533 Canal Street

Celebrities, Cool Listings, Soho

There seems to be a celeb exodus underfoot at the Soho co-op 533 Canal Street (aka 477 Washington Street). Just last month Kirsten Dunst re-listed her vintage-cool penthouse in the building, and now the Post reports that indie actor buddies Casey Affleck and Joaquin Phoenix have put the semi-raw duplex loft on the seventh floor that they co-own on the market for $3,895,000. This could have something to do with the fact that the pair–who co-wrote the 2010 mockumentary “I’m Still Here”–will soon be ex-brother in laws. Last year, after 13 years together, Affleck and Phoenix’s sister Summer decided to part ways.

Kirsten Dunst bought this industrial-meets-rustic penthouse at 533 Canal Street (aka 477 Washington Street) in Soho back in 2007 for $3.09 million, claiming she needed a break from the L.A. lifestyle. But after a gut renovation that added a boatload of vintage charm, she put the loft on the rental market for $12,500 a month in late 2014. And now that she recently got engaged to her “Fargo” co-star Jesse Plemons, she seems more eager to unload the pad, as it’s just reappeared as a $5 million sale.

533 Canal Street, Michael Stipe

Michael Stipe, former lead singer for the 80’s rock band R.E.M., has sold his duplex penthouse at 533 Canal Street in Soho for $9.6 million, according to city records released today. Stipe listed the co-op in June 2012 for $10.95 million, after purchasing it in 2007 for $5.75 million while it was being renovating. The unit has an impressive celebrity past; Stipe bought it from Ben Affleck’s younger brother Casey, who bought it from “Good Will Hunting” director Gus Van Sant. And recently actress Kirsten Dunst put her penthouse in the building on the rental market for $12,500 a month.

The three-bedroom penthouse has a light-filled central atrium, 2,500-square-foot terrace with Hudson River views, and an industrial-style kitchen designed by Mario Batali. Stipe had said that he was looking to move further downtown to a loft/work space for himself and his partner.

With her Spider Man days behind her, Kirsten Dunst has put her Soho penthouse on the rental market for $12,500 a month, according to NYDN. She bought the two-bedroom apartment at 533 Canal Street for $3.09 million in 2007, citing that she needed a break from Los Angeles. Maybe she’s looking for a little more privacy now, as fellow celebs including Casey Affleck and director Gus Van Sant have also called the building home. The slightly quirky pad is available fully or partially furnished, which is a bonus since Dunst clearly has a good eye for comfortable furniture, vintage pieces, and industrial-chic decor.
