Leonardo DiCaprio not buying $42M Tribeca condo?

July 21, 2013 04:00PM

It appears as though Leonardo DiCaprio is not in fact buying an apartment at 250 West Street in Tribeca, the Tribeca Citizen reported.

After The Real Deal received a tip that the actor, who recently wrapped production on Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” signed a deal for the 7,200-square-foot penthouse condo for $42 million, the Citizen received an email from Shawn Sachs of Sunshine Sachs, who presumably represents DiCaprio, denying the sale.

In the email, Sachs wrote: “Hi. Saw your story saying leo bought an apartment at 250 west. That isn’t true. Please update your reporting and in the future please reach out. Thanks.”

DiCaprio has been on the hunt for a new apartment. In addition to eyeing 250 West Street, he recently toured a $20 million penthouse at the Sterling Mason condominium building at 71 Laight Street, between Greenwich and Washington streets. The four-bedroom, five-bathroom condo takes up 4,986 square feet.

Last month, he checked out apartments in Nolita and Soho, as well as a $30 million townhouse at 45 East 74th Street[Tribeca Citizen] – James Comtois
