Leonardo DiCaprio checks out the Sterling Mason

In his search for a new pad, Leonardo DiCaprio has shifted his sights to his old stomping grounds of Tribeca.

The actor, who recently wrapped production on Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” toured a $20 million penthouse at the Sterling Mason condominium building at 71 Laight Street, between Greenwich and Washington streets, the New York Post reported. The four-bedroom, five-bathroom condo takes up 4,986 square feet, the Post said.

Taconic Investment Partners developed the 33-unit building, which bears a metallic façade mirroring that of the 1905 warehouse original. Residents have access to a library, courtyard, gym and yoga studio. The three penthouses each feature a terrace, fireplace and “grand spaces for entertaining,” the Post said.

Also in Tribeca, DiCaprio looked at a 7,200-square-foot penthouse condo at 250 West Street that was asking $42 million, but is no longer on the market, the newspaper said.

Last month, he checked out apartments in Nolita and Soho, as well as a $30 million townhouse at 45 East 74th Street, as previously reported. [NYP, 3rd item]Mark Maurer

    I think DiCaprio would fit in very well at 56 Leonard, especially if he is looking to live in TriBeCa

      He will be next to Bobby D, who has been his mentor.

    Actually, the penthouse at 71 Laight Street is a near-perfect apartment. I’d be surprised if it lingers in this market.

    Tribeca is the best place in the city if you want to be invisible, no restaurants, no stores, no pedestrians, looks like everyone invest money in real estate there but no one actually lives
