The past few weeks have been an exciting time for actor/singer Justin Timberlake. His performance in The Social Network is garnering Oscar buzz, and he is rumored to be selling his loft in Tribeca and picking up a new penthouse in SoHo.

Timberlake purchased his 3 bed/3 bath loft only two years ago. Located at 414 Washington Street, he is currently within walking distance from St. John’s Park, Wolfgang’s Steakhouse in Tribeca, and the Hudson River Greenway. According to reports, Timberlake will be moving to the SoHo Mews.

Whether this move is real or not, it is sure to shake up the paparazzi for a little while, and Timberlake’s fans will be flocking to SoHo, hoping to see the famous singer/actor out and about.

Recently, pop sensation Lady Gaga was spotted checking out a 3-bedroom 3 bathroom penthouse apartment in SoHo. The apartment building, located at 304 Spring Street, is also home to Australian director Baz Luhrmann. Amenities include a private sundeck complete with outdoor shower and Viking kitchen.

Here is what agent Pia Dubitsky says about this truly unique apartment located in Chelsea NYC.

I just found the craziest apartment in Chelsea and when the right person sees it they are going to fall over themselves to get it!  It’s a mix of a medieval stone cottage and a Guadi inspired playground perfect for an artist or someone with a creative mind.  The windows are all stained glass, the walls are all original stone, the bathroom is impeccably designed with copper metal work on the ceiling and a multi-colored tile-enclosed shower with a sitting area.  Then there is the solarium… a huge private covered backyard area with a fire pit which would make an unbelievable backdrop for a chic Chelsea artist cocktail party.  Beautiful stone work and surprises at every turn- such a find!  I love to entertain so I can appreciate a great entertaining space and I would hook this place up with lanterns, candles, art and throw some sick parties.  Maybe my enthusiasm will sell the place?  Better yet,  I should just throw a party there instead of an open house!

Art Showing Review

August 6, 2009

We recently hosted an art showing at the ground floor loft at 45 White Street in Tribeca.  Here is a review posted by an attendee.  Stay tuned for more events at 45 White Street, The Signature Lofts in Tribeca.

…”I recently attended an art show in a gorgeous space on White Street in Tribeca at the invitation of a coworker.  The show was a mix of abstract paintings and what looked like mixed media city scenes of New York by two up and coming NYC artist.  There was wine and food and music and an overall jovial feel to the evening.  A good crowd showed up despite the rain and we all had a great time and I met a lot of interesting and entertaining people.  And I truly enjoyed looking at and discussing the paintings.  Two of the the abstracts were very large, standing about as tall and wide as I do, and they looked magnificent on the 15′ walls.  When I move into my next apartment I hope to have a such a gorgeous downtown loft with such high ceilings and I will surely look this artist up to help me fill my walls!…”

The artist was Pia Dubitsky.
