Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton trades Tribeca penthouse for $50M
The daughter of Bill and Melinda French Gates is trading East Harlem for Tribeca.
A Seattle-based trust tied to Jennifer Gates paid $51 million for a penthouse at Metro Loft Management’s 443 Greenwich Street last month, the New York Post reported. Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton owned the unit before selling to a Seattle-based LLC in 2021 for $49.5 million.
The six-bedroom condo includes a 3,200-square-foot terrace and a private elevator operating across the unit’s three levels. The 8,900-square-foot unit carries more than $18,000 in monthly common charges, according to the listing at the time of Hamilton’s sale.
The penthouse has six bedrooms, six bathrooms, two powder rooms and two of the building’s 15 parking spaces. There’s also outdoor seating, a plunge pool and a gas fireplace in the living room.
Hamilton purchased the unit in 2017 from developer Nathan Berman for $44 million. Two years later, the race car driver listed it for $57 million, but couldn’t steer it towards a deal.
The eight-story, 53-unit building includes a pool, gym, sauna, steam room, playroom and roof deck. The privacy-centric building has counted a slew of celebrity residents, including Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, Jennifer Lawrence, Justin Timberlake and Harry Styles.
Gates and Olympic equestrian Nayel Nassar were married in October 2021 at her $16 million Westchester home. The couple share a child.
Gates’ parents bought her a condo unit at 1212 Fifth Avenue in East Harlem for $5 million. That home was recently placed back on the market via the same trust used to make the 443 Greenwich purchase, listing for $4.8 million.
