NoMad Neighbor: Leonardo DiCaprio
6sqft and The New York Post are reporting that Leonardo DiCaprio is renting in a new Nomad Tower. It seems for the past few months he has been residing at 172 Madison Avenue, between 33rd and 34th Street.
The recently completed luxury condo from Tessler Developments currently has one- to three-bedroom units with chef’s kitchens and floor-to-ceiling windows priced from $1.55 million. The building amenities include a children’s playroom, a gym, a club room, spas for both humans and their pets, but — perhaps most inviting — a 67-foot saltwater pool.
DiCaprio, who is starring in a Charles Manson-themed movie by Quentin Tarantino set to be released in 2019, has been on hiatus since winning the Oscar for best actor for his role in 2015’s The Revenant — an unusually long time for a guy who, at 43, has appeared in at least 32 films. Perhaps best known for his roles in Titanic, Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, Revolutionary Road, The Great Gatsby and The Wolf of Wall Street, DiCaprio has won an Oscar, three Golden Globes and a BAFTA for Best Actor.
DiCaprio is also a star off-screen. After Titanic in 1997, he established the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, a non-profit devoted to promoting environmental awareness. He has been personally active in a broad range of environmental activities too numerous to list here. Just to touch on a few, Leonardo DiCaprio co-produced, co-wrote and narrated The 11th Hour, a documentary on people’s relationship to nature and global warming. He also executive-produced and appeared in Before the Flood, a 2016 documentary on global warming.
DiCaprio has sat on numerous boards, such as the World Wildlife Fund, Global Green USA, International Fund for Animal Welfare and the Natural Resources Defense Council. In October 2016, DiCaprio joined forces with Mark Ruffalo in North Dakota in support of the Standing Rock tribe’s opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline. In April 2017, he promoted and protested President Trump‘s inaction on climate change by attending the 2017 People’s Climate March. Leonardo DiCaprio is identified as one of the most active celebrities in the climate change movement.
Leonardo DiCaprio has and continues to make his mark on Hollywood and our world. He certainly deserves some downtime in that 67-foot saltwater pool.
