Attention those lucky enough to be living in Manhattan’s affluent Battery Park City neighborhood! Your newest neighbor just might be Leonardo DiCaprio. The environmentally-conscious actor has just purchased a condo in Riverhouse, a decked-out green building overlooking the Hudson River. “Riverhouse is a prime example of how green technology is both accessible and achievable for new residential developments—it is a groundbreaking building,” he told New York Magazine.

What are the green elements of Leo’s new home? E! Online lays it out:

“Among the features making the tony residence perfect for one of Hollywood’s first hybrid owners: a pholtovoltaic grid atop the building allowing tenants to soak up plenty of solar energy; park-style foliage planted atop 75 percent of all open roof space; 264 units decked out with locally obtained renewable materials and low- or nonpollutant paints, sealants and adhesives; and air and water filters to make sure its well-heeled residents aren’t sucking in anything nasty with their morning breath of fresh air.”

The building was also recently given LEED Gold-Certified status — the second-highest ranking assigned by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, which sets the standards for green building in the U.S.

DiCaprio and the paparazzi are expected to move in sometime this summer.
