NEW YORK – Environment-conscious actor Leonardo DiCaprio is as good as his word. He's purchased an apartment in Riverhouse, an eco-friendly building overlooking the Hudson River in Manhattan.
The purchase was confirmed on Friday by Christopher Daly, president of Sheldrake Organization, the developer of the Battery Park City complex. Occupancy is slated for this summer.
The 264-unit condominium glass tower overlooks the river and a park, and boasts low emission paints, 24-hour fresh filtered air system, water treatment facility, and rotating solar panels.
DiCaprio seemingly also will have everything at his fingertips. The David Rockwell-designed high-rise features an indoor 50-foot lap pool, media cafe, fitness center, landscaped terrace — and dog spa.
An e-mail sent to his publicist was not immediately returned.
