Inside the 'paparazzi-proof' New York building where penthouses are selling for €50.5 million

Jennifer Lawrence was just one celebrity who showed interest.

IT IS COMMON practice for high-end condo buildings to tout all kinds of amenities to attract buyers.

But 443 Greenwich, a luxury building in the Tribeca neighbourhood of New York, claims to have an entirely different perk: it’s apparently “paparazzi proof”.

While the building’s management can’t comment on the identity of its residents, it has been reported that the building’s ”paparazzi-proof” architectural features — such as its lower-level parking and interior courtyard garden — have proved attractive to high-end clients who value their privacy.

Jennifer Lawrence reportedly looked into buying property there, and Mike Myers purchased a $14.65 million (€13.7 million) loft in the building earlier this month. However, just a week later, Myers put it back on the market with a slightly higher price of $15 million (€14.03 million).

According to real estate agents at Cantor-Pecorella, 66% of the units have been sold, and 50% are currently occupied. As for the eight penthouses, two are still available — one of which is listed for $27.5 million (€25.72 million), the other for $55 million (€51.43 million). Prices for the lofts range from $3.5 million to $14.5 million (€3.27 million to €13.56 million).

Built in 1882, the 443 Greenwich building was originally a book bindery. Today, it’s a landmarked building with 53 residential condominiums, including eight penthouses.


One of the building’s major privacy-geared benefits is its lower-level lobby and parking space, guarded by wrought-iron gates. The building has on-site valet parking.


The lobby has a view out to the courtyard garden.


Located in the centre of the building, this garden is a private, quiet space for residents.


Along with a fitness centre, there’s also a 75-foot lap pool.


Some of the penthouses have a private terrace along with their own pool.


Inside the seven-story building, lofts like this four-bedroom home range from 2,000 to 5,000 square feet. The penthouses range from 3,500 to 9,500 square feet. The six penthouses that have been sold ranged in price from $15 million to $54 million.
