Hollywood heartthrob and perpetual Oscar hopeful Leonardo DiCaprio looks to be expanding his Battery Park City digs at 2 River Terrace.

DiCaprio, who’s had a home at the eco-friendly building since 2008, nabbed the adjacent unit from neighbors Steven Gidumal and Allison Keeley for $8 million, according to public records reviewed by The Real Deal. The acquisition likely means DiCaprio can occupy a much larger footprint at the building, which overlooks the Hudson River.

The move by DiCaprio comes just months after it was reported that the actor had bought an apartment at 66 East 11th Street, a health and wellness-themed condo at 66 East 11th Street by developer Delos Living. DiCaprio reportedly became an investor in the development, which also boasts advisers such as wellness guru Deepak Chopra.

Gidumal and Keeley were the owners of the Battery Park unit since 2008, when they bought it for just $4.17 million, public records show.

DiCaprio bought his unit for $3.67 million that same year using a limited liability company named RH-NYC. The LLC is also the buyer of the apartment next door.

When contacted by The Real Deal, Gidumal, a management consultant and financial adviser, declined to comment on the deal. The unit does not appear to have been publicly listed for sale.

The 2,327-square-foot, two bedroom apartment has 1,035 square feet of outdoor space, according to a listing for the unit from 2008. The building’s amenities include an exercise room and health club, a valet, laundry service and a play room for children.

So far, DiCaprio has not filed plans to combine the units, according to the Department of Buildings website.

A spokesperson for the actor was not immediately able to provide a comment.
