Justin Timberlake snags Tribeca penthouse

From The Real Deal: Justin Timberlake is bringing sexy back to Tribeca, not that it was ever really gone.

The pop star and his wife, actress Jessica Biel, have inked a deal to buy a penthouse at 443 Greenwich Street, according to a source with knowledge of the deal.

If the transaction closes, Timberlake and Biel would be the latest in a long line of celebrities gobbling up units at the building.

Sources previously told The Real Deal that Lewis Hamilton, the British Formula One driver best known in the U.S. for his on-and-off relationship with Pussycat Doll singer Nicole Scherzinger, bought another of the penthouses, which was asking $54 million. Power couple Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively also bought there, as did “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence.

It’s not immediately clear which unit the singer bought, but the most likely candidate is a 5,375-square-foot, four bedroom, four bathroom pad that went under contract this month. The last asking price for that unit — Penthouse G — was $27.5 million, or $5,116 per square foot. [more]
