Although Justin Timberlake was spotted scoping out an $18.5 million Greenwich Village penthouse last month, he chose Tribeca to call home with wife Jessica Biel and their two-year-old son, Silas. According to the Real Deal, the power couple signed a deal for a penthouse at 443 Greenwich Street. Built in 1882 and recently restored by CetraRuddy Architects, the building boasts an interior courtyard, underground garage, 71-foot indoor swimming pool and landscaped roof terrace, so it’s no wonder celebrities are flocking here. Former residents include Mike Myers, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, Jennifer Lawrence, and Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton. While the exact unit the couple bought remains unclear, Penthouse G is currently under contract for $27.5 million.

“It’s freedom, baby, yeah!” At least from his Tribeca apartment. Mike Myers bought a $14.65 million loft in 443 Greenwich Street at the beginning of the year, but clearly had sudden a change of heart, re-listing it just a week later for the slightly higher price of $15 million. And now, only a month after purchasing the pad, it’s gone into contract, according to LL NYC. Now if only he could so easily unload his $15.95 million Mercer Street penthouse.
Nah, baby, nah… It took just a week for Mike Myers to change his mind about purchasing a sprawling $14.65 million loft in Tribeca’s 443 Greenwich Street. The Observer reports the funnyman has just relisted the 4,241-square-foot spread for a slightly higher $15 million. While it’s not clear what prompted his decision, Myers’ move gives us a fresh look inside the four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom condo currently being marketed by Compass. The firm incidentally is also trying to help him sell his Mercer Street penthouse, currently going for $15.95 million.
The red-brick, former warehouse building at 443 Greenwich Street in Tribeca was converted to boutique condos by CetraRuddy Architects and developer Metro Loft Management in 2014, and since then it’s been attracting quite a bit of high-profile interest thanks to its low-profile location, luxurious lofts, and wealth of amenities. The latest celeb to cash in here is Mike Myers; the Observer reports that he and wife Kelly Tisdale have dropped $14.65 million on a four-bedroom spread (more than the $14.25 million list price). The funnyman has been trying to sell his Soho penthouse since April 2015, and though there’s no word that it’s found a buyer, that could very well be the reason for the move.
He’s been called the King of FiDi with over 2200 apartments under his management. The founder and principal of Metro Loft Management, Nathan Berman specializes in transforming landmark office buildings into luxury rentals. He recently acquired the leasehold for 20 Broad Street, the former New York Stock Exchange building, and plans to convert it to white-glove rental apartments. Other properties include 20 Exchange Place, a 1931 Art Deco office building that used to be the City Bank-Farmers Trust Building, and the former Munson Shipping Company headquarters at 67 Wall Street. Both buildings were converted into luxury rental apartments with condominium finishes and features.
Over the years, Berman has developed a profitable formula that’s yielded some of the most architecturally distinguished rental buildings in lower Manhattan. Ahead, Berman explains his focus on the rental market, as well as his first foray into the world of condos with the uber-luxe 443 Greenwich Street.
