Actor Leonardo DiCaprio has closed on his unit in Manhattan's new, eco-friendly Riverhouse development, paying $3,600,000 last month for his new outpost on Gotham.
In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can reveal that DiCaprio closed on his unit -- and, we can be the first to disclose the amount that the actor paid.
Back in April, when word first was shared by Riverhouse's obviously chatty developer that DiCaprio would be buying a unit in the environmentally friendly building, no details were (not surprisingly) provided on the amount, the unit's size or the floor where Leo was buying. Now, we can divulge a bit more: public records show that DiCaprio's RH-NYC, LLC company went to contract to purchase the deal on February 28, and closed it on October 6, with the deal being recorded on October 14. The total purchase price (including personal property) was $3,665,700, according to public records. The seller is shown in public records as being developer Site 16/17 Development, LLC.
It's a little unclear what level Leo will be on, since records show only that he's purchased unit "RH-1," whatever that is. However, given that records show that Unit RH-2 is one of the building's largest units (more than 2,300 square feet) and has one of Riverhouse's highest asking prices, it's not difficult to assume that RH-1 is either a penthouse unit or a duplex of some kind and probably is similarly sized.
Located at 1 and 2 River Terrace in Manhattan's Battery Park area and facing the Hudson River, the 32-story Riverhouse development has a total of 320 units.
Earlier today, we wrote about DiCaprio's other real estate holdings, including his recent listing of one of the three properties he owns in Malibu, Calif. Our work on that post prompted us to do some digging to try to learn whether DiCaprio had indeed closed on the Riverhouse unit.
