Luxury Properties: Leonardo DiCaprio became an actor of world-renowned status from his role as a common man cavorting with the rich in the box-office smash feature film Titantic. DiCaprio's recent splashy real estate dealings on East and West coasts transactions are relatively dramatic in a market where there is more looking than doing. The gigantically famous actor is a two-fisted dealer with one buy in Manhattan and one listing off in Malibu, according to Berg Properties' Big Time Listings.

Leonardo the capricious just closed on a NY apartment for approximately $3.6 million in the eco-luxe extraordinaire Riverhouse One Rockefeller in Battery Park City. Overlooking the Hudson River, the high-rise community of affluent VIPs consists of 320 units on 32 floors. The world within the city brims with deluxe amenities and green systems that promote ultimate sustainability and sensibility.

A resident of the Riverhouse could move in and never leave home again! There is a media café, a fitness center, a lap pool, a billiard room, and an outdoor terrace. Additionally, there is a children's playroom and a doggie spa.

The David Rockwell-designed Riverhouse is an example of the new wave of luxury-properties that support the indulgence-with-a-conscience movement at the forefront of most new property developments.
