WASHINGTON: Actor Johnny Depp has reportedly bought a penthouse loft at the newly converted Eastern Columbia building for a whopping 2 million dollars.
The pad is in the apartment which is considered to be the most beautiful of Los Angeles’ historic buildings, and the finest surviving example of Art Deco following the 1969 destruction of Richfield Tower.
Sources have revealed that the Pirates of Caribbean star’s penthouse has private decks, and gives full views of downtown and the San Bernardino Mountains.
The building can be easily spotted due to its bright turquoise colour, TMZ reports. Developer Kor Group turned the property into condominiums that opened in fall 2006.
The actor’s new downtown neighbours include Grey’s Anatomy actor T.R. Knight and Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling. A representative for Depp was unavailable for comment. [source]
