Pop singer-songwriter/record producer/dancer/actor/comedian Justin Timberlake has paid $4,774,000 to purchase a three-bedroom, 2,995-square-foot condominium unit in the Pearline Soap Factory condominium building in Manhattan's TriBeCa neighborhood.


Big credit to the New York Post's fine celebrity real estate columnist Braden Keil for closely tracking this story over the last few weeks. Keil first reported last Thursday on Timberlake (pictured here with Janet Jackson at the infamous Super Bowl) having gone to contract to purchase the full-floor, fifth-floor unit, and then he broke the story today (Thursday) of Timberlake having closed on the unit, which is in the building at 414 Washington Street in TriBeCa (although the residential units carry an address of 78 Laight Street in TriBeCa).


Records show that Timberlake's Just Us I, LLC went to contract to purchase the unit on October 24, with the deal officially closing on November 13. The transaction then was recorded with New York City officials on November 19 (the "full sale price" -- which includes personal property -- was $4,774,574), according to public records. The seller was shown as being developer Atlantic Walk, LLC.

As Keil noted, Timberlake's unit had been listed for $5,250,000. Features in the unit include a 52-foot-long living/dining room area, three baths, a gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances (a Wolf cooktop with a grill, a Wolf double wall oven, a 48-inch Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine cooler, a Miele dishwasher and a Miele washer/dryer), 14 floor-to-ceiling arched windows facing all four directions (it *is* a full-floor unit, after all!), views over the Hudson River, a built-in Sonos sound system, a lighting system, and electronic shades, according to listing information.

Timberlake continues to own his mansion in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills, which he purchased in 2002 for $8,300,000 and which we have written about on several occasions, including on May 7, 2007.
