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.
