The Weeknd’s pricey rental at 443 Greenwich is up for grabs.

The Grammy Award-winning singer, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, has rented penthouse D at the star-studded Tribeca condo since 2018. The unit is now up for sale asking $27.5 million and the listing notes the apartment is “available immediately.”

Listing brokers Tal Alexander, Oren Alexander and Jared Schwadron of the Alexander Team at Douglas Elliman declined to comment. In an Instagram post, Tal Alexander wrote he was back in New York and available to give virtual tours.

The Alexander Team was credited with handling the singer’s lease back in 2018. At the time, the 5,200-square-foot triplex was asking $60,000 per month.

The listing hits the market at a time when inventory has plummeted and new contract signings for luxury properties hit an 11-year low.

It also comes days after a report that said The Weeknd had resigned his lease for the penthouse. A representative for The Weeknd did not respond to requests for comment.

The singer has plenty of other places he may be hunkering down during quarantine. Last November, he dropped $21 million on a condo in Los Angeles, and he also owns an estate in Hidden Hills, which he reportedly picked up for over $18 million in 2017.

His former New York home spans the upper three floors of developer Nathan Berman’s eight-story condo development. The four-bedroom has a media screening room, a chef’s kitchen and a more than 1,200-square-foot private roof deck outfitted with an outdoor kitchen area and sound system. It only shares an elevator bank with two other residences. The unit also comes with a parking spot and storage, according to Alexander’s Instagram account.

Berman’s Metro Loft Management began converting the former book bindery into 53 luxury condo units in 2014.

By the time The Weeknd moved in with then-girlfriend Bella Hadid in late 2018, 443 Greenwich had built a reputation for housing the stars. The Tribeca building’s roster of famous buyers includes actress Jennifer Lawrence, singer Harry Styles, comedian Mike Myers, Justin Timberlake, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds.

Penthouse D is one of four triplexes in the building, all of which range in size and features, according to the condo offering plans. Jet.com founder Marc Lore paid $43.78 million in 2018 for a unit with a pool and private elevator. Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton paid $43.99 million for another unit, which also had its own pool and elevator. A smaller unit sold for $20.18 million to an anonymous buyer.

The final unit, which The Weeknd called home, traded for just over $6 million in 2018 between two LLCs tied to Metroloft, property records show. The developer declined to comment.
