The environmentally conscious actor has bought an apartment in Riverhouse, an eco-friendly building overlooking the Hudson River.
The purchase was confirmed on Friday by Christopher Daly, president of Sheldrake Organization, the developer of the Battery Park City complex. Occupancy is slated for this summer.
The 264-unit glass tower condominium overlooks the river and a park, and boasts low emission paints, a 24-hour fresh filtered air system, a water treatment facility and rotating solar panels.
The building also will house the City Bakery and a branch of the New York Public Library.
DiCaprio has served on the board of directors of the environmental organization Global Green USA. He also owns a hybrid car and had solar panels put on his Los Angeles home.
An e-mail sent to his publicist was not immediately returned.
