Bill Gates’ eldest daughter, Jennifer Gates, could now call a $51 million penthouse in New York.
The huge apartment at 443 Greenwich St., a well-known address for celebrities, is located in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan.
A representative from CetraRuddy, the architectural firm that designed the building, told CNBC Make It that it has housed other famous faces, including Meg Ryan, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds.
Gates, who is married to Olympic athlete Nayel Nassar, reportedly bought the penthouse belonging to Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton through a Seattle-based trust. In March, the couple welcomed their first child and Gates’ first grandchild.
Jennifer Gates is an award-winning equestrian who graduated from Stanford University with a degree in human biology and currently attends the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City.
The penthouse is 8,900 square feet and has 3,400 square feet of outdoor space with a plunge pool. Includes six bedrooms, six bathrooms and two shower rooms.
“We tried to plan the unit in such a way that residents could have privacy but also enjoy views from outside and inside the building,” said Theresa Genovese, director of CetraRuddy Architecture, at CNBC Make It.
“The way we designed the apartments to let in as much natural light as possible is one of the reasons the building is so popular,” he added.
Gates’ three-level penthouse is the largest residence in the 53-unit building. It has access to its own private elevator and bank of elevators and comes with two of the building’s 15 parking spaces.
Other design details include pine beams, restored windows, chef’s kitchen, wet bar and gas fireplace. The building itself has a 70ft indoor pool, gym, yoga rooms, children’s playroom, bike storage and wine storage.
Genovese said celebrities particularly appreciate that the building was designed with more elevators than needed for the number of apartments. This feature allows residents to get from their apartment to their car without having to move.
In addition to its own outdoor space, Gates can take advantage of the indoor patio and rooftop outdoor common space, a rarity in New York.
“It’s almost like an oasis up there too. There are a lot of different options, so I can see why people would find it interesting to buy a unit in the building,” Genovese said.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation did not immediately respond to CNBC Make It’s request for comment.
