Super Sized Space for Super Star Will Smith
WHO: Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
WHERE: New York City, NY
WHAT: Big ass apartment in NYC
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Your Mama thought it might be fun to piggy back on the Gimme Shelter column in the NY Post report who earlier reveal that exceedingly high paid actor Will Smith and his not nearly as well paid wife Jada Pinkett Smith shacking up in a leased loft in a swank new(er) building in lower Manhattan. Mister Smith, his family and their staff are in residence while he shoots the third installment of his insanely lucrative Men in Black film series. As one might expect of a Hollywood royal family like the Smiths, who will reportedly earn close to fifty million buck in 2010, their temporary crib in the Big Apple is a real damn doozy with a seriously outrageous floor plan.
The best way to take in this sprawling apartment is by the numbers: 7,326 square feet spread out over an entire floor of the building, 5 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, 4 fireplaces, 2 balconies, 2 of every appliance in the kitchen, 2 secure parking spaces in the direct access garage, 1 laundry room and a living/dining/media room that stretches a super market aisle long 89 feet from end to end.
It wasn't revealed what amount Mister and Missus Smith are coughing up to temporarily occupy this dee-luxe loft-like apartment, but according to the peeps at Streeteasy the unit was (last) listed as a rental on the open market in September of 2009 with a heart stopping monthly rent of $55,000.
Until it was removed the first week in November of 2010, the prairie like spread had also been on the sales market since March of 2009 when it was first listed with an asking price of $19,500,000. The most recent transactions in the boo-teek building were in December of 2008 and June of 2009 when half floor units sold for $6,950,000 and $7,750,000 respectively. In addition to an attended private garage–a true luxury in Manhattan–the 9-unit building offers 24-hour doorman and concierge services, a caterer's kitchen, individual lobby storage areas for deliveries, a residents only lounge and communal outdoor barbecue center.
The Smith clan's primary pad is a contempo-Mediterranean estate nestled into the Santa Monica Mountains between Malibu and Calabasas where they live in a 22,000+ square foot mansion with more than a dozen poopers. The list of celebrity-style amenities at the Smith's homestead include full sized lighted tennis and basketball courts, a sand volleyball court, lagoon style-swimming pool, batting cage, a home fitness facility that Your Mama would bet our long bodied bitches rivals the best Bally's around, a guest house or two, stables for the ponies and a private lake.
