British Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton shelled out almost $44 million for a penthouse at press-proof 443 Greenwich in March of 2017; according to public records, it is likely that he sold it a year later.
As 2019 begins, the professional racer has been intent on picking up another pricey high-rise penthouse in Tribeca. Hamilton stopped by Robert A.M. Stern’s limestone instant classic 70 Vestry over the holidays to lay down $41 million to put a penthouse in that building into contract.
70 Vestry is one of the most recognizable addresses in the city. In 2017, Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen bought the second unit they’ve owned in the building, spending $30 million to move to a higher floor.
Stern used limestone from a specific French quarry to express the exterior of 70 Vestry; the unique stone is noted for its grain and reflective quality. Interior architecture and living style in 70 Vestry come by way of Daniel Romualdez Architects. The look is subdued but quite warm.
70 Vestry’s unique design includes a private courtyard. The building’s amenities include an 82’ swimming pool, kid’s pool, steam room, sauna, fitness center, library, café, billiards room and lounge, and entertainment/dining space.
Lewis Hamilton currently races for AMG, but he started his remarkable career driving for McLaren. His net worth is in the neighborhood of $300 million.
