Leonardo DiCaprio Buys Green Condo in New York
Leonardo DiCaprio recently bought an apartment that is being touted by environmentalists as one of New York’s greenest condominiums.
DiCaprio has reportedly bought a unit in the new eco-friendly Riverhouse development on the waterfront in Manhattan’s Battery Park City, said an article posted on New York magazine’s web site.
The condos in the soon-to-be-completed 264-unit highrise have been LEED-certified gold, which is the second-highest rating for green buildings.
DiCaprio was seen riding his bike several times to the site’s sales office, but his publicist would only say:
“Riverhouse is a prime example of how green technology is both accessible and achievable for new residential developments – it is a groundbreaking building.”
The highrise also boasts a pool, yoga studio, children’s playroom, rooftop green landscaping, rotating photovoltaic cells that follow the trajectory of the sun, a media cafe, free bike storage and a dog spa.
