(Updated 5:34 p.m.): Matt Damon may play ultra-stealth Jason Bourne on the silver screen, but when it comes to his New York City apartment search, he couldn’t be more on-the-radar. The actor, who currently resides in a rental unit at the Belnord, at 225 West 86th Street, and has been reportedly looking up and down Central Park West and Fifth Avenue in recent months, was spotted apartment-hunting all over the neighborhood again this weekend.

Broker sources confirmed to The Real Deal that he is looking for a permanent abode in the $12 million range. This weekend’s tour included veteran broker Agnes Nolan’s penthouse duplex at 271 Central Park West, currently on the market for $13.9 million, and apartments at both the Apthorp and at Extell Development’s 535 West End Avenue, according to the sources. He was seen taking a second look at the 535 West End Avenue unit today.

Damon, who also owns a loft on Lafayette Street, has been working with a number of brokers on his well-documented search. Previously reports have pegged him at the Beresford, the Majestic, 1010 and 1030 Fifth Avenue, as well as at Adam Gordon’s 26 West 76th Street townhouse, which the Post reported today has since sold to Avis rent-a-car billionaire Henry Silverman for $19.3 million.
