Johnny Depp to Do Penthouse

7/27/2007 4:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Land Ho! Captain Jack Sparrow is sailing into a swanky loft in glamorous downtown L.A., mateys!
Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp, the super suave A-Lister has been living in France for years, and now he's just plunked down about $2 million on a penthouse loft at the newly converted Eastern Columbia building. TMZ spies say the Francophile's new pied-a-terre at the turquoise Art Deco landmark, features private decks, sweeping views of downtown and the San Bernardino mountains.

Johnny's new downtown neighbors include "Grey's Anatomy" Star T.R. Knight and Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling.

A rep for Depp did not immediately return our request for comment.

Wish Johnny's pirate side kick, Orlondo Bloom would move here too. Maybe we could find some good movies for them to do together until they come up with another Pirates.

I'm not suprised that he'd live here. A building that's one of the best examples of art deco in LA would be desired by many people with interesting taste. I know this building and it's amazing. I'd love to live there. It's a gritty neighborhood that is up and coming - sounds about right for him.

Depp's middle finger    

TMZ picked up on this but not the story of him on his private yacht (which was about 11 million dollars by the way) with the wonderful Vanessa Paradis shame some nice nice pics.

TMZ, while you're at it, get Lexie's stuff off your site. Lexie's a somewhat possessed Johnny Depp troll who has posted the most bizarre, unfounded, hateful crap about JD every time TMZ writes an article about him.

Could this be a real estate deal for Johnny?....maybe, to rent it out to others?...He already owns homes/property around the is true though he owns an estate in Beverly Hills. Also, it is true when Johnny comes into Los Angeles and the nearby surrounding area, the media always reports Johnny stays at hotels like the "Beverly Hilton Hotel "in Beverly Hills....etc. So, then, the question is, why doesn't he stay at his gorgeous Beverly Hills mansion?...renting that out, too? or, maybe, his siblings/mother live there? the "Eastern Columbia Building "penthouse, maybe, is just another real estate investment action??? He would live there while some of his other estates are worth millions of dollars more in more secluded areas?

No, please NO! Downtown Los Angeles is a DUMP!! Why would anyone pay $2 Million dollars to live on 'Skid Row' with the druggies, mentally ill, and homeless criminals that live on the streets of that filthy area?! The worthless Mayor is too busy having an affair with an NBC/ Telemundo reporter to care about cleaning up the disgusting streets around that building- major disappointment .
