English actor, Orlando Bloom, recently purchased a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom loft at 155 Franklin Street in trendy Tribeca for an estimated $4.8 million. The airy apartment features exposed brick, thick beamed ceilings and an open chef’s kitchen. The building was constructed in 1882; cast iron columns supporting the joists remain part of the rustic-looking yet modern industrial décor.
The star of movies such as the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Pirates of the Caribbean and, ironically, New York – I Love You, will be yet another famous tenant of the Sugarloaf Condo complex.
The penthouse suite previously owned by Lord of the Rings director, Peter Jackson, has been purchased by country music phenom Taylor Swift for $20 million.
