A $2 million real estate loss sounds like quite the hit, but to environmental activist and actor Leonardo DiCaprio, whose net worth is $217 million, it probably won’t make too big of a dent. Back in 2014, he dropped $10 million on a three-bedroom Greenwich Village condo in The Delos, an uber eco-friendly building that boasts vitamin C-infused showers, purified air and water, in-duct aromatherapy, and posture-supporting flooring. He rarely resided there (he owns another environmentally conscious apartment in Battery Park City), but has been renting the apartment for $25,000 a month since March 2015 to Bill Clinton’s economic policy advisor Jonathan Orszag. Now the Observer reports that the apartment has sold to an LLC for $8 million.

The boutique building, where Deepak Chopra also lives, has only six residences, including this third-floor, loft-like unit. It has 11-foot ceilings, an oversized living/dining area with giant, triple-glazed windows, and even more eco-luxe amenities like circadian rhythm lighting and bio-based insulation for optimal sound attenuation.

In the contemporary kitchen you’ll find African Anigre cabinetry, white polished quartzite countertops, a 78-bottle wine fridge, window box herbarium, and a built-in fruit/vegetable juicer.

There are three full baths, one powder room, and three bedrooms. The master suite comes with a large dressing room/walk-in closet and an ensuite bath outfitted with grey onyx, radiant heated limestone floors, custom oak vanities, a reflexology path, and a Jacuzzi Fuzion soaking tub.

Perhaps Leo is looking to find a pad with gal pal Nina Agdal (the tenth Victoria’s Secret model he’s dated), as he also just sold his 1930 Los Angeles ranch.
