It’s common practice for high-end condo buildings to tout all kinds of amenities to attract buyers. But 443 Greenwich, a luxury building in the Tribeca neighbourhood of New York, claims to have an entirely different perk: it’s apparently “paparazzi-proof.”

While the building’s management can’t comment on the identity of its residents, it has been reported that the building’s “paparazzi-proof” architectural features — such as its lower-level parking and interior courtyard garden — have proved attractive to clients who value their privacy.

Recently, actor Jake Gyllenhaal is said to have purchased a $US8.63 million three-bedroom unit in the building, joining rumoured neighbours like actress Rebel Wilson, singer Harry Styles, and Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. Other big names like Jennifer Lawrence, Ryan Reynolds, and Blake Lively have reportedly also bought property there. Earlier this year, actor Mike Myers purchased a $US14.65 million loft in the building, but just a week later, he put it back on the market. It later sold for $US14 million.

As for the eight penthouses, one is still available for $US55 million. Prices for the available lofts range from $US3.9 million to $US14.5 million.

Ahead, take a look inside one of the building’s gorgeous four-bedroom condos.
