake bought the unit using an LLC that he previously used to purchase an apartment in—coincidence?—Tribeca’s Pearline Soap Factory.
This isn’t the first time Timberlake has made real estate moves downtown: After ditching the Pearline Soap pad in 2010, he moved to a penthouse in Soho Mews. But as his star has risen, so too have his real estate tastes; the final price for the 443 Greenwich pad was $20,185,527.38, to be extremely precise.
In a building full of penthouses, the particular unit the Biel-Timberlakes snagged is especially nice, thanks to its enormous private terrace, which is nearly as big as the apartment itself. The large (more than 5,000 square foot) pad comes with four bedrooms, four-plus bathrooms, tons of closet space, and an “entertainment room” that leads out onto that terrace.
Of course, 443 Greenwich’s paparazzi-proof promise—assured thanks to amenities like 24-hour concierge, private indoor parking, and a porte cochere, among the usual high-end perks—is also likely part of the appeal for the celebrity couple (and has allegedly drawn Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, among other famous folks, to the building).
For as expensive as this unit is, it’s still nowhere close to being 443 Greenwich’s priciest sale; that would be PHH, which sold for $44 million earlier this year.
