U2's Edge, who also is known as Dave Evans, has settled into a loft penthouse in New York City's TriBeCa area that he purchased some months back for $4,276,650, and the musician also reportedly has paid close to $15 million for a 120-acre property in Malibu, Calif.

In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report that Evans, 45, paid nearly $4.3 million last year for the 12th-floor, 5,198-square-foot unit in the vintage Sky Lofts building at 145 Hudson Street in TriBeCa, according to public records. Also, Evans, who already owns a 3,970-square-foot house on a small lot in Malibu that he purchased in 2000, has expanded his real-estate holdings dramatically in the Malibu area, buying the massive property for close to $15 million, the Los Angeles Times is reporting.

In New York, Evans purchased his loft unit in the 14-story, Art Deco-style yellow brick building, which was built in 1928 and converted from industrial use into residential condominiums in 2000. Units in the doorman building have 12-foot ceilings, Bulthaup cherry and stainless steel kitchens, Rogers Marvel-designed bathrooms, fireplaces, walls of casement windows with panoramic views and white oak hardwood floors, according to listing information. In addition, there are only two lofts per floor.

Evans' unit had been listed for $4.2 million, according to listing information. Unfortunately, more detailed listing information for the specific unit that Evans purchased does not appear to be available online.

In Malibu, the Los Angeles Times' Ruth Ryon reported on Sunday that Evans had purchased the large property with a cottage and a creek on it. The sale does not appear to have cleared public records yet, so we can't independently confirm the sale--or the amount. When we get that information, we'll provide it here. However, it's worth noting that Evans paid exactly $2 million in 2000 to purchase his house at 21409 Calle del Barco in Malibu, according to public records. Built in 1932, the two-bedroom house has four baths and a pool, according to public records.
