Formula One Racing Champion Lewis Hamilton snaps up Manhattan penthouse for a cool $40.7 Million just a block away from a luxury apartment he bought in 2017.
Formula One racing champion Lewis Hamilton forked out a cool $40 million for a stunning penthouse apartment in Manhattan.
The British native, 34, purchased the four bed penthouse in a celebrity studded condo project in Tribeca , just a block away from another penthouse he bought in 2017.
The penthouse is located at 70 Vestry Street , a limestone building designed by Robert A.M. Stern architects, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The property has four bedroom and spans 6,457 square feet in addition to more than 3,000 square feet of outdoor space. The home also has unobstructed views of the Hudson River.
Complete with a large courtyard, the development also has an 82-foot-long swimming pool, a squash court, a library and a lounge where its well-to-do residents can host dinners and cocktail parties.
The Wall Street Journal reported that one block east is Hamilton’s other apartment located at 443 Greenwich Street.
The loft-style apartment is located in a former book bindery, an indoor swimming pool and a wine cellar.
Other celebrities who have owned properties at the address include actors Jennifer Lawrence and Mike Myers.
Hamilton bought the unit in March 2017 through the same holding company as his latest purchase.
He won his fifth Formula One Title last year and became only the third driver in history to win so many times.
Hamilton officially resides in Monaco, owning an apartment in a block in which several Formula 1 drivers also live.
But the five-time world champion is an avid traveller, often hopping across continents when he’s not racing.
He is the most marketable driver in the sport, boasting endorsement deals with Mercedes-Benz, Tommy Hilfiger, Monster Energy, Puma, IWC, Sony, Bombardier, Bell Helmets, MV Agusta Motorcycles.
